Lousiest hair salon in Far East Plaza!!! DO NOT GO!

BEWARE: Mind's Salon at Far east plaza.Location: #04-09
Tel: 62211379
Hair Stylist: Marcus (Cheena)


guys! DO NOT, DO NOT visit this hair salon to have ur hair cut!
it's e worst experience of hair cutting throughout my life.
i was visiting far east plaza when i came upon Mind's salon. after considering that my hair was quite out of shape n thick now, i decided to cut my hair toge with 2 of my friends.

this guy (marcus), who know no english at all, approached us. so i asked him how much it is for a uni student's haircut in mandarin. he mentioned tt it's $20 for uni students n $15 for a sec/jc student. e price was rather cheap as compared to other hair salons in far east, considering tt it's a saturday.

so we went in.
one of my friens (luckier one) got his senior to cut for her. she has a not bad hair cut experience which lasted for close to 2 hrs.

BUT.
for me n another friend B, we experienced e worst hair cut ever!


i told him tt i wanted to trim my hair abit n let it grow longer as i have short bob hair. so he assumed that i just wanted to thin my hair!
initially, he just took a thinning-hair kind of scissors to "thin" my hair n layered it. i tot he was going to cut somemore but after washing my hair (with no massage done wad's so ever), he blow-dried my hair n told me tt he's done! omg..
i had a shock when i saw how horrendous he made my hair! it became so thin below but thick at the top of my head! -_-

throughout e whole process of cutting, i did not voice out my unhappiness to his way of cutting coz i tot he was still going to cut my hair somemore into a shape! tt's y i waited for him to do something more to fix it but instead, he told me im ready to go just after 15 mins!

helloooo... my friend n i paid e same price for the hair cut n i only got 15 mins while she had a close to 2 hrs haircut. where's e fairness?! wad's more, our hair length is abt e same!



while he was handling my hair, he pushed my head rather powerfully too! i dunno y he was so rough n was in such a hurry coz it's rather clear he doesnt have many customers also!
after cutting our hairs, he was just loithering around waiting for another customer (victim)!
just becoz he wants to earn more money per day, he cut our hair skimpily n took more customers?!?!?! wad e hell.

after being unhappy with his attitude n cutting skills, i still paid e $20 quietly. but in e end, his "boss", a mid forties lady with long rebonded red hair n thick make-up, told him tt uni students are considered adults n e price shld b $25 instead!!
i was damn pissed at tt time after he told me it shld b $25 instead meekly.
i snapped n told him tt i will not b cutting e hair if i knew it was $25! i refused to pay n told e "boss" tt it was marcus who told me it's $20. they had no choice but to let me go since i refused to pay e extra 5 bucks.

if i knew it's going to b such a bad experience for my friends n i, i WOULD NOT have stepped into it!
so i really do not recommend anyone to go there for ur hair cut!!

PS i have no intention to insult china ppl but if they do not noe how to cut hair n speak english, i would suggest they go brush up their skills b4 cutting!!

arghh..

anyway, i vented my anger on another colleague of his when she tried to explain to me e situation n i TOLD her im not coming bk to this salon EVER AGAIN!
wahhaa

Re: Lousiest hair salon in Far East Plaza!! DO NOT GO!

i have worst experience of hair cutting too! Hair Plus Today located at FEP as well. I thought I'd really be amazed by their professionalism (i learnt my lesson already, not to be taken in too easily esp when they claimed their hairdressers are really good). I decided to give it a try and told them what I wanted but end up, that hairdresser merely trim abit of my hair at the bottom and fringe, and then used the wax gel to style the upper layer for me. When my friend saw it, she asked 'isn't that too mature for her(referring to me)? she looked like a doll leh'

-_____-" !!!!!!

Apparently that so-called professional hairdresser doesn't know which style suits whatever look, and expected me to follow the 'trend' as well.

Wasted more than an hour of my time and what? $40 flew off just like that.

it's really hard to find a good salons. even if you tell them (esp the so called professional ones) the kind of style you want, end up it's all screwed up and waste money. unless he/she's whom everyone recommends and gives good reviews!

Ya I do agree that if you found someone that you are confortable with you should stick with them.

I also dont like the Icon salon located at Isetan Orchard. The hairstylist there always seems to be rushing your hair cut and not offering more suggestions. Or else most of the time, they will want you to do this do that and pay more money or else buy products. I dont kind of like it and dont feel comfortable at all with them. It is also hard to get the same hair stylist to do for you.

I think there looks like A&E in the hospital. Lol

Re: Lousiest hair salon in Far East Plaza!! DO NOT GO!

Yeah...it's good advice that if already have a good stylist, then don't change. I've taken a risk more than once, becoz my usual stylist not around....& the result has always been not good. I go to QB, Bugis outlet only. Even different outlets cannot.

But then again...I am at the moment, considering getting a haircut from someone who posted free haircuts here. Going to have a look first to see how...

Lol!

I think salons now have reduced their prices, compared to many years ago when they used to charge more than $60 just for haircut, wash & blow dry. So, service slacks too...

No le some of the hair salons still charge quite ex for their senior hairstylist or director.... Well my verdict is if you have the money and dont feel the pinch, you can go spend this type of $ but not then find 1 reasonable withnin your means....
