Make sure you have your own hair done in a wacky way - shows you have talent :)

Hi there,

Please keep in mind that in Singapore there are now a lot of "budget" hairdressers (QB house & EC house), only charging $10/haircut and theyre pretty decent cuts. If you think your hairsalon can compete with them, good luck. If you're very qualified and have lots of exp cutting celebrity hairs then you may want to appeal to the more expensive market out there. But you'd better be really good!

Just to add in, you forgotten about those Malay Barber Shop with charge only $6-$8 per cut. ^^

But actually all got different market demand. :wink:
