Gary Lee

With more than three decades of Hairstyling experience under his belt, not only has Gary Lee established himself as one of the top 50 stylist in Singapore by Her World Magazine (2007), he is also a renowned Matrix Artistic Educator and Creative director for the Matrix brand of products.

As part of the Matrix Team, Gary mentors budding young talents in his role as an Ambassador for Destination Fame 2012, a platform that allows talents to create a new look that sets the trend for the year forward using Matrix hair colour and styling products.

Adding to this list is his appointment as Artistic Director of Mucota Singapore. The launch of Mucota’s revolutionary product Dyna showed Gary’s expertise when he demonstrated how by using Dyna, straightening can be achieved without the use of straightening irons.

As a judge in various hair colour competitions, Gary’s opinions are often sought after and quoted such as in Singapore’s first and only publication specializing in hair fashion, H4ufme. Indeed a visionary artist who takes great pride in every creation, Gary hones his craft with heart.

From humble beginnings, Gary started this journey in 1979. Learning from the prestigious Vidal Sassoon educator Michael Choi, Gary picked up priceless skills that perfected the craft he has today. A globetrotter, he has seen the cross-cultural exchange of ideas the world has to offer and incorporated these rich influences into his style. A master in the area of chemical techniques, Gary is indeed the go-to guy for services such as perming, straightening and colouring.

A firm believer that one should always give their best to the needs of clients, Gary attributes the success he has today to the clients who have become a form of “live” advertisement for his services. It is through this snowball effect based on client recommendations that has garnered Gary the recognition of a true maestro.

From the glitz and glamour as a guest judge for countless hair shows to conducting seminars and workshops which constantly raises the bar in the industry , Gary has been there and done that. Despite his vast wealth of experience, Gary doesn’t believe one should ever stop learning and this is reflected in his own drive to constantly advance his skills. In his own words “This industry is all about excellence thus there will never be an end to this journey of learning and self-improvement”.
