Lee Ka Ja
Founder of Leekaja Salon

Overview

Are you a fan of Korean dramas and everything Korean? If so, rejoice!

One of Korea's biggest and most well-known salon chains frequented by Korean top celebrities such as Big Bang, Lee Seung Ki, Wonder Girls, 2NE1, Song Hye Kyo and even international artistes is now in Singapore

Those who visit Lee Ka Ja for the first time would definitely remember how welcoming the salon felt. Other than its warm lighting, vintage sofas for its guests and dedicated beverage bar that reminds us more of a cafe, the service is impeccable!

Within seconds of your arrival, there will be someone attending to you, offering you wine, smoothies or coffee while the salon manager comes over for a quick consultation.

They also use Bodum cups for some of their beverages, which helps keep the drink at the optimum temperature for a longer period of time. We love the detail!

Although the salon manager is Korean, her English is very fluent, making the experience a seamless one.

As much as we love the service here, the hairstylists here are to us the biggest attraction! Here, you can choose between Korean hairstylists or local hairstylists. All of them are very good in their work so it really depends on the service you're looking for! Walk in is however not advisable for both the Korean senior stylist Ted and local senior stylist Preston. Both tend to have appointment books full throughout the day with Ted's appointment book full 1-2 weeks before! 

If you meet them in person, you'll understand why! Ted, for example, look totally like a Korean heartthrob celebrity. We definitely felt our hearts fluttering when he turns to us with a smile during the consultation! We hear that he is great in haircuts, perms and volume rebonding so customers keep coming back for both the hair and the eye candy :)

Preston, on the other hand, gives off a cool Korean-style boyband type of vibe. He is not the overly chatty type but impresses with both his honesty and skill for vibrant hair colours! 

As popular as the above two male hairstylists are, we hear that local stylist James has also gotten a lot of GREAT reviews from customers (some of whom are Agent G's friends!). His amazing haircutting skill and attentive service has impressed most customers who go to him - not a surprise since he was previously an educator and is great with sculpted haircuts and exceptional hair colour designs that stand out aesthetically!

If you find it hard to book your appointments ahead of time, we would highly recommend you to give Korean Director Stylist Hye Jin, Korean Stylist Jenny, Korean Stylist Hyun Jin or Brazilian Stylist Alex. 

Both Hye Jin and Hyun Jin have just arrived in Singapore from Korea so they are still largely undiscovered gems in our opinion! Hye Jin is an expert in perms and volume rebonding given her many years of experience. The cute and attentive Hyun Jin is fantastic with haircuts, perms and volume rebonding as well - she has after all graduated top of her class for hairdressing! 

Surprisingly, prices here are also not very expensive with haircuts starting from $60 for ladies, hair colours at $120 and perms at $240. With skilled hairstylists, fabulous service, beautiful decor and reasonable prices, what more can we ask for?

Bleaching & Color

Review for Carmen

Carmen is really nice and thoughtful. She listened to my requests and tried her best to achieve the color that I want while still maintaining the integrity of my hair as best as possible. She made sure I understand the risk and gave good recommendations. She would constantly check on the color during processing and make sure that I didn't feel any discomfort. The color came out great! Totally recommended. (Review not yet verified)

Review for Caely

Exemplary service at LKJ during my visit today. Though it’s a busy day at LKJ, customer service associates didn’t forget to serve drinks, check in our appointment and ensuring that safe distancing measures were in place. I had an appointment with Senior Director Caely through recommendation and she is indeed experienced, friendly, humble and produced what you asked for. Was happy with my coloured hair with highlight today. Caely’s team was helpful, especially Ms Nita who is friendly, bubbly and provide the best hair wash (ever) and head massage. I truly enjoyed my time today and 2 hours doesn’t seems too long. Will be back!

So disapointed by value for money (rebonding treatment)

I went to Leekaja for Korean Straightening Perm 2 weeks ago, and am clearly disapointed by the quality and advices given by the salon. I got appointed to the new Korean director and had the manager as a translator. As soon as I arrived, they were surprised i took appoitment for KSP and said I cannot benefit from it since my hair is highlighted (which was not mentionned during the appointment) and were quite rude to insist there is no way i did it in Korea before (which i did 4 times before in Seoul). Staff was condescending and made me feel like I didn't know better. At the end, they recommanded i get a rebonding on top of my hair and cinderella treatment on the highlighted part, which cost me much more than orignally planned but I wanted to try since the Salon had such good reviews. If the result was here, i would not complain that much, but after 2 weeks, Cinderella treatment did give a smoother look, but the rebonding did not work on the root and hair is still curly (which was not the case when i did it in Seoul!). So at the end i paid $500+ for a much less qualitative result than i used to get for much less ! I regret listening to them, and would not recommend to go there at least for perm/ rebonding, way too expensive for the end quality.

Dear Jade


Thank you for visiting us!
We are sorry to hear that the end result did not meet your expectations.

From what we understood from the stylist, straightening perm or rebonding was not recommended as the hair was rather damaged from previous bleaching. That’s we suggested a combination from rebonding at the roots and Cinderella treatment to improve your hair condition.  We are happy to hear that the Cinderella treatment worked well but we note that the results from the root rebonding was not ideal.
As customer satisfaction is of utmost importance to us, we hope to arrange a consultation and a second opinion with stylist Zophia, who has extensive experience dealing with Caucasian hair. We look forward to seeing you next week and finally delivering on your dream hairstyle.

Warm regards
Team Leekaja Beauty Salon

Cold attitude, bad haircut

I had my hair cut by Catherine, a director here. For an $80 haircut, I was certainly not expecting the whole session to be over in 30 mins, neither was I expecting to walk away unhappy. My wash and blow was done in 15 mins, my haircut took around 12 mins, and my hair styled for 3 mins. I showed Catherine a picture of what I might want my hair to be cut like, and she just said you can't achieve this without perming. Which is not true because the photo was from a haircutting video and the hair was just blowdried. She started cutting my hair, and I asked her if she needed to see my face to know how to best cut the hair. I could have shown her a photo of me. She said, "no need, this kind of hair will suit everyone's face". You can imagine the level of confidence I was having about getting a cut best suited to my face. She never showed me the back of the hair once she was done (even barbers in $10 places do that), she didn't ask me if it was fine. She simply went straight to curling it, and how can I know the cut details and layers if she curls it immediately? Once she had haphazardly curled it (and totally did not end up like the photo I showed her), she said "Ok done", and she removed the cloak and towel and then stood in the back and started using her phone immediately. I couldn't believe it. I sat in the chair another minute to try and figure out what she had done, and if it was any good. She didn't notice this and she just kept using her phone, talking to the assistant. I should add that the hair was not blowdried using a brush, just with fingers, which I found out later that they typically do at this salon (so don't expect a bouncy blowout). After payment, I told the cust service staff about my experience and he apologised profusely.

He recommended Jun and Zac for a good haircut, and said he could see if I could come back for a fix with them. The cust service manager immediately got in touch with me, and she recommended I go for a fix with Senior Directors Ted or Rina, which was much needed because when I had washed my hair out, I could see the hair was so heavy and totally unlike the photo I showed Catherine. On that note, during my cut with Ted, he explained that Korean hairstyles are heavier generally, but he was happy to tailor the style to my preference. Ted was much friendlier and paid a lot more attention to the cut, making sure it suited my face, asking me how I wear and style my hair normally, and gave me great styling tips at the end. I’m not sure that the takeaway should be that we have to pay $150 (Ted’s fee) for a good haircut and service.

So make what you will of it, but know that of the 3 staff I spoke to, none of them cut their hair with Catherine.

Awesome!

Emil, was absolutely wonderful. I was pretty irritated with my hair when I walked in. Hair breakage and damage was just never ending. But after my experience with Emil, my hair just feels so much more tolerable. Great conversations, great attitude and great service. Thank you Emil! Here’s to many more sessions!

Haircut and cinderella treatment

Excellent service from Emil, who gave me a frank and helpful consultation about my hair. He was thoughtful and thorough when ironing through my hair (as part of the Cinderella treatment), taking care to iron out all areas of my hair with stronger kinks. Very impressed and will recommend Emil highly.

Express gelish

Kennie was meticulous with her work and I was able to try the cat eye design that I wanted for a long time! At the end she also offered to put some gold flakes which really jazzed up the overall design. Prices are very reasonable considering the location and service was great!

Very attentive and great quality service

Had the volume Rebonding and Cinderella keratin treatments. Emil gave a very helpful consult at the beginning before we started the treatment to make sure I was happy with what he proposed for my hair. Throughout the treatments, he was very attentive and carried out the treatments just as discussed resulting in a great look which I’m very satisfied with. Also gave me some helpful home hairstyling tips as well!
