    Brows slightly creased and with steady unwavering hands, he snips away at her hair, half a centimetre at a time. His look of concentration, like that of an artist working with intent, is in direct contrast to the playful smile Jin Leng displays, obviously enjoying the haircut she is receiving. 40-year-old Soh Whee Lian is a wheelchair user who is giving back to society with his hairstyling skills.
