The salon in question is Athens Salon, located in Far East Plaza.

Ann Lin, the salon’s director, revealed to Mothership that she was inspired by local singers who frequent her salons.

She personally also enjoys singing, which spurred her to offer this one-of-a-kind free service to her clients!

How Often Do They Host Karaoke Sessions?

The salon clarified on its TikTok account (@athenssalon) that they do not host karaoke sessions every day, and these occur only when requested by a customer. Otherwise, the treatments “will still be in peace”, said the salon.

With such an amusing service, it’s no surprise that people are flocking to the salon to experience this for themselves!

Another customer eagerly participated in a karaoke session while getting his hair washed, singing his heart out even while lying flat on his back.

Some users lauded this as a creative solution to boost business, with one enthusing that it was their “time to shine”.

Meanwhile, others complained about the noise created. One netizen declared that they would “rather be bald” than endure other clients’ karaoke sessions.

“It’s supposed to be an oasis of peace & rejuvenation. If someone comes in and screams, then it’ll be torture,” said another.

One practical netizen mused that shampoo going into your eyes at the hair salon is already an unpleasant experience, and wondered what might happen if shampoo got into one’s mouth.

Another user joked that if a customer has a horrible voice, they might be required to “pay extra for staff suffering”.

“So depending on the customer, the shop will draw customers or drive them away?” asked one curious commenter.

One netizen directly asked the salon if they would let customers play on a Playstation 5 during their haircut, to which the salon confidently replied “Of course”.

However, we’re still waiting for another viral video to confirm this!

So, will you be flexing your singing skills at this salon?
