STAR STYLIST Cather­ine Chia, A Cut Above Sun­way Pyra­mid

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Hair Awards 2015 -

With over 20 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence, it’s safe to say Cather­ine Chia is a hair­dress­ing vet­eran. Eight years and count­ing at A Cut Above, she

con­tin­ues to pas­sion­ately hone her ra­zor-sharp skills. While her favourite tools lean to­wards tra­di­tion, Chia is al­ways well equipped

with the latest knowl­edge in fash­ion and trends. Hav­ing been in the hair­dress­ing in­dus­try since she fin­ished high school,

Chia’s com­mit­ment to the craft is noth­ing short of ad­mirable. Her hairstyling ad­vice is sagely, and tran­scends to other ar­eas of life: “Do not be stub­born, and be open to new things. Change is al­ways good.”

A Cut Above’s ded­i­ca­tion to ex­cel­lence stems from its founder Datin Win­nie Loo, who re­mains the only Malaysian ever to re­ceive

the pres­ti­gious World Master of the Craft ti­tle. Awarded by the Arts & Fash­ion Group of New York, it is a fit­ting recog­ni­tion of her

con­tri­bu­tion in im­prov­ing in­dus­try stan­dards.
