Singapore's Top IT Girls Share Tips to Picture Perfect Tresses!

Ever wondered what's the secret to their picture perfect tresses? We speak to some of the top IT girls and tastemakers in Singapore to sneak you these tips!

Rachel Lim (@ms_rach)

Rachel is no stranger to the Singapore fashion scene as co-founder of Love, Bonito. Her signature hairstyle consists of a classic, polished lux looking lob (managed by director @garychew) curled in with every strand in place.

What's her must do styling regime?

"I always make sure I apply hair serum before blowing my hair so that it looks healthier and shines through."

Andrea Chong (@dreachong)

With a huge following of 257,000 - our fashion darling is known for her perfectly tousled waves and trendy experimental colours crafted by director @johnthamyuehan.

On days when the weather calls for a top knot, here's how she ace it:

"Curl your hair first and spray a little but of hair spray before tying it into a bun, so your bun stays in place and with no loose hair sticking out!"

Nurul Aini (@aanurul)

Our Suria sweetheart and entrepreneur with two adorable children wears many hats while looking so chic all the time. Her IG feed is filled with food, fashion and lots of pretty, colorful selfies of her wearing the latest hair trends designed by director @garychew.

How does she maintain her ever-changing hair colours?

"Condition your hair first. We always think that we need to shampoo and then condition hair. But it actually works better when you condition hair first and then shampoo."

We can't agree more! Sulphates in shampoo tend to strip off hair color, leaving it looking dull and tangled. Prep your hair by applying conditioner at the hair ends before shampoo-ing to reduce the loss of color and proteins with each hair wash!

Velda Tan (@belluspuera)

Co-founder of Collate The Label and local fashion icon Velda Tan is known for her sophisticated sense of style. Take a look at her curated feed of OOTD posts and you'll definitely notice her Va-Va-Voom hair!

How does she maintain it?

"On days that I'm lazy to wash my hair, I maintain it with dry shampoo."

Dry shampoo works best for next day hair to eliminate excess oil while giving texture and body to your locks. One thing to note - do check in for deep cleansing scalp treatments monthly to remove build up and declog follicles which cannot be clarified by using shampoo alone. Clogged pores are one of the main causes of hair loss and hair thinning. Velda also gets her crowning glory regularly coloured and shaped by director @garychew.
