She has also completed Kevin. Murphy Color Lab, Wella Creative Colour and Vidal Sassoon ABC Cut.

Our incredibly lovely Senior Stylist Lee has been practising hair styling across the world for over 17 years - starting out at Tygerberg College in Cape Town, South Africa back in 2001. She went on to work at Style Salon in Wellington, South Africa, The Hair Gallery in Tunbridge Wells, UK, and The Haircorridor in Dubai. She has trained with Schwarzkopf, Goldwell, Wella and Kevin Murphy - and is an absolute natural with the scissors (not to mention a total sweetheart).
ZZ started his career as a serious businessman (ooerr!), but fell in love with hair styling after trying out a haircutting class on the side. He loved making someone feel and look good - plus it came easily to him - so he decided to continue doing so! Luckily for us, because he really light up the salon! After taking up an apprenticeship with Jessi, ZZ has had intense colour training with both Jessi and Kevin Murphy, smashing a number of their professional classes and attending a 3 month Vidal Sassoon cutting course in Santa Monica, California. He's become a real pro with Brazilian Blow Outs too! Looking for Balayage, a Vidal Sassoon cut or a color correction? He's your man!
Joanne, our brilliant stylist from Singapore, has always been obsessed with hair and make up, and began taking courses in 2012. After graduating from Temesek Polytechnic, she decided, 'nope, not an office job for me!' and looked for a professional, friendly salon that would equip her with reputable, global qualifications. She stumbled upon The Parlour and has been with us since 2015. She is a pro at colour correction, special occasion styling and swanky haircutting. Joanne is also trained to apply make up, and would love to chat to you about make up for events, shoots, tutorials or just because! Oh and did we mention she's hilarious? Because she is. Make appointment already lah.
