Who Need’s a Hero in Singapore, We Need a Hero
What is the one thing that men have over taken the women in the land of Raising Sun ?
Well if you have guessed no 2. Then you are spot on, in recent survey researcher have noted that male have been taking notice of how they look and buying more beauty products than women. In Singapore I think this has not caught on but is certainly booming and that is why “We need a Hero”. I meant that literally.
Recently an all male grooming store have popped up in the new to be place of Singapore which is non other than of Tiong Bahru, this place have been on the lips of many men and that would be the All men’s grooming called “We Need A Hero”
I was curious of this place as I heard about people sipping whiskey (serious, see the below pic) while having wet shaves, haircut or even waxing
Well out the blues I decided to visit this place on a Saturday sometime last two weeks ago, and I have to say this place is packed and people with appointment are only being entertained, if you are walking in hoping to get a shave or haircut let alone waxing, I doubt you will have a chance getting served cause I peeked into the wait list and there is no available slot into the night.
This place is filled with energy, energy of satisfied customer to the receptionist greeting people coming in, phone ringing none stop and the chatter from the barber and barbress, even with my appointment I was made to wait cause the attention given to each customer, took this opportunity to interview one of the customers that have just finished with his hair cut and shaving
After that the receptionist took our order for drinks, plenty of selection of drinks available, dont forget to be asking for whiskey, wish I could taste some but I was driving so I requested for a lemon ginger mint to calm me self.
took time to check out the place as well
I booked Janice K the Chief Barberess and wish me luck on my transformation, here is my before and selfie with the beautiful and talented Janice Kok who have no less than 15 years of cutting and snipping on her resume
She took her time understanding my daily habits of grooming and knowing me, I am horrible with styling and yet I want to look good (who doesn’t) we agreed on cutting a short but slick back kinda look as it’s one of the most current stuff going on.
but before cutting, you go through the procedure of washing your scalp, this is carefully with a lovely scented towel to cover your eyes and relaxes you. ( darn I can swear you hear me snore through that pic)
Half way cutting .. half way sculpting
More Blowing, More styling, yumz yumz.. she put on some sea salt on my hair, I asked her can I lick my own hair in need of salt ?
She used this fiber product on my hair which I can’t refuse so I got myself one to style. Mesh Styling by Label.M from London,
