Christopher Kelly said, "Antin's droning, cooler-than-thou voice drips with disdain. He glowers at his employees, berates them for giving bad haircuts, complains that they aren't bringing in enough new clients. Before every commercial break, someone is on the verge of tears and/or about to be fired." Antin acknowledged his outbursts, and stated that he was apologetic at the time. On the show, Antin tells his employees that it's because he respects them so much that he rides them, and he really does love them. In its first season Jay Leno and Kirsten Dunst appeared on the show.

He was a judge in 2010 on third season of the reality-series Shear Genius. Antin joined the cast of L.A. Hair in 2015.
