What's not to love about curly and wavy hair? Having bouncy, voluminous curls is enough to make anyone feel like a princess. But rather than spending time curling your hair every morning, perhaps the true way to live like a royal is to sit back, leave it to the professionals at a hair salon and waltz out with curls and waves that last for months on end.
Keep reading to check out the five best affordable hair salons in Singapore where you can get a perm without breaking the bank!
Established way back in 1994, Kimage is a boutique hair salon chain that now has 10 studios in Singapore. One thing about their hair stylists is that they focus on the customer's individuality and craft hairstyles to fit their personality and style.
Kimage hair studios have a cosy, minimalist and nature-inspired aesthetic which makes for a relaxing environment while you get your hair done. Their studios at Kovan and Plaza Singapura are particularly pretty with the overhanging greenery.
They have a value-for-money Trend Perm Package ($140 with e-voucher, U.P. $210) which includes a perm, haircut and post-perm treatment for long hair by a junior stylist*. You can get a variety of perm types that are right on trend, like S Curls, C Curls and Loose Waves. Purchase their e-voucher here to enjoy the savings and remember to read the T&Cs!
10 locations including Marina Square, Lot 1, Northpoint and Tiong Bahru (*Junior Stylist is only available at these four outlets. Trend Perm Package by Senior Stylist is available at all outlets.)

#2 Picasso Hair Studio
Founded in 2014, Picasso Hair Studio specialises in innovative perming services. The studio has 16 different perm styles in its catalog including Korean Wave Perm ($299) and their signature and best-selling Rebonding Perm ($409), which is a flattering combination of rebonding and perming for a smooth and volumised look. All perms include a haircut and Kérastase treatment which makes the price pretty worth it!
As expected from a hair salon named after a painter, the interior is decorated with artwork and the mirrors are designed to look like art easels.
Picasso also has innovative perms which can only be found here like the Cushion Perm ($409), a mix of c curls, s curls and root perm for that airy and textured look, and Freestyle perm ($359) pictured below, a customised perm mixing different techniques.
Before every perm, Picasso's hair designers will evaluate your face shape and understand your lifestyle needs before recommending a perm style. They will also teach customers how to blow dry their permed hair.
Their new perm lotion, Advante, is a gentle acidic lotion which acts as a treatment for the hair, giving it shine and softness. Unlike traditional perms which are alkaline and thus can be drying, this acidic perm lotion has a ph level of only 4.5. This makes it perfect for those who like changing up their hairstyle frequently.

#3 NAOKI Hair Dressing
NAOKI Hair Dressing is a Japanese hair salon that also has sister outlets in Tokyo, Japan. Many of their hair stylists are Japanese and they provide the whole "Omotenashi" experience with Japanese-style service. Another interesting thing about the salon is that they provide a 7-day guarantee. As haircuts can look different a day or more after the haircut due to hair type or condition, they provide a free assessment if you return within 7 days of your hair appointment.
They offer a range of affordable perm styles including Partial Perm (from $100), Cold Perm ($140 - $180) and Digital Perm ($250 - $300).
#4 Act Point Salon
Act Point Salon aims to make you feel at home at their salon while you get your hair done. The interior has a cosy industrial-style aesthetic with pops of greenery that'll make for nice photo backdrops after your hair is transformed.
