If you've recently bleached / permed / coloured or rebonded your hair, it may be time to consider heading to the salon for a hair treatment.
With the hot and humid weather in Singapore, our hair suffers from damage and lose hydration more easily. As a result, our hair looks dull and lifeless just weeks and months into our new hairstyle.
Fear not, for hair treatments can help you save the day! What hair treatments do is to repair damage to the hair and replenish the necessary amino acids and other minerals that the hair may be missing.
What type of hair treatment best suits your hair though? It really depends on your hair texture so only hair professionals can give you an accurate answer. That's why we scour through the reviews to collate a list of the best hair salons in Singapore for hair treatments.
We've separated the best hair salons according to:
This way, we can bring to you choices with as least bias as possible.
Read on to find out if your salon is on the list!
One of the most beautiful hair salons in Singapore, Walking on Sunshine boasts not just a instagrammable interior decor but also a range of treatment choices including Shiseido and Tokio Inkarami. We really love it that this is a one-stop shop for hair services, nail services and even a cafe.
This means that you can get your nails done while you are doing a hair treatment and enjoying a cuppa latte, with complimentary salads and danish pastries.
Where else in Singapore can you actually get that?
Price: From $199
With Her World, Female Magazine and Women's Weekly calling them Singapore's most Instagrammable Hair Salon, Chez Vous Hideaway is no doubt our most anticipated new hair salon of 2019 and your must-try for 2020. It may not have the abundant greenery you see in Walking on Sunshine but every single room is carefully curated to give you a unique experience.
What's interesting about Hideaway is that they do not have a treatment only service. Customers interested in Treatment must go for a Haircut + Treatment which cost a minimum of $199. The price is actually pretty attractive especially if you opt for their high end Tokio Inkarami Treatment. The price is actually lower than many other salons on this list... plus you actually get a haircut thrown in.
Most importantly, an experience here at Hideaway is like no other. They give a complimentary shoulder massage, blue laser treatment before / after your service and even use essential oil during the experience.
You really got to experience this to understand their magic!
Looking for more than just a hair treatment? 99 Percent Hair Studio is the designated Wella flagship salon that offers not just a wide range of hair treatments but also value-added services to pamper you during the process. This includes a complimentary scalp analysis as well as hand mask to keep your hands feeling soft and smooth while you are undergoing the hair treatment.
There are also 3 outlets (Orchard, Bugis and Bedok), making it a convenient choice to go to for those working or staying in central or in the East!
The Space Korean Hair Salon may be best known for their perms but Lee Han has priced hair treatments so affordably that it is a popular add on to their usual perms and volume rebonding. They carry a range of treatments from MUCOTA, Tokio Inkarami and also Hahonico from Korea; depending on your hair texture and condition, the stylists would be able to recommend the right one to achieve the best effect.
With the hair well protected, it is no surprise why the perms and rebonding here turns out so well!
If you're looking for a Korean stylist to practise your Korean with (without leaving your neighbourhood), Style NA Korean Salon should be on your consideration list. Their outlets in Parkway Parade and Compass One feature 3-4 Korean stylists, most of whom have been working in Singapore for some time. Therefore, they understand the local hair issues as well as our preferences, so a hair visit with them can be pretty rewarding!
Price: From $89
The salon may not have many reviews but Be Salon is one of the salons we LOVE to recommend for treatments. That is because the stylist team here is helmed by Sham, who is an incredibly knowledgeable local stylist (who was very very very popular at another top hair salon previously). The moment you let him touch your hair, he can guess all your previous hair history and help you diagnose what went wrong and what you can do next to help your hair look amazing again.
We LOVE how he and his team is able to mix and match different treatments to personalize one just for you, all while keeping your budget in mind.
With all the stylists feeling more like brothers and sisters rather than stylists, this is one salon for the keeps.
Price: Shiny hair treatment $70, Platinum head spa $140, Tokio Inkarami $180, Michaela original head spa + Tokio Inkarami $280
One of the few hair salons owned by a Japanese Cosmetics Company, Michaela offers exclusive hair treatments that include expensive medical grade ingredients such as DMAE and even bird's nest in the hair treatment. The best part is that they offer at a value-for-money price starting from $70! Of course, they also offer other top brands of treatments such as Tokio Inkarami, along with a heavenly scalp massage during the hair treatment and so, is an experience you should not miss!
Flamingo Hair Studio isn't like any other hair salon. It is predominantly Japanese, with decor so pretty it feels like an oasis. It's a unique salon that is hidden in the middle of the CBD district with a collection of Japanese comics, hairstyle illustrations and quaint jewellery in different corners.
Aside from the beautiful decor that encourages all its customers to relax, Flamingo is very popular for hair treatments as they bring in only top notch treatments they've personally tested from Japan!
Price: Head spa $30-$50, 3-step Moisturizing Hair Treatment $80
Art-Noise is one of the most popular hair salons in Ikebukuro, Japan as well as Singapore. Their winning formula of exceptional service, relaxing ambience and high-quality products is why people love them so much. The best part is that you will get one-to-one service. No assembly-line treatment where you are passed from one stylist to another.
Price: From $90
Shua may be a Korean stylist but she co-founded an international team of stylists who are great across services such as perms, volume rebonding and haircuts. Perms and volume rebonding require healthy hair to look its best, so its not surprising that she took the effort to scout the best of hair treatments within the salon!
You'll therefore find that customers who go to Koinonia love adding on the treatments thanks to its effectiveness!
COVO Japanese Hair Salon isn't just popular because it's a Japanese salon; it is specifically highly sought after for its treatments. With a strong focus on hair health, the stylists here are constantly researching to bring the best treatments to Singapore. This includes the newly introduced NOV treatment as well as Eclasta treatment which has prices as low as $55!
With their awesome Japanese service and wide range of quality hair treatments that work, COVO is our top choice for hair treatments in Singapore.
Another salon that constantly innovates to bring in the best from Japan is Rubik. The stylists here are constantly in touch with their counterparts in Japan and have so far brought to us Tokio Inkarami as well as the revolutionary water-based hair treatment Fukugen. Fukugen has so far been shown to be very effective in repairing even bleached hair!
Price: Express treatment from $45, Olaplex from $90, Others from $240
This is one of Korea's biggest and most well-known salon chains frequented by Korean top celebrities such as Big Bang, Lee Seung Ki, Wonder Girls, 2NE1, and Song Hye Kyo, and even international artistes is now in Singapore! With complimentary wine along with yummy cakes, beverages and bananas thrown in, a hair treatment at LeeKaJa is among our favourite in Singapore.
In fact, Agent G went for a scalp and hair treatment at LeeKaJa some time ago and loved the heavenly experience!
A hidden gem in Raffles City, The Beauty Emporium by The Urban Aesthetics is the flagship salon for Tokio Inkarami in Singapore. We love it not only because of the friendly ounter staff, bright lights that lifts our spirits and the small details that exude luxury and sophistication, the salon is always the first to receive any latest new hair treatments Tokio and its brands may be introducing.
Service is also very attentive here, so you can be sure to have a good time here at The Beauty Emporium by The Urban Aesthetics!
Branche is certainly pulling out all the stops to give its customers the SIA First Class Suite equivalent of hair and nail service experience. Whatever you imagined a top salon in Japan offers, well, you’ll find it in Branche. This is a must-try for those of you looking for something more than just the usual hair service!
AUBE may not be as luxurious as the rest but it has brought in quality hair treatments from Japan at among the LOWEST prices thus far!
All the stylists here are also Japanese with many years of experience, with most rather fluent in English.
With reliable Japanese stylists offering amazing omotenashi service at low prices, AUBE has therefore become one of the salons we recommend the most to friends.
