HIGH­LIGHTS

Hail­ing from South Korea, the tal­ented Min Byung Kwon has cer­tainly made his pres­ence felt both lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, styling the hair of stars such as Karen Mok and Deanna Yu­soff. With more than 18 years of in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure, he is well versed in the lat­est Korean and Ja­panese hair­styles and tech­niques. Com­bined with the creative free­dom of Aveda prod­ucts, Min’s ex­per­tise gives his clients that sought-af­ter Asian touch.

SA­LON SPEAK

An Aveda Ex­clu­sive Sa­lon, Min In­ter­na­tional Hair Stu­dio rep­re­sents the brand well with its beau­ti­ful, raw wooden floors and the in­cred­i­ble por­trait of a tree that evokes the feel­ing of be­ing one with na­ture. En­joy or­ganic Aveda tea while your tresses are pam­pered and styled. And don’t leave with­out ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the amaz­ing Aveda hand rit­u­als per­formed by Min’s highly trained staff.

NEED TO KNOW

Ev­ery year, Min re­turns to Ja­pan and South Korea to keep him­self up­dated on evolv­ing Ja­panese and Korean tech­niques. He also be­lieves prac­tice makes per­fect, no mat­ter how much ex­pe­ri­ence he has un­der his belt. Min pre­dicts a soft, model-off-duty look with a bit of an edge as the next big trend for the up­com­ing sea­son. “To cre­ate this style, tie medium-length hair in a loose, un­done chignon. For long locks with a barely there wave, main­tain the look by twirling sec­tions of hair and let it set with a lit­tle heat.”
