Whether you’re having a bad day or just need some help transforming your ‘do to a party-worthy one, blowouts are the best kind of little guilty pleasures. Not only will you get to enjoy a relaxing head and shoulders massage, you’ll also emerge looking like a million bucks — who could ever say no to that? Whether you’re looking for a fuss-free blowout or a lavish pampering experience, here are the six best salons to head to where you can get perfectly coiffed hair by experienced stylists.
#1: COVO Singapore
Having been in Singapore for just over five years, COVO Hair Salon has been bringing top quality Japanese hair expertise to busy local urbanites.

All hair professionals also have at least 10 years of experience under their belt, so you can be sure you’re in good hands. Best part? The salon uses carbonated spring water instead of regular tap water as it is said to remove dirt and grime more effectively from hair and scalp. The stylists are also experts in hair colouring techniques and digital perm, making this an ideal one-stop shop for all your hair needs.
