Tell us a bit more about yourself?

“I was born and raised in Gangnam, South Korea. I was trained at Tony & Guys in London and South Korea. I  have 10 years hairstyling experience in Gangnam, South Korea and Singapore.”

What made you decide to work in Singapore?

I was in Singapore in 2006 for Tony & Guys Hairstyling Training. And I was inspired by Singapore – it is so clean and beautiful. I wanted to return to Singapore to work and learn English.”

How do you define Korean Style?

Korean Style is glamourous and has alot of volume.  Also, Korean Style changes according to season, like in summer, hairstyle is long hair and ladies can tie it up. In winter, hairstyle is short so that it is easier to put a scarf around it. In autumn, hairstyle is long or medium. And in Spring, hairstyle is medium length.

What advice can you give for someone who wants a Korean Hair Make Over?
