Best Salons for Colour Root Retouch For As Low As $60 in Singapore

Published on Oct 02, 2019

Is your hair greying? Have you tried covering it up on the cheap at home with box dyes? If you have, you'll know that those DYI options can be damaging and may even lead to the colour fading in awful patches. That's why it's best to leave the colouring to the professionals.

But if you baulk at the idea of colouring your whole head of hair, the alternative is Colour Root Retouch. Your stylist will colour only the roots so the rest of the hair is not as damaged and, most importantly, it would be way cheaper than colouring a full head of hair.

If this option sounds exciting to you, here's a list of good salons you can turn to sorted by price, location and length they would consider a retouch for your convenience because we are that nice.
