DANIEL YAP // CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Less is always more. Daniel Yap’s ability to create strong and stunning hair architecture lies in his minimalist approach and eye for detail. This philosophy and discipline is the foundation of Tao of Hair; the salon Daniel conceived and opened in 2012. Since it’s humble beginnings in a small arcade shop, Tao has gained a reputation as one of Perth’s go-to salons, renowned for equally elegant and edgy styles. It hasn’t taken long for Tao to expand, taking residence amongst the premier King St shopping precinct in September 2016. Built on the foundation of an incredible team who understand the importance of consistently evolving their art and what can be created with merciless dedication, Team Tao is Daniel’s proudest achievement.
Daniel is a force within the industry; a strong performer in editorial, competition and show work. Though his strengths are endless, his passion lies in transforming the look and lives of his salon clients through his artistry.
Educated by hair stylist pioneers Sassoon, Toni & Guy and Pivot Point and an educator himself, Daniel also holds a position as one of the Creative Artistic Ambassadors ANZI for Keune Haircosmetics.
