With over 2.3 million Instagram followers and counting, Guy Tang is widely regarded as the original King of Balayage.
Back when the ‘paint-by-hand’ hair colouring technique was still unheard of to the rest of the world (including Hong Kong), Guy was already creating killer melts from his studio in LA—and broadcasting it to the world via YouTube and Instagram.
Some of his most famous videos feature YouTube celebrities Michelle Phan and Blogilates’ Cassey Ho (remember the rose gold look?), but today, Guy is focused on building his global empire with the launch of his new line of custom hair colour, #Mydentity.
His schedule currently takes him all over the world to meet his #HairBesties, a global community of Guy Tang fans and hair artists who are keen to learn from the best.
During his stop in Hong Kong, Guy shared with us the latest hair trends, hair protection tips and the future of ombré (in between bites of egg tarts and bouts of twerking):
