A good haircut is akin to an art, and the hairstylists who give them are artists in their own right. Perfectly framing your features to bring out the best in them while working to minimise your flaws, a good haircut can make or break.
Seeing how important your hair can be to the impression you’re looking to make, it makes sense then that’d you’d want somebody who knows what they’re doing. If you’re in Singapore, then you’re in luck because there are a plethora of good hair salons that know the ins and outs of hairstyling.
Whether you’re looking to steal your favourite artist’s look or just try something different, here are some of the top hair salons in Singapore that we recommend.
When estimating the cost of a haircut in Singapore, you’ll have to take into consideration several factors. Namely, the place you’re getting your hair cut, whether you’re a man or a woman (women’s haircuts tend to be slightly more expensive), and the experience of the stylist you choose to work on you.
Haircuts generally start from around $30 and average about $50 but can go up to $140 or more if you opt for one of the senior stylists at your salon.
Since their beginnings in 1995, Chez Vous’ expertise and creative spirit have seen them introduce many innovative hair care processes to the market. Among these are their Trilogy Hair Care System, their Sugar Hair Lamination, a Fake Ash Colouring Technique and many more.

"I've been going to Chez Vous since moving to Singapore in 2017 and Victor Liu is my go-to hairdresser since then. It’s been 4 years and I’ll only go to Chez Vous as it’s the only salon here I trust. The great thing about it is I’m never pushed to get a style or a haircut that the stylist thinks would suit me. Instead, I would come with an idea and I’m given the advantages and disadvantages for me to make a decision. Ultimately, my hair health is always prioritised during all hair services which is an important element to me. Plus, I always look great! Definitely would recommend!"." – Teresa Tan

"I had a good haircut & hair colour done at The Parlour. It was a comfortable and cosy environment. Sylvia was attentive & did a great job explaining which colour is more suitable for my current hair and the process of how she will be colouring it. She also does a great head massage while washing hair. Thank you so much!" – Vanessa Kong
