As the year is coming to an end, we look forward to another 365 brand new days before us. Hold on to what is good, while let go of what is bad.

Before we enter 2019, here are our highlights of 2018, in no particular order.

1. Beauty Arts Kobe

If you want happiness for a lifetime, help the next generation- Chinese proverb 

It was a great opportunity for us to share our knowledge with the students from Kobe. Kudos to Justin and Lai for organizing the workshops in Singapore and Kobe. And thank you Goldwell Singapore for supporting us as always. Hope to see you again soon!

2. Keeping your Crown Shiny

To shine your brightest light is to be who you truly are.- Roy T. Bennett 

To share with our dearest customers the dynamic hair care and styling experience that Dyson Supersonic hair dryers brings, we have replaced all our hair dryers with its Professional edition. At the same time, we launched a special Dyson Supersonic Smooth hair treatment at our flagship salon, Ngee Ann City, in collaboration with Shiseido Professional.

This year, we have also launched 2 new color services: Tsuyagami treatment, a special hair coloring and glossing treatment that makes your hair shine, and Kinugami color, a treatment color service built from skincare technology that replenishes the color and restore the moisture to your hair for a smoother and softer finish.

And of course, how can we forget about our latest collaboration with drHair that brings you all the best solutions to your scalp issues?

If you have not tried it yet, why not pop by and give it a try to give yourself a fancy new look for the new year.
