Glow grows

After The Strand sadly closed its doors permanently, Glow Spa & Salon opened its arms to many of the salon’s talented hair stylists and beauty technicians. These latest additions bring Glow’s formidable squad to over 30 stylists and technicians from all areas of hair and beauty! Between them, the team has centuries of experience with experts in the latest colour techniques and products, technical treatment applications, hair extensions, and even an afro specialist. The beauty team also welcomes two new team members who are experienced experts in many treatments including intimate hair reduction and removal for both men and women.

Ace the Face

Charlotte Tilbury, makeup artist to the stars, was all over the Met Gala in May. Known as the Queen of Glow, she’s launched a new range, aptly called Glowgasm. The collection includes two Glowgasm Face Palettes ($670), three Glowgasm Beauty Light Wands ($320), and the permanent return of Eyes to Mesmerise in two shades ($250). Charlotte says, “I wanted to create a beautifying glow that literally puts a crystallike light and energy onto the complexion.” We’re sold! For Hong Kong stockists, visit
