As Singapore spruces up for its 50th birthday this year, veteran hair salon Chez Vous follows suit to commemorate its own big 20.
The mothership to Salon Vim, Chez Vous’ updated Ngee Ann City parlour packs a few new artistic touches and semi-private spaces for specialised hair attention. The new space works almost as a fabulous time warp, taking customers away from the hustle they bustled their way in from. Plus, if you’re getting one of the satisfying hair washes in Chez Vous’ kerchief-draped washroom, you’re even allowed a nap in the darkened space.
The main seating areas each come with their own built-in tablet-sized televisions and three Cocoon areas veiled by a translucent fabric. A private room can be booked if you want a quieter nook to get your hair worked on. Treatments like Amplified Scalp Treats ($200/first trial, $270/usual) for common crown problems come with a neck and shoulder massage, and Amplified Keratin Treatment (from $325) makes hair sleek with a formaldehydefree formula. Cuts are a pricey $70, but you get what you pay for with Chez Vous’ ‘Only Hair Directors Allowed’ policy. For a lowdown of each pro stylists’ specialisations – some work exclusively on Caucasian hair – flip through the salon menu while you sip on the complimentary Dilmah tea. Très fancy.
