Six women and their stylists on their hair choices.

MIO YUKARI, 26, RE­CEP­TION­IST Long, straight hair is not al­ways bor­ing. To make Mio’s hair more in­ter­est­ing, So Yusuke, salon man­ager of Pact+lim, gave her sub­tly cropped sides and choppy bangs. Mio says: “This is a low-main­te­nance hair­cut which makes it easy for me to ex­plore dif­fer­ent styling op­tions. I also like that it makes my face look sharper.”

CHRIS­TINE TOH, 25, BANKER When she started los­ing hair be­cause of stress and in­ad­e­quate sleep, Chris­tine thought that a pixie cut would help. Her hair­styl­ist Eu­nice Ng, creative stylist of Chap­ter 2, chose a more fem­i­nine style for her pe­tite fea­tures. “I’ll stick to this hairstyle for a while – it’s ef­fort­less and looks good even with­out styling,” says Chris­tine.

She opted for a con­cave bob on the ad­vice of her hair­styl­ist, Jimmy Yap, artis­tic man­ager of Ke­naris Salon. She ex­plains: “I chose this hairstyle be­cause it brings out my fea­tures and is very easy to main­tain – no more hid­ing be­hind long hair!”

“An asym­met­ri­cal long fringe frames her fea­tures and slims her face, and the cropped back pre­vents her ne hair from curl­ing out. To cre­ate a fuller look, she can ap­ply a rootlift­ing spray on towel-dried hair be­fore blow-dry­ing.”

– Jimmy Yap, artis­tic man­ager of Ke­naris Salon

“I opted for a side fringe to bal­ance the look of her high fore­head, and long side­burns to add length to her small face.”

– Eu­nice Ng, creative stylist of Chap­ter 2

“Shorter sides will lift your fea­tures – you can cre­ate more tex­ture by opt­ing for soft, big curls.” – So Yusuke, salon man­ager of
