Award-winning hairstylist and colorist, Co-founder of Evolve Salon, Singapore
‘Live Simply•Love Generously•Learn Constantly ‘
2017 marks Dylan’s 3rd time participating in the Global Zoom event, which is hailed as “The Olympics of the hairdressing industry”. Now, the Global Gold Winner and two-time Color Zoom Challenge National Gold Winner is on a mission to help Singaporeans give their tresses a new lease of life for 2018!
Family generally plays a role in shaping one’s life. The same can be said for award-winning hairstylist, colorist and co-founder of Evolve Salon, Dylan Tung. Growing up observing his hairdresser aunt help people cut, color, perm and style hair sparked his interests in creative styling, which influenced his career choice.
In addition to analyzing how hairstyles are created at an early age, he enjoys drawing and painting – and at one point in his life – dreamed of becoming an artist!
Coming from a household of successful business people in the food and beverages sector, however, his parents were concerned about his lack of interest in the family’s dealings. It took his aunt a long time to persuade his parents that he should seek his heart’s desire and pursue a creative career – and that’s how Dylan became the highly successful hairstylist and colorist he is today.
Dylan’s forte lies in his ability to adapt designs and mix colors to produce bold cuts, beautiful tones and smooth textures that capture the myriad of colors on one head of hair. It is no wonder, then, that he has a string of awards under his belt, including the Singapore Diamond Scissors Award (2015) and Color Zoom National Gold Winner (2010 and 2011). He frequently gives talks and conducts masterclasses for Singapore-based hairstylists and colorists at the Goldwell Academy. A regular competitor, he often takes part in international hairstyling contests.
