While most experienced hairstylists can replicate any hairstyle by looking at photographs of it, Korean hair salons are usually staffed with stylists who are always keeping themselves abreast of trends from Korea, and are equipped with the right tools, machines and products that can help you achieve Korean hairstyles. Moreover, the service, the atmosphere, and overall experience are usually able to transport you to Korea without you hopping onto a plane. You can read about my experience in a Korean Hair Salon here, and you will know what I mean!

Now, if you’re ready to check out Korean hair salons in Singapore, we have seven to introduce. Go to the next page to see the first.

Staffed with an all-Korean team, this slight language barrier does not hinder the quality of service down at Aqua Hair Salon. At the salon, you can look forward to a daebak (“awesome” in Korean) head massage, and their highly sought after perming and rebonding hair services. If you are looking for a change of colour, to tone down the hair colour, or to cover your grey hair (nothing to be ashamed of), you can try their Natural Herb Colour (NHC), a gentle hair dye with its natural ingredients that gets the job done.
