Judge’s Stylist Pick
TAKESHI ODERA, style director of Number 76 salon, Mid Valley Megamall What is your philosophy? I always say that hair is free; you can perm it, colour it, straighten it, and you can learn and grow from trying different things. There is always space to expand my knowledge. The one hair product you can’t live without? Shampoo. Without it, you can’t have a clean, healthy scalp and hair. Interesting tip to share? If a little perm was done on a customer who had rebonding done recently, the hair would look very healthy. Who or what is on your moodboard now? Basically, my inspiration comes from people you see around you every day, in the city or at work. I often check for new trends in Japan.
