Remember the “Most Accomplished Hairdresser (and Photoshop Expert) in Singapore”, Jonal Chong?

He inspired a whole series of photoshopped meme pictures of him being “seen” with various celebrities.

It all started with one photoshopped picture of him with international star, Nicole Kidman, and his boastful claim to be Nicole’s exclusive stylist, among other international celebrities:

Jonal Chong and Nicole Kidman?

After he was exposed with being a fraud, his salon on Orchard Central closed down shortly.

It has been more than a year since.

Jonal Chong is now back with his newest salon to be launched in 2014 – Forever JC Yours Hair Couture:

Jonal Chong is back!

Jonal Chong is back!

To be honest, I think everybody should be given a second chance.

Jonal wrote a long Chinese poem on his Facebook page on his passion for hairdressing:

我在美髮界半個人生
十五歲那時候的我
便一刀一刀開始學習剪頭髮
我一條一條的剪
我一日一日的進修
當時完全不知道
原來我的人生註定就是這樣
我的遊樂場所就是我的髮廊
我的玩具就是我那把小小的剪刀
我的日子就是那一絲絲的頭髮和我的那把小小的剪刀
風風雨雨
經過的歲月
經過的風浪
讓我覺得生活上的這把小小的剪刀
真的給我很多支持
我有時心裡不敢抱怨
因為我深愛著
我那一把小小的剪刀
我在美髮界搖搖晃晃我的人生
不管任何人的中傷
我還是堅持的堅強
我在髮廊中成長
我在髮廊中告別我的爸媽
我在美髮界戀愛
我在美髮界失去我的青春
今天的我
還是跟十五歲一樣
給喜歡我的人服務
我就是那把我一生給了美髮界的 sc chong

Looking through his Facebook pictures, he do seems to have some real pictures styling local and regional celebrities. I wish him all the best in his new business venture and I hope he would not resort to lying about his credential any more.
