What customers say: 

“Enjoyed my experience with hairstylist Spencer. He provided an analysis to let me know which is the most suitable style and colour for my face shape and skin tone. He is friendly and professional. I had a lot of doubts as this is my first time doing a perm and he answered all the questions patiently. Happy with the result!” - Qian Hui

“Ryan is such a talented stylist. He always takes the time to listen to what I want and is never afraid to make suggestions. He's incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about his work. I can't recommend him enough! I super love my hair! The salon itself is also well-run, from the moment you walk in to when you walk out. All the staff are very kind and friendly!” - Angelique Medina

What customers say: 

“I have been hesitant to cut my hair very short! After considering it for so long I finally went to The Base Salon and got it cut. I would like to thank Tom for cutting and even choosing the hair colour for me. He is super professional and a cheerful hairstylist. No matter how busy he is, he has never failed me. I’m really happy with my new hairstyle. Once again thank you so much. I surely will come back again and recommend it to my friends.” - Jenny Wee

“My second time back at The Base Salon. Previously I had my hair done by hair stylist Aiden, where I had rebonding at the top and perming at the bottom and the curls lasted very long! Happy with his professional service and decided to come back again to get my hair done by him again! Price is reasonable too and I'm happy to be back again!” - Sherlyn Ng

What customers say: 

“I would like to applaud Nick Chong (Plaza Singapura outlet) for his excellent service and professionalism. He is always friendly and he takes pride in his work. After each haircut, I step out of the salon, looking prettier. Nick, thank you very much!” - Josephine Soo 

“My hair was done by a stylist named May at the Northpoint branch. I had really frizzy hair and whatever I did, it will still be the same. May was very professional. She ensured that I was not feeling cold and I felt comfortable at all times. She was kind. The service done by her was extremely pleasurable. Their teamwork was also good, another stylist even came to help her out with my hair. I will definitely come back here again for another treatment with her. The price is also very affordable.” - Shafiqah Diyanah

Google rating: 4.8/5 stars

What customers say: 

“It was my first experience at Harts but it will definitely not be my last. Special thanks to Zoe for providing appropriate recommendations during our consultation since it was my first time dyeing my hair. She definitely made the experience a very comfortable one as she chatted with me. Thank you Harts and team. Happy with the result and would recommend friends to get their hair done here due to the great service. Also, I liked how transparent Harts is with their pricing as their price list is listed on their website and Zoe also calculated the price before getting started to make sure that I'm okay with it.” - Ning S

“The first time I had my hair colored by Noel was six years ago. It won so many praises from family and friends, even my husband thought it suited me very well. I had tried other salons which had more competitive pricing but ultimately, their experience, skills and technique pales in comparison to Noel’s. A critical trait he possesses is the patience to listen and understand what the customer wants and effectively communicate and provide suitable recommendations. Then, the choice is yours to make. After today, he is still the best stylist I had my hair done by. Keep up the great job, Noel and team!” - JHazel T

Vintage Studio | VS Salon’s reviews

What customers say: 

“Been to Vintage Studio for a year, their service is always very good! Very polite and helpful staff. The hairdresser always never fail to surprise me and satisfy me! Highly recommended place to get your hair fixed.” - Reiko

“When I headed out to VS Salon@313 Somerset outlet, I greeted them with my ugly brass blonde hair and black roots. I was also unsure about what colour to go for next. So I asked for recommendations to cover my roots in a darker tone. The stylist Zen recommended a dark to light shade, which in another is also called the ombre. I haven’t done it before so I decided to give it a shot. The results turned out pleasantly well as expected, of course. It was so beautiful that I shared it on my social media and eventually got lots of praises from my colleagues, family and friends. The turn out goes well with my skin-tone as well because I’m pretty fair. Thumbs up for VS and their team!” - Kayleigh

Don’t want QB House or EC House? Try out Kojimaya, another wallet-friendly salon at $12 per cut by experienced senior hairstylists.

The main difference that sets Kojimaya apart from the rest of the express haircut salons is that they allow you to choose your stylist and do not impose a 10-minute time limit on your cut.

Google rating: 4.6/5 stars

“My hair was in need of a cut after almost a year of letting it grow out. The lady who cut my hair (didn’t get her name) was super gentle and did such a good job. I have wavy hair too and she shaped it superbly. My boyfriend regularly cuts his hair here and he always looks so fresh and neat after so I decided to give it a go too. They’re very patient and take good care to make sure your haircut comes out looking great. Highly recommended to come during off peak time. But even if you must wait for an hour I’d say it’s definitely worth the wait. For S$12, this place is 5-stars for sure. Will come back!” - Ant

“One of the best no-frill salons I've been to. Wanted a quick trim and layering as I had half an hour to spare in the area, and didn't expect to leave with a rather stylish cut. The female stylist took the time to understand my hair texture, and ran through with me step by step on how she intended to cut it, even dispensing hair care tips along the way. If I had to suggest an improvement, I'd have liked the aircon to be a little colder as it got a little warm under the salon cape. Otherwise, great stylists for S$12 (prepare your notes in advance as they don't accept cashless payment modes) and I'm sure I'll be back.” - Phyll Y.

9. Dragon & Phoenix Hair Dressing & Beauty Salon

This little-known neighbourhood salon is a little out of the way, considering its location in the HDB heartlands of Toa Payoh. Look out for its bright pink signage, and ask for Anne when you book for an appointment. The modest boutique doesn’t have much in the way of an online presence, but it’s said that customers flock from all corners of the island to patronise this beauty parlour.

“Been their customer for more than 15years. They are up to date with current hair colours and hairstyles for both women and men. They’re quality for sure, without charging ridiculous prices. So far, none of the colourists in Singapore can beat her technique and price.” - Noris K 

“Owner starts work at 8am which works wonders for early birds. Haircut was not bad.” - Rosemary Lim
