Rude staff and bad customer service

My mother went to have her haircut on 21 Apr 22 around 4plus at Toa Payoh main branch. After her haircut, she ask the lady staff to wash her hair as well, but the staff told her that she was unable to wash her hair as she is short . I find this is so ridiculous, the staff is so rude ,disrespectful and unprofessional in handling customer. My mother didn’t ask the name of the lady staff. Please look into the matter .

Rude staff

The staff was very rude. Talking to me and not replying me. There was once, the staff did not trply me simply because i asked her to cut my hair shorter. She felt that i was judging her cutting skills by simply asking her to cut my hair shorter. She purposefully cut it very short which ended up not nice at all (Review not yet verified)

Worst rebonding experience ever

Visited Jurong East branch at 6.30pm. The China male hair stylist is impolite and rushing to off work. When it's about 8.15pm, he literally use his bare hand splashing the neutralizer all over my hair and wash it off directly. T-T motion neutralizer doesn't need to leave in for at least 1 minute? Yet, he did the final haircut hurriedly. Spend $139.80 for soft rebonding + wash + haircut + offensive language. What a horrible experience! (Review not yet verified)

Bad Admin

I visited the Boon Keng branch. I booked 6.30pm but the admin person wrote 4.30pm in the book. I came at 6.30pm and they didn't even say anything, until the second customer came who booked at 6pm. Then the admin person and hairstylist started pushing the blame onto me saying I'm supposed to come at 4.30pm. My question then is why did nobody call me when I failed to turn up at 4.30pm, and when I turned up at 6.30pm, they didn't even question me until the second customer who booked at 6pm came? First of all, you wrote the wrong timing into the appointment book. Secondly, you didn't call when I failed to turn up at the supposed timing that you wrote on the book. Thirdly, you kept pushing the blame onto me? How is that my fault? Won't recommend people to go there. Always have to pray for a smooth experience before going. (Review not yet verified)

Worse ever haircut done in 05mins

Visited the bedok branch and the lady cutting hair is so rude and just shouted at me to sit down and quickly cut. After telling her I wan Number 1 on both side of the hai she just take razor and razor everything off. And than top tell her not to cut so much she basically snip off and ruin my hair and made it very thin. I mean come on la if you dont like your job dont take it out on customer. We just want a decent haircut definitely not heading back. (Reivew not yet verified)

Really Cheap!

Not many service providers left in Singapore who are like Snip Avenue, really! Cheap is the key word to identify Snip Avenue with - particularly in the area of Service! Let me highlight the Yishun Branch in particular. The management is very fortunate to have a staff in this branch who makes sure that customers have an experience they will never forget. She is crude right from the start when she appears at the door commanding that the trace together app displays that check-in is done. If customers are lucky, she will also be the hairdresser attending to them. It's difficult to describe the very short grooming process which ends soon after it starts. The highlight of it all is the manner she demands for the payment of $3.8. It is very similar to unlicensed moneylenders demanding defaulters for payment, I would imagine. Overall the experience that many would have had at the Snip Avenue is unforgettable for the reasons that many would know. I would like end this review with a quote by Maya Angelou for the management and staff (in particular that reputation-spoiler obnoxious lady). "I have learnt that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel" All the best Snip Avenue!! (Review not yet verified)

Disappointment

I was initially impressed by the cheap prices of the haircut but as the price speak for itself the services and profession were poor and a disaster.Firstly, I will need to highlight the poor customer service of the lady who served me and my friend; when me and my friend walked in the outlet, instead of being greeted with smiles and basic respect, we were shouted at and ‘instructed’ to sit down and not waste their time. Isn’t it funny for a customer to apologise for the staff faults? I apologise multiple times even it was not my fault. But she greeted me with offensive mockery Secondly, she told me not to question her profession and I did but her actions contradicts her words -the haircut was a great disaster, it was not even approaching my minimum expectation of a proper haircut; it wasn’t cut up to the length I wanted, and it was frizzy and the shape of the hair cut was bad. This clearly shows that she was self boosting and was over confident of her skills which clearly isn’t the case. From this, it is clear that we can clearly question her integrity too. Thirdly, I believe the root causes doesn’t lie on her, after seeing so many complaints and reviews on snip avenue, there might be a very serious management issue with this company. Hopefully, some actions will be taken in future to this handle this poor management of staff and quality of haircut! (Review not yet verified)

Terrible service , terrible haircut

I had a haircut at the Jurong branch. Initially was really happy to get a hair cut below five dollops BUT just after I stepped in I was screamed at by a SHORT HAIRED lady, followed she uses crude offensive words against me. She told me not to doubt her profession and I did it as she said before her haircut … BUT THE HAIRCUT TURNEd OUT TO BE SO TERRIBLE AND BAD that AFTERWARDS I HAD TO GET ANOTHER HAIRCUT TO FIX IT. Clearly, there is a lack of respect to customer and integrity as she claimed to be professional but gave me a terrible haircut. (Review not yet verified)

Bad hair day!

Attending an online conference or lesson on zoom but don’t want to turn on your camera. Fret not, Snip Avenue( Bishan Branch) Is your one stop solution. Go there for a haircut and you will have the best BAD HAIR DAY you can wish for. So bad that everyone else in the meeting will tell you to turn off your video cam so that they don’t go blind!

Terrible staff, terrible service, only care about money-making

Went to the Bishan branch near the bus interchange for a haircut, since my usual hairstylist used to work there. However, to my utmost dismay she had resigned. (Most probably because of the terrible staff welfare.) Worse, they replaced all the better hairstylist with PRC men who are very rough and rude. When they served me, he asked how I would like to get my hair cut; I showed him a previous photo of my haircut by my usual hairstylist and he began to cut. His handling was rough and within 3 minutes he said he was done. Terrible!!! He barely even cut my hair. Yes it’s cheap but still I expect my hair to be cut. I asked him again to compare it with my photo and he started to become very rude. He said that if I wanted my haircut to be like that, I need to pay 18.80 instead of the usual 4.80. What a rip off! I would rather go anywhere else to cut my hair if I had the time and am willing to pay 20 dollars for a haircut. (Not too sure where these people learn hairstyling? Perhaps from cutting vegetables? Haha,) Jokes aside, All in all, would strongly discourage anyone to cut their hair here unless you want to look like a rotten broccoli or want your day ruined by the terrible attitude of the staff. No wonder nowadays their business is ‘BOOMING’ in that you can get a haircut instantly when u step in because there is nobody there! (Review not yet verified)

Push moneygrabbing staff (Jurong Gateway)

They are so pushy to upsell and get people to buy their treatments. Even when I repeatedly said no and quite insistent, they just put the cream on my hair and said it was for my own good, need to know how to enjoy life. It is also not their money, and their treatments are expensive without much effect. I really hate them a lot, especially the counter lady, and will not be going back for rebonding, even though their prices may be lowest. They will push you to buy their cashcards, $500/$1000, giving you free credits, that is how they survive. But later they will raise prices and tell you to topup. Once you sign up, you are at their mercy, don't be a fool! (Review not yet verified)

Poor service (Bendemeer Branch)

Counter staff was rude and merely asked what services needed. When heard tt only for ‘cut’, she showed her displeasure. Waited and hair dresser suggested washing my hair before cutting. Declined and had to put up with her unpleasant remarks. Understand that they were trying to push customers take on more rather then just a simple cut. But they should respect the decisions of the customers. To avoid at all cause. (Review not yet verified)

Faithful customer but not after today experience (Jurong West )

Horrible attitude. I had always been patronising this salon for 10 plus year . Did my rebonding , highlight and trim here for the past 10 years. I also recommended to friends but the whole experience changed after today. Went into the salon for a simple trim , the lady with sulking face asked if i wanted a hair wash . Since i washed my hair yesterday night i replied nope . Through the whole cut she pulled my hair v hard and past comment like cannot be lazy not to hold on to both side of the mask when i checked with her if i only need to release the side that she was cutting . Really distasteful experience . With so many bad reviews online , i hope that their management look into it and please don’t write professional hair cut . Most of them can only cut straight more like trainee stylish . But to be fair to them what do you expect with that price point . (Review not yet verified)

Attitude from bad to WORST (Yew Tee Outlet)

What's wrong with the staff the attitude is bad to worst, one hair cut waiting time is 1hr 30mins (pls bear in mind we are paying not asking for FREE CUTTING) and only 3 customers doing the hair treatment, rest of the staff is siting and chatting taking their own sweet time!! $4.80 is set by your company policy if your staff think that the commission that they earning is less try to talk to your own staff. Can the management do something and be nice to your staff I always believe when you are nice and good to your staff your staff will be nice to the customer too, don't let your company image become the most ugly and worst in SINGAPORE.

WARNING- Do not go Bedok Reservoir outlet

Worst experience ever. Went into the salon and there was nobody. Then the staff told us not enough workers so the rest had to wait and my sister was waiting on the chair while he cut my hair. From the moment we walk in black face until we walk out. Nevermind about that, he was brushing my hair like it is made of metal. Brushing damn hard until my hair all fall off damn painful and he was cutting damn fast even tho there was only 2 person in queue. Terribly attitude. After that asked me if i am sure i want to cut thinner with a bad tone. I really regretted saying yes because he combed even harder and treated my hair like garbage. Haven't even cut finish then comb and tell done. It was done in less than 5 minute and FYI my hair is like waist length. Cut until shorter than shoulder length so fast it was not even. After that i suffered from hair loss and i am dropping alot of hair even until 2 days later. I hope my hair will recover from the violent treatment soon. I have had bad experience with hair salon but this is definitely the worst hairdresser ever. Treats ur hair like poop and deserves 0 star. (Review not yet verified)

Super super Rude staffs

I’ve been visiting Snip Avenue for these 6 years at their different branch, and I decided to give up my member card with another 7 times haircut after I cut my hair at this Bedok branch for few times. Not to mention this outlet required you to top up another $2 even you have a member card, I’m totally fine with that if you provide a proper service, I don’t need a fancy service, I just hope that you can talk to your customer just a little more polite. At first when I visit, there’s one Aunty serving me and she keep asking me how I want to cut with a very bad attitude and I was like it’s ok maybe she just had a bad day , after I mention that and she cut my hair into different thing. After that all my colleague and friends are asking me why my hair looks like that. Then the second time I visited this outlet, there was a different hair stylist this time but with a same bad attitude, I was like, I guess I didn’t owe you guys anything? And can tell he anyhow cut my hair like he’s rushing to somewhere (there’s no queue outside). So right after that I asked them to keep that member card cause I’m not going to visit them again. So please think twice before you come, but better don’t visit this Bedok outlet, I visited all other outlets was totally fine. (Review not yet verified)

Discrimination on type of customers

A few of us guys were queuing for haircut. Behind us was a lady. The shop manager came out to ask the lady, who was behind our queue, and the lady wanted colouring. She was allowed to cut queue to go into the shop, while us guys still have to wait in line. Just because colouring job costs more money than our guys haircuts. This is TRUELY DISCRIMINATION AND UNFAIR PRACTICE. Not a professional and ethical way to treat your customers.

Horrible staff

My phone accidentally vibrated off the table and fell to the floor. Nothing was damaged, not even a scratch. However the hair dresser auntie at this bukit batok outlet just kept on rambling about how my phone was doomed and that every glass component is gone. Even insisted i get a new phone. I couldnt even get a simple 10 min haircut in peace. I did not complain or blame anyone for my phone dropping why is she so bloody anal about it as if its her phone i damaged

The Staff all got attitude problem.

I when to the outlet at sengkang (anchorvale) near farmway LRT. Went into the more like shop, not saloon, Not being serve, I got to ask them i'm here for hair cut. that the cutter reluctantly look at me got space than you sit down lor, guess they not interested in my business. I waited for 20 min than my turn, than that lady show me a 25 cent look, than I ask next is my turn? she like reluctant to serve me. I feel like walking out that moment but eventually I sitted down. don't even ask how would I like to cut my hair, I just told her not to cut too short just trim my side will do. after she finishing cutting my hair, I not satisfy at all, she trim my hair too short. I would not recommend this shop for hair cut. think malay barber better than them, at least will some form of service. Personally I will not go back to that shop ever again. I would prefer pay $10 for a hair cut than $3.8 for that cheapo cut. Price is what you pay value is what you get.

Hair Treatment package

Being honest, they are cheap for hair treatment. This is the 3rd or 4th time I buy from them but no more after today. 1. Wet my shirt because she did not cover my wet hair with towel after washing my hair 2. The hair steamer drop and no one bother to put it back. Maybe around 15 min. Then some one finally bother to put it back with what ever remaining time. No one reset the hair steamer. 3. My hair is no completely dry after blowing. Because they are anxious to do the 5 dollar hair cut. I Guess the business strategy is on 5 dollar haircut. Utterly disappointing.

Horrible! Horrible!

Comments on Snip Avenue (Hougang Ave 1 outlet)

This is our experience: My son (12 years old) came out of Snip Avenue Hougang Ave 1 outlet looking like an army boy! He's a pre-teen, very, very concerned about how he looks. He asked for "slope", the staff asked No. 1, 2 or 3. When my hubby clarified, it seems "3" is the longest. So he said "No. 3" There was no chance to stop her! She started from the top! His hair was shaved within minutes! My son came out of the salon crying, hiding himself and even wears a cap at home! He is reluctant to go to school and we have a persuade him to do so! Just because he's a student, he's still a human being and has feelings! The staff only knows how to shave off hair is it? Never, never again! Date of "shaving" - Fri, 16 Mar 2018, evening

You'll know why it's $3.80

Super rude and unprofessional young aunty cutting my hair. Never trust what they show on their glass door that "Please be assured that all our stylists are professional.". Kept talking to her colleague who had nothing to do while cutting my hair. Could even cut when her eyes were not looking at my hair. Cut my hair until one side flat and one side slant, still very rude to tell that she cannot control how it looks after tieing up. Blaming that I didn't hold my hair at the center, that's why it looks unsymmetrical. Come on, it's common sense that it's because it's already cut to be unsymmetrical when laid down. I had to trim it by myself when I got back home. Wait until it's longer then I have to go for another proper haircut. This is a lesson and I will never go back to any Snip Avenue again.

Total disaster with attitude problem

On the day of my prom, this wonderful hair salon decided to screw up my hair when I entrusted them with it. I went to the Braddell branch. Picture on the left: I did it at another salon with treatment and they helped me to curl my hair. My hair was wavy and soft and smelt good. The green colour was also visible. Picture on the right aka my worst nightmare: As you can see my hair is in a mess and its BURNT. MY HAIR IS LEGITIMATELY FRIED. The guy used a flat iron to curl my hair WHICH OBVIOUsly DIDNT GO WELL BECAUSE MY HAIR GOT BURNT. Lemme just say, I actually wanted to go there just for a curl. There was a lady who encouraged me to do the treatment cause my hair was dry. So I agreed but GUESS WHAT FAIRY GODMOTHER AND HER APPRENTICE SCREWED UP MY HAIR MAKING IT WAY WORSE THAN IT WAS BEFORE. ITS DRY AS SAHARA DESSERT. So at first I walked out of the salon without knwoing much, until I sat at Macs and examined my hair. I almost wanted to slap someone when I compared both pictures. It took me much consideration so I went back to the salon with my mum on the phone to talk to them. My mother would obviously be mad and she tried to suppress her anger and the same lady who encouraged me to do my hair answered the phone, showing my mother attitude. One good thing was that they offered to try to help me do something to resurrect my hair but I was so angry and lost trust in their job as that man who did my hair as well screwed up my friend’s. Hence, I just walked out the salon with a sahara dessert on head and an unpleasant experience and $51.60 ripped off me. This is the worst salon I have been to with inexperienced and attitude problem. If you are incompetent with the job and unable to speak nicely to your customers, then don’t join the customer service department. Even a 16 year old like me knows better than you. I am so pissed off!
