Big congratulations to The Malaysian Hairdressing Association (MHA) for celebrated its 12th year anniversary with the biggest hair show and fashiontainment extravaganza in Malaysia, titled “It’s TIME” on 21 March 2017 at HGH Convention Centre, Sentul.
We were honored to be one of the 800 guests that have attended the hair show and fashiontainment extravaganza event. We have seen the industry leaders and talented hair stylists at the event. The show aimed to create a platform for local hairdressers to showcase their work to larger audience.
The gala showcased about 60 dramatic hair creations on the runway with the theme of 1920s/30s and Futuristic Chic which consists of three categories; Culture Tribes, Future Avant Garde, as well as Shapes and Sculptures.
The hairstyles were presented by over 25 local hairdressers; including James Wong from A Cut Above, Avier Ng from Tenze Studio, Alice Boon from a+b Hair Studio, Elmer Tay from La'Mode, Juno Loo from Juno’s Perfection Studio, Nick Koh from Signature Hair Salon, and many others. Additionally, the show featured Australian famed hairdresser, Atilio Dusa who highlighted the latest trend in hairdressing with the support from Evo Malaysia.
