We created The Beauty Emporium to serve the discerning woman who can appreciate detail, class and style. Every single element is well taken care of from the moment you enter and even after you're back at home... simply because we know you're worth it!

Co-Founders
The Urban Aesthetics

Overview

There's something about The Beauty Emporium we loved the moment we stepped into the salon. The posh marble decor, bright lights, friendly counter staff and the small details that reeks of luxury and sophistication, The Beauty Emporium is THE hair salon you shouldn't miss in Raffles City.

Tucked along a secret walkway on Level 3, this hidden gem of a salon is not easy to find... but if we assure you that the walk is well worth it.

Beyond the luxury and comfort offered by the salon itself, The Beauty Emporium is staffed by some of the very best hairstylists you can find in Singapore.

We're specifically talking about Hidero, Leslie, Leong, Jacqueline, Alex and Annie, all of whom are movers and shakers of the hairdressing industry.

An all-round Japanese stylist, Hidero is awesome at haircuts, colours and perms. His superior skill has gained the respect of many in the industry and is a reason why he is always among the first to push the boundaries of perm in the case of Advante Perm and colours using Mydentity.

They also include in their team veteran celebrity hairstylists Leslie and Leong Lim. Frequently featured in magazines, both stylists are highly popular among celebrities, entrepreneurs and the Who's Who in Singapore thanks to their fabulous haircuts honed through decades of training and experience. Leong, in particular, has been involved in cuts, styling and conceptualization for various movie and theatre productions.

Leslie on the other hand is multi-talented, with his ability to fix botched perms and make you look as gorgeous as Emily in Paris!

While these two may not tell you about their very illustrious customers during your visit, don't be surprised if you find a celebrity or two sitting beside you. 

But we're honestly most impressed by the the fading hair colour Jacqueline did on Agent K late 2020. 

We haven't even talked about Jacqueline whose fading hair colours will leave you with gorgeous hair for months

the innovative Alex who would give you an unexpected spin on the hairstyle.

or the cute perms by Annie.

If you're looking for a top-notch hair salon whose skill, service and quality of products surpass many equivalent salons out there, you shouldn't miss The Beauty Emporium, a premium hair salon raved not just by celebs but also ordinary customers alike. 

P.S. They just introduced a new service: Wisdom Highlights to help ease your transition into greying hair! Look out for our feature on it soon!

Hair-Raising experience!

For the last 23 years, no one else has laid a scissors in my hair other than Leslie. He somehow manages to give me a different look each time we meet (I keep my hair short, so you're looking at monthly visits). I don't know how he does it, but he is my Edward Scissorshand and my best kept beauty secret! Always keeping it fresh, after all these years ;)

Hair Artistry!

Leslie Yap from Hair Illustrated/Urban Aesthetics - is a master of hair. He understands who I am, what I like, yet always challenges me to consider an out-of-the-box experience... with my hair, I mean. Leslie is incredibly talented in creating different looks with the same mop of hair for over 10 years. I couldn't see what he was up to as his scissors was flying all over my hair - I was also snoozing as usual. He makes me feel very comfortable every time I’m seated at the chair. When I woke up, I was squinting at the mirror and I remembered feeling... Uh-Oh... WHAT DID HE DO THIS TIME??? So, here's how I look with his amazing artistry! Kudos to Leslie Yap! You made my life so fun!

Hidero is amazing!

Review for Hidero

Hidero is amazing! I have extremely stubborn curly hair and Hidero used the Paimore Grats rebonding and Tokio inkarami hair treatment for me! My hair stayed smooth for almost 2 months ( which is rare for my hair type ). He is also extremely patient. This salon and Hidero has definitely earned my loyalty.

Haircut with Mr Hidero san

Review for Hidero

Have been wanting to cut my long hair (mid back) for a while but I wanted to find someone with skills who knows how to handle messy natural curls like mine. If you have natural curly/wavy hair, you will know how much of a hassle it is to style/groom your hair. I decided on Jargo and specifically Hidero San after reading a review here because the agent had similar hair to mine. I'm really glad I choose to come here. Mr Hidero will share his opinions on the hairstyle and explain every step during the haircut. I'm so relieved for once I met a hairdresser who can work with what I have, instead of all my previous experience where they advise me to rebond or straighten my hair to make it me easier and manageable for them to work with instead. My haircut is the most stylish one I have in all of my hair cuts. The assistant was also nice and welcoming. Love the haircut and the entire experience !

Hair colouring with Mr Hidero San

Review for Hidero

I previously looked for Mr. Hidero san for a haircut and came back to do a hair colour a month later. I left the decision up to him, it was between a dark violet for a warmer touch or a cool ash. We went with the dark violet to cover my brassy hair. It's been two and a half months since and it's the longest that my hair could retain a colour before the brassiness starts to show again. I definitely looked and felt a lot fresher after the service. Thank you so much.

Haircut with Mr Hidero san

Review for Hidero

The haircut I had by Mr. Hidero san was a very pleasant one. It was my first time engaging his service but am definitely coming back. This is due to a level of precision and also care that he puts in, be it when you ask for advice or through what he thinks work best for your hair. It has been two and a half months since the cut and the shape of my hair is still holding well.

So glad I found Rina!

It was my first visit here and customer service was helpful and friendly and I felt really comfortable. Rina truly lives up to all the great reviews I’ve read about her. My naturally wavy hair looks awesome and so manageable after her magic touch and I’m just so glad I ever discovered her. I highly recommend her if any of you are looking for a non damaging perm.

Great full service from Mogan

I am new to Singapore and was referred to Mogan at Jargo by a friend, and haven't needed to look anywhere else. He seems to know exactly what I mean when I tell him what I want, and takes everything into account from lifestyle to personality. He is very precise and great at minimising/preventing damage. Have had cuts, colour (non-ammonia) and perm with him and my hair is in one of the best states it's ever been in. I also really appreciate that he takes a long-term approach, cutting my hair in a way that won't need a trim for at least 3 months or even more. After the cut he also shows me how to style it and always follows up later to see how I am enjoying the new style. The salon is on the pricey side but I think it's worth it. All staff are very professional - once I warned Mogan that I had a cold before coming, and when I arrived the receptionist had a hot ginger lemon tea waiting for me! Amazing service.

Rare Gem

It was my first visit and Jessica attended to me. Everyone was just so warm and hospitable, from the receptionist to the assistant to the stylist. Jessica listened attentively to my needs and requests and gave me exactly the results I wanted. And she gave me a great massage during shampoo as well. Its rare to find a salon that doesnt damage my coarse and fragile hair after rebonding and curl. Results were super smooth and shiny. Most importantly there is no hard selling involved with such amazing skills and services. Will be back for more.

Great hair care experience

From the point of making an appointment to leaving the salon, the staff were really kind and professional. The whole ambience of the salon is comfortable, relaxing and with well-appointed furnishings. My hairstylist was Morgan and he was very skilful in his craft, explaining to me each step of the process and taking the time to apply the treatment thoroughly. Despite the salon being busy, Mogan never rushed through looking after my hair and that was something I appreciated. Another hairstylist came along too, I believe he is called Kenny and he too did a great job at helping Mogan attend to my hair. There was no hard selling of products or treatments, and the prices were shown to me clearly before the treatments began to ensure I was aware of the charges. I feel that the staff whom I interacted with were really nice and knowledgable about their products. And my stylists took the time to analyse and give tips on how to manage my hair. So overall it was a good experience and would highly recommend this salon! :)

Haircut

Review for Hidero

It's been 6 months since I had my haircut by Hidero, and I remain amazed at how his haircut has stayed in shape! It's been the longest duration that I've gone without cutting my hair, and I still love how his cut brings out the waves in my coarse wavy hair. I really liked the way he cut my fringe too (my favourite fringe thus far) . Although I will be cutting it again soon because the ends are getting so frizzy that no amount of hair oil can save them, it is with much regret, because I really don't think I've had any other haircut that suited me so much. Hidero has really done a good job in his thorough analysis of my hair and attention to detail in his cutting :) I would definitely return again if they have other promotions again!

Skillful hair cutting by Jap Director -Hidero

Review for Hidero

So pleased with my haircut that I felt I had to create an account on this website to share. I had been due for a haircut for a few months now since I was waiting for my usual hairstylist to return back to Singapore but it got to a point where my thick hair was growing severely out of shape. I called on a last minute basis because I needed to be at work. From arranging the appointment to the end of the haircut it was all a very seamless process. Hidero, Japanese Leading Designer was my hairdresser. Very polite, and he took the effort to introduce himself with a handshake, not common in most salons I've been to. I'm usually very cautious about trying new salons because my hair isn't easy to handle due to its thickness. Which is also why I only do a haircut if it's my first time at a salon. You can tell Hidero is very skilled because he takes his time to assess you hair, how it falls on your face, the shape of your scalp, texture. Highly meticulous and he takes pride in his work. Hidero tells me that his goal is to make his customers happy and if they are happy, he is very happy. No doubt Hidero is a master with his scissors and is razor focused at his craft but not to the point of awkward silences during the process. Hidero speaks fluent English from having spent time in the States, so there was no difficulty in communicating what I expected out of the haircut. He blowdrys my hair really nicely but he also knows that it is probably not my usual habit to do so on a daily basis - he tells me I don't have to do it! Really curious to see how it'll look after a wash at home this evening. Hidero doesn't hardsell, which is great! I asked if I would look good in a perm, to which most Stylists usually tell me I would. He noticed my natural waves from early on and after a few moments and sharing his thought process, he concludes that I don't! The finished product - I was very pleased with my new hair and when I returned to office after hours I received compliments already. I'm looking forward to my next hair cut in a couple of months, or maybe sooner so I can try out a dye. Oh and to top it all off, there was a 30% discount on their services for first timers. Just wow.

Tokio Inkarami Treatment by Mogan

After much research, I made an appointment at Jargo. I did a Tokio Inkarami treatment with Morgan instead of perm coz he suggested that I got to do a step by step solution so I can achieve not only a good hair but a healthy one. I am very happy with the result so far. You can tell how skillful Morgan is as he worked swiftly and confidently with my hair. Not to mention he asked for second opinion with his Japanese colleague Hidero to ensure the treatment fits my hair current need. My hair was done in about 3 hours. The experience was enjoyable.

Will definitely go back again.??

Haircut review

My haircut was done by Morgan and he is such a professional hair stylist. You can actually tell that they are really good at what they are doing. I requested for a haircut with bangs and maybe a perm after. Mogan really examined if it was necessary do a perm and he advised that it was not necessary (by looking at the current condition of my hair). I liked the honesty of the hair stylist, and appreciate that they do not push you to do or purchase certain products like what other hair salons do. We proceeded to do the hair wash first and it was so comfortable along with the massage, making me feel that my scalp was deeply cleansed. As for the haircut, Mogan skillfully trimmed my hair (from a slightly longer bob to a shorter bob hairstyle). I find that he is very detailed and my hair shape really changed for the better. In addition, he also provided me tip on how to manage my fringe. After my haircut, I was just waiting for my friend to finish hers, Mogan still takes care of his customers and offered a refill of water. Hence, I find that the overall experience was great. Service and skills are awesome, and am really pleased. I really like that Mogan took care of my hair from start to finish (including wash, cut and blow dry). In my opinion, it is a salon that I can definitely put myself at ease for them to do my hair. (:

Saved my beyond-damaged-hair

Review for Hidero

Was browsing online for a salon to save my bleached, frizzy and multiply coloured hair, to get it back to a more natural and manageable state. I was more than amazed at the service and overall result at Jargo. Hidero from start till end was attentive in analyzing my hair history, and in prescribing the right treatments and cut for my desired effect. His level of skill and attention to detail cannot be expressed in words. I requested for hair lighter (in weight), darker (in color) and shorter in length but didn't show him any pictures - because I didn't want a mimicked hairstyle. As such he checked in at intervals to ensure I was comfortable with the length taken off and the style being cut. I was more than happy to go along with any reccomendation he gave which included a 5 step treatment to save my brittle hair, a haircut to shape my face, and to wait (3 days later) before dying it a darker color. He also reccomended against rebonding (which I thought was needed because my hair was just all over the place) in retrospect I am thankful I listened, because my hair retained shape and still looks soft and straight. I've just gone back to get it colored but even before the dye my friends and family commented on it's improved state (even with the bleach still in!). Now of course it's everything I wanted it to be and more. My mom was shocked at the improvement, and made an appointment for next week!

The price I feel, is completely justified, and more than worth it.

Best hair salon!

Review for Hidero

I was browsing through internet for hair salons in Singapore. There are many choices and some are more noticeable. Came across Jargo and read some of the reviews. As my hair is frizzy and dry, i wanted a volume rebonding. Though Jargo is new, i decided to give it a try. I was attended by Mr Hidero (yes, he is a Japanese hairstylist). He is very professional. He listens and prioritise healthy hair than just do what I wanted. His skill in hair cutting is really excellent! Salon ambience is classy and other service staff also serve diligently. Price is reasonable and value for money.

Disappointment

I waited three -four weeks for my hair perm. This is because the Director (can't remember her name) has a busy schedule, off on sun, not taking appoint at late evening. I hv a frizzy & the stylist suggested to perm C curl at the end & rebound in the middle. She told me if my hair is still flat, I can always go back for a root perm????? I am a very simple person, I just let her do what she recommended. During the hair perm, the staff was trying to persuade me to buy some hair products.... Also, the stylist tried to sell me to color my hair. All these hard selling are very disturbing. I just want to get my hair done quietly. When I paid the bill, there is a director charge -$90(? can't remember). I was not told when I booked appointment! Of course, the total charge is not cheap. I told myself is OK as long as my hair looks good. Guess what! My hair is frizzy again....after a month's time. It is really not worth of the charge I paid.

Dear Anna,

Thank you for visiting JARGO Korean Hair Salon.

We are sorry to hear that your recent experience with us isn't as ideal as we had hoped. We have taken note of your feedback and will immediately take action to improve, especially in areas highlighted.

Firstly, the additional charge is for Director's Haircut. The perm or rebonding is not inclusive of haircut. We are sorry for not being as clear as we should have before the service. We will put in place a clearer consultation so that this does not happen again. We have also taken note of the assistant's overzealous selling behaviour. It is not our intention to make you feel hardsold in anyway and we are sorry that it appeared so.

From what we understand from the assistant, the hair product will go a long way to help you maintain the effect of the treatments done. We are sorry that the assistant made you feel uncomfortable and will train our stylists further to make sure the service levels improve. As for the frizziness, that should certainly not be the case. To show our apologies and commitment to our services, we would like to welcome you back to our salon for a complimentary consultation and treatment to see what we can do about it.

Do give us a call to arrange for an appointment if this is something you may be interested in.

Once again we are very sorry and hope that you will give us another chance to make it up to you!

Warm regards

Love the color :)

After a week of my perm, I go back for my color as my black roots can be seen now and it looks ugly. I wanted to color on the same day as perm but Hazel does not recommend as it will damage to my hair. Hazel suggested me not to whole head as my bottom hair are a bit dry and she thinks the color looks still ok. So, she dyed my top part of the hair where black roots come out. At first, I thought that if I dye only black roots, I will be charged for root dyeing price. However, Hazel told me that she needs to charge for full head color for medium as my roots has some length which I think is a bit pricey. Other than that, as usual, Hazel cares my hair well and listen to my requirement. The color turns out well and light as what I wanted. I wanted to get non-ammonia color because I have hair loss problem and don't want to irritate my scalp but Hazel explained me that non-ammonia colors are darker and will not be able to get the same color as my original color. So, I just want for normal hair dye but she greatly takes care of my scalp. Thank you for that. There is no hard selling at all. But this time round, I bought Tokio Inkarami shampoo and treatment because Hazel recommended it and I remembered Agent G told me that this brand shampoo is really good and worth a try. So, I bought the set. I love both shampoo and treatment (the treatment bottle a bit difficult to squeeze out the product though). And to conclude, I love my color and perm and will definitely go back again for my next round of color and perm again.

Unbelievable Curls!

Service was impeccable from the moment I arrived at Jargo. The front desk staff was courteous and attentive. The honey oat snack bar served was a pleasant surprise! I had booked myself for a perm and colour. Rina IS AMAZING! She left me in awe with the lovely crown of curls at the end of the session. The curls are light yet bouncy, luxurious yet easy maintenance, soft yet texturized. To sum it up, the perm is BEAUTIFUL! Per job aside, Rina takes a personal interest in the health of her customer’s hair. She accurately assessed the condition of my hair and applied the right treatment and techniques for my hair type. Thanks for making me human again! I am looking forward to the next session with Rina and the Jargo team!

Attentive & Friendly stylist

My hairstylist was Hazel Shin. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my hair as I feel my hair is too dry and flat. Hazel suggest me to cut off split ends and damaging parts and cut layers. I followed her suggestion and try clinic perm. Although I wanted to rebond my roots, she said it will be too flat. So, we just do perm. I reached there 6:30pm after my work and finish around 8:50pm. Only she was left at the salon and no one else. Still she is very patient and teach me tips how to take care of my hair. The perm comes out quite natural too. Thumbs up for her.

Saved my damaged hair

Rina is simply fantastic. She really tries to understand my lifestyle and you can tell she cares about her client and hair. I initially wanted another volume rebonding but after consultation, Rina recommended that I let my damaged hair rest and do a tokio inkarami treatment instead. She also gave my 2 time hair a new hair colour and haircut. My hair feels so much better after Rina's magic touch. Definitely recommend Rina and Jargo and will be back!

Awesome!

I came to Jargo, after using the same stylist for 12 years. The deco of the salon was chic and to my liking. Hazel was assigned as i dont have any preferences for stylist for the 1st visit, after accessing my hair thinning condition she advise not to do any chemical or perm as it might break easily. No hard selling and pushy to services is something i like about it, looking forward for next visit..

Awesome haircut!

I really love my new haircut, 감사합니다 Rina씨 ! Rina really understood what i wanted - simple and easy manageable hair. However, i am a little disappointed with the hair color. I wanted something bright for CNY but its just ash color so nothing to rave about (see attached picture). Maybe due to CNY, the salon was busier then usual.

Nice Perm and Hair Cut

I enjoyed my experience at the salon. Esther was attentive and detailed. She explained to me what she recommended for my hair (as it was very dry) before proceeding. Thereafter, she taught me on how to manage my new hairdo. I have been getting compliments on my hair so I am very satisfied.

Airy Fairy

When I saw The Urban Aesthetics outlet in which Jargo Korean Hair Salon was located. First thought - nice minimalist feel, no blaring of cheesy music and most importantly, not packed with customers! Upon entering the salon, I was led to a corner seat. Was offered a drink. Hazel offered a blanket, which I gladly accepted (:

Before the actual hair cut began, Hazel led me to the hair wash area where I lay down to enjoy a shampoo and head massage by her. I like how the shampoo smelled, the amount of strength Hazel put into the massage and wash (not too hard but not too weak either) and how clean (yet not stripped) it felt right after. I also liked how it was done by Hazel and not another random hair assistant. As per the writeup as stated in BU's team description, Hazel's command of English was not the best but we did manage to keep up casual conversation.

I had saved photos of various bobs and lobs (long bobs) which I showed her while we communicated verbally and physically on how long and layered I wanted it to be. Utilizing a combination of textured and blunt cuts, Hazel was able to give volume to my thin fine hair with slight long layers and an overall one-length look with blunt ends. She did the cut with a center parting which allowed me to flip my hair to the left or to the right as I please. As I intend to do another hidden hair color in future, the one-length look would hide the colors more effectively as compared to previously where my hair was more layered.

Initially I wanted a lot more volume at the crown, but later decided against it with Hazel's advice. After the main shape was done, my hair was put to the blow dryer before Hazel did some final trimming. We ended with her teaching me how to blow dry my hair so that the ends would curve inwards, styling it and applying some kind of sweet smelling serum which I liked but forgot to ask what it was called.

My head felt so light and healthy after the hair cut that I couldn't help but bounce and swing my hair on the way home afterwards! Friends and family praised my new haircut, washing and blow drying my hair has become so fast and effortless while the long layers ensured that I would be able to wake up and leave the house in the morning with tame hair even without washing.

Throughout the session Hazel attended to me personally, which IMHO is the most desirable kind of service not just for the sustained and exclusive attention but also allows the hair designer to get familiarized with the client's hair condition at every stage of the process. During the pre-cut consultation I shared my hair concerns, existing hair care and maintenance regime as well as my desire for a fuss free low maintenance hairdo. Hazel managed to tick all the boxes for what I required from a good hair salon and designer (: At Jargo, haircuts are charged not according to hair length, but the seniority of the hair designer. The usual rate for women's hair cut with a Senior Hair Designer at Jargo is 69 SGD not inclusive of GST (Goods and Services Tax). My total damage came up to around 51.65 SGD after the 30% discount and adding of 7% GST. Yes, it may be possible to get a similar hair cut elsewhere for a cheaper price but considering how most hair salons charge by hair length and do not offer personalized services, I consider this price reasonable for my virgin experience here.

In overall, frugal fairy was happy with her haircut at Jargo and would recommend readers to give Hazel a chance to transform your hair as well as engage her in conversation so she can improve her English even more! If you strongly require someone who speaks very fluent English, why not consider the other hair designers at Jargo? Many of the other rave reviews were for their perming and coloring services, so that's something to look into too (: This is a summarized entry.

Pleasantly surprised

I came to Jargo with an open mind as it was my first time. The deco and ambience of the salon was top notch. There wasn’t any hardselling of any services (this won my heart entirely). My stylist, Esther was also very honest about what she can and cannot achieve for my hair. She constantly asked me if I was okay and if I needed anything throughout the session. I have been finding for a salon/stylist I could stick to, Jargo would be my first choice anyday.

Excellent service and great stylish

This is my first time visiting Jargo, and I chose this salon based on the good reviews on Beauty Undercover. From the appointment booking to the day of the appointment, it was a pleasant experience. The reception staff was very friendly and warm, making sure that I was comfortable throughout the whole time. I was attended by Director Rina, and I am very impressed with her skills and her confidence really made me at ease. Not to mention that she was really warm and friendly, which made the whole experience an excellent one. And needless to say, Rina gave me a beautiful new hairstyle which is easy to maintain as well. Thanks Jargo and I can’t wait to go back again.
