“The most amazing thing about hairdressing is the ability to transform a regular person to someone extraordinary. By breaking traditional hairdressing conventions and continually pushing the boundaries of hairdressing, I want as many people as possible to experience the power of this transformation.”

You may be forgiven if you are not in the hairdressing industry. But if you are, there is no reason why you wouldn’t have heard of Gary Chew, the Singaporean hairdresser who regularly rubs shoulders with the top 1% of hairdressers in the world and was previously highly sought after by models and celebrities like Alex 杜德伟, 阿牛, Irene Ang and even Zoe Tay. Instead of keeping all the glory to himself to safeguard his position as one of Singapore’s top hairdressers, Gary had a much bigger ambition:

To make hairdressing a profession to be respected in Singapore.

Salon Vim was thus born. In old English, Vim means turning Passion into Action. By continuously sharing what he learned from top hairstylists in skills and knowledge with the group of passionate Salon Vim stylists, all of whom are veracious about upgrading themselves, Gary has gradually nurtured a group of highly competent and professional hairstylists who can confidently stand their own against top hairstylists of the world.

Beyond raising the skill level of Vim stylists, Gary has also introduced and popularized many hairdressing trends to Singapore, including the now-still-popular ombre and vibrant hair colour trend, direct perm and now texture control. Therefore you can be sure that you are ahead of the trends if you choose to do your hair at Salon Vim!

For those who are willing to wait a little longer to be put on Gary’s often-packed appointment book, he is also probably the most-value-for-money Michelin-star-quality Singaporean hairdresser you are ever going to get. You are after all getting your hair done by someone who has trained directly under top stylists such as British Celebrity Hairdresser Trevor Sorbie (Creator of the Wedge Haircut and a Four-Time British Hairdresser of the Year) and calls top stylists like Cha Hong and Kan Chong Woo as friends. We are particularly impressed with his Colour Blocking, a new colour technique he has created that makes vibrant hair colours look a lot more classy!

Well, you’ve got to see and experience it for yourself to know what we are talking about!
