His Salon Experience

Nicky began hairdressing a little over 20 years ago, after a short stint at his home-town hairdressing salon convinced him that this was the career for him.

Learning the Craft

A huge fan of the thriving London fashion scene, Nicky’s not just trained there once or twice, but an amazing four times! "There’s just so much unbelievable energy coming out of London – the creative vibes are just amazing!" He further upgraded himself in various hair techniques and obtained certifications and diplomas from Vidal Sassoon Academy and Toni & Guy, in London.


In the course of his career in Singapore, he contributed much of his personal time and work towards company sponsored hairstyling events and charities. His participation notably includes his selection as one of the leading hairstylists for the Miss Singapore Universe and Miss World Contest held in 2000 at Suntec City, in Singapore's National Day Parade in 2001, Media Corp Charity Shows, MTV Asia Awards, Thomson Medical Charity, and many others.

Fashion Trends versus Individual Style

For all his artistic inclinations, Nicky isn’t the type of stylist to impose fantastical new styles onto his clients in the name of ‘fashion’. "When it comes to one’s hairstyle, I believe that more important that fashion is personal style. I would never give a conservative customer a outrageous "do" - it just wouldn’t work!"

Celebrity Connections

In addition to being part of the Salvatore Ferragamo show, Nicky also styled the very fashionable Vivien Tan during the Radio Music Awards.

Predictions for the Millennium

The ‘80s revival is going to last a long way for sure!
