With Chinese New Year just around the corner, getting a hair makeover is probably just as important as getting your complexion and nails CNY-ready.

Traditionally, hair salons typically impose a surcharge due to the overwhelming demand, extra working hours, and lack of manpower during the festive period. However, more and more salons are doing away with the surcharge – some are even running promotions and discounts to make your CNY prep a little sweeter!

Whether you want to treat your tresses to a relaxing treatment or freshen up your hair colour, we’ve rounded up 26 salons where you can enjoy savings while ringing in the new year with a new look. You’re welcome!

Salon Vim


Most of us are familiar with Salon Vim, and chances are, you are a regular customer of this salon chain as well. One of the first hair salons to introduce vibrant hair colours to Singapore, Salon Vim is the one to book an appointment at (if you haven’t already) for a new hair colour to cover up those black roots.

However, the general advice is that prices can go rather high if you consider additional treatments – for example, you may be charged for the price of a haircut even if the trim took only five minutes, so be sure to allocate enough budget before heading down.

Devonshire Hair Studio + Eye Design


Although Japanese hair salons in Singapore are a top choice for their attention to detail and unrivalled aesthetic sense, their treatment prices are often not the most pocket-friendly – and that’s where Devonshire sets itself apart.

The salon, which is famous for offering special haircut techniques, using only good-quality hair colours, and providing treatments that take years off your face with minimal damage, is well-loved for charging reasonable prices that are significantly lower than some of the local salons – starting from just S$90 for a haircut plus Davines treatment and S$160 for a dye job with Davines treatment.
