I highly recommend Gene Sim from Hairfolio. 39 Stamford Road #01-11 Stamford House.

Get off at City Hall MRT. Go out exit B.

Gene did a fantastic job on my hair which is very fine and difficult to manage.

I recently tried Scarlet from Kimage TP branch. She's really nice and very friendly, gave me a wash and cut. I asked to put my parting to the right a bit and for a side fringe. After the wash and blow, I couldn't stop looking at myself in the mirror, I haven't loved my hairstyle like that in a long time! She's not pushy, won't try to sell you products which is what I really like.

The downside is that Kimage is pretty ex, overall it cost me $60+, but I think it's pretty worth it as Kimage is pretty well known brand. The bad thing about Scarlet is she didn't really give me any suggestions how I should do my hair, she just followed what I said. But that may be a plus point for people who know what they want. :)

I have had many a hair disaster in Singapore until I found Allison who is fantastic. She works out of a salon @ Katong Mall on the east coast by appointment only. Allison's mobile is 90178407 and she also advertises in Expat Living.

Finding a hairdresser is something I'm terrified of!!

I have a treasure who has been cutting and colouring my hair for about the last 10 years!

I'm of Chinese origin so fair enough, they should be plenty used to cutting my type of hair which in the UK has always been a struggle and scary time!

However, when I look around me, in Singapore, I virtually never see someone walk past who makes me go "oh wow! fabulous haircut". Hairstyles seem to go from the conventionally boring to waay out avant garde (for the young) with nothing in between.

I suppose in the UK when one moves to a new place, the names Toni and Guy, Aveda etc usually indicate that the salon should be "OK" - although I've had some pretty boring haircuts at both!

I have ash blonde highlights (to hide the grey :wink: ) - all the orientals I ever see in singapore with highlights see to suffer from the all too common problem of having orange hair (and most of them seem to be in their teens/early 20s).

I'm going to have my highlights done just before I go, but in reality they will need doing in another 3 months!

Hmm, seems like many of you go to local brands that cost a bomb.

No offense though =)

I would like to recommend my hairdresser, his name is Stanley. His salon is nothing fancy though, its a heartland salon tucked in one of AMK's HDB blocks.

It costs about S$15 per haircut, he provides real tender loving care to your locks, really worth the price for the effort he puts in, and the finished haircut. He is able to recommend good hairstyles based on your face shape and preferred type of dressing.

He offers other services such as rebonding, highlights, dye etc, but as of yet I have only gone for haircuts as I dont see the need to do anything else to my hair.

The address is
Blk 421 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10 (S)560421

Thanks Bubbybee. I think I will give your hairdresser a go when I get to Singapore. I am not a fan of designer salons either as I had an awful experience in Toni and Guy in London. It was so bad, I almost cried.

Lori: Are you living in London now? I go to a Japanese salon near Marlybone which is really good. They do nice highlights too.
