Judge’s Stylist Pick

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Bazaar Hair Awards 2014 -

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.

“Knowl­edge­able and pro­fes­sional, he knew right away what ad­vice to dole out based on the con­di­tion of my hair. Odera was ex­cel­lent.” – Keith Foo
