Yoon Salon Reviews: Say Hello To Lustrous Hair!

To be very honest, I am not someone who pays a lot of attention to my appearance. I limit self-care to exercising (as often as I can), eating nutritious food, being organized and safeguarding my mental and emotional well-being by reading, journaling, nurturing my hobbies, spending quality time with my family and socializing with friends. My skin care and hair care regimen is virtually non-existent, I am not too fond of make-up and I'm certainly not making it to any "best dressed" lists any time soon!

But, I do realize that neglecting your skin, mane and appearance isn’t something to be proud of. No matter what anyone says, appearance does make a difference. You don’t need to think of it as being vain or superficial. Instead, think of it as an important element of self-care. Looking good can make you feel good and in turn makes you put your best foot forward. Not to mention, putting more thought into your appearance is one of the easiest ways to boost self-esteem, improve your prospects and the way people perceive you. It is a nonverbal form of communication that includes your sartorial choices, grooming, body language and etiquette.

Hair is a fundamental expression of one’s individuality. Your crowning glory is one of the first things that people notice about you. It could also be a reflection of how healthy or unhealthy your lifestyle is. Greasy, damaged, dry, brittle, limp or a lacklustre mane can make you feel terribly self-conscious. No one likes a bad hair day (I certainly don’t!).

I hadn’t cut my tresses in a really long time and honestly, it was starting to resemble Hagrid’s (from Harry Potter) 😂 The humidity in Singapore does absolutely criminal things to my locks and even though their natural tendency is to be silky and wavy, over the years, the weather here has turned them incredibly dry and frizzy. The weeks spent cooped up at home during the circuit breaker added to the woeful neglect of my mane. It was turning into somewhat of an eyesore that I was desperate to address.

Experimenting with different cuts, styles and treatments can instantly transform your locks and impart that much-needed feel-good factor. Apart from taking your confidence a notch higher, it is a great opportunity to pamper yourself and reinvent your look.

Yoon Salon is a leading hair salon in Singapore with a key team that has numerous years of experience in this line. With three branches located in strategic locations and dedicated staff who are adept at styling a fresh new look or providing a satisfying treatment customised to each individual's crown needs, this salon can serve as your one-stop hair destination. Whether you are looking to combat troubling hair woes or attain your desired style goals, Yoon Salon can be your mane saviour!

The salon’s USP is that they offer a range of styling services, use only premium and gentle products, have a team of most sought-after stylists and demonstrate exceptional service and quality.

I booked an appointment at the Mid-Point Orchard branch on a weekend afternoon. I arrived on time to find a medium-sized salon that was neat, tidy and well-maintained. I was relieved to see all the precautionary measures against Covid-19 were adopted and maintained throughout the appointment. The staff were all well-informed and courteous. 



Here is the service I got plus all the additional services and treatments offered by the salon,

Premium Haircut

Some people know exactly what kind of look they want while others may not be so sure (ahem…like me). 

I opted for this service and the stylist at Yoon Salon was more than happy to give me a recommendation regarding the style that would suit the texture of my locks and face shape. I just mentioned to her that I didn’t want anything radically different, wasn't crazy about bangs and would like to retain the length of my locks as much as possible.

The stylist was friendly and very professional. She shampooed my tresses, gave me a relaxing scalp and neck massage, washed the solutions off, cut it in the manner we had agreed upon, blow-dried it and carefully styled it. She had oodles of patience, was completely focused and she seemed to me a thorough perfectionist! The whole thing took about one a half hours from start to finish.

This is what I got. Look at the before and after. I was amazed that a simple cut could improve the appearance of my locks so much! And it felt so incredibly soft and lustrous. Later, a friend even asked me if it is a Korean wave perm!

What do you think folks?

The salon provides this service for any length of locks (long or short) and for children as well. The stylists are experienced in a wide range of techniques from wedge to layered cuts. You can sit back, relax and feel confident in the realization that your crowning glory will be professionally tended to according to the desired look. 


Premium Wash and Blow

If you are looking to achieve clean and nourished locks, this option would be perfect for you. 

This service entails a deep root cleanse to eliminate sebum that may cause clogged bumps on your scalp. Following that, you will be given a soothing massage to relax any tensions around your neck and shoulder areas. Once your tresses are squeaky clean, it will be professionally styled to give it volume, smoothness and shine.


Premium Hair Coloring

Switching up the color of your tresses can give you an instant makeover! But then again, when going for dyeing, it is vital that the products used on your precious mane are of premium quality.

At the end of the treatment, you will be able to showcase a rich and vibrant shade that is obvious yet natural. Remember that the after-care treatment of colored locks is important to preserve the vibrancy of the color. 


Premium Bleaching

If you happen to have a dark mane and are fed-up of your generic brunette locks, you can consider bleaching. You have a few different options available for bleaching so talk to the stylist about which one would be the best for you. The products used are gentle yet effective so go ahead and experiment away!


Premium Creative Hair Coloring

The technique for this treatment is similar to that of the Premium Hair Coloring but it includes multiple coloring and highlighting and hence the results may be more striking. By using products that impart high-intensity color as well as locking in the moisture and color, your tresses will be truly transformed and you can flaunt your amazing new ‘do!

You have some interesting options if you are new to creative hair coloring. One of them is Balayage. This technique is also a form of highlighting in which stylists will identify various sections of your tresses light will reflect naturally. They will then highlight those sections. The finished look will leave you awestruck! On the other hand, there is an ombre. This technique uses two shades of a similar colour that gradually changes from a darker tone to a lighter tone. 


Premium Hair Rebonding

i

Let's face it folks - curls take a lot more time and effort to maintain so rebonding or straightening is an option that is quite popular. This is also a good option if you have frizzy hair since the treatment leaves the strands moisturized and nourished, prevents strand breakage and overall, makes your mane sleek and shiny. Just slide a comb through your tresses and you are ready to take on the world! Keep in mind though  - as with other hair treatments, after-care is crucial.


Premium Hair Perming

i

Modern day perms are nothing like some of the ghastly perms of the '80s that were so in vogue back then! There are so many different options today that you will be spoilt for choices. A soft and natural looking perm creates smooth bouncy waves that not only adds volume to the mane but looks extremely chic (think of the immaculately coiffed ladies Blake Lively and Kate Middleton). Not to mention, almost anyone can carry this look off!


Premium Creative Hair Shaping

i

i

For soft and natural looking curls that add volume to your mane and makes it easier to manage and style, Creative Hair Shaping is the way to go. This is an ingenious technique of combining straightening and perm together....a two-in-one package deal if you will! While the top portion of your tresses achieves the straight and sleek look, the ends fall into gorgeous and effortless beach waves. The overall effect is modern, professional and attractive.  


Hair Defrizzing Treatment

i

i

If your mane woes extend to dry, frizzy or brittle hair and you are seeking ways to improve the texture and strength, then talk to the stylist about the intensive treatment options that are available. The products used are backed by scientific research, safe and can effectively help tame down frizzy hair, strengthen the roots and help impart a healthy and glossy look to your crowning glory.

Hair Regrowth Treatment

i

i

For purifying and scalp cleansing, removing dirt and sebum and nourishing the mane and scalp, this would be a smart choice to undergo. This treatment aims to achieve a healthy, oil-controlled, and dandruff-free crown.

Love is in the (H)AIR!

I was so glad I stopped by the salon to experience their service first-hand. The stylists knew what they were doing, the salon and equipment used met hygiene standards and I felt really safe considering the ongoing global pandemic. I went in with locks that were crying out for help and I came out with them looking red carpet ready! Not only did I get a fabulous cut and style but overall, it was a very pleasant and relaxing experience too. 

Highly recommended! 👍

    1. No I didn't. I went for a simple hair cut and I was genuinely pleased with the results.

  2. Hi am not sure if this was a paid review but this salon is one of the typical scams that happen all over SG. They run this $28 trial for defrizz, then book you for an hour. the treatment is basically a 5 min shampoo with 5 min blowdry and strong ironing with some serum. that's it. anyone can do that at home. and then they try to force information on you about your own scalp which has NO real scientific basis. And then tell you that you've wasted your time if you won't sign up for future treatments. i rarely ever bother to write reviews but these guys should be banned. I hope no one falls for their scam again.

    1. Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Yes, this was a paid review. One that I agreed to do only after experiencing the hair service for myself. My review is 100% honest and based on MY personal experience alone. I cannot speak on behalf of anyone else nor am I liable for another customer's dissatisfaction with the salon. I'm sorry you had a bad experience but I suggest you take it up with the management. Having said that, I acknowledge your grievance and appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback.

    2. I had the exact same experience. I went for the defrizz trial today. I was told the exact same thing that it's not long lasting and to sign up for their package. It was so frustrating. And the lady's logic in explaining herself made absolutely no sense.

  3. First you made a disclaimer its not a sponsored post but a paid review? How different is that. You still get a sum of money from them.

    1. I suggest you read what I have written properly. I have clearly mentioned that it IS a sponsored post. But instead of just accepting money to write a review blindly, I actually went to the salon, interacted with the staff there and underwent a treatment of my choice. My review of the hair treatment is based on my experience and 100% honest.

  6. You must be paid by Yoon Salon to post such experience, most of us had bad encounters at this scammer Yoon Salon, you shouldn't help them to scam any more innocent people on social media. I hope the Yoon Salon will get their karma soon for deceiving so many people.

    1. As I have pointed out several times already....yes this IS a sponsored post. I did not have a bad experience at this salon. In fact I had a very good one. The photo of the before and after in this post is ME. I was offered a service and my review reflects the quality of the service that I received. I have nothing to do with the management and their marketing decisions. If you are dissatisfied, please voice your concerns where it will make a difference instead of leaving comments like these anonymously. I have no idea who you are or even if your complaint is a genuine one. I am still publishing and replying to your comment in the spirit of transparency. Have a good day.
