My Top 5 Beauty Hacks

We jetted across the world to seek the best beauty parlors which we deemed supreme over the rest. Let's find out which big beauty names made it to our list! We only have one body, so why not give it the best? Here are our top 5 beauty hacks.


"Few brands take a manicure to the next level like Cowshed," says Harper's Bazaar, which named the Spa as one of the best in London. After a long day of work, imagine watching your favourite show on a personal TV with a selection of baked goods within arm's reach – all while receiving a manicure and massage. Cowshed offers this and much more. Manicure & Pedicure prices go up to £65, with Facials costing between £60 and £110. Several Cowshed branches can be found across London, from Oxford Street to Primrose Hill.


If you are looking for one of the best aesthetic clinics in Singapore or possible Asia, then look no further than The Sloane Clinic. Having been around since 2013, it is one of Asia’s first fully comprehensive aesthetic and cosmetic surgery institutions that marries plastic surgery as well as non-invasive aesthetic dermatology (not forgetting its full suite of spa services that offers a resplendent selection of medical facials that are simply out-of-this-world). Spearheaded by Dr Low Chai Ling, one of Singapore’s celebrity aesthetic doctors who have taken care of many famous faces over the years as well as her huge team of leading aesthetic doctors and plastic surgeons, what stands out about this place is how you can get an expert in every single area to cater to your needs. Need one of the best robotic hair transplant doctor, look for Dr Chua Han Boon. Want one of the most natural-looking threadlifts in town? Dr Kenneth Lee is your man. Want an aesthetic doctor who specializes in eye, then ask for Dr Michelle Lim who double specializes in both aesthetics and eye! We had our hearts set on a dozen or so treatments (dream sculpture, filers, silhouette soft threadlift, ultherapy) but in the end settled on their Revage 670 Hair Restore, an FDA approved hair restoring light therapy rejuvenates scalp health!

Years of hair-rebonding has left our tresses thin and limp. Thankfully, Revage hair laser has the ability to thicken weakened hair follicles and stop hair loss in its tracks! Unlike most hair salon treatments, the focus of Revage is on the scalp, the root cause of hair loss not the shaft. We were advised that a series of sessions of Revage as part of their Hair Maximizer Program is what most of their clientele go for. We left happy and satisfied with the top class service we received and their signature in-clinic Hair Recovery Serum safely tucked under our arms.

 #3 BEST HAIR CUT (New York City)  - Savannah Bentz

When we announced that our favorite styling gadget is a flatiron, Bentz produced her tool of choice: scissors. She got to work shearing off two inches of dead weight. After a thorough shampoo, she blew it dry and proceeded to cut, adding welcome volume to our fine, shoulder-length strands by crafting delicate layers and eye-grazing bangs. From now on, the only weapon we'll rely on for gorgeous hair is Bentz. Women's haircut starts from USD$95 - $175.

Kim Robinson

Founded by Kim Robinson, Asia’s most celebrated and respected hair maestro, the Kimrobinson salons is a cut above the rest in Asian beauty parlors. Kim has a flair for hair colours, especially working his magic with Asian hair. He was the first to introduce sophisticated hair colours techniques to Hong Kong in the mid 1970s.

Kim personally hand-picked his talented team, products and services to ensure that all clients leave his salon with the first-rated hair treatments, products, and services. With A-listed clients such as the late Princess Diana, Kate Moss, Gong Li, and Michelle Yeoh, Kimrobinson is more than qualified to inspire not just every Hong Kong woman, but all women in the world.


Catwalkers none other than Karlie Kloss and Candice Swanepoel hit this airy, Diptyque-scented space that was once Terry Richardson’s studio. Trainer Justin Gelband’s Sculpt class (USD$40) is all about the “slow burn”: no more than 15 reps per exercise (incorporating yoga, cardio, and light weights) and never too fast. Famous faces may pop up at SoulCycle and Gotham Gym, too, but it’s the results-driven low impact (read: no sweaty hair) of these hour-long sessions that ups the model-to-civilian ratio.
