Looking for a Korean hairstylist in Singapore? Try Kevin Gim of Dusol Beauty, Novena Square 2

Ok, this is a rather overdue post – I often get questions asking me about decent Korean hairstylists in Singapore (since not everyone is as insane as me as to jet off to Korea every 3-4 months just to get my hair done with my favourite Jei at Sinchon). Here’s one Korean hairstylist that seems relatively decent, and not that overpriced. I had a hair treatment done with Kevin Gim of Dusol Beauty on the 3rd floor of Novena Square 2 (located just above Novena MRT station). Note that they have another branch at City Hall MRT, Raffles City Shopping Centre as well.

I noticed similarities in the way he did the treatment for me to the times I did it in Korea – so yes, legit Korean hair services available here.

He gave relatively good advice to my friend regarding her sudden impulse decision to cut bangs (“no, you’ll look older and your face will look broader”). He also did a rather okay job with my fringe (but then again, I have a super hard-to-manage finicky fringe that only Jei seems to be able to control). He did listen to my instructions (nagging) pretty well and avoided giving the body of my hair too many layers. Overall, a rather decent hairstylist if you’re looking for an affordable Korean hairstylist to head to.

Want to book an appointment with him? Here are his deets:

Just dyed my hair there earlier this week (and I paid for it!), and I’m pretty happy with the results ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s a nice vibrant red and no bleaching was required. hohoho. For hair lengths like mine (aka long), prices start from $138+ onwards.

  1. Hi Cheryl,

    I chanced upon your blog and just wanted to ask if you have tried digital perm with Dusol Beauty? It’s my first time getting my hair perm (c-curl) and I hope to find somewhere reliable to do so ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks!

    • Hello!

      I’ve never tried a perm there before, although I have tried dyes, cuts and treatments. I actually recently permed my hair at LeeKaJa at Mandarin Gallery. It’s a rather large a reputable chain from Korea, and they did give me pretty decent curls for about $300 (long hair, senior stylist level). You can give them a try! My stylist is Jenny Kang. They have other Korean stylists too ๐Ÿ™‚
