A lot of people grow up hating their natural curls because they've never been taught how to manage their curls easily. By sharing some techniques and ways I have discovered during my training as a hairdresser, I hope to show you how your natural curls can be beautiful too!

Annie Tay
Founder

Overview

A common thing to be asked as someone with curly hair is “Why don't you rebond your hair?”

What might seem like a casual question can be quite hurtful to someone who is born with naturally curly hair. There is a sense that their hair is not good enough, that somehow curly hair is deficient compared to straight hair in hot and humid Singapore, where people sporting natural curls are more a minority.

Having curly hair herself, local Singaporean stylist Annie is one of the very few stylists who is able to understand the struggles of managing and loving curly hair.

In fact, she too has gone through a phase of hating her curly hair because of how hard it is to manage it. Her view on curly hair changed only after living and staying in London for a few years. Seeing how the English ladies are proud of their natural hair and embrace them as how they were, she was determined to bring the positive energy back to Singapore... and eventually, that's how Ann's Studio is born!

Located in the slightly run-down Adelphi, Ann's Studio isn't the most luxurious hair salon out there. But for those of you with natural curls, Ann's Studio will feel like home.

We say that not just because of the simple baby blue decor that made us feel so comfy, the cute vintage fridge right at the door or even the little piece of heaven as you look out the window during the hair wash.

We love Annie because of the connection she shares with those of us who are still struggling to accept our hair for what it is.

Those who love their natural curls can weave a sigh of relief as you'll never hear Annie ask you to rebond your hair straight off the bat. Annie makes sure to remind her curly-haired customers that those curls are what made them who they are and then takes the initiative to discuss about what your dream hair looks like. She will then ask you about your preferences, lifestyle and what you do on a daily basis to manage your hair before suggesting the right hair service suitable for you.

This means that you do not necessarily have to go for straightening services if you don't feel like it; a single haircut from her can make you look and feel like a million bucks!

Be prepared for friends and family giving you tons of compliments on your new haircut as Annie's haircutting skills, honed through decades of experience studying and working in Toni & Guy UK, Toni&Guy Singapore as well as many top salons in Singapore, can sculpt your curly hair to give it the celeb-worthy sheen.

Annie doesn't just stop there though. We all know how hair always looks better at the salon, so Annie always goes one step further to teach you how to style your hair quickly with appropriate homecare so that it still looks good at home.

As much as she loves natural curls, we love how Annie doesn't judge when you ask for hair services that manage your curls more permanently. Having gone through the phase herself, Annie too has mastered the art of keratin treatments as well as rebonding and perming. If you talk to her in private, she will however confess that she prefers Keratin Treatments as it doesn't take away your natural curls and actually defrizzes your hair more and more over time. That is why she has spent a lot of time searching for the right Keratin Treatment before deciding on her current one.

Beyond curl management though, Annie is brilliant with balayage and highlights, even for customers hoping to achieve blonde hair. She is after all one of the few stylists who has actually worked in the UK for more than 3 years. Hence, she understands what balayage and fine highlight techniques REALLY IS to add on to the canvas that blonde customers have worked so hard to achieve. Annie is so good that many expat customers (all the way from Europe, America and even Brazil!) recommend hordes of friends to her, making her clientele very international. 

Add her personal service to the mix and you'll find that her service is definitely among the most value-for-money. You see, Annie does everything from start to finish, from the hair consultation, haircut, hair wash and even colouring and keratin treatment. As she takes care of every single detail along the way, service feels particularly personal here. 

With outstanding skills and a heartfelt desire to help customers manage and love their natural hair, Annie is definitely our favourite stylist to recommend for curly hair in Singapore

P.S. Annie works mostly alone so it can be difficult (and next to impossible) to walk in. So do make an advance appointment before going down to avoid disappointment!

First Curly Cut

Review for Annie Tay

I had my first curly hair cut by Annie and everything about it was fantastic - the method she used (dry cutting), the style she gave me (enhanced volume), sticking to my comfort level (not cutting past what she told me to expect). I am literally never going to another salon or stylist again.

Hair cut with Annie

Review for Annie Tay

Finally found a hairdresser who understands and works around my daughter's very curly hair. It was difficult to find a hairdresser who could cut her hair as everyone seem to have the attitude of 'why so curly, a lot of hair' remark before anything is done. Annie though worked her magic and gave my teen her dream cut. Thanks Annie for those skills!

Finally found a good hairstylist, Annie who can cut Asian women with thick, frizzy, coarse and wavy hair!

Review for Annie Tay

Annie is definitely the best hair stylist in Singapore when it comes to dealing with Asian women with thick, frizzy, coarse and wavy/ curly hair. Second time in my life that I found someone i.e. Annie who managed to cut my naturally wavy hair into something beautiful!! All my time, I have faced scorn from other hairstylists who only think that straight hair is the only beauty standard. When Annie managed to brought out my natural hair curls, I was extremely amazed and even wondered why did I bother to spend $320 on a stupid hair perm for the past 5 years when I have such nice hair waves?!!!

Finally Annie did not hard sell any products which was a plus point for me.
