In our Health and Beauty department we intend to find the most accurate information on maintaining a healthy life, both externally and internally. Our first expert in this area is our haircare expert Jacob.
Jacob is a hairdresser who has passion for his work. In fact, I see him more as an artist than a hairdresser. His passion for his art has taken him to superstardom in Japan where he has performed many hair demonstrations in front of large crowds of more than 3,000 people at a time.
He has won multiple awards there and with one particular award he also received a very special gift, a unique pair of double-scissors that I have seen him demonstrate his extraordinary skills with. He is like a real-life Edward Scissor-hands.
Jacob, originally from South Korea initially trained in his home country then went on to improve his skills and knowledge in the UK and in Japan. He also had a very successful business of his own, employing 15 staff members back in his homeland.
Jacob explained that when a person asked for his opinion on a style he would first listen to the client to ascertain what they really want, he assesses their face shape, skin and skin colour; then he takes into consideration other aspects such as age, character and anything else that he may feels are useful in making valid suggestions.
During our interview I saw that hairdressing was more than a job to Jacob and that he had a genuine concern for the needs of his clientele. With his skills and knowledge Jacob has trained many hairdressers where he had once been a trainee himself. He feels confident in his ability to train others in the art of hairdressing and aims to one day set up his own hairdressing institute here in Australia.
Right now, we are lucky to have Jacob available to us on our blog where we can benefit from his incredible expertise.
