Du Ya Si's old girl friend that left him for England three year ago. Just when Ya Si was beginning to forget about her, she come back. Also a famous stylist, she wins this competition with a stole piece of work.
World-wide famous' hair salon Neo-Image has open and three popular hairstyle -- Ya Si, Er Qi, Fei Nan Du's exaggerated and beautiful hairstyle attracted huge crowds. Just at this time, an external official came to them for help. There was an event called "Chinese Hairstyle Competition" and they have found a part-time working young female hair-dresser to compete against the French stylist to help advertise the French Hair Products. As this competition will greatly affect the country's status, the three guys decided to help.
Ya Si and the other two hairstylists decided to replace the young hair-dressers to help to earn a reputation for the country. When the bright and attractive model with the beautiful hairstyle that Ya Si and the others designed walked out, she received lots of cheers and support due to her fantastic hairstyle. The hair-dressers they chased off-stage were Neo-Image's neighbour at the alley nearby, called "Zhong Nan Li Fa Ting" worker, Nuo Ruo Yi(Xiao Bei). Although Ya Si chased Xiao Bei off the stage, but seeing her snipe off the first bunch of hair, he realised that she had a lot of talent and secretly decided to win Xiao Bei over.
Neo-Image's grand opening to the next door family-run style Zhong Nan Li Fa Ting was a huge attack. Zhong Nan's boss was called Lao Bei, after leaving the army, he had set up this hair salon and now that the alley has opened such a new hair salon, their customers definitely decreased and even more importantly, his daughter Xiao Bei's heart has been attracted to Neo-Image after its grand and exciting opening.
Chou Mei has followed Ya Si to 18 different towns and has finally gotten the change to have him make her hairstyle. On Neo-Image's opening that night, Chou Mei stepped into the shop's "Magic Room" and didn't come out. Through the dark night's illuminated winder, Xiao Bei saw Fei Nan Du wave a knife and fresh blood splashed out; Neo-Image back door, Xiao Bei saw Er Ya handed over a huge cloth bag to two other person and Xiao Bei thought that Chou Mei must have met an accident and decided to inform the police. Ya Si and the others were brought to the police station and Xiao Bei opened a Zhong Nan press conference to explain the murder she witnessed. Soon, Chou Mei returned home and that ended the whole exciting drama, but when the truth was figured out, it was already passed the newspaper's news submission time.
The second day, “Suspicious Murder Case” made the headlines. Fei Nan Du hurriedly opened a press conference in front of the shop to clear the mess. The Head of Security came to the Zhong Nan salon and the press all pushed forward, asking about what happened. Ya Si and Xiao Bei betted on the next day’s news’ size and Ya Si unfortunately lost to Xiao Bei, so he not only had to accompany Chou Mei to shoot wedding photos, but also went to Zhong Nan’s top floor, otherwise known as the “Haunted House”, to sleep for a night. A drunken Ya Si mistook Xiao Bei to be Qing Kong and tenderly hugged her. Zhe Ming unfortunately ended up locking the doors without realizing that Ya Si and Xiao Bei was inside. Hence, Ya Si and Xiao Bei spent a night together.
Half a year ago, in an accident in England, Ya Si lost his mom and brother, but he didn’t dare to tell his grandmother that lived in the mountainside. Thus, he acted as his twin brother that died in the accident, Ya Jun to visit her. He happened to meet Xiao Bei who was doing voluntary work by cutting hair. Ya Si then had to continue to act.
Ya Si and Xiao Bei unknowingly walked to “Water Maze Chamber”, where there was a rumor that a pair of couple if they can walk through the chamber without deep thoughts about how to do it, are destined to be lovers. Years ago, Ya Si and Qing Kong didn’t manage to walk through but this time, Xiao Bei however, accidentally walked through, which made Ya Si very shock.
Ya Si and Chou Mei’s wedding photos were enlarged and put outside the shop which made Ya Si had ideas of revenge and when Xiao Bei’s helped Tong Tong was at Neo-Image, Ya Si hoped that she would come to work and hence Ya Si bet with Xiao Bei again that if Tong Tong came to Neo-Image, Xiao Bei must come too to be the wash hair person. Tong Tong’s betrayal caused Xiao Bei to lost the bet but when Xiao Bei thought of leaving her father, she felt very uncertain and met with an car accident when she was not paying attention. She felt a guy saving her at that time but she could only remember that he was wearing a basketball T-Shirt with the letters “23” on it.
On Xiao Bei’s first day at work, there was a fight between Emma and Mo Ke Feng over some advertisements project. Mo Ke Feng was at the top of her career when she fell in love with Fei Nan Du but flirty Fei Nan Du loves Emma and got caught by the media kissing her. It was only through Er Qi and Ya Si’s effort that Ke Feng was able to win back the advertisement project.
Er Qi’s god-father was one of Hong Kong’s gang’s big brother, Chen Ge. Er Qi’s father lost Er Qi to him in a bet and to Er Qi, Chen Ge was his forever master. As Chen Ge’s ninth wife Bai He likes Er Qi, it caused Chen Ge to have some misunderstandings and Er Qi had no choice but to escape Hong Kong. Chen Ge however, also sent his men to “invite” Er Qi back to Hong Kong. Er Qi met with them a couple of times and Xiao Bei always happened to be nearby too. This made Xiao Bei mistake Er Qi to be an undercover detective. Er Qi didn’t deny and Xiao Bei ended up falling in love with Er Qi because of his mysterious background.
Qing Kong silently came back to the country but didn’t went to see Ya Si as promised and observed him from the side instead. She noticed that Ya Si was really nice to Xiao Bei and was slightly disappointed. Neo-Image organized a yearly friendly competition, Ping Bi, for workers that was due to start. They can find their friends to be models. Qing Kong hid her status and went near Xiao Bei to become her good friend. Ya Si’s twin brother Ya Jun had past away but Ya Si kept acting as his brother to hide the fact from his grandmother. To make her happy, Xiao Bei agreed to be Ya Jun’s girlfriend for a day and it was on that day that Xiao Bei noticed many of Ya Si’s qualities and fell for Ya Si.
The Ping Bi finally started and the most likely to be promoted hairstylist Mango, chose to have Zhe Ming who had a huge fight with Xiao Bei. Xiao Bei tried to concentrate and was about to show off her skills when Qing Kong came to Neo-Image and told Xiao Bei that she was Ya Si’s girlfriend. When Xiao Bei knew that, she was hurt and she lost all her ideas and innovation. Thus, she lost the Ping Bi. Er Qi also realized then that Xiao Bei’s feelings for Ya Si was out of the ordinary.
Qing Kong’s appearance made Xiao Bei face opponents in both her career and love. Her love with Ya Si was filled with uncertainty. Neo-Image’s England sales manager Anna, was Ya Si’s father’s mistress. When Anna returned to the country, she favoured Fei Nan Du more and when it came to the running of Neo-Image, she and Ya Si were both determine to go towards a hairstylist path and fought against each other. Are Ya Si and Er Qi able to prove that dreams would come true if you chase for it? Xiao Bei is stuck between Ya Si and Er Qi and who will she end up with in the end?...
