I arrived rather nervously, at a highway I’ve never taken to Bangsar before. Slowly but surely my car halted to a stop at a traffic light and I immediately spotted BSC, Bangsar Shopping Complex on my far left.
Courtesy of Xavier Mah, the PR & Communications Manager of the premier and leading hairstyling center and academy, A Cut Above, I was extended an invitation to their grand opening.
Prepare for some wicked and bewildering looks of the century! 🙂
The front entrance
Right before the press conference, I checked out the entire interior of this new outlet. And I love it! Such a modern feel yet never leaving the key elements of a hair salon should resemble. Here’s only one part of it though, the hairwash section :
From what I noticed, they use leading brands such as Kerastase
and Loreal while servicing their clients

I hung out for a while walking around and chatting with some familiar faces (in the media line, you’re bound to keep meeting the same people over and over again!) when I bumped into Winnie Loo. Without her, A Cut Above wouldn’t have been proudly standing here till today.
She’s the queen bee yo
Founder and MD of A Cut Above!
The press conference soon began and we were ushered to another room to have a seat. This was where she and Xavier shared the lowdown on the opening of this spanking new outlet. When I threw the question, I asked if she was still very much involved in the haircutting/hairstyling part where she 1st begun, despite climbing so high in this industry and already being on the manegerial level.
She mentioned that she was “still very hands on and even
personally cuts the hair of some of her clients upon request.”
Moments later before the event officially begun, I spotted even more familiar faces and as usual, we camwhored over some drinks, a dinner buffet and yes.. Haagen Daaz ice-cream!
To grace this event, over 40 celebrities were seen mingling about as well. A notable pair being the one directly above. Anita Sarawak, the diva and her Caucasian husband, now acknowledged as Mahathir. I like how they match perfectly well at every event, from the hair colour (were both blonde previously!) to the apparel they have on their backs.
Both, the emcees Baki and Aishah Sinclair
did a swell job in hyping up the crowd!
As soulful as ever
Singing ‘One Night Only’ was Nikki, a former Malaysian Idol finalist. I could hardly recognize her as the last time I watched it was when I was still in high school. My my, look how much she progressed in terms of vocals and stage presense! Woots
