He currently owns SalonPlus, the largest hair salon at Far East Plaza – which we know is a haven for beauty services.

Embrace the Power of a “CNY-Worthy” Cut
Forget basic trims – Dave emphasises the transformative power of a bold, statement cut that elevates your entire look.
“A fresh, confident cut sets the tone for your entire outfit and instantly adds polish,” advises Dave.
SalonPlus boasts a team of versatile hairstylists who can do it all: from trendy Korean wolf cuts to chic Japanese layers, or even a dash of creative flair tailored just for you. No matter your hair type or desired vibe, they’ll craft a cut that complements your features and shines under the CNY spotlight.
Why it’s CNY-perfect: No more fiddling with limp strands or worrying about flyaways – your new cut will do the talking (and hair-flipping) for you.
Let Your Colour Do the Talking
Dave swears by the magic of colour to truly turn heads during CNY visits.
“A touch of colour instantly makes you stand out and adds a festive touch to any outfit,” says Dave, “And you can go for an office-appropriate brown shade without anyone thinking it’s boring, simply by using the right techniques and colour combination!”
Dave says that SalonPlus offers a stunning array of shades and techniques, from subtle balayage to vibrant highlights, rich coppers, and even playful pops of colour. Their expert colorists will work their magic to find the perfect hue that complements your skin tone and personality, adding depth and dimension to your hair.
What’s more, SalonPlus uses products from Oro Therapy, which is an ammonia-free colouring range that doesn’t just offer brilliant colours but also protects hair instead of damaging it!
Why it’s CNY-perfect: Let’s face it – red ang pow popping against vibrant hair? Picture-perfect CNY vibes guaranteed!
Treat Your Hair Like Royalty (Because It Is!)
All that CNY feasting and fun can take a toll on your locks. So, before you hit the visiting circuit, Dave recommends pampering your hair with a luxurious salon treatment.
“Healthy hair is beautiful hair, and that’s like the ultimate accessory,” Dave muses.
For your hair treatment needs, SalonPlus offers a menu of deep-conditioning, nourishing treatments that will restore moisture, repair split ends, and leave your hair silky smooth and ready to shine.
Using the highly superior Aqua Intensive technology from Shiseido Professional, SalonPlus’s treatment is ideal for those with damaged hair, even those who go for repeated hair colouring and perm services.
Why it’s CNY-perfect: A treatment will ensure your hair looks and feels its absolute best, giving you the confidence to own every room you walk into. Even that well-meaning aunt who’s been pestering you to get married/lose weight/have a baby won’t be able to resist commenting on your beautiful tresses first – we’re sure!
