GC Hairdressing

Located just a few minutes away from Farrer Park MRT, GC Hairdressing is convenient for those travelling by public transport.

A haircut will cost only S$40 for ladies and S$30 for gentlemen. These are deals worth snagging if you’re looking for a simple trim before starting anew with the Lunar New Year.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to refresh your hair colour, you can opt for their iconic Balayage Highlight or the trendy Hidden Colour.

Balayage Highlight will give your locks a natural-looking ombre, using a freehand painted method to achieve a smooth gradient.

For a bolder, trendier colour style, try GC Hairdressing’s Hidden Colour.

Just like Lisa from Blackpink and Renjun from NCT Dream, the inner layer of your hair will be dyed to the colour of your choice while the outer remains black.

This way, you can easily shield your dyed locks after Chinese New Year and flaunt it whenever you like by tying your hair in a half-updo.

Even though this style involves bleaching, you’ll only need to pay S$128 to get this popular hair look.
