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

HIGH­LIGHTS

Only 24 but with eight years of ex­pe­ri­ence un­der his belt, this young man cer­tainly knows his craft. Based in Bangsar, John Lloyd has a great way with both Asian and Cau­casian hair. He is val­ued for his hon­esty and abil­ity to adapt to each client’s dis­parate needs. Lloyd in­fuses each ap­point­ment with his trade­mark moder­nity to edge up ev­ery­thing from ombres and bal­ayages, to short crops, soft lay­ers, and faded bar­ber cuts.

SA­LON SPEAK

Es­tab­lished in 2001, Ish Sa­lon is al­ways buzzing with ex­pa­tri­ates who go there for the im­pec­ca­ble ser­vice and ex­per­tise in Cau­casian hair. As word spread, rec­om­men­da­tions earned it a steady stream of lo­cal clien­tele as well. Re­cently re­fur­bished, the sa­lon’s brown walls with beau­ti­ful golden framed mir­rors add a touch of so­phis­ti­ca­tion.

NEED TO KNOW

Un­der the tute­lage of Toni & Guy’s prodi­gies Michael Mar­riner and Ken Tan, Lloyd learns from not one, but two great men­tors and con­tin­ues to work closely with them at Ish Sa­lon. That’s more than 40 years of ex­pe­ri­ence com­bined. Cur­rently on Lloyd’s style moodboard: “Mod­els Jimmy Q and Ricki Hall.”
