In June 2014, Ben posted a picture of his then “saloon”, a parking spot in his house where clients would have their hair styled under the hot sun, shaded only by a thin roof. However, his great reputation for great service and talent was already well known, and would-be clients were more than willing to endure the minor inconvenience, just to have their hair styled by the best they know. Things were not as bad however, Ben had actually opened an actual Saloon back in 2010. Called ‘The Hair Factory’, this is where Ben built his reputation as a master stylist, and garnered his loyal fans who would stay with him until today. Although considered a success, in 2014 they decided to close The Hair Factory down due to creative differences – only then Ben had to resort to the parking lot.

Within a few months people started calling, and Ben was featured in Citta Bella Magazine – a popular lifestyle magazine in Malaysia. Soon after he got an even bigger surprise, as one of Malaysia’s biggest bands, Bunkface called him up and asked him to be their official hairstylist.
It was then, that Ben finally got himself into the limelight, where he started joining a lot of hair shows and events. He was invited by MHA to be a hairstylist for Malaysia’s first web entertainment award show – WebTVAsia Awards this year (2015), and Groomify to perform at the IHA Charity Hair Show, where he is one of the 3 hairstylists from Klang. From a hairstylist who cuts his hair in a parking lot merely a year ago, today Ben has become one of Klang’s highly sought-after stylists, managing over 200 clients every month. Despite having the honour of styling the hairs of Malaysia’s biggest names, he remained humble and ever working hard to improve, pushing himself to be an even better stylist.
