As part of our Hong Kong Humans series, Ruixue Zhang meets Yinfeng Liang – a face threading artisan in Tuen Mun. Before Liang married and moved to Hong Kong, she ran a barbershop in China.

But although there is still demand for her skills, and despite the profession being at risk of dying out, she thinks young people should look elsewhere for a career.

In collaboration with the University of Hong Kong’s Journalism and Media Studies Centre.
