Sam Lim, Creative Director

I
‘ve had 20 years of experience in the Hair Dressing Industry and am fortunate enough to have my own work space as well as hair salon; Cross Hair Salon, which have been around since 1994. I enjoy conceptualising new hairstyles for my clients in my workspace. Besides that, I occasionally go abroad to study new ways that can enhance my salon’s professionalism or that can bring my hair-stylists’ creativeness to a new level. I also experiment with new areas and ways so as to make sure that my customers enjoy the trendiest hairstyles. Throughout the years, I have also taken part in many contests and have won on numerous times as well. These include being the winner for the men and women’s ‘Fashion Award’ as well as the ‘Fantasy Hairstyle Award”. I am also the proud winner of the 1999 L’Oreal Colour Trophy’s hair-dyeing segment and women’s Fashion hair-cut segment. Besides that, I have also won the Grand Winner Sakura Award of the International Tokyo Competition, held in Japan in 2002, and am the first runner-up for the ‘Fantasy Hair Style’ segment of the Pantene Hair Asia-Pacific in 2003. Recently, I have also won quite a few awards in the Organisation Mondiale Coiffure in Beijing in 2007 and have participated in the L’Oreal Redken Hair Show. In order to receive affirmation and recognition in the hair-styling industry, I have worked hard all these years. No doubt, the experience had led to me being able to constantly heighten my creative skills.

“I hope to be able to constantly come up with new concepts and hairstyles for my clients and to start off; I experiment with new areas and ways so as to make sure that my customers enjoy the trendiest hairstyles. I also occasionally go abroad to study new ways that can enhance my salon’s professionalism or that can bring my hair-stylists’ creativeness to a new level. I hope that through constantly working hard on my skills, I am able to create my own franchise.”

O
ne of the Creative Directors at Cross Hair Salon – I have been in this industry for 18 years, graduating from the famous Vidal Sassoon and the ITE hair-dressing course as well as receiving the award for “Best Make-up” after receiving training in cosmetics at “Top to toe”. I have also taken part in the prestigious L’Oreal Colour Trophy in 2000 and won the outstanding award. Besides that, I had also gone abroad and learned more about hairdressing in countries such as France, Germany, Spain, Hong Kong and Thailand. My niche lies in cutting, Perm and hair dyeing. That said, I like to give my customers advice on scalp care and basic knowledge about hair, and hope to be able to come up with new hairstyles that each customer can identify with as their own.
