Get prepped and feel fab for all your festivities – whether it’s Chinese New Year visits, an upcoming birthday, or the next Christmas season! From the best facials and eyelash extensions to hair salon promotions, here are five spots to visit for top-to-toe pampering and beauty treatments.
Shopping for CNY goodies in town? Take a well-deserved break and pop by Kelture Aveda Lifestyle Spa Salon to get your locks refreshed! Centrally located at Paragon, this chic hair salon houses an experienced team of creative stylists who are experts in treating all types of hair – including blondes and frizzy hair. Try the herb stem scalp with hair treatment ($380) or the Bunyadi professional damage package for perm (from $300), which uses an organic and cruelty-free damage-care line popular in Korea. You’ll also get to enjoy a rebate of $50 on a hair-colouring service and $20 off a haircut (only valid with creative stylists) with each treatment.
Getting a fresh hair colour can make you feel like a new person, but over-colouring can strip the hair of its natural shine and leave it extra-damaged. That’s why we recommend the natural organic colour service (from $180). This service uses up to 93 percent plant-derived hair colour products from Aveda, which help to improve the hair condition while giving you a new look.
Chez Moi De Beaute
Looking for a painless fix to niggling signs of ageing? Try the Indiba Proionic facial. This is an advanced, non-surgical treatment that promises to improve skin health from the inside out. The painless facial uses radiofrequency to invigorate cells and restore lacklustre skin. A unique massage technique is paired with the delivery of radiofrequency energy to the cells – together, they cause the cellular metabolism to speed up and collagen production to increase. The result is a visibly firmer and more radiant complexion after just one session.
Try it at a special price of $180 (worth $380)! Sign up at chezmoi.com.sg/indiba.
For beauty treatments that pamper and restore health, try salt therapy at Pablo Blau, a luxurious salt medi-spa equipped with treatment rooms that are entirely coated with salt crystals from Europe. On top of the dermatological benefits, having a facial at a salt room can help to strengthen the immune system and cleanse the airways, too!
We recommend the Detox Skin Refined Customised facial ($390, 75 minutes), which helps to brighten dull and dehydrated skin, while decongesting clogged pores. Suitable for all skin types, this relaxing treatment is customised to various skin concerns, including wrinkles, dullness and dry skin. Psst… The facial is tried-and-tested by beauty editor Anthia!

The Lash Company
Eyeing fluttery lashes but don’t want the hassle of putting on falsies? Try eyelash extensions at The Lash Company – it’s one surefire way to wake up with long, pretty lashes. Whether you want an everyday look, or prefer to try something more dramatic, each set of eyelash extensions at The Lash Company is tailored to complement your own natural lashes.
If you prefer something more natural, go for the Natural Classic ($88). Our top pick, however, is the Full Classic ($108), which gives an illusion of an eyeliner-look! The length, curl and number of lashes used are chosen to suit your eye shape and natural lashes. This results in a customised set of flutters that flatter the features. Your visit starts with a thorough consultation, followed by a deep-cleansing lash spa to remove dead skin, oil, dirt and bacteria for a clean lash-line. This prevents infection and irritation, and helps your extensions last longer. During the treatment, you’ll also be given a collagen eye mask and a hydrating lip mask. At the end of the session, you’ll receive an aftercare kit to take home.
Trimmings Salon & Spa
Treat yourself to a selection of fab beauty treatments from hair, nail and spa services at Trimmings’ two outlets (Tudor Court and Loewen Road). You’ll be spoilt for choice here! One of our favourite treatments is the slimming massage ($125 for 90 minutes), which uses Aveda products. The full-body massage features a combination of deep tissue and lymphatic techniques, with fast and rhythmic movements to help break down fatty deposits, stimulate circulation and increase blood flow to the muscles. You’ll be asked for your preferences before the session begins, so do specify the problem areas you’d like your therapist to focus on. The results? Post-massage bliss, along with a tighter-looking tummy and waist.
