Getting a fresh cut and colour are just what we need to feel brand new as we celebrate Chinese New Year in 2022. However, as everyone is primping to look their best for the festive occasion, most hair salons in Singapore are also hiking their prices, which means that you’re paying more for the same haircut or dye from now until the start of the Lunar New Year.

Well, we think that the cash could be better spent on scrumptious goodies to binge on over the CNY, which is why we’ve rounded up a list of the top 11 hair salons in Singapore that are doing without CNY surcharges. You’ll get to save your spendings while giving your tresses the luxury treatment that they deserve.

Really let your hair down and enjoy a special pampering this year, because some of these salons even have great seasonal deals that you can look forward to, and discounts of up to 68% off!
