Tania Image

We saved the cheapest for the last! Tania Image not only offer $3.90 haircuts, they also offer colouring, treatments and rebonding services all at affordable prices. The salon is usually frequented by regular customers, so we are guessing the services might not be too shabby after all.

These salons are great for a quick trim but if you want something more fancy ie. short cut or a more manageable A-Line cut without breaking the bank, check out these salons:

1. No. 8 Hair Studio @ Chinese Garden

Good Cheap No. 8 Hair Studio

This new hair salon near Chinese Garden MRT may be a little higher than the usual salons but their level of service and the resulting cut and colour are also far superior. Here, the hair directors have more than 10 years of experience and offer very personalized cuts at a level of service that is similar to Japanese salons. 

2. Pro Trim Korean Salon @ Jurong East JEM

Good and Cheap Korean Hair Salon Pro Trim

The $10 cuts simply can't get you the haircut that top Korean celebrities are sporting. For an authentic Korean style haircut, we'd highly recommend Korean stylists Chris, 1 June or Lee Han, who are all very highly sought after in the West. 

Alternatively, you can consider these hair salons located downtown in Orchard or CBD Area under $50.
