Bad hair days are common for many curly / wavy haired ladies in humid Singapore. Here at Flamingo, our primary focus is to help customers create an easily maintainable hairstyle so that every day is a good hair day!

Marco
Founder of Flamingo Hair Studio

Overview

Whenever someone asks us where to go to subdue their curly hair AND get a magical salon experience, the first salon that pops into our heads is Flamingo Hair Studio. 

Flamingo Hair Studio isn't like any other hair salon. It is predominantly Japanese, with the decor so pretty, it feels almost like an oasis, a secret Japanese cafe stashed away in the middle of the CBD district with its collection of Japanese comics, hairstyle illustrations and quaint jewellery in different corners of the salon

Our hearts did a little dance whenever it enters the salon. Maybe its the greenery, the natural light or just the space given to its customer, there is a sense of serenity and happiness whenever we come here. If you've been rushing around before arriving at the salon, you’ll find Flamingo a breath of fresh air as the staff serve you with a refreshing cup of lemon water in a comfortable environment that reminds you to breathe.

As pretty as the place is, we’re more interested in its team of authentic Japanese stylists, Ayumi, Tomo and Aki. All of them have over 10 years in the industry. This has led the team to put together everything they have seen and done in Japan to give their customers the magical hair experience customers in Singapore would fall in love with.

To them, this “ideal Japanese hair experience” constitutes a few factors:

1) Easily Maintainable Hairstyle

Your hair may look instagram-worthy the moment you step out of the salon but that’s not enough for the team. The stylists here take the effort to create a hairstyle that is easy to maintain days and weeks after your hair visit, even when you decide to bleach your hair here! 

This is why most of their customers go back to them – their hair makes them look stylish and even kawaii with minimal styling required!

2) In-depth Consultation

The best hairstyle is one that suits customers' lifestyle. The ability to communicate and understand customer hair needs is therefore crucial to create a hairstyle that the customer wants. Other than the team's fluency in English, the stylists have also created a special illustrated hairstyle guide so that customers can better understand what is the best hairstyle for their face shape, hair condition and hair type, leading to more meaningful conversations during the consultation!

3) Good Stylist Skill

All stylists go through a stringent selection process before getting selected and are really talented in several areas. They are all handpicked by founder Ryu who makes sure that their skill are top-notch, particularly in haircuts, straigthening and colour. Here, they take care of your hair from start to finish and feel personally responsible for your hair, a reason why the hair outcomes turn out so well at Flamingo.

4) Customer Comfort with a Personal Touch

Having recognized that time is precious for all their customers, the stylists here take the extra effort to make each customer feel welcome and comfortable by being attentive to their needs and providing a clean, relaxing environment for customers to come to.

All these components come together to form a uniquely memorable hair experience that makes you want to come back again and again. The skill, dedication and sense of style by the Flamingo stylists set the salon apart from others and is possibly why its customer base has grown significantly since it opened a couple of years ago. It may not be as hidden as before but still certainly a must-visit gem among hair salons in Singapore. 

P.S. Flamingo has a second outlet in the heart of Tiong Bahru. This salon is as gorgeous as the first, featuring huge spaces, large mirrors, plants and areas with natural light. Read more about it here!

Professional services from a lovely, friendly hairdresser Tomo!

Review for Tomo

I got natural rebonding and a cut by Tomo. She's a lovely, friendly and professional hairdresser. She understands customers' needs/requirements well and knows trends very well. She's also very friendly so sitting for more than three hours was not boring at all! Other staff members are so nice and professional as well :) I can't recommend Tomo and Flamingo Hair Studio highly enough. (Review not yet verified)

very happy with my haircuts!

Review for Tomo

(male review) This is not my first visit nor my hair cut with Tomo-san. In fact, I've been to Flamingo Hair Studio to get my haircut with Tomo for a long while now. From the moment I first went to Flamingo Hair Studio, Tomo-san understands perfectly well on the style of haircut I want and displays her great skills very well. Tomo-san is also very meticulous and is very attentive to what you, as a customer, want. Not only that, she is also a very friendly person too, who also gives great head massages. Overall, I have been really satisfied with my haircut with Tomo-san at Flamingo Hair Studio. I look forward to my future haircuts with her! (Review not yet verified)

Great experience

Review for Zackey

I prefer Japanese salons as their services are excellent and they are fast and precise. Most also have the same stylish attend to you from beginning to end (including hair wash) without splitting their time with another customer and here was no exception. I did a cut, color and treatment with Zackey and though his english was not very fluent, he was very attentive and make effort to explain every step of each stage to me. He would also check with me after every stage to make sure he addressed any concerns I have. He also taught me some home styling tips that was easy to create after I showed him some of the looks I wanted. The whole thing took 2 hours including consultation, Zackey styling my hair and imparting home tips to me, which at other salons would usually take up to 3.5 hours. Overall was a great experience!

Great Experience at Hair Flamingo

Review for Tomo

Hair Flamingo gives a homely feel to me unlike the typical chain of hair salons. Tomo is always cheerful and provides her most honest opinion on the hair request I have. She never says no but rather provide an alternative which can be better than my initial request. Always a great experience. (Review not yet verified)

Review for Tetsuya

カット、カラー、ときどき縮毛矯を施術してもらっています。毛量も多く広がってしまう髪質ですが、私の希望をしっかり叶えつつスタイリングしやすいようにカットしてくださいます。シャンプーもとても丁寧で、施術後の気になるツンとした匂いが残らないないのも気に入っています。 Translated: Thank you to Mr. Tetsuya who is always taking care of me. I have a cut, a color, and sometimes a hair straightening treatment. I have a lot of hair and it gets messy easily. What I wanted was a haircut to make it easy for me to style my hair and he made it happen. The shampoo was also very gentle, and I like the fact that it doesn't leave a pungent odor after the treatment. (Review not yet verified)

Good experience and haircut by Tomo

Review for Tomo

I first learnt about flamingo hair salon online after researching on so many salons. Decided to book an appointment with Tomo and that was the best decision ever! I had permed hair and my hair was in a very bad condition, making it so hard to manage. When I told Tomo that I wanted something easy to maintain and to cut shorter, she was so patient in hearing my needs and recommended styles that could suit me. I was so impressed by her service and attitude! I have been going back to Tomo ever since to cut and maintain my hair :) my hair is in a much better condition now than before. Tomo is also very bubbly and friendly! Enjoyed my experience at flamingo (Review not yet verified)

Friendly & Fresh - best hair salon in the CBD area

Review for Tomo

I'm so glad that Hair Flamingo is close to my office - they're a lifesaver! I've been there multiple times to get a hairstyle or hair treatment just before dinners or events, as well as a haircut just yesterday. The team is super friendly & professional - and I always feel so relaxed when I'm there. They always provide the best recommendations on looking our best - super tailored to our own hair texture. It's not easy as I have thick hair that's rebonded - and not a lot of salons know what to do with it. I always walk out fresh & confident thanks to the Hair Flamingo team :) Will be back again soon of course! (Review not yet verified)
