Fo­cused and full of en­ergy, Ken is orig­i­nally from Tai­wan. A mem­ber of Se­bas­tian De­sign Artist Team, he is well-known for work­ing his magic on ev­ery­thing from run­way mod­els to editorials. He was in­vited to style the hair of the lead cast of Fuerza Bruta when they were in Tai­wan. Ken has also won nu­mer­ous awards in Tai­wan namely Se­bas­tian and Wella hair com­pe­ti­tions from 2000-2005.

What got you into the world of hair­dress­ing?

As a child, when­ever I vis­ited the salon, I was fas­ci­nated by the life­style. I started off as a free­lancer for Wella Pro­fes­sion­als. The de­sire to step up and be­come a more cel­e­brated stylist is what fu­elled me fur­ther.

What are the things that you want In­dian stylists to learn?

Th­ese days, women love to wear their hair long. I want the In­dian stylists to im­bibe the unique tech­niques of in­ner lay­er­ing, back­com­ing and fin­ger comb­ing so as to cre­ate tex­ture and move­ment.

Tell us some­thing about the look you cre­ated.

The look is an at­ten­tion-grab­bing con­trast of el­e­ments.

S/S ’14 trends…

Con­trast lay­ers are to­tally in this sea­son. If you have long hair, a short and medium fringe will make you look fresh and young. If you’re plan­ning on colour­ing your hair, go for cool reds and warm browns. A tinge of vi­o­let will give you a softer look.

Fave prod­ucts…

The pro­tein-rich Whipped Crème for nour­ished locks, Thick­efy Foam for body and Shaper Zero Grav­ity — a light­weight hair­spray for a sup­ple hold.
