Trendy salons featuring fancy décor and bonus services are now the craze: apart from just getting a haircut, these destinations double up as places to get your cappuccino fix or even a complete photoshoot. Some places in Singapore even provide private cubicles for extra me-time, a single styling chair for 1-to-1 services, and the ultimate personalised experience: a customised Spotify playlist for your tastes.
While all of that is impressive, there’s a new salon in town that takes this all to the next level. Chez Vous: Hideaway Concept Salon is looking to completely revamp your haircare experience, from a simple errand to a luxurious and indulgent refuge. Hidden high up on level 14 of Ngee Ann City’s Tower B, the sense of reverie is enhanced as you step straight out of swarming Orchard Road into this haven.
Behind this establishment is the Chez Vous brand, who already operates the award winning Chez Vous salon a few floors down. The aim of Chez Vous: Hideaway is simply what it says: an invigorating spa-like experience that will transport you far from your worldly cares, and into a restful retreat for a few short hours.
A calm sanctuary, customers are promised a relaxed pampering session with zero fuss, all from the physical environment, right down to the staff, menu and treatment process itself. They’ve done away with the harsh lights from makeover stations and cramped spaces; the entrance is stylishly lit by neon signs which mark the beginning of your adventure, which will take you through 7 themed zones.
Whatever services you pick for the day, every guest is still entitled to the many soothing add-ons for that complete spa experience. Immerse yourself in rich aromatherapy, where your choice of essential oil will follow you from start to end, and your favourite scent will revisit you in your shampoos and massage session. Feel the tension leave your body as you go through their Swedish scalp massage and wrap up your session with a heated shoulder massage.
When it comes to your head of hair, they know just how to pamper it as well. If you’ve opted for any chemical or dyeing treatments, your scalp will receive some needed TLC in the form of bond strengthening hair shots and a gentle serum before it touches anything harsh. Even if you’re in for a basic haircut, your tresses will still be nourished with plasma powered scalp rejuvenation and ion scalp detoxification. All of these delights are complimentary, so you’re really getting your money’s worth.
The relaxation doesn’t stop there; footing your bill is a breeze, and you can bid farewell to the anxiety of turning down package offers and additional products you’ll never use. Chez Vous: HideAway promises no hidden costs, and keeps their menu simple. Absolutely no packages are involved, but instead you only have to pick from 1 of the 4 available tiers:
$199 for 2 services (Cut + 1 other service)
$299 for 3 services (Cut + 2 other services)
$399 for 4 services (Cut + 3 other services)
$499 for 5 services (Cut + 4 other services)
The best part about your trip to the salon is the feeling of luxury, indulging in a fine afternoon to reward yourself. Feel the exclusivity as you arrive early and discover the Chez Vous: HideAway Relaxation Lounge. As you sink into a full-body massage chair, grab a snack and sip on your personal selection of herbal tea. Reawaken your senses with a visit to the O2 bar for a dose of fresh oxygen, and some Red Light Laser Therapy that your scalp will thank you for.
As your day comes to a close, the spotlight returns to the day’s main purpose: your luscious locks. Chez Vous: HideAway’s goal of providing premium services undoubtedly extend to the stylists working on your hair. Experienced and up-to-date, they keep their commitment to giving you the best look possible. You’ll be in good hands, especially when the stylists are only allowed to take up to 5 appointments a day. This ensures you receive at least 2 hours of their undivided attention, with sufficient time for your makeover.
The cherry on top? We forgot to mention, Chez Vous: HideAway has a stunning interior, with extravagant and out-of-this-world furnishing that serve as Insta-worthy backdrops. Sheepishly taking photos in the mirror while you wait for your three-hour dye job to complete is now a thing of the past. The team at Chez Vous encourages you snap pictures and document your journey of luxury through their 1800 square foot space. With hours to kill and a new look to flaunt, why do it in shame?
The sprawling area feels almost like a maze, and you’re sure to be greeted with a little surprise with every step. Hogwarts is no longer just a dream with their regal library, complete with a life-sized painting that feels like you’re on your way into the Gryffindor common room. Just metres away is a millennial paradise- a minimalistic loft creates space for the stylists to work, with perfect lighting for the cutest selfies. As the hours go by, witness the salon make revolutionary transformations into pastel pink heavens and mystifying caves.
Your time at Chez Vous: HideAway Concept Salon will surely be fulfilling, with a ton of new pictures to glam up your feed, a bombshell makeover, and most of all, a restful rejuvenation for the soul.
