Zinc Korean Hair Salon @ Millenia Walk

Where To Find Them

We hope to make every girl look and feel beautiful.

Nicky & Rany
Co-Founders for Zinc Salon

Overview

If you ask Agent G which Korean Hair Salon is a must-try in Singapore, you'll definitely find Zinc Korean Hair Salon at the top of her list.

Zinc is after all, the very first Korean salon to give her the kind of curls she LOVED so much that she couldn't stop perming afterwards. Since then, Agent G has tried many Korean salons in Singapore but thus far, Zinc is still the one she loves the most thanks to the definition, volume and lasting power she expects from her curls; her perms from Zinc last easily more than 6 months! 

It isn't just Agent G who loves their perms though; so many customers have walked through their doors and loved their signature perms and Korean-style haircuts so much at Millenia Walk

The Millenia Walk outlet is anchored by popular Korean stylists Rany and Justin established Korean stylist Nicky, the extremely skilled Korean Stylist who always manages to give Agent G the perm she has always dreamed about. A number of young and promising Korean stylists have also joined recently, giving Zinc an injection of new styles as they bring along knowledge of what's trending in Korea.

Regardless of which outlet you go, you'll be served by authentically Korean hairstylists who are really good at what they do. You don't have to worry about miscommunication as many of anchor stylists here have been in Singapore for a number of years and therefore speak fluent English / Singlish. 

Stylist team aside, another reason that keeps Zinc ahead of other salons in terms of results is their perm lotions. They themselves bring in exclusive perm lotions directly from Korea, which is why the perms that come from Zinc look different from other salons. But beyond that, Zinc always keeps ahead of latest trends and have also brought in top-of-the-line Paimore machine that creates very bouncy natural curls as well as other hair technologies that can make customer curls look better.

Prices here are however not the lowest. While their haircuts are pretty value-for-money, the perms can cost quite a bit. So do prepare to save up if you're keen to get a gorgeous perm from Zinc! 

Overall, a Korean hair salon we are personally confident can deliver the quality haircut and curls that  you're looking for!

Korean Perm

Review for Nicky

It was recommended that the perm is good at this salon and went for a try. However, after wash, the hair become messy and does not give the nice hair curl that was supposed to be despite i put serum and blow dry it. It was disappointing actually.

Ok hair cut, terrible service

Went there for a hair cut as my friend had a rather pretty hair cut by Justin the previous time she was there. However, I arrived and was left alone on a lukewarm seat for around 15 mins. It was extremely messy with no place to put my bag and hairdryers mixed with wires haphazardly placed on the floor. I was then escorted to have my hair washed. Even though I reminded the hairstylist not to touch my ears repeatedly as I have a new helix piercing, the person who washed my hair was still extremely rough and even soaped my ears despite my cries of pain. My ears were left with soap which leaves the helix prone to infection. The haircut was rather disappointing as I hoped for a refreshing look but ended up looking more messy.

Thank you Jacob!

Jacob is friendly, thoughtful and skilled. I didn't really like my previous cut at another salon. He was quick to understand what I wanted, gave good advice and reshaped my hair beautifully. He has a keen eye for aesthetics and balance. He is also meticulous and would not have let me leave the salon until both of us are satisfied ;)

Terrible Services

Visited 2 times for haircut with Justin. The haircut experience was good. But got the TERRIBLE Experience with UNTRAINED Assistant during hair wash. The first-time visit on 21 Jun, during the hair wash the UNTRAINED assistant, water splashed on my face, I thought is accidentally, so didn’t feedback. The second visit on 2 Aug, after the hair cut, the same UNTRAINED assistant was assigned to help me wash hair, the same incident happens, the water splashes on my face again. This tells me the assistant was not trained as not the first time. The same UNTRAINED assistant is also taking a quite Long time to dry off my hair with a hairdryer and suddenly ask if I want to apply wax on my hair. I’m surprised and shocked that the UNTRAINED assistant does my hairstyling and is a terrible hairstylist. Although My stylist Justin has redone the hairstyling, this is still not acceptable for me as I expect my stylist will do the hairstyling. I’m expecting Justin will explain to me, but he keeps silent on this. Quite disappointed that he does not bother to explain. With these 2 bad and terrible experiences, I’m very very disappointed with Zinc Hair salon, as they allow the UNTRAINED assistant to handle customer’s hair.

Recommend

For Korean female, finding a good hair salon is super important since Singapore is always hot and humid - not easy to manage stylish hair. I’ve tried so many Korean hair salons in Singapore, but so far Zinc is my favorite. My stylist, Rose is very detail oriented and pays special attention to my hair. She knows what is the best for me. She even offers practical advice and suggestion whenever I change my hair style. I can recommend her especially for those who are thinking to change hair style.

Rose at Zinc's Millenia Walk branch is one of the top stylists I have worked with, on par with the best in Seoul, Tokyo and New York.

Compliment

I had been finding salons for 20 years and tried many different stylists like Shunji and others etc... Then I met Rose from Zinc. She was attentive and and good judgment of hair colours and know what’s suitable for her clients. She also have initiative and good intuition for styling of hair. I have never meet any Stylists that can create a good hair style for men so well. I’m very satisfied and delighted with her skills and service. Also the salon have good assistant like Lynn who help to make the whole experience wonderful. On the overall Zinc salon is fantastic deserve an A star rating.

Pleasant Visits

Decided to visit Zinc@OrchardCentral after much contemplation. And it was really an awesome experience. Chan ensured that I feel welcomed every visit. He is friendly & his skills are just great. Despite our language barrier, he tries his best to understand our needs, making sure every details are well communicated. So much patience & effort!?? I always leave feeling contented & more confident with my haircut. Thank you Chan!☺️

Love my perm

Tried their perming service and was attended by Yui. She is titled with Junior Stylist but I think she really did a good job no second to Senior or even Director. My perm is super nice and easy to maintain as you can see from the pic, bouncy and shiny. Yui is quite attentive and will explain everything that she’s going to do in the next step which is assuring too. On top of all these, I think she has a good sense of beauty and style, which is crucial for perming since you don’t want to look like Ajuma in the end. Overall good experience, will recommend her if you want to try perming. One thing regarding the salon’s environment:I feel like the air conditioner is freezing cold. Maybe Singaporeans are quite used to it...? But definitely not me. During whole process I felt like I was cold like hell even after they provided me with the blanket. But again I do feel the same at most shopping malls in Singapore......So if you are like me maybe it’s better to wear long sleeves to go there.

Men’s perm & haircut

I went there for haircut and Jacob recommended me to do Perm for my hair type. My original hair is very straight and flat . At first I was worried because I really hate curly hair . But he said that it doesn’t cause my hair to be too curly and only give enough wave to get volume . So I decided to do perm coz I wanted volume for my flat hair . Overall result is amazing and he does his work perfectly. He nailed it . ??

Grateful customer

I enjoy walking into the salon because I know it’s going to be a comfortable experience. No hard selling and Chan genuinely gives me suggestions for my hair. He listens to how I would like my hair to look and offers his advice and opinion. Prices can be high for certain services but I share about my budget and we discuss the best option which I appreciate. Occasionally he gets busy and an assistant or another stylist will take over for a while but he does his best to be present throughout the appointment.

Always a good haircut

I’ve been having my haircut with Chan for almost a year now. He has always delivered a good haircut that works for me. He takes the effort to communicate with you about the haircut. If your request such as cutting higher/shorter doesn’t really work in his opinion, he will patiently try to explain and I appreciate that

Hair Transformation @ Zinc, Orchard Central

It was my 1st time visiting an up-market hair salon and I must say, I wasn't disappointed! My stylist, Chan, took the time to check on my hair condition and recommend the various chemical treatments needed to achieve my desired hair-do :) He even showed an Ipad album filled with reference photos when recommending what services to get! I thought this was good effort in trying to overcome whatever language barrier there may be . I enjoyed that he was professional and knowledgable in his craft, and cared abt the state of my hair rather than pushing me to get services done in order to make money. (For example, to only colour my dark roots instead of entire head, to minimise hair damage) While the visit was expensive, as expected from higher end salons, the experience and end results would definitely push me to visit Zinc again ??

Impressed Returning Customer

I have been using Chan's service since 2018 and I have been impressed with each visit. He is attentive to details, and knows almost instantaneously what I want to do with my hair during my visits. This isn't to say that he is eager to please, as he also gives suggestions to me when he thinks that what I wish to do does not suit me totally. I have tried his excellent perming and cutting skills so far, and today, I am back to do colour and highlight. I have requested for a natural look with some movement, and I am totally pleased with the result.

10/10 will recommend!

I had my hair cut and permed by Yui and I was pleasantly surprised! Service was great from the moment you step into their salon. They provide you with a selection of biscuits and a cup of tea even before you start your haircut. Yui was really patient with my questions and I left it to her to decide what would be best for my hair. Left the salon with all smiles! I will be back again for sure.
