Bump Hair Design @ The Rochester Buona Vista (Closed)

Where To Find Them

Overview

We used to think that Affordable Price, Vibrant Colours, Great Japanese Service are like an impossible trinity. If you want Vibrant Colours and Great Japanese Service, you have to pay a high price. If you want Great Japanese Service and Affordable Price, you are unlikely to get beautiful vibrant colours.

Then comes Bump Hair Design at Rochester - a gorgeous Japanese hair salon that aims to give great service and great skill at prices that do not break the bank.

While the chill ambience is a huge draw, the major attraction here is still its stylists. The anchor stylist here is Mayu, a beautiful and highly skilled Japanese stylist who brought with her a new hairdressing philosophy from Japan: Size Balance Control. This philosophy by renowned Japanese stylist Masao Hiratsuka suggests that a specific type of haircut, colour and style can actually enhance your overall body shape and help you achieve the vibe you're looking for.

Mayu has since trained all stylists here in the concept, allowing them to create a holistic style that doesn't just looks good, it flatters their overall style.

Skill aside, the stylists at Bump offers the same top-notch service you would expect from Japanese stylists. You won't experience your stylists two-timing or even three-timing you as each stylist is allocated to one customer on a one-to-one basis. Instead, they will be in charge of your hair service from start to finish - from hair wash to haircut and colour.

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 Bump, prices are kept low to make Japanese hair service available and accessible to more Singaporeans.

This is especially true for their hair colours! Prices start from $95 for all hair lengths, making the hair colours here particularly value-for-money.

Definitely one of our favourite hair salons in the West!

Very unfortunately, this salon has closed :(

You can however look for its sister salon with its same great service and skill at River Valley here: https://www.beautyundercover.sg/hair/bump-hair-design-river-valley

Ash Brown Colour No Bleach

Review for Misaki

Great experience with Misaki. She is really lovely and bubbly to talk to :") I speak abit of Japanese and interacted with her throughout the session. Overall, it was a comfortable session with her, just like speaking to a friend. In terms of hair colour, I was quite satisfied with it. As I have dyed my hair black 6 months ago, I wasn't expecting to achieve my favourite light ash brown colour. But it actually turned out great! (For those of you who want to dye your hair again after dyeing it black, do check if the black dye has faded. For me I washed it everyday so the hair dye pretty much faded during my visit to Bump). Misaki was also attentive to my needs. Overall, I'm quite satisfied and will definitely recommend it to my friends.

Not a great cut...

Assigned to Seiji. The main perk is that the salon ambience is really nice. I asked for a bob, which ended up being way shorter than I wanted, and he gave a rather helmet-looking cut. Which would have been fine if there weren't strands of long hair still coming out under the shorter one. Fringe was not well cut either - a there's a mid-length layer from my old fringe that's lying somewhere between the shorter fringe and longer ends that just looks weird. Think I need to go for another cut to solve these issues. Definitely won't be returning again when my hair (finally) grows out.

Dear Mich,

Thank you for visiting Bump @ Rochester. 

We are sorry to hear that the haircut was not up to expectations and would really like to rectify the haircut for you.

Could we offer you a recut, either by Seiji or our Salon Manager Misaki?

Hair dye not covering white hair

Review for Misaki

This was my 1st time trying out this hair salon after seeing some good reviews that their hair colour service was good. I had gone to a number of good Japanese hair salon and thought this was also a good try. When I entered there was no drink ie water or tea offered, which to me was still acceptable. I had Misaki the hair stylist. I opted for normal brown hair colour without bleach and opted for tokio inkarami treatment. The hair dye was done pretty fast and at first I thought the hair treatment service was good. However, after leaving the salon I realised that quite a number of my white hair wasn’t dyed at all and it was sticking like a sore thumb. I had wanted to go back to enquire but felt that their service wasn’t good enough for me to feel comfortable to do so. It is impossible that she didn’t see these white hair sticking out. I believe that dyeing white hair will be something that the hair stylist would naturally try to focus on and it’s quite a given when you opt for hair colour but I am disappointed and will probably never come back. I will stick to my usual Japanese hair salon. :(

Dear Lynnett,
Thank you for visiting Bump @ Rochester. We're sorry to hear that the hair colour did not meet your expectations. We checked what happened with Misaki and from what we understand, Misaki chose a Warm Brown that she believes best fits your skin tone. That hair colour formula was however not ideal for grey hair coverage as she did not believe the grey hairs to be obvious.
She is very sorry that the eventual hairstyle did not turn out as well as you expect and would therefore like to offer you a complimentary hair colour to express her sincere apologies. Would this be something you would like to take up?
Once again we are very sorry and hope to have the chance to serve you again.

Warm regards,
Team Bump Rochester

Professional service, engaging experience.

My hair was absolutely taken care of. Firstly, there was understanding of my hair type and Mayu gave me advice to which treatment to pursue. No hardselling of the more expensive treatments and recommended a treatment that was appropriate for my hair. Despite it being the last booking for the day and agreeing that there was only time for a hair treatment she took her time to give my hair a nice trim - didn't feel pressured at all. Moreover, the session didn't feel awkward. Mayu was friendly to converse with and give me 'space' as well. The hair treatment currently feels really good and soft and as flowy as I had hoped; from previously damaged hair from swimming . Hair was trimmed appropriately. Steamed towel during the treatment was shiok.

Fantastic Professional Stylist

Perfect! Attempted a ‘huge chop’ on a whim with my shoulder length hair... the hairstyle is trendy and stylish enough to surprise! I.m extremely pleased with my hairstyle and received multiple compliments from friends, even people I met. Will definitely recommend to my contacts, in fact my daughter and a friend have experienced the good services from the stylists at this salon.

Mayu is the only best

I have been with Many when she first started in Singapore. She is the best hairdresser I have ever came across. Always can deliver what I saw in Pinterest and turn it to be my style as well! Cannot speak highly of her skill, personality and fashion sense!

Great hair styling experience with Misaki!

I really liked the dedicated attention by Misaki from start to end, and the entire experience was calm and relaxing. The whole process of colouring, treatment and styling was done in 2hrs. I wanted a warm brown hair colour to complement my complexion and Misaki recommended a beautiful purple garnet brown for me that was natural yet stunning! I also liked how Milbon treatment softened and smoothened out my hair. Love the colour and the look of my new style :D will definitely be back at Bump again.

Wonderful haircut and color by friendly and lovely stylist Mayu

I've been going to Bump Rochester for a year. My stylist, Mayu, is very friendly and professional. She will give her suggestions to the hair style/color that I want and modify it to suit my face shape/skin tone. She also shared with me little tips and tricks for styling my hair everyday and I'm always satisfied after each visit!

An indecisive customer

As you can see from the title, I’m truly an indecisive client. From my nail colour to my hair style, I don’t really know what I want to do with it. I remember the first time coming in, I knew I want a perm that’s aLl ... but no idea what length I want it, what kind of look I want. I mean I have some photos I like but it’s seriously, all over the place. My stylist- Mayu, heard my concerns and guide me along. Letting me know what would suit me and how should I go about there after. After that experience, I always come in and just entrust my mane to her. Today I’m back with “ I need a hair cut” and everything else is up to her.

Hair colour maestro

I have been coming to see Mayu now for a couple of months now and she does such a fantastic job with my hair colour. She knows what will work and even knows what to do so that when it starts to fade, it doesn’t look brass etc. ?

Wonderful experience with the salon

Searching through beautyundercover for salon located in the west area and get to know bump. Hence, decided to book an appointment with the salon after reading so many good review. Did it through WhatsApp so its very convenient. Indeed, the experience was very good. Went there for rebonding and perm. I had Mayu as my stylist and she was very attentive in getting to know the style that I want. In the end, she decided to go for rebonding and random c curl at the end of my hair. The end result was very good and I love it alot! It looks very natural and definitely the type of natural perm that I looking for. Mayu is also very friendly and constantly making sure that I'm comfortable through the whole process. The salon is located at Rochester mall, which is just 5 mins walk from buona vista mrt. Would recommend to book an appointment in advance as it was crowded when I went last Sunday.

Great Rescue

Had a balayage done with ash brown but the effect was bad, nothing near what I wanted. Went to BUMP and Sone assisted to rescue my hair within 2hours as compared to me having sat 5hours to do a bayalage. Appreciate Sone’s professionalism and insightful comments & suggestions. Overall, the place was also pleasant and easy to find. Would recommend!
