  • Stylists here can help you cope with receding hairline and other issues.

But that's not all! Kenaris' service, especially the hair wash deserves a special mention as the blissful message feels like a slice of heaven!

The stylists here are experienced and offer good Japanese service and are great at designing the right haircut for your face! They may not however be our top choice if you're hoping for them to explain about your hair / scalp condition because the command of English for some of the stylists here are limited.

3. Gene by Ginrich @ Wisma Atria

Gene by Ginrich

What we love:

  • Derek is highly popular among Beauty Undercover Agents for his men's haircuts
  • The AVEDA Scalp Treatment here is highly recommended

Other than the classy decor and calming lemongrass scent, you're likely to notice a lot of Caucasian and local men walking out the salon with stylo-milo haircuts by two of its most popular hairstylists: Derek and Jamie. 

Not overly chatty, these two very experienced stylists know exactly what to do to make their customers look and feel more assertive at work with the right haircut! Aside from haircut though, we really like the AVEDA Scalp Treatment here which pampers even as it treats your scalp!

Avant Garde Plan B

What we love:

  • Detailed, easily manageable haircut
  • Spacious location

If you want a cut that lasts longer than other salons, don't miss a haircut by The Bund!

The stylists here at The Bund - both Ricky and Zen are very detailed in their haircut as they systematically cut the entire hair to achieve a perfect symmetric cut that you'll find easier to gel and easier to manage! 

Parking may be an issue but if you don't mind walking over from Far East Plaza to their new location in Goodwood Park, we're confident you'll enjoy the haircut here as well. 

Price: $35 - $50

5. Pro Trim Korean Salon @ Jurong East JEM

Pro Trim Korean Salon

Pro Trim Korean Salon might not be the first salon that comes to mind when looking for Best Korean Hair Salons in Singapore, but with its rapidly growing team of illustrious Korean stylists, Pro Trim Korean Salon is definitely one of the top choices for quality salons that are affordable. Many of the Korean stylists here have previously worked at the prestigious Apgujeong salons, even having Korean singers and artistes as their customers!

Price: $38 (Standard), $45 (Korean Stylist) and $63 (Director's Cut)

Best Budget Hair Salon for Men's Haircut:

 Kojimaya @ The Central


At an affordable price of just $12, one would think the haircuts at Kojimaya would yeild unsatisfactory results. Quite the opposite actually. Kojimaya differs from the usual $10 hair salons like QB or EC House by allowing you to choose your desired stylists and not imposing the 10 minute time limit on the haircut. This allows for a more meticulous, less rushed cut for budget conscious customers who are not that particular about a fashionable cut.

Price: $12
