In need of some pampering for the weekend? Give yourself a relaxing hour for a hair wash, head massage and blowout for hair that’s exactly as big and bouncy, or straight and silky as you dream. Here are five of the best hair salons in Kuala Lumpur to give you that perfect blowout that’ll last through Saturday parties and Sunday brunch.
Centro Hair Salon first opened up in 2002 with a humble outlet in Sungei Wang Plaza. The salon grew in popularity and moved to its new and current address in The Gardens Mall, where its team of hairstylists is led by Creative Director and L’Oreal Color Trophy winner Kevin Woo.
COCOdry is not your typical hair salon. It doesn’t offer cuts or colouring, and instead specialises in the best blowouts. Customers can choose from different hairstyles like beach waves and the ‘Crazy Rich Asians’, while optionally adding on hair treatments. A VIP room is available.
After huge success with 190 branches worldwide in countries like Australia, the United States and China, LeeKaJa makes it debut in Malaysia at Robinson, Four Seasons Place. The 3,500 sqft. space includes an in-house cafe and LeeKaJa also offers K-beauty treatments like Korean perms and facials.
Number76 was founded by Daisuke Hamaguchi in 2001, Tokyo. It was then called HairStyleShop Nalu; a two-man show with Hamaguchi and his assistant. Number76 has expanded to Jakarta, Singapore and Malaysia. Of its six outlets in Kuala Lumpur, the Bangsar outlet remains the most popular with appointments booked out sometimes weeks in advance.
Located in Plaza Batai, SimpliDry is the neighbour blowdry parlour for a quick makeover. Opening hours are from 7.30am -7.30pm on weekdays and from 9am – 7pm on weekends, with appointments necessary.
