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!

UPDATE: They just won the 2022/2023 Celebrities' Choice Brand Award from RED Honorary Brand Award 赤龍榮譽品牌大獎!

This is considered one of the most prestigious and honourable Asia brand certification awards, given to local enterprises and entrepreneurs.

If they're a trustable brand name in the industry locally and amongst celebs, you know you can trust them!

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

I have had my hair done by Director Joel Park for over 7 years. I always feel this way, thank you for creating a style that perfectly suits me and my sister's face shape, making my hair really easy to care for at home, and always kindly explaining how to care for it at home. The perm is also so easy to care and  last long, natural and even last long , people say that, “If the perm last long like this beautifully  for a long time, the customer’s return visit date will be delayed, good for us but bad for Joel?Haha 😁” Thank you always, Director Joel Park (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

I definitely recommend Joel. He is professional

Review for Joel Park

Update: Am back here at Pro Trim for my yearly hair perm. My last perm with Joel lasted for a full year and I love how I don’t even have to do anything to my hair and it looks good and natural all year round. I love it. Please look for him if you need a beautiful fuss free curl that last for an entire year! Joel Park is my go to hair stylist in Singapore and I love how he is able to customise a hair perm that suits your individual face shape and appearance. If you’re someone who have never permed your hair before, I definitely recommend Joel. He is professional, efficient and to top it all, his perm last for at least one year!

Super Happy my hair wity director Joel Park.

Review for Joel Park

It's summer, so I got a light haircut and dyed my hair a bright color. I had a lot of concerns about my bangs, but Director Joel sensibly cut them so that I could either slick them back or let them look natural 여름 맞아 가볍게 헤어컷도 하고 밝은 색상으로 염색 했어요. 앞머리 고민이 많았는데 뒤로 넘길 수도 있고 내추럴하게 내릴 수도 있게 조엘 원장님이 센스 있게 컷해주셨답니다.

Joel Park gives good advice on the colour, type of curls, haircut based on my skintone and face shape. Best hair perm always.

Review for Joel Park

Joel has been my trusted hairstylist for 3 years now. I have always wanted to try to perm my hair but not convinced it will turn out good. Finally took a chance on Joel and since then, i cannot see myself going to any other stylist! He gives good advice on the colour, type of curls, haircut based on my skintone and face shape. His assistants are also very gentle and respects my quite space. So a trip to Joel's salon is a very enjoyable me-time for me! (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

Joel Park, He works wonder!

Review for Joel Park

Joel Park listens and delivers. I have been living with straight & lifeless hair for the past 30 years and had negative experience with empty talk hairdresser in the past. It took me great courage to come to Joel and give it a “one last try.” Joel listens to me and delivered voluminous curls. I now own a head of “salon-set” ready hairdo daily! I strongly recommend anyone who wants a transformation to visit Joel Park. He works wonder! (Review not yet verified)

Did a men's perm with Joel Park and the results turned out great. The perm still lasts with minimal maintenance for my lifestyle and Joel did a great job in identifying the perm I needed. If I were more diligent with the hair conditioning and treatments, I am sure the perm would last even longer. Highly recommended! (Review not yet verified)
