Not many hairstylists can say that they've styled hair for celebrities the likes of Lady Gaga, Paris Hilton, Julie Tan and many other international designers or have works everywhere in magazines from Her World to Female and Muse. That's why we're super hyped to speak to Issac, a top stylist with more than 30 years of experience at Singapore's most elite salons.
We couldn't see his smile but with eyes crinkling from above his mask, whatever apprehension we had that Issac would be a proud diva evaporated. It may be our first time meeting Issac but it certainly didn't feel so as we connected on a variety of topics, not just about hair but outside of hair as we ventured into topics about food and life. Even so, Issac doesn't forget to check with us on our preferred styles before embarking on the haircut.
As charming as Issac is, we're here for his signature haircut; this is after all a stylist who was invited as a Judge for the Golden Scissors Award in Singapore and had been to Toni & Guy London and even to Hong Kong for training. And boy, do we love the cut! Instead of focusing on the latest trendy hairstyle, Issac took the effort to layer our hair in such a way that it gives us more volume at the roots and conceals areas where our hair may not be as voluminous. The end result was soft, classy and feminine, something we absolutely love! For best results though, Issac recommended us to come back 2 more times for the perfect sculpted cut. His awesome haircut (along with Cinderella Treatments) have unsurprisingly won him fans among lawyers, bankers and even Royalty from around the region who love how his haircutting skill is able to tame even the most unruly of tresses.
For this level of skill and service, we find the price he charges here a steal (particularly with first-timer discounts) so if you're looking for someone with solid skill, Issac should definitely be on the top of your consideration list!
