Essensuals is located at Bugis Village, directly above Burger King (enter from the staircase by the side). I liked the space the moment I walked into it - modern, clean with lots of natural lighting - always puts me in a relaxed mood.
Service was warm and welcoming. The stylist Gina patiently discussed the hair style I wanted with me after I announced I wanted the Haircut, Blowdry and Treatment option at $50 nett (!!!) option. Check out the other fab deals they offer.
First, the hair wash. I was impressed when the shampoo boy (sorry, for lack of a better term) asked if I preferred cold or warm water. It was an unhurried relaxing 10 minute wash at the sink. Next, they did the 20 minute hair treatment using this impressive looking steam/heating contraption. Finally, the haircut - to Gina's credit, she understood my anxiety at cutting bangs and suggested a "progressive approach". Oops, difficult customer I am. She just earned for herself a returning customer. At these prices, I am tempted to get some khaki highlights soon.
