The Japanese have great attention to detail when it comes to the manufacturing of their cars, crafting a cocktail, and cutting hair. Therefore, I was intrigued by the review of Covo by Ute L., and I stopped by for my first haircut in Singapore. After moving to 5 different cities in the past decade, I can tell you that finding a hair stylist in a new town can be traumatic. Fortunately, my hair grows very quickly and even a bad cut is temporary. But with Covo, my first trip was impressive and I've already found my salon in Singapore. The shampoo is truly amazing. I've never had a shampoo with carbonated spring water, but they make an interesting case on how it effectively removes oil or sebum from your scalp. My stylist was also Ryu (or Marco) and communicating with him was a breeze and end result was exactly what I had in mind - actually even better. He also offered solid advice on products and how to style my hair in the heat and humidity. Price for a men's cut was $90, which is similar to my stylist in Seattle and much cheaper than my stylist in SF. Although Covo primarily has Japanese customers, I would definitely recommend the salon for anyone looking for a detailed cut. It's not as luxurious or posh as some of the other high end salons, but I love the small boutique feel of the place and attention to detail.
Japanese concept hair salon with products from Japan. Beautiful clean salon with friendly, young and trendy staff. You guessed it, they are also from Japan. They've only been open for a couple of years but were well visited. Start your hour of relaxation with a nice shampoo in their reclining chairs. These are the most comfortable shampoo chairs I've ever sat in, you actually lie down so your neck isn't in that awkward bent back position.
My stylist Marco was phenomenal, even threw in a neck & shoulder massage after my shampoo. I have a short hairstyle that's not easy to style (growing out a faux hawk) and Marco did a great job making it look like an actual hairstyle.
Happened to be right next to my hotel, the Naumi Liora. Highly recommend this place.
Shampoo and blow out came to S$28 since they were running a new client special.
