Q&A with FDP Hair Salon- Angeline
What can one expect when visiting FDP?
When coming to FDP, you can expect not just the service itself but also a whole new level of experience. We’ve always been driven to making the place very cozy. In fact, the place is actually designed by my brother.
Tell us one of FDP’s many strength
My style has always been very Hollywood driven and we were awarded one of the best Balayage Hair Coloring places in Singapore by Harpers Bazaar 2016. Very happy to be one of the pioneers of this new hair trend.
Main differences between Asian and Caucasian Hair?
One of the biggest differences would be the texture of the hair. Usually, when Caucasian are in Singapore, they experience and start to hate the humidity in the weather. Their hair gets very frizzy. Whereas Asians do not really face the same problem. However, when it comes to haircuts, Asians do not have facial features that are as strong as Caucasians, which makes the haircuts and styles very different.
3 Hair tips that you swear by?
- Never ever do any DIY (including box dye)- even if it looks easy.
- Don’t flood your bathroom with too many different types of hair products, always go to a professional to get it ex first.
- Never cheapen yourself on hair services- if it’s too cheap, it’s for a reason.
