We want to bring the best of Japanese hairdressing: the style, the knowledge, the creativity, the quality and the service to Singapore at prices accessible to everyone!

Founders
of THREES Japanese Hair Salon

Overview

Sad about the closure of CLEO Japanese Hair Salon last year? Don't be.

A new Japanese hair salon has taken its place in The Central Clarke Quay... and this time, it's better, cheaper and more accessible!

The New Japanese Hair Salon is called THREES, the first overseas collaboration between Shine Hair, Miel Hair and Eight Hair Salon from Japan.

Best known for their creativity, energy, style, Threes aim to bring Japan's signature omotenashi hair experience to Singapore.

And it starts with its location. Located within Level 4 of The Central, this place is easily reachable yet relatively quiet, giving us the privacy and convenience we crave. The decor is far from being luxurious but is certainly easy on the eyes and distinctively  Japanese with a natural, woody feel.

The most important attraction for us though, is still the stylist team. As with many Japanese salons in Singapore, all the staff here are Japanese and they attend to your every need from start to finish without any hair assistants.

But what's special here is that the founding team consists of all Top Stylists back in Japan. This means that their skill is very good as they all enjoy a strong base of customers back at their salon. The salon manager Ken is especially notable given that he has worked with top artistes.

On top of their superior skill, their carefree, honest and genuine personality make it very easy for us to connect with them on a personal basis. Instead of being suited up like some other salons, the Japanese stylists here dress more casually and are more proactive to chat with you. Coming here therefore feels more like coming to a friend's place, one that's inviting and comfortable.

Add their everyday low price to the highly experienced English-speaking stylist team and you've got a Japanese salon you'll find easy to come by regularly. At just $170 for haircut and colour BEFORE any promotions, this price is possibly lower than most local salons you'll find in Singapore.

For those who enjoy getting pampered at a Japanese salon, THREES is definitely one of the first few places we would highly recommend you to try for a value-for-money Japanese hair experience!

My hairstylist, Chie's cut is not only skillful, she thought through well based on my hair texture, volume and look. I have full confidence to leave her to decide what works best for me. Thanks. (Review not yet verified)

Excellent work

Review for Shota Yane

I did highlights on my partially twice-bleached hair. It was done beautifully, and my hair's in good condition. Shota was very careful with my hair and he explained the process. He generally understood me though I don't speak Japanese. His wave styling was also excellent – others thought I had received a permanent perm. The dyes/bleach/shampoo used at this salon don't leave an overpowering scent. Great work, and great service! (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

First Time at Threes Hair Salon

Review for Ken

Found Ken on Instagram and decided to give it a try. He was super meticulous while touching up my roots and made sure to do it off scalp. I’ve bleached my hair many times and it was the first time it didn’t hurt! Very patient and everyone was really friendly and helpful. I’m satisfied with the service and outcome of my hair. Will definitely be back. (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

Review for Ken

Chanced upon their Instagram post 1 year ago and glad I did! My hair stylist Ken (who is also the manager) did my hair bleach & color so meticulously that it always attracted a lot of attention from the passerby after each session! The hair products in his salon are considered the quite high end and really protect my hair even after bleaching! Highly recommended to come for your hair service, especially hair coloring! Ken is the one who is the master in that field! (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

Excellent skills and service

Enjoyed my first visit. Shota was my hairstylist. He is friendly and professional. Very good scissor skills and he works fast too. I had a classic bob cut, wash and blow dry within an hour. The after feel is light and airy, and yet with good volume. Very easy to maintain. Friends commented that the hairstyle suits me. There was a bit of “lost in translation” moments. But despite him being new in Singapore, he makes his best effort to understand what the customer wants. Keep it up with English learning and hope you enjoy your stay in Singapore!

NICE EXPERIENCE, TRUSTWORTHY

Review for Ken

This is a great go-to-saloon to get regular fixes for my hair, especially after visiting overpriced salons and get tied down to packages for years. Professional hair stylists from Japan, no hard selling, not highly priced, discounts for milestone returning customers. Need to make bookings and avoid last minute cancellations as they can get full bookings. (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)

Great service by Ken

Review for Ken

The service was really good and my hair stylist, KEN made sure to capture all my needs and concerns during the initial 'consultation'. Ken is very attentive and gives good advice as well. Usually I will show him some photos of the hair style I want and then leave it to him to perform his ‘magic’ on my hair. Highly recommended if you want to experience authentic Japanese hair cut/color/bleach/balayage. (Review not yet verified)

Hair-do

Review for Chie

It has been a wonderful experience since I started my hair-do at Threes. I like Chie in particular because she is the only person who can manage my hair. For umpteen years, I find it hard to find a hairstylist who is able to handle my thick, dry and frizzy. She has successfully helped me for my hair now is soft and healthy. Her cut is well thought through given the shape of my head and the thickness of my hair. In a similar way, the soft rebonding was done with care to ensure that it doesn't damage my hair. For anyone who has thick, dry and frizzy or natural curl hair, this is the place to come! The staff were also all polite and friendly. ..................................................................................................................................................(Review not yet verified)

Advante rebonding and hair cut

Review for Meiko

This is my second rebonding experience with the salon, first was Fibre Flex rebonding and hair cut. I did colouring here previously too. I really like the results of the rebonding done here and I had several done before with other Japanese salons (with Japanese stylists), so why I am returning to the salon. Also, I somehow find the timing required for rebonding at Japanese salon to be slightly shorter than other regular salons that I been to many years ago. I rarely do colouring as I personally limit the frequency of chemical based work done on my hair. But as I liked the results I had previously so had scheduled one again this year. The stylist I have today is Meiko, different from my previous visits, who has a better command of English so communication was easier. I requested for a bob (as final decision) which Meiko cut with good proportions and paired the rebonding with the cut , where she curled my ends to frame my face a little. She clearly detected that I am looking for something low maintenance when I communicated my usual styles and sought suggestions from her, although I didn't explicitly spell it out and of which is lovely! She recommended Advante over Fibre Flex as it is new but better, both are of same pricing. The treatment steps in Advante smells really lovely so that is a plus. The reason for preferring Japanese salons is the consistency that I get, where even hair trimming could get quite wrong when done at big brand names but non Japanese ones. Also, they tend to use good quality chemicals that achieve long lasting results and yet doesn't damage your hair nor has that off-putting chemical scent.

Do not recommend. Money wasted

I went for highlight today and opted for 2 types of treatments - scalp (because i tend to have itchy scalp) and milbon linkage (as suggested by stylist Tomo). I do not understand why she's in such a rush to wash off after applying the hair dye for just 10 mins. How long can the colour last in this case?? No wonder the colour turn out so dark. It looks like i did not highlight my hair at all. I'm sure the colour will be gone within a few weeks' time. As for the 2 treatments, she AGAIN rinsed it off, this time round about 5 mins after application. How is this considered treatment? She has the patience to wait. I have no idea why is she in such a rush. Bad service! I want the salon to address on my above concerns. I seriously paid over $200+ for nothing.

Dear Joy,


Thank you for visiting us.
We are truly sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience with us.

Sorry for the lack of explanation
The color once applied may change over time, but we would like to guarantee that it will not get darker anymore.
If you want to make the color brighter, bleaching is necessary. However I did not go ahead with the bleach as you mentioned you didn’t want to damage your hair further.
It may seem that the time taken is shorter than normal but that’s probably because no bleach was done.

Regardless we are sorry to hear that the hair colour was too dark for your liking. We would therefore like to invite you back to the salon to see what we can do to help you achieve your desired colour.

Once again, we are very sorry that we are not able to fulfill your expectations this time around. But we promise that we will do our best and show you an improved version of Threes Japanese Hair Salon the next time you visit.

Warm regards
Team Threes Japanese Hair Salon

Hair Bleaching

Review for Ken

I love that Threes is completely upfront about its prices which are very reasonable. While Ken was not very fluent in English, he was able to understand me and achieve the blonde hair colour I wanted, with my hair remaining in very good condition despite bleaching it twice. Both Ken and his hair assistant were extremely meticulous and thorough in their work which took about 7 hours; they are very skilled at what they do! Nevertheless, it would be much appreciated if their command of spoken English improves so that greater communication can take place.

Head Stylist: "I don't have time"

Review for Ken

had booked an appointment with ken after several tries. when I arrived for the appointment, he didnt have time to colour my hair that day after full 10 mins of all the back and forth on deciding on the colouring and highlighting. I left the salon without my hair dyed at all. he wasn't proficient in English at all and I had to repeat myself several times; any customer who isn't certain whether the stylist fully understands them wouldn't be comfortable having their hair newly coloured by him/her.

Dear Elijah
Thank you for visiting us. We are truly sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience with us.
As his command of English is admittedly weaker, Ken was not able to express himself as politely and eloquently as he would like. 
This is however no excuse for bad service: we would be angry too if we were in your shoes. 
Hence Ken would like to sincerely apologise for disappointing and not being able to attend you that day. 
He promises to be more diligent in his English language classes and hope that he will have a chance to serve you again in the future.
In the meantime, we will also review the consultation process with customers to see how we can use more visual aids to better understand what customers are looking for.

Once again, we are very sorry that we are not able to fulfill your expectations this time around. But we promise that we will do our best and show you an improved version of Threes Japanese Hair Salon the next time you visit.
