Overview

Stay or work around River Valley? 

Don't miss Japanese Hair Salon HaLu!

One of the most value-for-money Japanese salon chains in Singapore, HaLu offers great hair services for a low price. You won't experience your stylist two-timing or even three-timing you as each stylist is allocated to one customer on a one-to-one basis. Instead, he will be in charge of your hair service from start to finish - from hair wash to haircut and colour, your hairstylist will handle your hair - no hair assistants!

We usually expect this level of exclusive service, together with the beautiful decor and ambience, to cost a lot more than in other salons. But in HaLu, prices are kept low to make Japanese hair service available and accessible to more Singaporeans

Decor and price are of course not the only thing we look forward to in HaLu. Daisuke has been in Singapore for a number of years and has been really popular for both his care perm, sincere service, great haircuts and natural colours.

With a good mix of decor, price and skill, HaLu @ River Valley is an easy salon for us to recommend for working professionals looking for a great haircut, colour and straightening services!

For those who enjoy the bustling nightlife and abundant eateries on Mohamed Sultan Rd, HaLu RV is a no-brainer with its great Japanese service at pocket-friendly prices!

Review for Misaki

The salon is cozy, relaxing and approximately 5mins walk from Fort Canning MRT (Downtown Line). Misaki was very professional and courteous. She listened to me attentively while I showed her some photos of my desired haircut. Although she doesn't speak fluent English, I am grateful that she took her time and tried her very best to communicate with me. Misaki shared with me on hair treatment services and she was not pushy at all - I chose Mucota Treatment. The treatment and hair wash was relaxing and it took around 30-40 mins. Misaki showed me how to blow dry my hair so that it can address my slight hair thinning / visible parting concern. She made it looked extremely easy and effortless, which gives me no reason not to do it at home. It is fascinating to watch Misaki work. Her focus and efficiency in trimming my hair amazed me - she is undoubtedly skillful and armed with years of experience. The haircut took a mere 15mins. Misaki remembered those photos that I showed her earlier and taught me how to style my hair with a curling iron. Again, the methods were so simple and easy to understand. I was very pleased with how the haircut turned out and it was also reflected in Misaki eyes on how proud she is with her work. It is 5 days after the haircut and I managed to recreate the hairstyle by following the steps that Misaki has shared with me. This is by far the best haircut I had in a long time, in terms of the similarity of the haircut (and recreating it by myself) to the hairstyle photo that I desire as well as the most easy to maintain haircut. Thank you so much Misaki :)

First experience in dyeing hair with Eri

Eri was so sweet, nice, friendly and considerate!! She first gave some recommendations for a hair colour and I followed her recc and got ash brown w/o bleaching!! She gave me free drinks and sweets and a pillow to rest my arm on while doing my hair!! The ash brown I got was pretty nice and it was a pleasant experience with her!! Highly reccomended!!! Thank you beautyundercover and bump hair design @ rv!!!

Very Satisfied Customer

Like the clean, bright and neat atmosphere. The services from the staff are excellent and and that you hardly need to wait. My appointment time is 99% on the dot. The best thing I like is attention given by the stylist is 100% - from rinsing, colouring, cutting hair and serving tea is done by one person.

Very comfortable

I visited there to get a cut and a color. Stylist Eri lent her ear to my requests and kindly advised me how effect each color level. I felt comfortable with her service. Assistant guy just brought a cup of coffee to me during coloring but his smile also made me comfortable. Their price is reasonable for Japanese hair salon. I am satisfied with this salon.

Cozy atmosphere

Konomi always spends ample time to look after my dry hair and suggests what could be the best option before she really starts the service, which is professional and empathic. I started to come to BUMP several years back because colleague recommended. Much to my surprise, their price is very reasonable for Japanese hair stylists. The product on sale at BUMP is very good as well, I've bought shampoo and conditioner once ( but unfortunately pricey. still worth a try)

Dissatisfied and dissapointed experience @ Bump By Avanta River Valley

Had an appointment last Sunday 3rd June 2018 with the intention to color my hair. Looking at the reviews made me confident and exited to engange their services. All was okay except that, the color i have in mind was not obtained. I end up leaving the salon looking the same except for a trim and color applied wasnt fantastic nor matches to the slightest as i wanted. I paid 179sgd after was given a 20% but feeling dissappointed and dissatisfied. He, being the professional hairdresser can at least advice me beforehandedly that the color i wanted is not achieveable considered the products their salon use. Not only language is a barrier, he did not ensure that me as a patron is pleased with the services he rendered. Nor did he took the initiative to help me get what i wanted even after the wash, he knew the color he did, did not resemble to the slightesest what i had in mind with a picture i brought along and showed. He propsed to highlight but i need to fork out another 140sgd and come back at 7pm, as he has appointments with another. I came at 10.20am my session ended at 12.20noon and yet suggested me to return at 7pm. Well, how can one possibily at ease and earn the earnings from one dissatisfied client and feel nothing over it. Shabby work done and yet cant be bothered to resolve. If i knew this will happen, i would rather fork out an extra 50+sgd from the 179sgd i paid to return to kimage to get my hair color done. Kimage had achieved that same color during my last visit to their salon but price was 230sgd and due to wanting to save a little and having the notion of wanting to give another salon a try, cost me unhappiness and disheartened. A lessen well learned. No matter how great the ambience is, how ppl rave about Bump, am so not coming back. No effectiveness nor value.

Hi Team Bump, I really appreciate the reply as it showed sense of responsibility and professionalism. Its commendable. Yes please, do re-color my hair and mend this sadden heart. Am free to come by at 6.40pm on either one of the days next week, Monday 11.06 or Tuesday 12.06.2018. Let me know your availability. Appreciate if Rei is able to assist in confirming this appointment. Thank you!

We checked with the stylist Daisuke and he is very apologetic for the miscommunication during the consultation.

To show his sincere apologies, he would like to redo your hair free of charge.

Would you pls give us another chance?

Hope to hear a favourable reply from you soon.

Disappointment

The review came late. I paid additional to get my hair done by Daisuke but ended up with disappointment. I visited the salon on 20 Mar 18, 29 Mar 18 and 6 Apr 18 to have my hair cut, colour and permed and touch up upon dissatisfied results. The end result was very different from the picture that was shown Daisuke. The perm that I wanted was to start from the mid of my ears. But after a single wash, it only appear at the ends, despite returning to the salon to redo. The colour that I wanted was balayage with a combination of caramel, chestnut and chocolate. It ended up with "ombre" as the hair colour was not even, "chopping off" from my hair that was grown out from my previous colouring. Similarly, despite the Touch up, it didn't really improve. Please note I do not have any budget for doing up my hair. I paid for a Base colour. In the end with colouring and perm done twice within a short time frame, I was left with very dry hair after spending more than $500.

Great service and treatment!

My hair was very dry and brittle as I did bleaching and perm at elsewhere before. Saw raves about the tokio inkarami treatment and decided to give it a try at BumpRV. Konomi was my hairstylist and she's really cute and friendly. The shampooing, head massage, treatment procedure and blow drying were all done by her and i enjoyed it. Although her English is limited but she really try her best to understand me and fret not, there's a friendly Singaporean staff who can help with the translation. I really felt relax when doing the treatment. konomi is very generous with the amount of products slapped onto my hair. she promised that my hair will be super moisture after the treatment. Indeed, 2 weeks have passed and my hair is still soft and no tangles when I comb my hair. highly recommend tokio inkarami treatment! When I'm leaving, konomi stood at the door watching me walk down the stairs to say byebye to me.. It's really heartwarming to have such politeness, attention and great service! Will definitely be back..

Highly recommended!

I have been visiting one of my trusted hair salon for years, but have been looking for a change as the price were a little overprice for the colouring services it provided. Fortunately, I finally found one after many bad experiences I faced with other salons I tried! The first thing that made my experience was how the stylist were able to understand my needs quickly, despite our language barrier. I was then impressed by how she calculated the prices for me to show me the total costs before she began to do anything. To me, this was really a great act of service because ALOT of salons nowadays are not transparent about the costs etc. The BEST thing? I have always wanted Ash brown hair that requires no bleaching... and they provided me with that service! The colour was exactly how I wanted even without bleach. Their treatment was great too. They were quite generous with the amount of treatment they used on my hair. Thus my originally dried and frizzy hair felt really soft and supple when I left the store. I didn't spend a bomb but I got a service, hair colour and treatment that exceeded fair beyond my expectations.

Hair color

The one on one service here makes you feel like you are in good hands. Communication is not a problem as they can understand whatever I'm saying in English. Haruka is so nice and friendly.. oh and pretty too! Value for money hair color. No length charge at Bump means no absurd charges just because your hair is a tiny bit on the long side (i can never understand why most salons charge such a wide range of price over just a few cm difference in length, and same effort put in..) Location is fine as it is close to bus stop.. and means no over crowding.

3D hair colour, Cut and additional base colour

The outcome wasn't really what I am expecting. I have requested for the 3D hair colour and was told that I cannot have a base colour and I can only choose 2 highlights. I will have to top up additional $$ to have a base colour.

However, this isn't the case when I went to Adventa the year before. I have requested for 1 base and 2 bright colours - purple and pink. I am able to see the pink but not the purple and the hair stylist insisted. Neither my friends nor myself/husband can see it. I cannot see much of the contrast. To make things worse, the highlighted colours did not last for 1 month. the base colour stayed but the so called pink & purple. I am really upset and disappointed with the outcome and I actually hesitated for months before I decide post my comment.

Amaze-balls

I had my mind set on coloring my hair with a treatment.

There were packages but instead she gave me ala carte and eventually was cheaper. The inkarami hair treatment is really amazing and worth every penny. (THOUGH the products are on the high side for me personally)

She was very courteous.

Though she didnt tell me what she was doing.. abit confuse becos of the language barrier.

That being said, i am verrrrryyy happy with the end result. Just what I wanted! ?

Definately worth the comeback though the location. My stylist is Haruka!

First time @ Bump!

The gist of my review if you don't want to read through the lengthy post.

1. Easy to locate by bus

2. Good prices. (Bleach, colour, cut and treatment for ONLY $168???)

3. Friendly staff and good ambience

4. Amazing hair!

I stumbled upon this salon while browsing through Beauty Undercover. With the great prices and good reviews, I decided to give it a try. Hair is just hair, it will grow back after all.

(Spoiler alert: I am in love with my hair. I wish it will stop growing/grow slower so that I do not have to constantly bleach my roots to maintain this colour.)

Anyway, I made an appointment via Instagram, which they replied to promptly. I made a few enquiries via Facebook and also received speedy replies. I read that the only complain people have is that the salon is hard to locate as it is not near any MRT. However, by bus, it is very easy to locate. I just had to cross the road! Entering the salon, I had a good first impression as the staff were friendly and the salon was beautiful.

My stylist was Sawano Tsuyoshi. He asked about my hair history, recommended a colour for me, walked me through the process, and was patient despite the language barrier. It was a pleasant experience. He was so thorough and patient that I was the one getting sleepy, not him, haha.

The colour exceeded my expectations, the picture does not do it justice! He told me it would be ash, but it turned out a cool, blueish grey. Very happy with my visit!

I highly recommend Bump! :)

Cut + Colour + Treatment

Haruka and So-ne attended to me earlier when I came into Bump for the above services. There was a consultation prior to cutting my hair and choosing the right colour, she wanted to try a light ash for me however, due to certain limitations for work, she then switched to a darker ash which turned out beautifully.

Haruka provided me with a cut and colour catalogue which was sectioned based on the lengths of your hair, making it easier to look for a certain hairstyle. I pointed out the one I liked to her and she improvised from there. So-ne helped to colour, wash and do a treatment for my hair.

Both stylists are professional, friendly and answered all queries. I would love to return for another service! :)
