Where To Find Them

Overview

Just within the fringe of the CBD area, The Adelphi is definitely not the first place that comes to our mind when thinking about great hair salons and hairstylists. The mall is aging and dotted with many audio shops with facades that look like they belong to the 1990s.

Bargain hunters will know, however, that this is the best type of setting for diamonds in the rough, undiscovered gems that offer great value for the service rendered... and that's what we found when we stumbled upon CALEO Hair Salon in Adelphi.

While the bright colours and energetic vibe set CALEO apart from other salons, the main attraction for us here are its talented stylist Kelvin.

Kelvin is the founder of CALEO, a warm and friendly stylist customers love to chat with. Of the hair services, we're especially in LOVE with his scalp treatment. His natural intuition as well as strong training from his previous courses make his scalp massage undoubtedly one of the best we've experienced in Singapore. Combine that with his in-depth knowledge of the scalp and you've got a must-try stylist for scalp treatment.

Scalp aside, Kelvin is popular for both haircuts and perms as well. Straight haired ladies will vouch for his skills in trendy and classic bob haircuts while male customers will tell you that his cut is simply awesome! For men, he is especially great with pompadour and comb-back haircuts. Ladies looking for a change will also like how his digital perm adds natural waves and volume to their hair, without making it excessively dry.

He is meticulous in what he does and is among the most patient hairstylists we've seen, who is willing to take the time to explain why a certain hairstyle suits you better than others.

Hair service aside, we find it very enjoyable to hear stories of what he does outside of hair; when he is not at the salon, Kelvin would be volunteering at homes and various places for people who are less fortunate. Even though we're not volunteering ourselves, it makes us feel good somehow when we're supporting him.

Overall, a gem of a hair salon you can trust in Adelphi for great hair services at pocket-friendly prices!

Patient & skillful hairstylist

Requested for Kelvin. Just needed a hair maintenance after growing out my hair. Okay I needed more than hair maintenance. I needed help. After my decade long hairstylist left, I went to a random hair salon to get my hair done. Not sure how it was butchered. Anyway, Kelvin salvaged my hair so it becomes more easier to manage now. He's so patient to actually LISTEN what hairstyle you want & giving out tips as he trims. Service with a heart. See you again on my next trip! :D

Nice environment and Friendly Hairstylists

Caleo never fails to give me the homely experience for a hairdo. Its comfortable environment and friendly hairstylists keeps you wanting to go back for your future routine hairdo appointments. My hairstylist Kelvin Fong is able to fulfil my dream hairstyle whereby my hair would still look good even when I get out of bed the next morning. Highly recommended! If you never tried, you'll never know!

Cozy and Best Haircut in Town

Caleo provides a highly personalised hairdressing experience in a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere at The Adelphi in the centre of town. I like the no rushed and happy environment at Caleo, a welcomed change from the hussle and buzzle of usual hairdressers in town. The quality of haircuts at Caleo have been consistently of highest quality and prices are reasonable. I will remain a loyal patron at Caleo @ The Adelphi!

Profession and fun

Kelvin has been my stylist for more than 5-years and I have never looked for someone else after meeting him. I have a mad lock of wavy hairs which constantly troubled me but Kelvin always has different ways to make my hair look chic (with minimum styling effort) and he always managed to pull me off in very up-to-date styles and colours. More importantly, he bothers to understand my requirements and my preference and never fail to make day shine with laughter when I visit him.

Excellent environment and service for kids

Little Miss Maia needed a trim very badly for her unruly hair but was too fussy with who touches her head. Kelvin did an excellent job in getting the job done and also having miss fussy pout sit and enjoy the entire session without any bout of tantrum. Overall, job well done and great haircut. The salon is also situated conveniently near City Hall Mrt which makes it so accessible and close to places where we can go before and after the salon. Very happy and satisfied with the results.

Always a good hair day here

My hair is always in good hands under Kelvin. I like his stylish chic hair cuts and my hair color is always spot on. He's professional in the way that he is always attentive to hear out new ideas and manage to craft out the look. He gives good hair care advise on how to maintain my hair and i do enjoy visiting the salon because the staff are always friendly and warm. The location is good for me, away from the hustle bustle to unwind and yet near enough for happy hour after my haircut! Overall i would recommend Kelvin because besides having a great hair sense, he's also a great guy to chat with which makes my salon time passes by quickly!

Always a great experience

Kelvin has been my hairstylist for more than 10 years. When you find the right hairstylist/barber, stick to him, and you won't have to worry about hair anymore. I went for haircuts at salon after salon before I found Kelvin. Went back a 2nd time, 3rd time, and the rest is history. Always consistent and knows what is in style, or the best cut that suits your face type. So if you gain or lose weight, he will cut accordingly that fits best. Haha. Great guy whom you can share your personal life stories with, and he has his own refreshing view to any issue you may have. I say this at risk of him becoming fully booked: Stop searching and try him out.

Hair colouring and hair cut

Chanced upon this salon while walking around. Kelvin gave really good hairstyling tips. The haircut was great! Recommended to my girlfriend and now she's loving the hair cut and hair colouring done at Caleo.
