Hunting for a hair stylist in Singapore? Someone who knows their ombre from their balayage? Hello, Expat Hair Studio! Founded by Jaclyn Douglas and Katherine Moss in 2014 after spotting a gap in the market for quality British and Australian hairdressing on the Red Dot, this East Coast boutique salon is turning (highlighted) heads right across the island – so much so that they had to move to bigger premises less than a year after opening shop!
Sure, we love the little extras that Expat Hair Studio offers in droves – the magazines, the beverage menu, the free wi-fi that we’ll use to Instagram our new ‘do’ the minute the GHD is switched off – but it’s the style and service of any hairdressing team that ultimately clinches the client and where this salon is really causing waves. With a team of 16 professional cutters and colourists hand-selected by Jacky and Kat and with a whack of international experience styling Caucasian hair between them, you’re almost guaranteed to find a stylist who you’ll, you know, click with.
So, with a hair bar flashing everything from ladies’ and men’s cuts, to blow dries, restyles, upstyles, perms, rebonding, highlights, colour, plus keratin and reparative Olaplex treatments, how do you know from the off which stylist to book for which service? We’ve done the background checks, so flick through the gallery below to find out more about each of Expat Hair Studio’s talented hairdressers and their areas of specialty.
Once ensconced in your chair with a cup of tea in hand, you’ll get Expat Hair Studio’s signature treatment – an in-depth hair consultation so you can be assured you’ll be getting a style that suits your face shape and hair type, a new extended appointment time for a more personal service and at-home styling tips and tricks. And, we reckon hub’ will think it upstanding that they give you a fully-itemised quote before the scissors so much as start snipping.
Don’t forget to snaffle some retail products from leading brands on your way out, too. See you in the foils!
