Postby jm83au » Wed, 02 Jul 2008 7:23 pm

Hi!

I am an aussie female moving to Sing. Does anybody know a good western hairdresser for western hair for colouring and cut. [NB- i am not racist, however, western hairdressers are my familiar with delaing with western hair].

THanks

ha ha no-one would think you were racist for asking the question! lots of us have been a bit nervous about finding a new hairdresser. and i know at least one person who had the hair equivalent of the texas chainsaw massacre when she had her first singapore colour done!

I go to Tony & Guy at Hareen Shopping Centre on Orchard. Chaya does my colour. I've had a couple of people do my cut - though my style is pretty simple. Texas chainsaw massacre girl goes there too. :D

I see Chaya at Toni & Guy for color as well. She's brilliant - got me back to my "natural" blonde 8-) (I go to Quester for cuts - but there are lots of good stylists there.)

New here but not to the Far East, had my first hair "hatchet" job in Bangkok 10yrs ago, I have the thick curly/frizzy hair that just loves these humid conditions :roll:

Quick question about the Toni and Guy stylist, does he straighten the hair before cutting? My wonderful UK stylist worked this way and always gave an amazing cut.

I have long straight hair so cant comment on how he would cut curly hair but my friend with corkscrew curls was a very happy client of his, maybe worth giving them a quick call or going in for a consultation with David and then see what you think? He definitely understands how our hair reacts to humidity and is very particular over the styles that he cuts. :-)

So David is actually British? I've had way too many disasters here in Singapore and still haven't found anyone I've been completely happy with after living here for 7 years. Can I ask how much he charges for a hair cut? Anyone get it highlighted as well here and how much does that cost?

Thanks

Hi , yes he is 100% british and I use Chaya there and shes brilliant! It depends on hair length i think and with the colour, how many colours she puts in and hair length again. David is not the cheapest boy in town but so far I have found after 2 years here that paying a little extra for something you are happy with is definitely worth it! Maybe worth giving them a call and explain hair type and they will tell you rough prices. It the T&G at the heeren if you do call them!

Well, i had my hair done by David at T&G and am very happy with the result and found him very helpful, giving advice on how to control the 'frizz' etc. I definately recommend him :D

thanks Gypsy Queen, he's a great stylist and no sales pressure to buy products or to make an appointment for 6/8 weeks he just said "you'll know when your ready to come in again". He didn't even ask where I'd been on holiday :D

Gypsy Queen...thanks for your recommendation. I desperately need a good hairdresser that can help me tame my frizzies and I think I’ll give David a go…
