New Look with Chez Vous Hair Salon
Visiting a hair salon to maintain my hair has become a norm to me as I have very long hair which needs regular treatments to make it look healthy. I am very excited to share with you guys that I have finally found a gem among the many hair salons in Singapore! This salon is none other than Chez Vous Hair Salon which I foresee myself visiting them regularly in the near future.
Chez Vous Hair Salon
As a brief background, Chez Vous Hair Salon is established in 1995 in Bugis Junction by founders Thomas Teo and Riz Tan (previously from the famed FOX Salon).
Thomas Teo has over 24 years of experience under his belt and has styled countless editorial shoots and celebrities such as Anita Sarawak. Riz Tan has 27 years of experience and has worked on celebrity clients such as supermodel QiQi, Aaron Kwok and Fann Wong.
Over the years, Chez Vous Hair Salon has evolved into a 30-seater luxury salon in the heart of Orchard Road with 3 other outlets under Salon Vim.

In 2014, Chez Vous Hair Salon has underwent a S$250,000 facelift with a thematic layout and design interior setting the stage for a series of innovative and ambitious initiatives.
Coloured Hand Sculptures
You will be greeted by a display wall of brightly coloured hand sculptures reaching out to you as you enter the salon. These sculptures represent the hands of many people that have been on Chez Vous‘ journey – reminding them that success was neither built overnight nor alone. I love the inclusive culture portrayed by these inviting hands.
The HYDRA BAR is also situated at the entrance of Chez Vous Hair Salon where patrons would be served with a divine selection of Lauduree Teas and Organic nibbles if they are expected to wait for more than 15 minutes.
The entire salon was filled with the trademark Chez Vous scent from the diffusers which made me feel so soothed and relaxed when I entered first entered. 😇
The main area of the salon consists of 30 posh & plush styling pods equipped with in-seat entertainment gadgets. 😍
Patrons would be seated in this open space where they are free to commune with each other since they are seated in a row.
WOW Private Room
Chez Vous Hair Salon also have a WOW Private Room for patrons who prefer more privacy whilst enjoying their hair treatments.
The salon places great emphasis that they treat all their patrons equally as all of them are their distinguished guests. Hence the WOW Private Room is not created for VIPs, it was established with regulars who have special needs in mind.
In view that most of the patrons housed in the WOW Private Room consist of the elderly, sick and disabled, the designer incorporated colourful light strips into the décor to create a cozy and cheery effect.
SPLASH Wash Bay
The SPLASH Wash Bay is another intriguing section of the salon as I was amazed by the infinity mirrors and artistic ceiling installation.
In fact, my jaw literally dropped when I was told that those super comfy plush seats were approximately 20 years old! 😱
This is my favourite part of the salon as I found myself being lulled to slumberland after staring at the strips of cloth swaying in all directions whilst having my hair washed. 😅
Pièce de résistance
Digressing a little, the pièce de résistance located near the SPLASH Wash Bay consists of panelled wood sculpture artwork which forms a man’s face that transforms in expression given your perspective.
The sculpture kind of reminds me of Dum Dum from Night At The Museum though! 😜
Only Hair Director Allowed (OHDA) Policy
To me, having a pretty interior décor is definitely not enough for a hair salon as most of us would be concerned about the final results.
At Chez Vous Hair Salon, they have implemented the OHDA Policy as part of their stringent quality control to ensure that their patrons’ hair are in good hands at all times. Also, they have a dedicated Caucasian Hair Team which is specialised in treating and cutting Caucasian hair.
We’ll Fix It – Chez Vous Expertligent Fix You Programme
I once remembered that my mom brought me to a neighbourhood hair salon to get my hair trimmed for school. The stylist simply commented that the ends of my hair was damaged from the previous haircut (I had layered hair) and she snipped my hair mercilessly to shorter than shoulder length before i could even react. 😭 I lamented over my lost hair over the next couple of months after that incident and vowed not to visit that salon ever again.😡
Chez Vous Hair Salon launched the We’ll Fix It initiative which offer to fix all unsatisfactory managed hair by any other local salons at no charge. This service is is strictly by appointment only and you have to contact the Chez Vous Hair Salon within 5 days.
This bold initiative benefits both the society as well as the salon. The stylists at Chez Vous Hair Salon can continuously hone their skills when thrown with various challenges. In addition, those who have already spent a fortune on unsatisfactory hair services can fix their hair, mind and spirit at no additional costs.
“We don’t develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.”
– Barbara de Angelis
In fact, I was sold when I read all the positive reviews on the We’ll Fix It initiative online prior to visiting Chez Vous Hair Salon.
My Hair Transformation
Below are my Snapchat snippets. Catch me on Snapchat @Aldora_Muses if you haven’t! 😜
Associate Salon Director Readen Chia was assigned to understand my hair needs and style my hair.
I have been hesitating to bleach my hair for the longest time as I am too lazy to do home treatments to maintain it’s lustre.
My hair is forever in the boring shades of brown and I am dying to give it a new look.
Hence I found an ideal hair design on Pinterest and showed it to Readen and shared with him my concerns on caring for bleached hair.
After giving me a few recommendations, he then proceeded to trim my hair and bleach it.
Don’t you think ash goes well with a pop of pink?
As I had bleached the ends of my hair for the balayage style 1 year ago, my hair reacted pretty well to the bleach.
I specially requested for Readen not to bleach my hair too many rounds in view that it can be too damaging for my poor hair.
Hence my hair underwent only a round of bleach in order for the pastel colour to be absorbed by my hair.
So this is how my hair looks like after a round of bleaching and colouring.
Readen even imparted some of his styling tips to me on how do I curl my hair with thongs.😄
And… I managed to change my hair parting from left to right with Readen‘s help!
My fringe used to be real stubborn and wouldn’t be trained to switch sides which is unhealthy. Even the previous hair stylist I visited advised that it would be an uphill task to switch my parting as my hair simply wouldn’t budge.😟
I managed to train my fringe to part the opposite direction within only 1 week.
Wanna know the secret? The trick lies in pinning my hair near the roots to train it to flip the opposite direction. 😇 Sounds simple but took me years to realise this invaluable tip!
Special thanks to the Chez Vous Team and Readen for transforming my hair!
The usual price for hair colouring is S$745 but the salon is currently having special promotion at S$499 + GST available from Friday – Sunday only.
