Both Ladies and Men have a lot of things going against them in terms of hair in Singapore. Unlike other Asian neighbours Japan and Korea, our climate is a lot more humid, our hair a lot more fine and for ladies, a lot less time to manage their hair. My dream, ever since I founded Pro Trim years ago, is to help the normal Singaporean on the street achieve a beautiful blow-out look with a great haircut and perm that requires less than 5 minutes to style!

Tino
Founder of Pro Trim Hair Salon

Overview

Furnished with relatively simple decor, Pro Trim @ Ngee Ann City is the type of salon customers are very likely going to overlook. You can't really see the salon from the outside but just peek in from the entrance and you'll find a standard salon layout like this:

To be honest, we were not exactly wowed when we first walked in.

However, our impression started to turn for the better after spending some time within.

You see, the major reason why we decided to visit Pro Trim @ Ngee Ann City was because Agent G's FAVOURITE Korean stylist Joel Park has just moved here. If you recall, Joel saved Agent G's limp bleached hair with an awesome perm that lasted for more than 6 months. We arrived just as he completed the perm for some customers and we're happy to note that his perms are as awesome as ever: natural, sexy and glamorous! That's as expected even though we could never stop being amazed at just how pretty his perms are.

What was unexpected for us. however, was the perms done by other stylists in Pro Trim @ Ngee Ann City. We can't help but notice that many of their haircuts are perms look ALMOST just as good as Joel's. VERY very well done!

It was only upon further probing that we realize why. Pro Trim @ Ngee Ann City is the chain's flagship store. This means that this is where all its most ZAI hairstylists station themselves.

This includes its co-founders Tino and Florence as well as its most illustrious Korean stylists Joel Park.

There are so many good stylists here that if you throw a dart, you'll get a good haircut and perm no matter who you hit.

They don't do many promotions nor advertising but still have a big group of loyal customers thanks to strong word of mouth recommendations! Their customers range all the way from bosses of conglomerates, indonesian tycoons, celebrity pastors to the regular working professional and stay at home moms.

From what we can see, the reason why so many people choose to come here despite its hard-tofind location and less-than-amazing decor is because of ONE THING: Skill.

Even before Korean salons came in, Pro Trim was known to be among the best in the industry for perms. Very early on, Pro Trim's Vidal Sassoon trained founder Tino saw and loved how the Korean stylists are able to create romantic, beautiful hairstyles. He has therefore invested a lot of time fusing Vidal Sassoon cutting techniques with Korean perms to achieve the best of both worlds.

The result: Easy-to-manage Korean style haircut or perm that customers absolutely love! He has since trained his stylists in a similar style, which is why so many of local stylists are very competent in this area.

Thanks to their expertise and the aggregation of top stylists in Ngee Ann City, there are VERY FEW MISTAKES or REDOS in this salon, if at all. Instead, this is the place many go to when they get their hair damaged elsewhere because the stylists here will know just what to do to fix it.

Competence aside, the stylists here are very easy to come back to because they are just so warm and sincere. In their presence, the stylists here feel more like friends and family so you can feel that they truly emphathise and feel for you. (This may mean a treatment or trim here without charges from CERTAIN stylists if they know you need it) They also do not hardsell products or services you don't need, so you'll feel particularly relaxed here.

Best of all, prices are not exorbitant and is in fact a shade below what you would expect for their experience and service, making it a top choice for customers looking for value-for-money services!

Pro Trim @ Ngee Ann City may not be the most cool or chill salon you've been to but if you appreciate a good haircut and perm, we're confident that you won't be disappointed!

Featured In

Loves

  • Top stylists from entire Pro Trim Salon chain are stationed at this flagship outlet
  • Perms and Haircuts are highly recommended here; they have a number of outstanding Korean and local stylists who are among the best in Singapore for perms and Korean style cut
  • One of Agent G's favourite hairstylist for Perm Joel Park is situated here!
  • Prices are pocket-friendly, not too exorbitant given the stylists' level of skill
  • Higher level of privacy as shoppers from outside are unable to look into the salon
  • Stylists here treat you more like a friend / family rather than customers. Hence, they don't upsell as much and give very honest useful hair advice.
  • They count a number of famous businessmen, Managing Directors, Indonesian tycoons and even a famous pastor as their customer!

Not-So-Happy-With

  • Does not have the most luxurious decor
  • Provides beverages and biscuits but service doesn't feel particularly impressive. Sincere but not yet WOW.

Review for Joel Park

Joel is really great at choosing what colour suits your face skin tone. and his hair perm really super natural & big wave. My hair was previously very frizzy , dry too but after the treatment that he recommended, my hair is looking so great & feeling very good & smooth! Would definitely return to him! Highly recommend! Also, although he is quiet, he listens to what you want well but at the same time he recommends what’s best for your face shape/skin tone and matching your natural hair perm. thank you Mr Joel Park.

Experience was less than satisfactory with Joel Park

I had booked an appointment for a perm + haircut with Joel at 3pm. However, I was only attended to nearly 1 and a half hours later, around 4.30pm. Throughout the waiting period, I was moved from the entrance to a room in the salon and there were no magazines, refreshments, drinks or further updates on how long more the waiting time would take, except for arbitrary responses such as he will be attending to you shortly, and I ended up waiting more than 30 mins after that statement. Secondly, the pricing for perm for Joel was informed to me to be $180 when on the website it was stated that it was $155 for men's perm. Joel informed me that the $155 stated was for senior stylist only, but there was no mention on the website that there would be a surcharge for a director-level stylist, or any mention when I was booking the appointment. During the perming process, the picture I showed previously to Joel of how I wanted my hair to look like was that of a natural perm, but I was shocked to learn that no heating machine was used during the perming process, as should be standard for any ordinary perm. I had permed my hair previously many times at previous establishments and even though I always asked for a natural perm, a heating machine was always used to ensure that the hair looked like it was permed at least. Unfortunately, I only realized that no machine was going to be used when the curls were taken out and my hair was going to be washed. When I mentioned to Joel if a heating machine was going to be used, he mentioned that there was no need for natural perms. I felt that he should have at least mentioned that to the customer BEFORE the process if he felt that was the way to go, as I would have disagreed as I would obviously want my hair to look like it had been sort of permed after paying $180 for it. Lastly, during the washing process mentioned above, Joel washed my hair halfway (with soap in my hair) and left me at the wash basin for 20+ minutes before another stylist came to rinse my hair. I am not sure if this is the normal process but a heads up or any form of communication that this is normal and it would take x amount of minutes would have been nice. Overall, I was very surprised that my experience would be so poor given the huge amount of 5 star ratings for Joel here. Unfortunately, due to a lack of communication from Joel and the fact that he seemed to be have been very busy the whole day led to a very poor experience for me. The only pros for me would be that the haircut was decent and the staff were generally nice and friendly. Other than that, highly do not recommend. (Review verified)

Dear Ken, Thank you for visiting Pro Trim. We are sorry that you did not have a good experience here. We understand the long wait must have been upsetting. We should have informed you about the possible waiting time as his appointments are usually very packed esp on weekends. Still, it is our responsibility to let you know. We will discuss about this and see how we can improve our processes for a better experience in the future. Also, we used to serve refreshments and magazines for customers prior to COVID but heightened measures meant that we no longer do so. In light of gradual reopening, we will relook at what we can offer to improve our service. As for the pricing, we would like to apologise that the price on our website is indeed not the most updated. The most updated price list is at our physical shop itself, which is readily available upon request. Still, we will be updating it as soon as possible to prevent any misunderstandings. Thank you too for letting us know so that we can make changes to it. Whether we use heat / cold perm depends on the style selected. While heat perm is available for men at Pro Trim as well, the price is far higher at $280. Also, it is often more damaging as heat is involved on top of using perm lotion. As Joel is able to achieve the desired effect at lower price and lower damage to your hair with cold perm, he proceeded with the perm without using the machine. We are sorry that we did not explain to you clearly before this - we will learn from this experience and do better in the future. Thank you again for your feedback. One more thing we would like to share about: even though it seems as if nothing was done at the wash basin, the assistant actually applied the neutralizing shampoo to your hair. It is important to give the shampoo time to penetrate the hair as it neutralizes the perm lotion and closes the hair cuticles, reducing any damage. We are really sorry that we didn’t explain about this. Once again, we would like to apologise that we didn’t meet your expectation and satisfaction. We are glad to hear that you're happy with the haircut but yes, we have much to improve upon in our service. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We will take your feedback seriously and look at how we can work harder to provide better service. Hope you have a nice week ahead. Warm regards Team Pro Trim

Great service and skills I’ve ever experienced!

Review for Joel Park

I went to shop for dyeing my hair root & treatment. Actually my hair was kinda messy and super dry so I ask Joel to help me to save my hair. First of all, the color matched perfectly with my old hair color and I know it’s quite difficult to make it even as I went other shop last time and she make my hair as two tone color and it’s looks super messay even after dyeing root hair. But I love my hair with it and the color is like I dyed whole hair!!! Furthermore, the most beautiful thing is the haircut! If you never tried his haircut skills, please go and get the best Korean Style haircut right now! The treatment! My hair back to the healthy and bouncy condition!!! I love the hair after ‘The Midas Touch’! I highly recommend Joel and ProTrim, I am always Super satisfied on their service! Thank you and Love you ProTrim! (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)
