Finding a good hair salon in Singapore that doesn’t break the bank isn’t easy. So when we learned that international celebrity illusionist Joe Labero visits And A. Salon for the upkeep of his own crown, we knew there must be magic to be found here.
Since 2013, And . A Salon has been making a name for itself as a luxurious beauty salon without the heavy price-tag. Sounds good, right? Their trained-stylists come from Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore, and the salon offers quality hair and nail product lines, including Kerastase, Shiseido, L’Oréal, and OPI.
When you step into And . A Salon, you’re greeted by the salon’s very minimalist, red and white modern design, as well as a friendly staff member offering you something to drink. You’ll appreciate the incredibly comfortable shampoo-area chairs that your body will simply melt into while you indulge in a complete shampoo and head massage before, during, or after your hair treatment. This salon takes care of their clients from head to toe, without the guilt of spending beyond your budget. While other nail salons charge close to $100 for a manicure or pedicure, you’ll always find And . A Salon’s manicure prices at $25, and pedicures at $35.
If the salon’s unique name doesn’t spark your interest, the deluxe shampoo lounges will do it. The deluxe shampoo stations are equipped with fully-reclining beds that allow guests to drift off to la-la land during the complete hair-wash. With your feet up and off the ground, and your neck in a fully-supported rest, your stylist is able to provide you with a complete shampoo, while your body and mind are relaxed, even during longer treatments.
The trained-stylists at And . A Salon have years of experience treating hair-loss, oily scalp, dry, and frizzy hair. Each new client is given a professional, one-on-one consultation with the appropriate stylist who asks the right questions, and uses visual-aids such as magazines or an electronic hair-profile to obtain the look you’re seeking. During a color-consultation, a color chart is used to determine a successful result, and after-care advice is given by stylists who can recommend the appropriate styling products to maintain your look.
Another great aspect of this salon is that they cater to families with children. Don’t be surprised if you see a dad popping in for a quick hair-cut, while his little one(s) watch in awe of daddy’s transformation. Mr. Labero has been spotted with his adorable daughter a few times. If you’re having a kid-free visit to the salon (lucky you!), the staff will make sure you’re on the other side of the salon (they have 6 styling stations), sipping on a refreshing beverage. On weekends, you can sample delicious savory cakes and sweets, while sipping on an espresso!
Using quality products such as Shiseido, L’Oréal, and Keratin, accompanied by stylists highly-trained in various techniques of hair straightening, And . A Salon has the solution to your on-going battle with Singapore’s high humidity and “the frizz”. Starting at $85 for a 20-minute express treatment, you may find yourself pleasantly surprised by the salon’s reasonable price list. If a permanent or chemical hair-straightening treatment isn’t your thing, pop in for a regular wash and blow-dry, starting at just $25!
Your visit will leave you feeling pampered and relaxed, without the worry of spending your monthly life budget on your hair and nails. They’re located in the Claymore Connect mall, right next to Orchard Hotel.
