Affordable home-based hair salons in Singapore
Getting a haircut can be a pricey affair if you go to a professional salon. Often times, it’s painful for us to fork out a hundred bucks for a solid hair makeover - especially if you get your hair done often.
But you don’t have to go to a high-end salon for a good quality hairdo. With home-based hair salons, you can get your hair styled by retired professionals or hairstylists with proper certifications without suffering serious wallet damage.

Neighbourhood hair salons in Singapore
Many swear by home-based salons because of the privacy and flexible hours it offers, and it’s an added bonus if they’re only an elevator ride or a short walk away from your home. And unlike at a shopping mall, home-based salons don’t have to cover expensive rental fees, which allows them to keep their services relatively affordable.
