Don't cut hair at Snip Avenue!!!!

Snip Avenue is a hair salon that has a few branches around Singapore. All their branches are located at HDBs because they are HDB hair salon but it looks quite 'high class' from the outside.

On the outside of the salon, there are a lot of price list stating promotions at insanely cheap prices. Hair cut $4.80 for all length, dye hair $18 (S), $28 (M) $38 (L) and everything else like hair treatments, rebonding and perming all that also very cheap.

And of course, since its so cheap and the place looks high class enough, i decided to go dye hair together with my mum despite reading bad reviews about the service of this salon from other forums. I thought since so cheap, no harm giving it a try ma, not nice then forget it lo.

We went in, settled down and choose the colours we want to dye. My hair is only touching shoulder, i consider it medium length lei, they say is long. ok nvm, $10 diff nia. I wanted to do dye + highlight, so sld be $38 + $38 = $76 only ma. My stylist bring a book show me price list then say so total do package de lo $118, more worth it ma. I got a shock of my life can? how come $118 when outside put $38. Then she say $38 is for dunno wad lao ya brand hair dye, i using l'oreal for you, better quality ma, so will be $58!!!

Wah lao...damn scamming lo they all...zzz...i say don't want, i want the cheap de, then they lyk super bu shuang lidat. I think the hair stylist earn commission de. Then they keep on pushing you to do treatment and all that, like just interested to earn commision nia. My aunt was with us, they ask her to do what scalp treatment cause my aunt got hair fall problem ma. My aunt say ok, then the stylist go take 1 small bottle of dunno wad thing, massage into my aunt hair, leave it there for abt 5 mins nia then done liao! lidat considered treatment meh?!?!?!?! $25 lei!!!

Then hor..the hair dye results like so so only lo. Mine still accecptable la, my mum's one she finds it ugly lei...not much colour also. I think bcos its cheap lo, the ppl dere dun bother to make an effort to do a good job.

So in conclusion, this is just to warn everyone not to be lured in by the prices seen outside the salon. The stylist will always find ways to make you spend more de lo! Their hair cut also cannot make it de, cut and no cut no diff de lo,,,just snip snip abit considered cut liao...zzzz. DUN GO THERE!!! pay abit more go somewhere better!

Ya...from outside they put lidat...seems like cheap and considred a good deal ma. Their branch at bendemeer is always packed lo. Probably all lured in by the cheap prices. Scam de lo, when want to use brands like l'oreal or shiseido they charge more. Then keep on pushing you to buy products and spend more money de lei.

No offense really, then you still complain for what?
Bad reviews should be enough to deter you from patronising their shops.

Re: Don't cut hair at Snip Avenue!!!!

I think it depends on greatly who 'did' your hair.
My bf looks okay after cutting his hair.

The hair dye thing is like common, everywhere also like that. Push you to do treatment, etc. So which outlet you went to?

Re: Don't cut hair at Snip Avenue!!!!

i went to the bendemeer outlet. yuppsss...it depends who does it. There are some gd reviews abt this salon. But more bad then good reviews la =x

And yup..alot of places push you to do treatment and all that. But still, i feel that this place not very honest abt their prices lei...service attitude also no gd. From my personal experience, i don't think its worth it to go. Other places you pay the same amt or even lesser and you get better service and maybe better results. LOL

Re: Don't cut hair at Snip Avenue!!!!

LOL...
Few months back...
When i tell them to trim off around 2~1 inch of my hair but the hair dresser go trim off 3~4 cm of my hair.
=/

Just visited snip avenue again few mins ago to get my hair trimmed.
Was rather tempted to go for the goldwell hair treatment...
But since theres so many negative comments about them using conditioner as treatment...
I guess i ain't going for it anymore.

It was good when they started, providing drinks and magazine to read when you're waiting.
The hair dressers there initially were good too.
Especially darren(not there anymore) from the yishun branch.
But they left i guess...due to too little commission?
