BAZAAR Hair Awards 2019: Creative Director Of The Year

Creative Director of the Year

Kevin Woo, creative director and founder of Centro W Salon


Quiet and unassuming, Kevin Woo creates magnificent work with great focus, putting his clients’ needs above everything else. As grand winner of L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2006 and three other subsidiary awards, the maestro has been a L’Oréal Professionnel artistic ambassador for 12 years now. An artist with an intrinsic eye for details, Kevin sees beauty in the simplest things. “Just take a look at your social media feed. Beauty is not limited to a face or a style, but in almost everything we do.”


With a mane obsession that began at a young age, Kevin has since travelled the globe to high-profile hair shows, seminars, training sessions, and even founded the luxe Centro W Salon. Here, his voracious appetite for growth has encouraged his generosity of knowledge and skill to the hairstylists under his wing. When it comes to his approach in challenging his creative boundaries, Kevin says,  “Inspiration is everywhere, you never stop learning.”


Renowned for his clean lines and visionary cuts, Kevin’s ultimate goal is and always has been to assist in letting real inner beauty shine through. “What we provide is more than a service. We provide life-changing experiences,” says Kevin. “Like an haute couturier, every haircut, every colour is tailored to fit the client and enhance the beauty that is already inborn.” And that he does indeed, with verve and panache. Cool and collected, he is able to bring out the best of dull and limp hair with a skilful trim and quick colour refresh. Absolute perfection.
