Are you brunette or blonde? Do you have straight or frizzy hair? Hera Hair Beauty’s newest salon in Tanglin Mall (their other one is in Sentosa) has a fab team that works with Kevin Murphy and Kérastase products on everything from fighting frizz to creative colouring techniques like blonde highlights and balayage. We hear from three of its experienced hair experts.
#1 Nathan Gordon, Artistic Director
With more than 18 years of experience under his belt, Nathan earned himself the title of Redken’s Top Master Colourist and Stylist in New York and is best known for creating the perfect cut and colour for both women and men. Some of his celebrity clients include Sandra Bullock, Drew Barrymore, Eva Longoria and Amber Heard.
“A woman’s hair is her most important accessory! Your haircut and colour should be custom tailored to your face shape, skin tone, style, personality and daily maintenance needs. If you are spending more than 10 minutes doing your hair in the morning, you’re seeing the wrong hairstylist. I’d like to show you the way to amazing, healthy hairstyles that you can recreate at home with ease, in 10 minutes or less!”
#2 Rujean Botha, Master Stylist
During her close on 20 years of experience in hairstyling for fashion editorials, commercials and runway shows, South African Rujean has won more than 20 awards. An all-round hair stylist, she is known for her hair colouring techniques to create both natural and bold looks on blondes, brunettes and reds.
“In a humid climate like Singapore’s, the hair easily gets frizzy without a good balance of protein and moisture. I recommend our keratin treatment (priced from $335), an intensive, customised service that smoothens and reconstructs dry, damaged hair.”
#3 Rain Baxter, Colour Director & Stylist
Hailing from London, Rain has over 24 years of experience in the industry, which includes being involved in fashion shows like London Fashion Week. Having trained in Toni & Guy London, she specialises in highlights and colour transformations.
“I rarely colour without Olaplex (priced from $70). It changed the game for hairdressing and I no longer remember life in the salon before it. Olaplex protects the disulfide bonds of the hair when colouring and repairs them when it’s used alone as a treatment. It’s revolutionary and I can’t live without it!”
This beauty spot also offers nail services by experienced nail artists; pamper yourself with an organic spa manicure ($55), and top up with $30 for a nourishing hand mask for a well-deserved pampering treat!
