Hi Jim 9372
I read your September regarding your wife being a hair dresser. I am from the Uk as well and am desperately looking for someone to cut decent hair. Can you please email on aisha.dhewar@gmail.com
Look forward to it.

my family and i have recently moved to Singapore, we love it, although my wife is getting bored and wants to work. She is an English hairdresser with over 20yrs experience. Has run her own business for the last 12yr in the UK,she is undecided what to do. Is there enough business to open her own place or should she work in a hairdresser for a while and see if there is enough demand for her before going it alone?


We live in district 21,my wifes name is Claire and is sooo bored, if anybody is looking for a great stylist, please feel free to message.

Jim

Hairdresser in Singapore.

Hi to all expats in Singapore.
Like any countries in the world, there are good & bad hairdresser in Singapore. One way to find a good hairdresser is to talk to the hairdresser personally . Ask questions( abt your hair], then listen to his/her replies, does it make sense ,then you decide from there.
Another way is to scan through this forum, but do not take all posting for real, happy posting does not mean this salon /hairdresser suit you. Bad experience posting did not show the full picture either. for example, if the posting said : I/We when to that hairdresser many times , but never one time walk out happy. please , if someone can "went" many time to that particular salon, & still not happy, then in the first place he/she should talk to the hairdresser during the first visit. look guy , HAIRDDRESSER are just like DOCTOR, LAWYER, professional ...Through communication, solve problems, your hair problems......
CHEER !

Good hairdresser doesn't necessarily need to be expensive. I went to Vybe's Hairdresser at Bedok Central, good haircut but the waiting time can be ridiculously long. Do call before you drop by.

A few months back, I had a disappointing experience with one of the senior stylists at Trimmings who's supposedly good at cutting Caucasian hair . He was distracted as he was juggling several customers at a time and ended up cutting my hair way too short. Unhappy with the service and rather than posting a harsh review online, I contacted the owner of the salon with my feedback and was offered the same services (highlight & cut) as complimentary on my next visit. She understood that I would not be able to take her up on the offer for a few months as my hair grew very slowly. When the time came to make my booking, I confirmed it was 'complimentary cut & colour' over the phone, I was surprised when the salon manager told me on the day, as I was already sitting in the chair ready for the stylist, that I'd have to pay for the cut. No explanations why.
When I contacted the owner about it via email, I had no response. When I called her she said she mistakenly led me to believe the cut and highlights were complimentary. Her mistake.....but I had to pay for it.
That's customer service for you.

I've been going to Joey at Icon Shunji Matsuo (sp?) in 100AM. I've liked her cuts. I get basic trims but my hair is wavy/curly and she actually understands spring factor.

I've been wondering how much is an average price for highlights and a cut for long hair. I've now paid around 260 SGD at Robertson Quay?
