I had a mini hair makeover done 2 weeks back at Clover Hair Boutique!
Clover Hair Boutique is a hair salon located near the entrance of Far East Plaza! The salon is really clean and gives me a really atas feel.
I was assigned to Leeli to style my hair and Nicholas to dye!
How my hair looks BEFORE magic was done:
Photo credits to Leeli.
Very layered, dry, and unevenly coloured due to my previous hair colour which consisted of 3 different colours. I was told by the salon where I previously got my hair done that my hair colour would be uneven for a looong time.
Leeli was very patient in explaining to me what he would be doing with my hair, making sure he wouldnt do anything I dont want (e.g. cutting my hair too short).
First, Leeli washed and cut my hair.
After the hair cut.
Before dyeing while waiting for Leeli to get the black coat! (They use the white coat for when cutting hair and the black one when dyeing so the white coats wouldnt be stained. White coats stained with dye marks look really nasty.)
Next, dyeing of my hair!
Finally, after drying and styling my hair
The final results!!

Hair without styling. Ash highlight is more obvious in the day or under good lighting.
Back of my hair. Super evenly coloured!! Boyfriend even commented that my hair looks and feels a lot healthier now HEHE YAY!
Nicholas is standing on my left, Leeli on my right.
Leeli is not only super friendly and comfortable to chat with, he is an extremely meticulous and gentle hairdresser! Even though my hair was highly dry and tangled, he made sure to untangle them really gently, being careful not to hurt my scalp. Before washing my hair, hell ask if I prefer warm or cold water (the first time Ive been ask this question, Ive always been blasted with cold water T_T). He was soo gentle I dozed off several times while he was doing my hair I really appreciate having hairdressers like him, turning the long dreaded hours sitting in the salon into an enjoyable experience!
So if you are looking for a hair stylist who is gentle in handling your hair and scalp, at the same time also really patient and efficient, look for Leeli! (He seems to have quite a lot of customers looking for him so do call the salon and book in advance!)
Nicholas on the other hand was focusing on the dyeing of my hair. With instructions from Leeli, he made sure my hair was evenly coloured. I didnt think that was possible due to what the stylist from the previous salon told me (that my hair colour would be uneven for a long time) but Nicholas made it possible!! The ash part of my hair had to be bleached and because I had red hair for awhile previously, the bleach colour took a pretty long time to show evenly, but Nicholas and Leeli were really patient! Best dye job Ive done so far for sure. He was really friendly too!
If are looking for a hair stylist you can 100% trust in dyeing your hair, especially in evening out uneven hair colour (e.g. dip dye, highlights, etc.), look for Nicholas!
I told them I had to rush off elsewhere at 8pm and they kept reminding each other, my hair was done and I was ready to leave by 7.50pm!!
Make sure to look for Leeli and Nicholas when you visit Clover Hair Boutique!
All the staff I interacted with at Clover Hair Boutique are friendly and approachable people. I asked one of them to take a picture of me with Leeli and Nicholas and he went 1 2 3 4 56 7 and took like 5 photos wth LOL!!
I noticed this place on my way to find a good hair salon. Before I decided to go for it, I strolled around the Far East Plaza (which seems to have several salon options). Clover appeared to the the busiest salon out of them, perhaps it's due to the location. Without an appointment they were still able to squeeze me in, however, my stylist appeared to be on a time crunch since he had to run back and forth between clients. When discussing what to do with my hair, I too was recommended a strait cut (see previous review) to give it a healthier, neater look. The guy cutting my hair did a good job with this simple hair style, but it seems like strait cuts is their thing.
1)Clover Hair Boutique @ Far East Plaza.
2)For my length it cost $186.20 including bleaching but price was after 30 percent off. How to get discount? Just like their Facebook page and you will see a link on their recent timeline updates.
3)Yes, I am very satisfied with the results and their customer service was really good.
4)Yup, my hair was bleached only once.
5)Most of my pictures made my hair look like its bright red because of the background lighting but the exact color is red-violet.
At first, I thought my hair would turn out to be super dry due to bleaching BUT I was wrong!! My hair still remains like how it was before bleaching it and because I was indecisive whether to dye red-violet or just red, my hairstylist (Lois) actually mix the colors for me and I am really happy with the outcome.
Im probably gonna try red (really bright red) next time when my hair grows longer^^
I really love the color of my hair in the picture just directly below this whole paragraph but sad to say its so bright due to the sunlight, in real life not as bright la:(
Now you guys know why I intend to try dying a brighter red in future right~~~ I dont really care if bright red doesnt suit me because Im just so in love with that color.
As for now, Ill just appreciate my red-violet:)
I visited Clover quite awhile ago requiring a simple trim. I was unsure of how to cut my hair so I consulted my hairdresser and was advised on a simple straight cut as opposed to my previously layered hair. The cut was executed quickly and perfectly, just as I'd imagined it'd look. It was an enjoyable experience as well, chatting about random things to while the time away. It costed $48 in total for wash, cut and blow which is quite reasonable given my long hair.
I have short hair now.. but i am happy (at least for now! maybe youll hear me rant when i have trouble styling it myself haha)!
Zabby is amazing, she cut exactly how i wanted. EXACTLY! Ive finally found the perfect hair stylist. Hehehehe i really really like my hair! This is probably the only salon other than KR+ (i get good head massages at KR+ though) that i am really satisfied with and it is so much cheaper! Zabby even taught me the right way to blow my hair, and how to achieve the bouncy waves at the bottom. Will never patronise other salons now, hahahaha
OMG, i still cannot believe i have short hair now!
Comments: hello there! i did my hair at clover hair salon located at far east plaza, #03-12.
zabby was my hairstylist but she has since left.
keida is my hairstylist now and i would say, he is equally good!
My choice is Zabby from Clover too~ Attentive to how I wanted to cut my hair all the while from the beginning to the end! Im very fussy with my hairstyle, but she tries to understand what I want and gave me what I want!.
zabby from clover
she did everything herself from the start till the end..no assistance from anyone at all for the whole 4 hours
the result was great and i like it
was not pushy..she showed me some treatment product which she applied on my hair for free and i thought she was going to push the product to mebut nope! i asked for a bottle myself in the end (:
prices are a bit pricey thoughcost me $300+ in totaland that was after 48% off for the chemical treatments
will definitely go there for the treatment and regular cut again though
hope they wont disappoint me.

hi. i went to the Clover Hair Salon at FEP 2days ago.
ok. not bad. was quite satifisfied. my hair was cut my zeida.
he gave me suggestions on my hair.
btw it was $30 for cut, wash and blow dry.
overall not bad..
The result I got for my hairdo at the other salon (Clover Hair Salon, #03-12) really satisfied me big time! The hair stylist there is meticulous and more professional. Their skills is definitely worth the price. Any styling for ONLY $28! If you happen to have a wedding to attend in town, you can set your hair at this shop.
