The best hair salons in Singapore. If there’s one question we are constantly asked at Vanilla Luxury, it’s on where to go for the best haircuts, hair colour and hair services in Singapore. Whether it's a refresher of a haircut, a glam new hair colour or K-drama worthy perm, the quest for the best hair salons in the city, seems never-ending.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourites that offer not only the best hair services on the red dot but are also a treat to sit and experience an afternoon at. Make note, take that appointment and get ready to be spoilt at one of the best hair salons in Singapore.
Often labelled as one of the leading luxury hair salons in Singapore, Chez Vous has always been on the top hair service innovation game. Since their inception in 1995, Chez Vous has distinguished itself with dedicated service, bespoke hair treatments and an unparalleled level of professional expertise – courtesy of the “Only Hair Directors Allowed” policy –where all stylists have either 12 years’ experience or are exceptionally skilled.
Rumour has it that Chez Vous has one of the most gruelling recruitment processes in the industry, where only 1 out of 30 applicants is employed, ensuring the quality of hair experts on their panel, remains unparalleled. The hair salon brand has also consistently topped the list of the most positively-reviewed and top-rated hair salons online, in Singapore.
Well-known for its novel ‘Fix You Programme’, Chez Vous offers assistance to fix anyone’s hair mismanaged by other hair salons in Singapore (subjected to availability), free of cost. To many Caucasian Expats in Singapore, Chez Vous’ existence is a blessing to many as the salon has a team of Caucasian Hair Specialists that specialise in treating, colouring and cutting Caucasian hair – a feat not many Asian salons can achieve.
While Chez Vous offers a range of top-class haircuts, hair colour and hair treatments, their soon to be launched Anti-damage Movement Perm is one to keep your eyes peeled for! This brand-new perm technique and technology developed by Chez Vous creates movement and airiness in the hair while promoting softness, hydration and repair, all at once! This perm method produces trendy and ‘lazy’ waves as opposed to the rather out-dated well-coiffed, pageant-like curls. Best suited for women who want to achieve an effortless girl-next-door look, the anti-damage technology allows customers to get movement and waves without noticeable damage, dryness and dullness that comes with conventional perm procedures. 3 Years in the making, this groundbreaking Anti-Damage Movement Perm will arrive in November 2020. Developed by Chez Vous and exclusive only to Chez Vous.

Since its inception in 1994, hair experts at Kimage have been helping amplify personalities on the red dot, through the craft of hairdressing. With a hairdressing school and 10 outlets spread island-wide, Kimage has established itself as one of the best hair salons in Singapore for everything that your mane or scalp may need. Whether it’s their award-winning hair colour service, treatments, rebonding, perms or a basic haircut, know that an appointment at Kimage will leave you thoroughly pampered and looking forward to your next one.
We love how easy Kimage is on the pocket too! Should you be looking to stretch those dollars, simply choose one of their junior stylists who come with about a year’s experience in hairdressing and offer superior skill set at wallet-friendly prices. Kimage are also extremely passionate about scalp health and are continuously growing their portfolio of healthy hair and scalp treatments. Take their Haircut + Fusio Scrub service as an example.
Just as the skin on the rest of the body, the scalp is seriously affected by any number of biological and environmental conditions. Dirt, oil, sweat and pollutants can clog up the scalp, seriously depleting its ability to grow healthy hair. Fusio Scrub is designed to cleanse and exfoliate, freeing the scalp from deeply encrusted impurities and dead cells, revealing a fresh new surface for radiant hair to take root. This is a bespoke salon scrub combined with essential oils, where your hairdresser freshly blends the scrub in front of you - an absolute first-of-its-kind, unique in-salon cleansing treatment
The result is not only a balanced scalp that feels great, but totally revived hair with renewed shine and bounce.
Vanilla Luxury readers get $10 off with the discount code "VL10" when purchased online. Not valid for services by the Junior Stylists. Valid till end of Sept. Service voucher is valid for 30 days from date of purchase.
