Jerry Tan

Co-Founder & Creative Director

Jerry, with over 30 years of experience under his belt started his career at the tender age of 17. What started as a love of arts, music and fashion saw him and his group of friends experimenting and cutting each other’s hair. Then a stint as a model for a hair-show set the path into hairdressing as they would often hang out in the salon, eventually learning the ropes of the trade.

After 7 years working in a salon, Jerry yearned to learn more and a chance encounter with Kim Robinson led him to travel to Hongkong where he trained and worked alongside some of the international stylists/colourists. When “le salon orient” opened in Singapore, Jerry was among the first batch of hairdressers to helm the salon for the next 7 years going on to cut/style many local artists such as Chuando,Henry Golding,Dick Lee, Jacintha Abishinagen, Several Mediacorp actors/actresses ,F1 driver Max Verstappen,bruneian royalty,(as well as international artists such as Grasshoppers, Simon Yam, Ekin Cheng, Elva Hsiao, Anita Yuen and Lea Salonga.)

Jerry enjoys “Dry cutting” hair as he says it allows him to observe and understand how each individual client’s hair ‘fall’. His other favourite is cutting with texturising scissors which results in softer outline with lots of movement. This technique is especially appropriate for clients with thick or naturally wavy hair…
