Janice Kok, 36

The chief barber at We Need A Hero has been in the industry for 16 years. She was previously an art director at Toni & Guy, where she was in charge of training the brand's hairstylists.

In 2008, Ms Kok was named as one of Singapore's top eight hairstylists for men by Urban.

What is the one product you would not step out of the house without?

Drawing on wing-tipped eyeliner, as it helps to open up my eyes and adds character to my whole signature look.

I like Browhaus' new Precision Eyeliner ($17.90, from Browhaus and Spa Esprit outlets). It is long-lasting and offers good control for bold strokes.

Which is your favourite perfume?

I like scents that are fresh and not overpowering.

At the moment, my favourites are Bulgari Blue (from $85) and Bleu de Chanel EDT (from $140) for men.

What is the one grooming service you cannot do without?

My bangs are really short; they fall slightly just above my hair line.

I have a cowlick at the hairline so I shave it a little to make sure that the line looks even.

The end result? It makes my small and round face look a little longer.

I get my bangs trimmed by my friend Jo Koh at Toni & Guy. We've been cutting each other's hair for the last eight years.

Because my bangs are so short, I have to make sure my brows are well-groomed. I go to Browhaus at 100AM to get them threaded and tweezed once every three weeks.
