Here at Focus, you can count on us to fulfill 3 promises. 1: We will always be honest to you. If we are not confident of producing a good result, we will let you know immediately. 2: We will not damage your hair excessively. We use good quality products and would try not to perm and colour your hair in the same day! 3: There will never be hardselling in Focus Hairdressing!

Founder

Overview

Focus Hairdressing would definitely not win any prizes for the most luxurious with its humble decor.

That is why Focus Hairdressing has kept its prices competitive, all while using the highest quality perm, rebonding and treatment products! Other salons may SAY that they use these products but many skip steps here to save product use and keep the cost low. Marcus is however not like that.

A great believer that customers will return if they get good value from his service, Marcus makes sure that his entire team use generous amounts of treatment and product to deliver effective results to his customers. This is a reason why many customers who've tried rebonding and perming at Focus go back time and time again; their results are THAT good. 

As they rebond and perm hair day in and day out, the stylists here are able to manage hair of vastly different and challenging textures. Stylists at other salons may reject perming or rebonding your hair if you've done henna but the stylists here will know what to do to give you the best result EVEN IF you had done henna before.

Look at @shub's blowout perm on her henna hair and you'll know what we mean.

Rebonding and perming isn't the only hair service on the menu there though. People in the know here also rave about the vegan hair colour series Original and Minerals. There are other organic / vegan hair colours out there but O&M is till today the best organic hair colour Agent G has experienced - despite being naturally derived, the colour is well pigmented and stays on for a long time. Most importantly, the hair colour is not drying and does not contain PPD, ammonia or gluten. We followed Agent D on her recent visit to Focus for her first O&M hair colour and she marvelled at how her usually sensitive scalp did not even sting at all during the hair colour! The eventual hair texture was also a lot softer and moisturizing than anticipated, cementing O&M as our favourite vegan hair colour.

We can't find any other salon that offers O&M with such a huge range and at such a competitive price and so, would highly recommend it here.

Overall, a gem of salon that offers great value for effective rebonding and perming services as well as organic hair colour in town!

P.S. Did we also mention that Marcus is AMAZING with haircuts for curly hair?

Comfy & great colouring experience!

Review for Sito

Site explained alot about the colour and styles to me, and gave me advice also on how to keep my hair healthy. Especially since I have poofy dry hair. I liked my colour very much! Dark shade on the outside and lighter shades on the inner sides of both sides of my face. Best thing is the O&M colour has no ammonia, and all the other nasties, meaning it's organic. So it doesn't make my scalp itch or burn, neither does it smell funky. Thank you again 😌 (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

Excellent service and satisfaction result!

Totally enjoyed my 1st hairdo at Focus Hairdressing with senior stylist Amos. Very happy and satisfied with the final result. Amos is patient, attentive and skilful with what he is doing, took time to explain to me the conditions of my hair (dry and frizzy), products recommendations and treatment processes. He did my hair all by himself with no wastage of time in waiting or delaying. He even helped get some snacks as I went there without lunch. He wasn't pushy in selling products and do not show sign of unhappiness even when I didn't want to buy. I felt comfortable with him and will definitely go back again. Thank you Amos, really loving my hair now.

Love the overall experience!

I did a Mucota Algana rebonding treatment here at Focus hairdressing and was attended by the Senior Hair Stylist, Amos. I have always preferred using Mucota brand for my hair rebonding because of its less chemical elements on my hair. The service of Amos and overall experience was really good. He was very attentive to my needs throughout. Will definitely visit again for my next rebonding service.

Perming Service not recommended

Review for Sito

Initially, I was planning to give a good review for it C curl rebonding. However, my hair did not turn out well after my 2nd hair wash. I understand i may not be good in blow drying C curl and my bottom hair not strong enough. But look at the result after washing the my hair in the 2nd day... Yes the curl is still there but very messy. When i made an appointment to return to amend the C curl. The hairdresser turn me down in the end. I can see her unwillingness to do for me. She try to remain clam but her tone sound frustrated. She commented " I cant understand why u think your curl got issue. It not like totally straight and need to re-perm... Why do u care how others think about your hair ?" I feel she can have just amend as per my request since the curl it only 2 inches. Even if damage, won't cost much. She could say it nicely to consider rebond even if dont like too straight. Honestly, I don't feel good in writing bad comments but i am angry. In conclusion I love to come back for their rebonding but their perming service and service recovery were disappointing.

Dear Isabel,

Thank you for visiting Focus Hairdressing. We are sorry that the experience was not up to expectation.

From what we understand, there seems to be quite a bit of miscommunication. When your hair was checked during the return visit, we found that the C curls were actually done well. We understand however that C curls can be hard to manage; it requires the wearer to blowdry hair and apply some stying product to keep the curls looking that way. As she was worried that you may not be able to do so,  Sito suggested to straighten the curls. She however remembered you mentioning that you didn't want completely straight hair, so it made her hesitate; she wasn't sure which is best for you. 

Sito wasn't able to put the conflicting thoughts across as clearly as she could and for that we would like to apologize.

To show our sincere apologies, could we offer to help with straightening the hair ends?

Do give us a call or DM us on IG to arrange for it!

Warm regards,

Team Focus Hairdressing
