Summary

Close to the city and yet hidden from the hustle and bustle of busy Orchard, Singapore Shopping Centre houses Act Point’s third outlet helmed by Salon Manager Bro. As there are relatively few walk-in customers, this outlet caters mostly to regular customers of Bro and Jess Kong, both of whom have gathered a sizable client base over the last 10-20 years. Both of them have been praised for the quality of perms they achieve, possible only because of their long experience and insistence on using only the most suitable hair products for customers (the full range of Shiseido Hair Straight is offered!). Best of all, Act Point offer no packages and no hardselling; stylists are focused on giving you only the best hairstyle.  With experienced hairstylists, good perming results, and affordable prices, Act Point at Dhoby Ghaut Singapore Shopping Centre is a great place to go for a peaceful afternoon perm.

John from Act Point Salon

Because we want you to come back, we do only what’s best for your hair – John

Sylvia Chew Founder of Act Point Salon

因为顾客相信我们,把自己的头发交给我们打理,我们就有那个责任做得最好!Sylvia

No packages, no upselling of unnecessary hair products and services – only solid hair advice shared at length by its experienced hairstylists, Act Point Salon sets the industry standard for being one of the most transparent and trustworthy hair salons in Singapore. Don’t be surprised if a hairstylist at Act Point refuses to do a specific hair service you asked for; if the hair service is deemed to be too damaging for your hair condition or if the stylists are not confident of doing a great job, you might find yourself politely declined. This high level of integrity and responsibility is instilled into every Act Point hairstylist by its owners Sylvia Chew and John Ng. Having been in the industry for more than 20 years, Sylvia and John understands that building a long term relationship with clients is more important than profiting from an unsuspecting customer.

 
Bro from Act Point Salon
Bro (Salon Manager)

As his name suggests, Bro is one of those hairstylists you can trust like a brother. He jokes with you when you are feeling chatty, gives you your personal space when you need a little peace and advises you honestly when you require hair advice. With his more than 10 years of experience in this field, he is particularly good with perming and hair colouring (Asian Hair) and has accumulated a loyal customer base, many of whom followed him from Beach Road to Dhoby Ghaut. 

 
Jess Kong from Act Point Salon
Jess Kong (Senior Hairstylist)

Having worked closely with Sylvia since more than 20 years ago, Jess is one of the key haircutting specialists in Act Point. Though skilled at all major hair services, she is fantastic at short hairstyles for females.  Fluent in both mandarin and English, she has a strong loyal clientele that includes quite a few Caucasian ladies!

 
Kim at Act Point Salon

Kim (Hair Assistant)

A sweet Vietnamese lady with over 2 years of experience in the hair industry, Kim is one of those who makes you feel utterly comfortable in the salon whether you are a new or regular customer. She assists hairstylists in hair wash, hair colouring and rebonding. Note that Kim is more comfortable conversing in Mandarin.

    Treated my hair with a new coat of colour at Act Point Salon, Dhoby Ghaut. I am loving it. It’s darker and definitely silkier. Many thanks to Shiseido for the kind sponsor. Give Bro Kiek, the Salon Manager a shout if you visit – he provides honest opinions and tips on hair styling.

    After months of consideration, I rebonded my hair at Actpoint Salon by Bro. I rebonded on my birthday month thus they rewarded me with $50 voucher to be use. Which mean i only spend $100 on my hair. Rebond, cut plus treatment. Nice right. Hahaha. I’m beginning to love my straight hair now. It makes me look more decent and gentle looking(point made by others). Seeing my hair getting straight also means my end of internship. I rebonded my hair one day after my intern end.
