Hi, I found a great hairdresser. Her name is Pauline and she works out of NK in Parkway Parade. She worked in London for a while and she is the first Asian I have found to do my hair "western" style. She did highlights on me recently and they are superb. Her blow dry is fantastic too, :)

I tried Passion with David Gan. He is very good but very pricey. He charges S$309 per cut/trim.

I go to a lovely place for hair and beauty called Mahogany on Killiney Road just outside Somerset MRT... Round the corner from the Dubliner too which is great on a Saturday for lunch....

Try Toni & Guy at The Heeren. David Mercer does a fantastic cut & he's British, so very skilled with Western hair.

Hi,
I just went from hair about 12 inches long to a very short style! I saw Jo at Toni & Guy in Holland Village and she was AMAZING! SHe listened (simple know but very rare in my expereince here) and she explained each step to me when she cut it. I am so very happy with the cut and the colour too that I recommend her 200%

Give her a try, she is brilliant!

:D M :D

There's a good hairdresser that charges reasonabe price as well. No point paying exhorbitant prices for a haircut here. You could go to Sammy Salon at Aljunied. The hairstylists are extremely skilful and professional. Best of all, there are a few stylist who specialises in modern hairstyles. Go check it out.

I was just going to post this same question. I went to 2 hair saloons around Orchard Rd and I was most disappointed. Im mixed raced and have naturally wavy hair. They were not very good at handling my hair even for a normal wash and blow. I'll try Tony & Guy I guess...

Bad blonde hair experience in Singapore!!!

Postby newtotown » Tue, 14 Aug 2007 1:11 pm

have blonde hair and I was deperate for a touch up so I went to Esprite who charged me a fortune $450 for the director to do my hair.

Firstly he never even applied the colour or styled it, he has a junior do it who took hours, after that they applied a $150 treatment which I never knew about and they never asked me if I wanted it. Then for the final outcome they turned my hair bright orange. I was devastated. He knew I was unhappy as I refused to pay the full amount but he never offered to fix it and I felt uneasy about asking.

My saviour is Jackey Tan from Jeric Reds salon in Suntec City Mall on 6337-7811. He actually listened to me and gave me a full consultation, applied the colour himself and charged me a fraction of the cost. He even styled it with GHD style straighteners to give it some curls and the result was what I had initially asked for. I can't recommend him high enough!

I really hope this helps.

hope this help mates... usually refer my colleagues or expat friends to S4H at paragon, affordable and i guess friendly enough to handle the hair styling for us. they seem to like the service there...
Cheers,

David from Toni & Guy is truly amazing I have to say.. he saved my hair from a hack job from one of the other senior stylists there and what he did was incredible but this was for free luckily as i think he is slightly more expensive. Try Alexandre Casta on Aliwal street as a lot of my blonde friends go there and are very happy with blonde - not yellow!- hair.

Ok I take back my earlier comments about Mahogany after disasterous hair colouring.... Thanks for the comments about Toni & Guy - are they used to Caucasian hair though? Some places over here colour the hair and dont even check it, dont do the right colour mix and to be honest charge a fortune for a half assed job! end of rant... At the moment I wait til I am back in the UK to get hair cut and coloured, so until i find a good one here then I remain sceptical.... No ending up with funny coloured hair again!
