Conceptualised by one of the most well-reviewed hair salons in Singapore, Chez Vous: HideAway is an all-new exciting concept testing boutique, created to ignite a modern hair salon revolution. It redefines your everyday salon-going experience, combining a clever menu of the finest hair services with complimentary spa-like touches, in an immersive made-for-Instagram experiential setting. This is luxury treatment for your precious tresses, as you have never experienced before.
LUXURY FACTOR #1: URBAN RETREAT-LIKE LOUNGE WITH A “VIEW”
Imagine this: You’re packed and all ready for your much-deserved vacay, and instead of stressing or just waiting around at the airport before the flight, you get to chill in a First-Class Airport Lounge. That’s what the designated lounge of Chez Vous’ HideAway Concept Hair Salon feels like. And when the luxe welcome parlour comes complete with a “view” for guests to relax pre- or post-hair makeover, it’s surely a must-try!
We recommend coming early for your appointment, as you will get to relax at the Re-Charge lounge, where complimentary signature herbal teas and spa snacks await. We strongly encourage enjoying these refreshments while seated in a state-of-the-art massage chair, where you can try the Oxygen Bar and treat yourself to fresh doses of oxygen, known to reduce stress and increase energy levels. Plus: If hair thinning is one of your concerns, you can even undergo a 20-minute treatment under a clinically proven Red Laser Light powered machine here – for free!
LUXURY FACTOR #2: CUSTOMISED SCENTED JOURNEY
If you think the impressive services stop at the lounge, prepare to be surprised. While waiting for the stylist to attend to us, the salon staff offered a selection of essential oil scents for us to choose from.
Pick carefully – it’s not meant for a basic massage, but for a tailored scented salon experience. Your aromatherapeutic oil of choice is infused into the shampoo, conditioner and serum used during the hair makeover process. Now, that’s what we call bespoke.
LUXURY FACTOR #3: COMPLIMENTARY SPA-LIKE ADD-ONS
Throughout the hair service, we experienced many other small gestures that spelt “world-class”. Treatments such as a Swedish scalp rejuvenation massage, preceded by a ring of the Tibetan Singing Bowl to promote peace and calm, along with S-Ion brush cleansing at the wash cave; a plasma-powered scalp sterilisation process post-hair wash to remove bacteria; and a lime-tree blossom extract serum application to reduce discomfort before hair colouring – all these made us feel ultra pampered and well taken care of.
Bond Strengthening hair shots are also added into all chemical services to lessen the damage caused to hair. But our fave was a quick shoulder massage with hot shoulder pads before the final blow-styling. The best part: All these add-ons are on the house. Consider us impressed!
LUXURY FACTOR #4: EXCLUSIVITY, DEDICATED ATTENTION AND RELIABLE HAIR STYLISTS
Here is where you can feel like a celeb. Each stylist at the salon only takes on about five reservation-only appointments a day, with two whole hours allocated to each appointment so that ample time and attention is given to your mane. What’s more, the team is spearheaded by experienced Associate Directors, Shawn Chia and Oscar Lee from the award-winning Salon – Chez Vous, so you can be rest assured that your hair is in good hands!
LUXURY FACTOR #5: MORE THAN JUST A BRANDED SALON EXPERIENCE
Consumers today are more sophisticated and ideas of luxury are no longer defined by just exclusive possessions or valuing brand status superficially. Going to any salon just because of its brand name – No. Longer. Cuts. It.
This is where Chez Vous gets it right. Instead of “spamming” the space with makeover stations, chandeliers and marble flooring, Chez Vous:HideAway’s 1800 square feet of space is crafted into seven different Instagrammable zones, each eliciting a different mood.
If you’re someone who enjoys the immersive experience of pop-up museums (think a Yayoi Kusama exhibition or Museum of Selfies), you’ll love this salon.
So, will a hair makeover at the salon cost an arm and a leg? Here’s the math. All the complimentary spa-like services (estimated to be worth around $200), its “Instagrammable” interior plus the quality of stylists stationed here, equates to a sum worth much more than its haircut and one tone colour service, that only costs $199.
Or, you can choose to level up your experience – pick from 4 available bundles, for all hair lengths:
$199 + 7% G.S.T. for 2 services (Cut + 1 other service)
$299 + 7% G.S.T. for 3 services (Cut + 2 other services)
$399 + 7% G.S.T. for 4 services (Cut + 3 other services)
$499 + 7% G.S.T. for 5 services (Cut + 4 other services)
*Additional $99 for Keratin Treatment, 10-step Treatment Digital Perm or Rebonding, Growth Factor Scalp Therapy
Splurge or steal? The Singapore Womens’ Weekly verdict: It’s luxury-at-a-steal! Time to book this hair-liday getaway, stat.
