As the leading name in hair and beauty management on both the local and international scene, Georgie has certainly established himself on the glamour scene in a global way.

Georgie left his home country of Hong Kong in the early 70s to pursue his training in hairdressing in London. Following several highly successful apprenticeships at Vidal Sassoon, Morris Master Class, Jingles and Alan International –all in London- Georgie made an incredible impact on the Singapore hairstyling circuit upon his arrival in 1978. Quick to appreciate his cosmopolitan flair was a well-heeled clientele consisting of the social set and well-traveled expatriates as well.
