With Hong Kong beauty salons, gyms and bars closed, these local businesses are making sure you don’t need to miss out on perfect hair, working out, enjoying cocktails and eating at home in style.
Little Black Book Styling
Beverley Cappleman of Little Black Book Styling is the woman to call for on location hair. With her signature approach to the whole image: hair, beauty and fashion, the in-demand, London trained stylist, sees only private clients, mostly women looking for the uncomplicated style Cappleman honed after having her own salon and collaborating with international brands, designers and photographers.
The concept has been a hit with style-savvy Hong Kongers, craving an alternative to the mega-salon model (and their eye-watering prices). She has become the epitome of the effortlessly tousled aesthetic she specialises in—the kind of hair that thrives on individuality and approachability, making her a favourite with high profile women including Arianna Huffington and Vera Wang. Consider it a kind of beauty escapism well worth the price of admission.
