Do you desire a complete hair transformation or is a minor haircut enough for you?
No matter your preference, we’ve scoured the entire island to present you with the top hair salons in Singapore today! Our comprehensive list includes their contact information and the advantages and disadvantages of each salon.
1. Chez Vous
Website | 391 Orchard Road, Ngee Ann City Podium, #05-05, Singapore 238872 | +65-6732-9388
Chez Vous has been recognized as a top innovator in professional hair services by numerous media outlets. The salon only allows Hair Directors, each with at least 12 years of experience, to work there. Apparently, the salon has an intense recruitment exam where only one out of every 30 applicants pass, leading to a team of exceptional hair experts. This may be why the salon has such a great reputation in Singapore and receives many positive reviews.
Chez Vous not only curates and procures over 100 different product brands annually but also has an in-house R&D team that develops new treatments and techniques to address different hair concerns for women. Their expertise has resulted in many pioneering products and services such as Hair Botox & Fillers, Sugar Hair Lamination, and Hair Defence Technology.
In 2019, Chez Vous launched a second outlet called Chez Vous: HideAway, which offers guests a unique hair salon experience. The salon provides more than just hair services, offering a range of value-added spa-like touches in an Instagram-worthy setting. The salon even has a complimentary lounge for guests to relax in before their appointment.
Chez Vous: HideAway has won the hearts of many customers with its no-hard-selling, no-hidden-charges, and no-pushy-packages philosophy. To ensure each guest receives optimal attention, each associate director only takes up to five appointments per day. With over 50 hair awards and multiple nominations for the best hair salon in Singapore for haircuts, colours, perms, and treatments, it’s no wonder that many notable people in Singapore are regular patrons.
2. Walking On Sunshine
Website | 181 Orchard Road, #03-07 Orchard Central, Singapore 238896 | +65-8877-8800
When it comes to Instagram-worthy hair salons in Singapore, Walking on Sunshine easily tops the list!
Despite its central Orchard location, Walking on Sunshine feels like an oasis amidst the urban jungle with plenty of flowers and plants greeting you as soon as you enter.
With a large team of stylists who offer a variety of services like haircuts, colouring, and treatments, the salon even provides free consultations to help you decide which service to choose. However, it’s best to book an appointment in advance due to the high demand, even on weekdays.
But the best part of Walking on Sunshine? They have an in-house café where you can enjoy a quick snack or cup of coffee during your hair treatment. You can even head to their café and bar section after your appointment to enjoy a meal with friends.
3. Hair Studio Flamingo
Website | 7 Neil Road, Singapore 088807 | +65-8726-2116
If you want a low-maintenance hairstyle, Hair Studio Flamingo is a perfect choice! Their experienced Japanese stylists will select the best style to complement your facial structure.
True to the Marie Kondo style, their salons are minimalist with green accents. Although refreshments are temporarily on hold, they are usually served to clients.
Both branches are not open 7 days a week, but they have two locations to choose from in case your preferred branch is closed. They also accommodate last-minute appointments, and you can check their stylists’ availability on their Facebook page for daily updates.
On weekends, the salon is typically busy, and some stylists like Aki are in high demand. To ensure you get your preferred stylist, we recommend booking at least a week ahead.
4. Be Salon
Website | 9 Raffles Boulevard, Millenia Walk, #02-19, Singapore 039596 | +65-6899-3667
Be Salon is a highly-rated hair salon, known for its exceptional hair colouring services. Their skilled stylists can create a range of looks, from bold and bright colours to more subtle hues. Be sure to consider Be Salon if you’re searching for a salon to handle your hair colouring needs.
You can check their website for a price list, or book a complimentary consultation for personalized advice on what service is right for you. Additionally, they offer a membership reward program that includes discounts, free products, and special birthday month privileges. Anyone can apply for standard membership, with additional tiers available.
While the salon is very popular and receives many positive reviews, expect it to be busy, especially on weekends. However, they do offer extended hours, closing at 9:00 pm every day of the week to accommodate those with busy schedules.
5. Picasso Hair Studio
Website | 1 Goldhill Plaza, #01-49, Singapore 308899 | +65-6224-0221
Picasso Hair Studio prides itself on providing clients with artistic and contemporary hairstyles, just like its namesake.
Their team of award-winning stylists can assist you with various hair services such as perms and hair colouring.
In contrast to other salons, where you may only learn about your stylist on the day of your appointment, Picasso Hair Studio lets you read about their profiles on their website so you can learn more about their specialities before coming in for your free consultation. This way, you can even request your choice of stylist in advance.
We also appreciate that they have two salon locations in the heart of the city to cater to a wide range of clients. Additionally, they open early on weekends, making it easier to avoid the afternoon weekend rush. So if you want to secure your preferred stylist, we suggest going early.
6. Vintage Studio
Website | Multiple Locations | Multiple Contacts
Vintage Studio has become a popular choice among Singaporeans, with several salons conveniently located across the island, including inside malls and within walking distance from MRT stations.
Their wide range of services is offered at reasonable prices by a team of skilled stylists who can help you achieve your desired hairstyle without breaking the bank. In fact, they have some of the most affordable rates on our list.
For those who prefer privacy during their service, some branches have a dedicated VIP area with massage chairs for a more comfortable and relaxed experience. Complimentary light refreshments are also available during treatments, and movie screenings provide entertainment.
The only potential drawback is the absence of stylist profiles on their website, which may disappoint first-time customers. Additionally, they do not typically offer free consultations, but their staff can still advise you on the most suitable treatment for your hair if you need assistance.
Website | 38A Lorong Mambong, Holland Village, Singapore 277694 | +65-6463-3651
Make sure to stop by Art-Noise when you’re in Holland Village. It’s a Japanese salon that has recently made its way to Singapore.
Art-Noise is the go-to salon if you’re after a Japanese-inspired hairstyle. In addition, they specialize in hair treatments and spas using gentle blends of Japanese products that won’t harm your hair.
One unique thing about Art-Noise is that they use their own shampoo mix made of natural ingredients and are environmentally conscious.
The salon doesn’t have a stylist hierarchy, so no matter who you choose, haircuts are priced the same. You can easily view their schedule and availability on their website since they only have three stylists.
However, even for students and children, haircuts are somewhat expensive.
8. Aqua Hair
Website | 402 Orchard Road, #03-16 Delfi Orchard, Singapore 238876 | +65-6732-8011
If you’re a fan of K-dramas, you’ll be thrilled to know that Aqua Hair offers Korean-inspired hairstyles with the help of their skilled stylists. Their senior hair stylists have extensive experience servicing both celebrities and regular people in Seoul, which you can read more about on their website.
Aqua Hair also stands out for its commitment to supporting local businesses and less fortunate families affected by the pandemic. By purchasing their “hair-care packs,” you can both look good and do good. For example, a hair-care pack may include a perm, a haircut, and hair treatment, along with a donation of 5 packets of warm food to a less fortunate family purchased from local hawkers.
Additionally, you can share the pack with a friend, making it perfect for an afternoon bonding session. While Aqua Hair’s prices may be higher than average, the chance to help others while pampering yourself is a unique and worthwhile opportunity.
Website | 402 Orchard Road, #02-11/14, Delfi Orchard, Singapore 238876 | +65-9040-8004
Are you in need of a salon that caters to Caucasian hair? Look no further than Visage, where the owner and artistic director Dominic can help you out.
This Balinese-themed salon, located in the heart of CBD and overlooking Orchard Road, has many long-term clients, particularly ex-pats and Caucasians.
In addition to their hairdressing services, Visage also offers a full range of beauty services that specialize in Caucasian skin, including facials, waxing, and massages.
It’s important to note that the salon can only accommodate up to 7 clients at a time and strictly accepts clients by appointment only. Unfortunately, walk-ins are not accepted. Also, the salon is closed on Sundays. So if you plan to visit on a Saturday, it’s best to book an appointment ahead of time to avoid long waits.
10. Project Hair
Website | 83 East Coast Road, Singapore S428786 | +65-6344-1636
At Project Hair, you won’t encounter pushy stylists trying to sell you products or packages. They take customer satisfaction seriously.
Their master stylist can provide a women’s haircut for a reasonable price of $52, which is lower than most salons. Rates can be found online, so no need to worry about hidden fees.
While the complimentary tea service with Clipper Tea and homemade cookies is temporarily unavailable due to the pandemic, they will resume this once restrictions are lifted. You may even be lucky enough to receive a cupcake or pastry of the day.
Project Nails, their sister company, is conveniently located within their salon. This is a great option if you need additional services while at the salon for extended periods of time.
