“The new Chez Vous: Private Space (where I got my hair done) truly lives up to its name – you get to enjoy a five-star hair experience in the privacy of your own little cabin.
In fact, you don’t even have to leave the chair to wash your hair as there’s a wash basin right in the room itself. The entire session is super pampering, think of it as a business class version of your usual hair salon.
Enjoy an IG-worthy high tea set, plus an extensive array of refreshing beverages, from yuzu chia seed sodas to coffee lattes and blooming flower teas (I tried the peach carnation green tea, and it looks as good as it tastes!).
Every detail has been taken care of to ensure that you are comfortable, and there’s even a selection of hand lotions and perfumes for use.
You can also request for perks such as the Neorhythm pad that supposedly soothes tired muscles with electromagnetic waves, and the Apollo Neuro device that relaxes you with vibrational frequencies.
A special mention has to be made of the Express Head Spa, which is one of the best head massages I’ve had in a hair salon.
A trip to the salon for a colour or bleach session can feel quite tiresome due to the long hours spent in the chair, but all these really help make the experience a thoroughly enjoyable one.
But of course, the main reason for going to a salon is to do your hair, and Chez Vous does not disappoint.
Based on my skin tone, my stylist, associate director Mogan Lam at Chez Vous, recommended a Viva Magenta colour (which just happens to be the Pantone Colour of the Year) that helps set off my complexion to give it a radiant glow.
And it was just as promised! I really love my new hair colour, and I think it makes me look “brighter” even with minimal makeup.
I met some friends for dinner after and they were all full of compliments. When I got home, even my usually reticent husband was like “Wa… Nice colour.”
Chez Vous also has the best after care service. I went home with a coloured hair mask and received tips on Whatsapp about how to take care of my new ‘do.”
