There are many decisions in life that we know are super important: buying a house, changing a job, whether to continue binging on another episode of that Netflix series (okay, we kid about this last one!)
Another decision that’s almost as important? Finding a hair salon that you can trust your tresses with.
Experts recommend visiting a hair salon once every two to three months to at least get a snip to keep our hair healthy and polished. And we know that we’d also want to get a new, refreshing hair colour or at least touch up our roots so our hairstyle can always look fresh.
To help you find a salon that you can trust in for all your hair colouring needs, here are the best hair colouring salons that have made it to our hot list. You’ll be able to find one that’s very skilled in making brown hair chic, another that is committed to caring for your scalp and hair, and even one that makes you feel like an Instagram star.
Read on to discover all of them!
1. Picasso Hair Studio
While purple, pink, or green hair may be making their way into our Instagram feed (and our hearts!), let’s admit that brown is still going to be the most versatile hair colour to sport whether it’s for work or play.
But don’t for a moment think that brown has to be boring. If you’re looking to get a safe, brown hair colour but still look chic and unique, consider Picasso Hair Studio for your next hair colouring appointment.
Most known for its creative colours (and perming services!), Picasso Hair Studio is famous for mixing colours so as to create a look that’s unique yet very wearable.
It helps that Picasso now carries Mydentity Hair Color by Guy Tang (yes, you may have remembered this name for the many viral hair colour looks he has created). The brand has launched a new collection called “Naked”, which can help you achieve a beautiful fading of the brown shade on hair so it looks naturally gorgeous.
But it’s not just the products that matter; you’d need to find a stylist who has a deep understanding of colours and sense of creativity to customise a unique formula that you can pull off.
Picasso Hair Studio prides itself in precisely that. Before every cut and colour, its stylist looks at your face shape and skin tone in order to customise the most ideal look for you.
If its 4.6-star ratings on Facebook and appreciative reviews from customers are anything to go by, we’re pretty sure you’d be in good hands!

Making sure that you step out of the salon with not just beautifully coloured hair – but also healthy hair and balanced scalp – is an important part of the experience at Salon Infinity.
