Stylist : Jeffrey Hoe
Reviews for Pro Trim on the internet were not that favourable in general but thankfully, my experience has been a pleasant, quiet and fast affair.
The salon gave me a clean, spacious and quiet vibe, in their choices of layout, colour and cleanliness.
The full length mirror in front of every seat is a bane to ladies who wear short skirts but a boon to male gawking. No doubt you do get covered up by a full length overcoat but it was changed 3 times during my 2 hours session, so there are some decent seating that is required during the changing of overcoat. Get my drift?
Another pet peeve is the ultra small black table beside the mirror, that can barely slip in 3 or 4 magazines. The table top is where I place my bag. No hooks for my big umbrella and it slipped on the floor twice. The shampoo boy, Paul was really nice enough to pick it up on both times.
Jeffrey spoke to me in a mixture of Mandarin and English, though mainly in Mandarin than the latter. He looked to be in his 40s and is softspoken. No pushy hard sell, though he did try to recommend treatment for my hair condition. He backed away when I told him I am not keen in colouring jobs and there was no mention about it again.
The tea was served quite late, halfway thru my haircut. He was nice and patient in trying to detangle the hair knots for me, before proceeding to cut my hair. After the haircut, he passed me over to Paul, a quiet and unassuming young chap for dandruff treatment, using Keratase ampoule on the scalp, massage on the hair, followed by Keratase shampoo-ing and a Keratase leave-on treatment on the scalp.
Jeffrey was considerate enough to pass me an additional Her World April magazine ( telling me, its the latest ) before moving on to his next customer.
Everyone worked thru their jobs quietly, with a quiet zest and professionalism. After the whole treatment is done, Jeffrey is back again, to ask me if I am satisfied with the haircut and if further trimming is necessary.
The end result of the haircut is quite average though, just softer and more layers.
Total Damage : $38 (Haircut) + $83 (Dandruff Treatment) = $121
