Best Hair Salons for Perms in Singapore (Updated 2022)

Published on Nov 16, 2021

If there's one actress who has blown up recently, it is without a doubt Ho Yeon Jung. Going from 400k to 22.8m followers on insta, one of the integral parts to her fiery badass vibe is her hair!

If you're like the rest of us though, and don't have the time to spend using a curling iron (or, unfortunately, stylists to do it for you), perms are a solid alternative to getting that wavy curled look! From adding volume and shape to framing, perms remain one of the integral tools of fashion, enhancing hair of any length and colour, allowing you to look (somewhat) like Ho Yeon Jung (from Squid Game Hairstyles) , Bae Suzy in The Startup or even Lily Collins in Emily in Paris

Perms, however is a tricky thing. Do it right and you'll have effortless glamorous hair for months. 

Do it wrongly and you may have to suffer the pain of seeing frizzy crazy hair every morning. To make sure you get the best results possible, we actually go down to the salons to check their skill and service levels so you know what salons you can trust to get your curls. 

We separate the list into two, one based on Number of Reviews from Beauty Undercover Readers and the Second, based on our Editor's Choice. Read on to find out which they are.

Best Hair Salons for Perms Based on Positive Reviews

1. Pro Trim @ Ngee Ann City Takashimaya,Causeway Point,JEM

Want to perm your without without travelling too far out? We have good news for you.

According to number of positive reviews, Beauty Undercover's top hair salon for perms is none other than Pro Trim Hair Salon, which has outlets in town (Ngee Ann City), Jurong (JEM) and Woodlands (Causeway Point). 

The salon decor itself may be modest but you'll still find bosses, tycoons, celebrity pastors along with regular folks like you and me as their loyal customers because of ONE THING: Skill.

Founder of Pro Trim, Tino, saw how Korean stylists are able to create romantic, beautiful hairstyles and was hence one of the first to bring highly talented Korean stylists to Singapore, with Joel Park being a good example. 

Joel's perms are glossy, gorgeous and have curves in all the right places.

But it isn't just him. Many of the Korean counterparts are able to achieve that celeb-worthy glamorous curls that you see in K-dramas.

What did surprise us was how the perms by local stylists are also raising their standards to meet that of the Korean stylists.

Taking local stylist Evane as an example. She has been highly requested for her perms thanks to her ability to design perms that make one's face look smaller

We haven't even talked about Ann from Pro Trim Jurong East JEM.

Or Yeng from Pro Trim Ngee Ann City who've also accumulated a following of her own.

This fusion of local with Korean style has allowed Pro Trim to create perms that achieves the best of both worlds - to look good while still making it easy to maintain in Singapore. 

2. 99 Percent Hair Studio

99 Percent Hair Studio may be best known for their hair colours but reviewers will tell you that they've made great strides in their perms. 

best perm salon 99 percent hair studio

Thanks to continuous training and a focus on overall hairstyle design incorporating cut, colour and perm, they've been making waves with their variety of loose curls that adds so much to your personality.

You don't have to go too curly if you don't want to; just look at Agent M's transformation. She did a perm at 99 Percent and look at her glamorous transformation!

best perm salon 99 percent hair studio

Best part is that it remains easily maintainable afterwards. 

best perm salon 99 percent hair studio

There's also no hardselling or upselling here as stylists want customers to feel as comfortable at the salon as they are at home. In fact, they've been introducing more and more value-added services such as complimentary head massage and hand mask treatment. We love it that the stylists don't do it just because they have to but provide these services with heart as they genuinely appreciate the chance to connect with customers.

In our eyes, it is this signature sincerity that truly makes 99 Percent stand out. 

While prices are not the cheapest, their solid skill, fashion-forward hairstyles and great service make them a salon you MUST-VISIT in Singapore!

3. Style NA Korean Hair Salon by Joel Park @ Compass One / Parkway Parade

Promotions

  • 20% off All Hair Services for New Customers Only
  • 20% off All Hair Services if you Refer a friend and an additional $100 credit for your next referral
  • Spend & Stand a chance to win a $500 voucher

Do you feel as frustrated as we do about the fact that many hair salons in the Sengkang area force hair packages after hair packages on you? I'm sure we all fear going in with one treatment in mind and leaving having done two more, with $500 down the drain because of some package deal the stylist convinced you would "totally make a huge difference if you just tried it".

Rest assured, the stylists here don't do that.

Confident in their level of skill and service, the stylists here don't have to do that to accumulate their huge customer base here. In fact, this salon used to be ProTrim @ Compasspoint before being revamed as Style NA. They added 3 Korean stylists, Jenny, Asha and Luna who're all very popular with residents here. 

best perm salon style na

We followed Agent YQ to get a Digital Perm by her regular stylist Asha and look at the beautiful perm she ended up with?

best perm salon style na

It isn't just in Compass One that you can find Style NA. Lucky for those of you staying in the East, the outlet in Parkway Parade is fully staffed by talented Korean stylists Viki, Jina, Lala and Bella, all of whom are simply amazing with perms as well. 

best perm salon style na

The perms aren't just gorgeous, they can correct some of the quirks of your natural hair texture that may be annoying you for ages.

We also recently sent Agent G to try Jina and she came back impressed with the natural perm that made her look a bit more like Suzy Bae.

With affordable services rendered by skillful authentic Korean stylists, it is no wonder why Style NA is so popular among salons in its area.

4. Chez Vous HideAway @ Ngee Ann City

best perm salon chez vous hideaway

Prices: 1 x Haircut + 1 x Premium Service (Digital Perm) = $318.86

There are a number of highly photogenic places on this list, but the media has crowned this one the champion, with Her WorldFemale MagazineWomen's Weekly and even Channelnewsasia calling Chez Vous Hideaway Singapore's most Instagrammable hair salon with its pop-up museum decor that brings you from one continent to another, a Relaxation Lounge for customers who arrive early to get a complimentary scalp fix with the free Blue Laser treatment and an oxygen boost.

best perm salon chez vous hideaway

Of course, this virgin concept salon created by the founders of Chez Vous Hair Salon isn't just a pretty place. Reviewers will tell you that the perms here are so good, they can possibly pass off as Korean.

best perm salon chez vous hideaway

In fact, Agent G will tell you that her recent perm at Chez Vous HideAway by local stylist Oscar is possibly her favourite

Maybe because Oscar learned perming from highly skillful stylists at some of Singapore's top Korean salons and continued honing his skills afterwards, his perm has a distinct Korean vibe that she loved. 

best perm salon chez vous hideaway

One would think that the price here will be pretty high given all that they are offering. We were hence surprised to find the prices here very competitive for perms at $318.86!

best perm salon chez vous hideaway

If you're looking for an exclusive hair experience that will make you feel good from start to the end without burning a hole in your pocket, Chez Vous HideAway is a MUST TRY!

5. The Space Korean Hair Salon @ The Cathay Dhoby Ghaut

best perm salon the space korean

Promotions

  • 18% off Korean Digital Perm + Haircut + 1-step treatment NOW $270 for long hair (U.P: from $320)
  • 13% off Premium Korean Digital Perm + Haircut + 1-step treatment NOW $320 for long hair (U.P: from $370)

  • 10% off Premium Korean Digital Perm + Haircut + 3-step Treatment NOW $414 for long hair (U.P: From $460) 

This charming salon is centrally situated in the quaint, historic Cathay building, and home to one of the top perm experts in Singapore - Korean stylist Lee Han. With numerous years on our island spent converting unmanageable mops into classy, compliant coiffs, and his ethic of making sure your 'do looks delectable from every angle before declaring the job done, Lee Han is so popular that after leaving his previous salon, Beauty Undercover was swamped with concerned enquiries as to where he had gone.

Not surprising since he is able to perm every kind of hair from bleached to frizzy and damaged - he'll try his best to give you the curls of your dreams with the wide range of lotions available. 

best perm salon the space korean

Lee Han is not the only attraction though; The Space Korean Hair Salon has recently added celebrity stylist and top instructor Jin, who has shown to be simply amazing in both haircuts and perms.

Look at the gorgeous perms she did and you'll know why she is so popular back in Korea and why her appointment slots are filling up fast in Singapore. 

And then there's Shasha and Mia who have also gotten great reviews for trendy perms and cuts as well. 

If you don't already know, all the stylists here are Korean and the entire place look distinctively like a hair boutique in Korea. We expected prices here to be high but am positively surprised to find the price here very competitive. Cost of the haircut, which is typically separate from that of the perm in other establishments, is included in the perm, meaning that beautifully pruned princess curls can be yours for about $240 to $270 (inclusive of cut and digital perm). 

Understand why it is so popular among Beauty Undercover agents now? 

Agent J got her hair permed at The Space recently. Read about her experience here.

6. Act Point Salon @ Midpoint Orchard

best perm salon act point

Prices: Haircut + Digital Perm + Treatment = $240

Ever had a good hair experience soured by overly persistent upselling? It's not uncommon for salons to encourage customers to opt for more expensive hair treatments or packages, even when they don't need it. In this salon though, you're more likely to experience the exact opposite.

Here, there’s no packages, no upselling of unnecessary hair products and services.  Stylists at Act Point are more likely to dissuade you from going for unnecessary services, saving you money instead.

best perm salon act point

It is specifically this honesty and heart for customers that have won over customers who love their value-for-money perms, rebonding and haircut.

Imagine getting the above done from just $240 for haircut + digital perm + treatment! The stylists here do so many perms that they know what customers like and hence are able to deliver perms that last for 6 months or more.

best perm salon act point

Another important point: the perms here don't just look good, it is also easily maintainable back at home.

9. Chez Vous Hair Salon @ Ngee Ann City Takashimaya

best perm salon chez vous

Promotions: 15% off Advante Water Treatment for First Time Customers

We mentioned Chez Vous HideAway previously but the main Chez Vous Hair Salon is no slouch either. In fact, Chez Vous is the OG hair salon with stylists who were all previously hair directors or owners of their own hair salons. It is hence not a surprise to see many Managing Directors and high level executives who patronize the salon here. 

Chez Vous Hair Salon is also the flagship salon where the stylists innovate and test the newest, latest and most advanced hair treatments. We are particularly enamored with their Anti-Damage Movement Perm which uses the latest Advante Perm lotion to create bouncy curls with minimal damage.

We followed Agent V to Chez Vous to get her Anti-Damage Movement Perm at Chez Vous and the stylists at Chez Vous genuinely blew us away with the results.

best perm salon no.8 hair studio

Worth the Journey to the West is No. 8 Hair Studio @ Vision Exchange Jurong East, where you can get director-level hair services at pocket-friendly prices. Maybe because the stylists are not so talkative, they listen a lot more and are better able to grasp customers needs and deliver what they want. To our pleasant surprise, No. 8 Hair Studio managed to give us the serene, calming vibes of a Japanese hair salon service, except that the stylists here are local.

While many know them better for their cuts and colours, stylists Shim, Lvan and Wenny are also phenomenal at perms, providing effortless waves that fuse function and flair.

Don't you love how Lvan manages to infuse waves to give off that natural femininity?

With the calibre of international star stylists here - including Sam Woo, Gabriel, Andrew, Anneth, Veena, Soobin, Vicky and BK, etc, it's incredible that there's no competition among the crew, but a sense of warm camaraderie that contributes to the easy, comfortable vibe in this otherwise posh salon with a fully-stocked bar and massage chairs.

If you're talking about perms though, we still prefer to go for Korean stylists Soobin, Vicky, Anna and Bk, all of whom have a huge following among both Korean and local customers.

We're especially in love with Soobin's perms as she knows just how to do magic to make your curls come alive. She's after all one of the few hairstylists in Singapore who goes to Vidal Sassoon London to hone her hairdressing skill EVERY SINGLE YEAR before the pandemic happened. This makes her literally one of the BEST hairstylists we've seen for both haircut and perm. Whatever problems you may have, she'll definitely be able to solve. 

The only problem is that her schedule is often full so you'd have to be really lucky to get an appointment with her. Otherwise, Vicky, Anna, BK are all very strong with perms still and is still highly recommended to get your charming swirls here at MODE Studio.

Centrepoint may not be the first place people think of when they think of hair makeovers but Be U Hair Design has made makeovers into a science with their systematic consultation methodology.

Here, the stylists actually use rulers to measure your face before designing the right haircut and hairstyle for you, allowing them to tailor the hairstyles that best suits your face shape.

11. Koinonia Salon @ Tiong Bahru

Price: From $90-$480

This salon may be pastelicious but that's not why Koinonia is on this list of best hair salons for perms in Singapore. Just like how Shua transformed the shop in Blk 71 from an aging hardware store to the homely and nostalgic salon that balances the old and new, renowned Korean stylist and founder Shua aims to bring out everyone's inner beauty with perms and volume rebonding.

And she doesn't just want to do that alone.

Shua has carefully selected an international team of perm experts from Taiwan, Korea and Malaysia and sets aside time for these stylists to continuously upgrade their skill so that they can keep ahead of trends while customizing it to our needs.
