Overview

Many of us have eaten Bird's Nest at one point or another but have you ever wondered how it is like to have Bird's Nest used on your hair as a hair treatment? 

You can now try it out for yourself at one of Singapore's most established Japanese salons: Hair Salon Tokyo Michaela!

There's lots to love about the salon; from its convenient location opposite Clarke Quay MRT to comfy spacious seats and of course, the highlight at its newly renovated salon: the instagrammable angel mural.

Yep, we couldn't help but take a photo here ourselves!

As pretty as the new place is, decor isn't the only reason why we're here.

Many hair salons in Singapore, whether Japanese or otherwise, bring in only a narrow range of hair treatments that are already available at most other salons.

Michaela, on the other hand, offers one of the widest range of hair treatments we've seen in Singapore! You see, Michaela isn't just a typical hair salon.

Michaela Japanese Hair Salon is actually the only Japanese hair salon in Singapore that is owned by a Japanese cosmetics company, MT Cosmetics. This company produces and distributes brands such as MT Metatron that uses medical-grade DMAE and Camosine. MT Metatron is so effective, it is highly demanded in beauty clinics and aesthetic salons in japan.  You can check it out too at Isetan Singapore as they have a cosmetics counter right there!

MT Cosmetics doesn't just do R&D into facial products; they have incorporated some of these innovative new ingredients in their premium haircare products as well as professional hair treatments. A good example is the signature Michaela hair treatment which includes sugar acids extracted from swallow bird’s nest and naturally occurring amino acids from watermelon rinds. The ingredients are not just exotic, it makes your hair feel so silky soft for weeks!

We haven't even talked about Tsuya Tsuya Hair Treatment and the many other exclusive hair treatments that have helped Michaela win Best Hair Treatments in Her World Beauty Awards for 2019 and 2020. 

And that's not the only one. Thanks to strong innovation from their parent company, Michaela is able to introduce new hair treatments every few months. The latest one that customers are raving about is the Sara Sara Anti-Frizz Hair Treatment.  Customers who've given it a go love how it is SO SUCCESSFUL at removing frizz that it actually replace their regular rebonding. 

As much as their treatments remains as the key attraction for us, its all-Japanese stylist team is nothing to sneeze at. All of them have had extensive experience working in top salons in Japan. The team is helmed by the very popular, good-looking and charming Japanese stylist Kenta Nagatsuka. 9 out of 10 customers who have tried his service return because of his haircut and perm are so pretty yet easy to maintain and because his service is SO good, you've got to try it to understand.

And then there is Director stylist Koji Endo, who has worked in Singapore for the past 5 years, Shanghai the 3 years before that and Japan for 13 years. His haircutting skill is unparalleled thanks to his excellent haircut technique that allow him to control volume (whether volume up or volume down) for customers who find their hair hard to manage.

Finally there is Aya who has served the highest echelon in Japan having worked 10 years in exclusive neighbourhoods in Tokyo. Other than her exquisite service, Aya is also awesome with hairstyling, particularly hair arrangements that go well with kimono!

Add the reasonable pricing Michaela charges to the excellent stylist team, exclusive hair treatments, omotenashi service and you've got a Japanese hair salon you've got to try!

P.S. The stylists here are very generous with giving complimentary samples of Michaela Pharmatica haircare products and MT Metatron cosmetics products! So do ask them for it especially if you have any haircare / scalp care issues.

Review for Aya

I found their salon online while googling for various hair services that will help smoothen my frizzy hair. I have fine hair and volume is not fantastic, so i cannot do rebonding or any that will result with flat looking hair. I decided to try the mochi mochi treatment, after reading it on the salon's website, and proceeded to book my appointment. Also thinking that I may feel more comfortable with a female stylist, I booked to do the treatment with Ms Aya. Upon arrival at the salon, I was warmly greeted by the receptionist Ms Aisha and later ushered to my seat, where Ms Aya was waiting for me. She patiently listened to my hair woe and suggested me to do the Sara Sara treatment instead, as she explained that it is more suitable for what I was concerned with. Throughout the treatment process, Ms Aya explained what is being done. I felt very comfortable. The salon is also thoughtful, offering a drinks menu, boxes to place my earrings/spectacles and even have a big cushion on my lap, so that my arms are comfortably placed while scrolling my phone or reading the magazine. At the end, Ms Aya also shared about tips on how to blow-dry my hair and application of hair product. I left the salon feeling happy. Today is the 3rd day after the salon visit. I washed my hair yesterday and so far, even when it rained today, my hair looks so much better than before. Frizz has reduced by 90% ! No puffy frizzy hair ! (Review not yet verified)

Comfortable experience without any hard selling

Review for Koji Endo

Chanced about Michaela salon and decided to give it a try. Totally didn’t regret my decision as this is the first time I was able to enjoy my hair treatment without anyone trying to hard sell any hair packages to me. I will definitely be back here for another hair treatment and will strongly recommend anyone to come here for the great service! (Review not yet verified)

Always been pleasant experience

Review for Kenta

My experience at Michaela have always been a pleasant one. Kenta is both professional and friendly, and will recommend hairstyles and colours that suit my hair type and lifestyle needs (I prefer low maintenance). His haircutting techniques are great too. Carol has also assisted me a few times, and I like her techniques in hairwashing and scalp massage. Also appreciate Clara’s attention to detail, and I often feel very welcome with the complimentary drink and cushion for the lap. I look forward to the salon sessions at Michaela each time.

Our family’s favourite salon

Review for Koji Endo

We've been using Michaela's service for years. Both my husband and I visit them for our haircuts, hair colourings, treatments etc monthly. Endo and Aya have really good techniques. Hair colouring is always done nicely according to what I would request for. They would listen and advise accordingly as well. Now our 3yr old toddler comes here for her haircut too and she likes them so much. I was quite surprised as they actually can get her to sit still in no time and have a proper haircut 😂 (Review not yet verified)

Review for Koji Endo

Coloured my hair and did the Mochi Mochi treatment with Endo at Michaela. Really liked the outcome of the treatment, it made my hair smooth and soft, and did not weigh down my hair or make it too straight. Would visit again! (Review not yet verified)

Superb service

Review for Aya

My hair stylist Aya was very professionally, patience and attended to my needs. She explained clearly the various treatments and suggested one that suits my hair condition. I did the Sara Sara Treatment in March, the treatment leaves the hair softer and tamed the frizz. I went back for a second sara sara treatment in May and it further controlled the frizz. The service at the salon was superb, the staff is very attentive, the service is top notch and the whole experience is pleasantly comfortable. Will definitely go back again.

Professional and Passionate

So glad I found this cute Japanese Salon near our office. Their salon is conveniently located just in front of Clarke Quay MRT. They are very professional and passionate in understanding what services my hair needs. Kenta has recommended to do Straight Perm and Tokio Treatment to help me restore my dry and frizzy hair from my previous perm. My hair looked naturally straight with volume even after 3 days of washing. Will definitely come back to try their other services. thank you! (Review not yet verified)

Amazing experience

Review for Aya

I went to Michaela salon recently for a haircut having read amazing reviews about this place. But the real experience exceeded all the expectations I had. The amazing service starts even before you enter the salon. Upon booking the slot, I was contacted via whatsapp to confirm all the details and was given very detailed instructions how to get to the location. It impressed me, because I love when people are attentive to detail. The moment I arrived to the appointment I was warmly greeted by my stylist Aya, not a second of waiting time which very often happens in other places. Aya is such an amazing professional and just a wonderful lovely person to have a chat with. She carefully listened to all my preferences and executed the haircut with her signature style. I was beyond happy with the result. It was very easy for me to blow-dry and style it at home as well, which is a huge bonus. Another benefit is that you can get either a 10% discount when you visit the first time or a free soda spa. I opted for a soda spa which included a very relaxing massage and made me feel amazing. Plus, overall the atmosphere in the salon is so nice, every single person working there is sweet, smily and warm. I will definitely come back to Michaela again and could not recommend it more. Thank you so much again to my wonderful stylist Aya and all the team who made my visit so special! 😍 (Review not yet verified)

Great experience and definitely come back

Review for Koji Endo

It was my first time with Michaela and they did not disappoint! I did the Mochi Mochi treatment and a haircut by Endo (assisted by another lady - sorry I didn’t get her name). It was a pleasant experience from the moment you enter the salon. Staff were polite and helpful. Halfway through the treatment, I started having cramps and the staff helpfully offered me panadol. Thank you for going the extra mile. The hair treatment and haircut were both done well. Overall great experience. (Review not yet verified)

Great haircut and perm

Review for Kenta

I had a very pleasant experience at Hair Salon Tokyo MICHAELA, where I went to do a digital perm. The staff was welcoming, friendly and professional. Kenta, my hairdresser, took time to understand my needs and study my features. He got the length of my hair just right. With Aisha assisting him, Kenta completed the perm in less time than expected (I was in and out in two and a half hours). I love my new wavy haircut that's more subtle and natural-looking than the perms I used to get in Europe or the US. The price is okay for the quality, especially given that digital perms last for a long time. I will gladly be back for my next haircut. (Review not yet verified)

Smooth Experience

Review for Kenta

First visit to Michaela Hair Salon on 1st August 2021 to try out their Sara sara Treatment & Soda Scalp Treatment after seeing good reviews on it. 😊 My hairstylist was Kenta that day, very friendly guy. He explained what and how the whole process of scalp & hair treatment will be like as well as how it will benefit the hair with the help of his assistant doing the treatments. Before leaving, there were small samples given to maintain the hair condition. Plus point for that since it's rare to see salon do this. Overall, a must try hair & scalp treatment as Hair was indeed very smooth and scalp felt very refreshed. 😁 Good experience. 😊👍🏻 (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)
