HAF Salon @ Far East Plaza

Where To Find Them

What we want to design at HAF is not just an instagrammable photo for a day, but a hairstyle that brings joy whenever you look in the mirror. For that, we need your input to make the hairstyle uniquely yours. Will you give us a chance to partner and create that hairstyle with you?

Selyn & Qiu
Founders of HAF Salon

Overview

With swanky malls like ION Orchard, Orchard Central and Mandarin Gallery, Far East Plaza isn't the first place most people think of for a pampering hair service in Orchard.

Yet it is right in drabby, run-down malls like this where we found a new gem HAF Salon.

As chaotic as the walk through Far East Plaza may be, our heart danced in delight the moment we walked into HAF Salon. The baby teal walls along with the minimalistic industrial flooring littered with lush greenery got us whipping out our phones to take a photo immediately.

Yep, this would make for a good addition to our Instagram feed.

Gorgeous decor aside, HAF Salon is home to two of our favourite local stylists: Selyn and Qiu - previously from one of Beauty Undercover's most popular Korean hair salons!

If you've always loved Korean curls but am hesitant due to language barriers, Qiu is the perm specialist you MUST try. Having permed hair for thousands of women over the years, she has a very strong sense of aesthetics and will customize the curls exactly to how you like it.

First timing perming? Qiu will design natural waves that looks absolutely natural so that you can get used to managing your new curls without much hassle.

Ready for something more the second or third time? She may then recommend romantic curls that can last for 6 months and above - if and when you're ready.

Selyn, on the other hand, is a colour meister.

Whether you're thinking about work-friendly balayage or brighter unicorn, milky rose or even paddlepop colours, she'll deliver that and more - with minimal damage.

As much as those are specialties that customers travel all the way from Jurong and Changi for, you won't hear both Selyn and Qiu pushing you to do these hair services simply because they're good at it.

Even if you're in for just a haircut, they'll do a consultation to decide on the hair design before proceeding with the cut - all with zero hardselling or even upselling for more colours or treatments. In fact, both Selyn and Qiu are on the quiet side, so you won't even have to worry about making small-talk with them. Just relax in your seat and walk out the salon refreshed and happy with a new hairstyle!

It is this commitment towards giving customers a pressure-free experience and including them in the consultation that they call a Better HAF. Believing that customers are long-term partners and not just a transaction, Selyn and Qiu founded HAF to be an affordable comfortable haven where customers can come by, chill and relax without feeling mentally or financially burdened. Every customer is allocated sufficient time and attention as the stylists here make the effort to space out the appointments - giving the utmost best service possible. Here, they also make sure they use top quality hair products such as MUCOTA and K-Gloss so that they deliver the results that customers are looking for. It is these small details that make many of their customers go back to them time and time again... even recommending their friends and family here.

While prices aren't the lowest in Far East Plaza, the hairstyles here are known to last much longer thanks to superior haircuts and extra consideration to reduce damage. With genuine service and instagrammable hairstyles that lasts, we think that HAF Salon offers incredible value for people looking for their forever stylists.

Overall, a hidden gem in Far East Plaza we'd highly recommend!

Great salon for blonde hair!

Review for Selyn Poh

I just moved to Singapore in sept and have been a little anxious about finding a new stylist and hoping all would go well once I did have someone new do my hair. Especially blonde! I was lucky enough to have Haf Salon referred to me by a new colleague here. I checked out their website and social media and felt confident this salon was a solid choice. I was booked with Selyn, who was super sweet, friendly, professional and totally talented with skills. I got my blondes perfect! Exactly what I was envisioning. I don’t think they’ve ever been better. The salon itself was beautiful and clean. The atmosphere was very positive. My 13 year old daughter also got her hair cut at the same time and was treated so well and her hair was done beautifully. I feel very grateful to have found this salon, I will definitely be back and I highly recommend it to anyone considering this salon. (Review not yet verified)

Revitalizing RC2 treatment

Review for Qiu Wong

My 3rd time with Qiu. Soft flowy hair with bounce and volume can be yours. This treatment has a few steps to really kick in the moisture and nourishment from within. Smells divine. Hair is left shiny and bouncy, not heavy. The perm and cut here is top notch too. Looking forward to highlight my hair once it settles down. I must say all the treatments are on point here. Solid service. If you are looking for a salon u can trust, look no further. (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

Another fantastic visit at Haf

Review for Qiu Wong

My second visit to Haf! Qiu takes the time to observe where needs help, and gives really sound advice. She takes time to tousle hair into perfect perfection. Literally. Her deft hands knows where to place the rods for the exact lift and placement of curl. Only an expert can do that. My limp locks suddenly behave. And the magic lives on cos it still looks good like months later. That’s the amazing part. I trust my hair in her hands. Thank you Qiu (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

My All Time Fav Stylist QIU

Review for Qiu Wong

I go to QIU for all of my hair needs.  She is great at color, cuts, perm and listening.  You name it, she rocks at it!  She is consistently learning new trends and helping apply them to my hair.  Qiu is easy to talk to and she understands what I am trying to request even if I lack the lingo to ask for it!  I also love the fact that she is willing to be realistic for what I am asking to be done, with what the end result will be and doing things to meet some crazy trend I find on pinterest.

Only Trust Qiu With My Hair

Review for Qiu Wong

QIU is simply amazing! I trust her to listen to my ideas for my hair and also trust her judgment on what will work/look the best. She has done wave perm for me, given me highlights, done the ombre coloring (when that was in!), colored my hair darker, styled my hair for weddings and most recently changed up my style by giving me bangs. Visiting her even for a trim is always a pleasant experience :) I honestly can't say enough good things! (Review not yet verified)

Wonderful scalp treatment and haircut with Qiu

Review for Qiu Wong

Long overdue review here! I like the relaxing ambience there. I feel it’s private and I get to feel comfortable with who I am! Qiu deftly refreshed my perm and gave me curtain bangs that freshened me up totally. She is very meticulous, and checks every angle. I know I’m in good hands. I’m balding quite badly near my forehead and crown, but Qiu manages to inject life and vitality to my hair with just a cut at the right places. Will look for her for my subsequent treatments n colour! Might bring my girl to cut her hair too when she wants to transform her long hair to a bob. (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE

Review for Qiu Wong

I recently had a fantastic experience at Haf hair salon, Due to this current pandemic I haven’t been feeling the best I decided to make a big change in my hair style by chopping 6 inches off the bottom. I was very nervous but qiu was very sweet and encouraging. Not to mention her pure talent in the hair cutting and styling. I was so impressed with the outcome! I step out of the salon feeling fresh and confident again! Would be sure to come back to the beautiful salon to see qiu again! 10/10 experience, would definitely recommend! (Review not yet verified)

Review For Qiu

Review for Qiu Wong

I started seeing QIU for my hair since last year. When I came to her my hair was really damage from bleaching. It was also not very flattering now that I look back at the pics... At the time I thought it was great. After QIU worked her magic on it, my hair has never been so healthy, beautiful and lively! Her sense of color/style so amazing and I have been bragging on her ever since. She is also a wonderful person to talk to so that is a bonus! I highly recommend QIU and HAF salon. She knows what she is doing (Review not yet verified)

Natural and bouncy hair

Came to know Haf Salon through Beauty Undercover and thought of trying it out after reading multiple good reviews. My stylist, Selyn, has been patiently and professionally providing me with advice when i came to the shop with a 'i don't have any idea what i should do with my messy lifeless locks but i just want natural & easy to manage hair'. Throughout the session, it was enjoyable and the salon is really clean, well-maintained and spacious. Eventually, with Selyn's advice, i cut my locks short, did less intrusive soft rebond and got my ends permed, the end result was natural and bouncy. Highly recommended. (Review not yet verified)

First visit at HAF

Review for Qiu Wong

It was my first time being there after reading good reviews. The hair stylist is nice and professional. And more importantly, she wants the best hair style for me instead of just making money. I was originally gonna do a hair cut and wave perm. But she suggested I should wait for a month for the hair to grow on my back, so that the hair perm would look more naturally from the back view. Some places might just do the perm on my front hair to make the money. I heed her advice and only did a haircut which turn out really well! I'm thankful to have someone who truly care of my hair. I would really recommend this place to anyone else! (Review not yet verified)

Chic + Comfortable!

Review for Qiu Wong

I usually go into salons with a lot of apprehension, nerves, and a little bit of anxiety. I went into HAF with these feelings, but after about 5 minutes in there, meeting my stylist Qiu, , I was instantly relaxed. Maybe it was the hair wash, maybe it was the environment, maybe it was that everyone on staff clearly knows their stuff, I'm not sure. But it was such a great experience. Qiu first took off a little bit and then took off more, which I APPRECIATED SO MUCH! She cut a few inches as we talked about and then, she cut more. After a traumatic experience of cutting too much, she got a LOT of brownie points with me for that. She also told me about all the products she was using on my hair, why them, and the good they do for my hair. When she was done, my hair looked BRAND NEW. There's something about a GREAT hair cut that makes you feel like a new woman, and I think that's the best way to describe how I felt when I left. HAF salon is my place from here on (Review not yet verified)

Am so glad that I found a hairstylist that understood my needs. The haircut was skilfully done, the perm was gentle and the hair treatment immaculate. I enjoyed the ‘bounce’ in my hair and the refreshing look. Great after service tips on hair care too that did not involve pushing of products. (Review not yet verified)
