Summary

Close to the city and yet hidden from the hustle and bustle of busy Orchard, Singapore Shopping Centre houses Act Point’s second outlet helmed by Salon Manager Sophie. As there are relatively few walk-in customers, this outlet caters mostly to regular customers of Sophie, Ivy and Jess Kong, all 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.

    The team wore red to welcome CNY, great effort to create a CNY atmosphere!

    Wanted to try a new salon for a change instead of my usual neighbourhood haircut. After doing some research, decided to choose Act Point for its good review and affordable price.
    Booked an appointment with Sophie Goh in 2015 for a hair cut.

    My hair is naturally straight with slight waves. Let Sophie decide how she want to cut for me since i thought experienced hairstylist knows better. Also told her my concern, thin my hair but not layer it as i didnt want my hair to twist here and there (like a christmas tree). She did thin it and not layer.. after the nicely salon blow dryed hair, went back home to wash, the few inches of my hair at the bottom twist/curl badly.

    Am only writing the review now as i wanted to observe a couple of months and let my hair grow out, maybe it will become better. But the twist/ curl persist till i had to grow my hair out and had a haircut at my usual neighbourhood area. Haircut here is not recommended or raved perhaps as much as their perm/rebond (havent tried before). As for now will not be going back there if i want a haircut. Will stick to my neighbourhood haircut.

      Dear G K Tan,

      Thank you for visiting Act Point Salon!
      We are sorry to hear that you did not like the haircut from us.
      As you mentioned that the one-length haircut previously was too heavy, Sophie wanted to help change your hairstyle a little with a graduation bob cut that will lighten your hair with only very little thinning done at the back. Although she did mention that the haircut requires blowdrying to prevent twisting, she may not have made that point across clearly enough and for that we apologize!
      She has taken note of your feedback and will seek to improve customer consultation in this area.
      Thanks again for sharing your feedback and we hope that you can visit us again in the future!

      Warm regards
      Team of Act Point Salon

    Booked an appointment with Sophie at Dhoby Ghuat after seeing so many positive reviews. Had intended to do a perm. Upon reaching, was greeted and drink was served. Sophie check out my hair and advised me not to do the perm as I had just done cosme rebonding 3 months ago and if I proceed with the perm, the ends will be dry and not lasting. She also mentioned that with my current length, even if I do the perm, I’ll need to spend time styling. Appreciate her sincere advice. It is clear that the salon has live up to its name and was really sincere in doing the best for the customers and not just earning profits. As compared to the volume rebond which i had done last yr in zinc salon, I really appreciate the advice given. My hair was practically fried after doing volume rebonding in zinc, the stylist make no attempt to tell me that my hair is too dry for perm.

    Proceeded with a wash and blow. Products used were good. Head massage was great. Advice on how to better care for my scalp was given. The price for hair wash is also very reasonable. All in all, a wonderful experience and I will be back soon for the hair treatment, and hopefully a perm when my hair is ready.

    Went to Dhoby Ghaut to perm my hair. Absolutely love it! Now I can enjoy the beauty of my luscious curly locks. Great service and great experience for a first time in a hair salon receiving professional works done.

    With sister’s recommendation and after doing some online research, I decided that I shall settle at Act Point Salon. Based on the reviews, I decided to seek Sophie Goh’s help to make it a success. It’s a painful 5hrs of process…

    Snipping off 5-6inches hair –> Hair Wash –> Blow dry –> Apply Rebonding cream–> Hair Wash –> Hair conditioning –> Hair Treatment –> Hair Wash–> Blow dry –> Final Hair Cut –> Styling –> Apply Serum

    Sophie is a rather detailed person, she will share with me the different type of rebonding cream for the various hair texture and what is the combination of the rebonding cream that will be used. However, she is very popular and there are many customer that goes for her in particular, eventually, she need to split herself to various customers and most of the time, it is the stylist assistant that help with my rebonding, etc. But she did the final touch up though… But I certainly do hope that she spend more time on my hair since this is my first visit to her.

    In case you are interested to look for Sophie, she is the Salon manager, so her price will be higher than normal hairstylist or Senior hairstylist. And she is not attached to any particular outlet, but rather she moves around the 3 outlets, namely in Beach Road Shaw Tower, Orchard International Building, Dhoby Ghaut Singapore Shopping Center. One thing good about the Act Point Salon, they are flexible enough to allow me booking when Sophie is supposed to be in another outlet on my intended appointed date.

    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.
