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.”

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.
JEANETTE KONG, 25, SALES AND MARKETING EXECUTIVE After sporting long hair for years, Jeanette wanted a different look for her wedding this October. 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!”
