When we think about neighborhood hair salons, we often think about aunties with outdated hair colours and small curly wurly perms. While that impression may still be accurate to a certain extent, we think we found an exception in Tampines - Color Bar by Full House Salon.
Here are 10 Reasons why we think this gem of a hair salon in Tampines is better than the typical hair salon we see in Orchard...
The team here is so good with trendy hair colours that customers travel all the way from Jurong to get their hair done at Color Bar by Full House Salon.
Whether you're thinking of platinum blonde
or milk tea ash, they will definitely be able to achieve the colour of your dreams.
We also hear many customers get their hair colour fixed here after they were unable to achieve the colour of their dreams at overhyped hair salons in Orchard.
It's clear from their loyal and growing customer base that the stylists here are very good at what they do. This can be attributed to the fact that the management team regularly sends them for certification and training overseas to further hone and expand their skills.
In fact, many of the stylists attended hairdressing courses at Vidal Sassoon London, and the rest of the team are all certified to be Joico Master Colorists! Color Bar by Full House Salon's emphasis on stylist's education and training definitely elevates their stylist to another level and puts this neighbourhood salon on par with most hair salons in Orchard.
Whether you're thinking about Guy Tang #MYDENTITY, Joico Hair Colour, Tokio Inkarami, Davines Treatment, Spectrum Color, Goldwell Color or MUCOTA, Color Bar by Full House Salon has it all. Instead of sticking to a specific brand for economical reasons, the management team is very dedicated to bringing in only the very best in quality and are very generous with giving the ultimate best to their customers.
That is a reason why they are able to achieve such light colours without causing customers' hair to become too damaged.
It's not just at atas salons that you can expect the stylists to hear your concerns and assess your hair condition. The stylists here give an honest and in-depth consultation before starting the hair service. This helps to ensure that customers are more likely to be satisfied with the service. They don't rush through the consultation and are willing to hear you out while giving their professional input.

How often do you hear of neighbourhood salons winning awards?
Color Bar by Full House Salon won the 2017 Editor’s Choice Best Coloring (Classic) Service Award in Women's Weekly! Considering it's just a neighbourhood salon, it's a big feat to clinch an award and be featured in a well-known magazine, beating out other high-end salons.
Where else can you get haircuts by Vidal Sassoon trained stylists at $25? You certainly can't in Orchard.
Haircuts at Full House Salon start from $25 depending on length if you don't require a wash. Due to their higher quality bleaches, fewer bleaches is also required to achieve your desired colour, saving you more $$$ each time.
We all hate when salons are pushy with their sales and borderline force you to sign up for packages or add-on special treatments which you don't really need. Unfortunately, we're finding more of such incidents happening in hair salons located in Orchard.
Here at Color Bar by Full House Salon though, the stylists don't sell packages so the entire service feels very comfortable. They will only recommend you to add on a particular service if they feel you really need it but it's entirely up to you to say no and they will leave it at that.
Conveniently located within walking distance to Tampines MRT, Color Bar by Full House Salon is easily accessible for those staying in the East. Thankfully, now you don't have to travel all the way to Orchard for quality hair service. Being located in a heartland area also gives the salon a more laid back and comfy feel, and what's not to love about a salon that's warm and inviting, and offers great hair services within reach!
Finding a parking spot in town can be somewhat a nightmare, which is why you might want to give that salon in Orchard a miss as if you are heading to Color Bar by Full House Salon, there's an HDB carpark just behind the salon so you don't have to worry about not being able to find (cheap) parking or having to pay ERP just to get close to the salon.
Is it us or do you find that some stylists in Orchard treat customers more like a necessary evil they have to tolerate in order to earn an income?
That's definitely not the case here at Full House Salon.
We can see the delight on the stylists' faces when we return for a hair service as we continue the conversation we had from the previous visit.
They make us feel taken care of and for that, it makes it really easy for us to come back again and again!
