When we first met Leslie, we were charmed at the suave mature energy that he possesses. Be it the classy way he dresses or his nice medium length hair, there is just that perfect balance of polish and artsy that we love so much!  

Previously the artistic director of Mosche Hair Salon, Leslie have been styling the hair of pageant queens, brides, and movie stars, with notable celebrity customers such as Hossan Leong, Pierre Png (You know, the heartthrob in Crazy Rich Asians!). He has also been involved in the World Tour Hair Show, Fort Canning Fashion Show, and was even the Artistic Director in ICD Singapore 2011. Yet with all of these accolades in his portfolio, there is no snobbishness in Leslie. 

Watching him work on hair is akin to watching a sculptor turning a plain slab of marble into a majestic sculpture, each snip from his scissors brings the wearer closer to looking more like a masterpiece. You won't know what you get in the end, with his versatility in skill... all you know is that you'll definitely love it! All this is only possible because of Leslie's perfectionist attitude. He constantly renews himself, with training from Vidal Sassoon London to Toni & Guy keeping his skills as sharp as ever. Leslie is also a certified trichologist from the International Association of Trichologists, and have recently gone through a course at Sinclair Dermatology, Melborne's premier skin clinic. This means a beautiful head of hair with minimum damage. You can also seek out expert advice from him on how to properly take care of your hair at home!

At $150 for haircut, Leslie's charges the highest in Hair Illustrated. But as the saying goes, you get what you paid for. With his experience and merticulous nature, he is able to create natural soft layers and a gorgeous silhouette that will get strangers asking where you get your haircut from! In fact, the layers are shaped so well that it is common to have its form kept for 6 to 8 months! Comparing to a cheaper cut that are needs regular visits to maintain, we consider having a haircut by him a long-term investment.

Overall, a daring stylist who wants nothing but perfection with every cut!
