Chez Vous: shā vu\adj Your Place. In French, ‘vis’ akin to Your House

When Chez Vous opened 20 years ago, its founders Thomas Teo and Riz Tan were committed to providing hair services at the highest standards, garnering a loyal following and putting them among the most sought after stylists in Singapore. Today, it is a 2,000 sq ft beauty powerhouse located in the heart of Orchard Road, offering a cutting edge range of signature treatments in an unpretentious yet sophisticated designer interior layout. With a one-of-a-kind “OHDA” (i.e. Only Hair Directors Allowed) policy in place, the salon ensures an unparalleled roster of beauty experts so that clients receive only the best service and advice in creating their individual style. OHDA means their beauty experts are Associate Salon Directors, Directors & Chief Directors only with minimum 10 years of experience, and many were previously salon owners themselves, or academy trainers, leading stylists and salon managers. Not only catered to the local scene, it also houses a Caucasian Specialist Team which has been reviewed and verified by Expat Living and Sassy Singapore editors.

Chez Vous’s vision has remained steadfast since its inception: to inspire possibilities, as well as provide 100% reliability and expertise through their accomplished hair maestros, to produce every customer’s true personality and glamour – in other words, keeping it all real. Because today’s digitised world now highlights beauty standards that most of the time are unrealistic – from body shapes to ageless faces and an infinite number of hair trends – Chez Vous, now more than ever, makes it a point to ensure that their approach is holistic, practical, real and always a pampering experience for its customers.

Chez Vous initiated the Expertligent Fix You Programme which sounds like savior for all beauty addicts who often experiment with new products or technologies, and more often than not, damage our own hair/skin/body :( Chez Vous’ team of directors-only hair professionals will receive any customers who have had unsatisfactory treatments or cuts at other salons and redress any damage done. Armed with a team of experts in various disciplines, Chez Vous is more than well equipped to fix and repair sub-optimal results of hair services such as colouring, cutting, straightening, perming, bleaching etc. This program is an ongoing initiative, and free of charge if there is a lapse of less than one week between the treatment in question and the customer’s visit to Chez Vous; this is limited to 1 customer a day and only from Sundays to Thursdays.

Not just that, Chez Vous other unique initiatives will also include cheeky by-appointment only makeover parties coined “Mix, Mingle, Makeover” as well as our #ThursdayisthenewFriday programme once a month where there will be a surprise treat for all guests e.g. macaroon and wine butler service, waive of bills etc., ongoing campaigns and efforts to support emerging designers. As a show of their support, Chez Vous’ shopfront will regularly be transformed by Singapore’s design personalities on the rise.

Yun Nam Hair Care Review 3

Have completed my Yun Nam Hair Care sponsored treatment sessions!
Previous posts are here

Previously mentioned, I have hair thinning problem, especially around the crown area and hair parting line. The herbal hair treatment from the first few sessions had helped greatly in deep cleansing of my scalp and reducing excessive oil secretion, preventing hair thinning problems and also dandruff issues.
I’m glad that my scalp and hair have been well-maintained throughout these months with Yun Nam Hair Care. The thinning crown is no longer a problem, yay!

Just a recap of past photos that show the hair thinning crisis at the top of my head.

Recent photos of my hair.


I had a dance performance recently that required hairdo with lots of back-comb and hairspray and glitters.
In spite of that, my hair still managed to remain strong and healthy after the two days of “torture”.


Had an appointment with Yun Nam Hair Care immediately the day after the performances. My hair was still pretty volumnious, see no crown thinning issue at all! :) (Just abit dry on the ends T.T)


The dry ends was all great again after the herbal treatment session!
I had a change of consultant as the previous one left the outlet. The new consultant/therapist was very nice and attentive. She customised a herbal concoction after checking my hair/scalp condition personally and even “interviewed” me on how I feel about my hair condition these days before deciding on the treatment for me – I needed a deep cleansing treatment after all the performance hair styling of cos! :D And deep conditioning as well.

The herbal treatment was applied to my scalp after a thorough hair wash.


(And there I was, catching-up on my magazine reading while enjoying the treatment lol)

Immediate photo taken after the treatment. Gone were all the (stubborn) glitters and residual hair spray/gel on my scalp.
Also, the dry hair ends were revived and the whole texture was really smooooth!

Brought some muffins over since it was my last session that day.

Had bridesmaid duties the weekend after and my hair remained quite obedient throughout.
Again, check out the fuller crown!


All these would not be achieved without the help of Yun Nam Hair Care products that I used faithfully at home too.

My favourite product would be the Charcoal Essence Shampoo which works most suitably for my scalp condition so far. I have almost finished the entire huge bottle of it even though I’ve been using only a little of the shampoo each wash.
Forgot to buy another bottle during my last session at Yun Nam Hair Care T.T

I usually use only twice of how much I poured onto my palm in this pic.


If you’re in need of hair care treatments or facing some hair problems, please head down to Yun Nam Hair Care for consultation to save your tresses now!
There’s a free trial if you’re a first timer – more details here:

Zalora Christmas Sale Online!

Hello! Been less active on social media these days because I’m so swamped with stuffs. I still update my IG (and fb sometimes) but don’t have time to look through comments or emails every so often. 
I believe that’s what many of my fellow blogger friends feel – we all have to handle our day jobs, family and friends, relationship, other commitments be it faith activities or side jobs or businesses, blogging hobby and events, and queries from readers. 

Looking at it all, it’s no wonder we spend so much on retail therapy lol, especially from online sites. Online shopping takes less time and effort to deliver the same kick of retail therapy. Plus, it matches to our schedule, allowing us some “me-time” in the wee hours or shopping even after the malls close.

Now even so when the Christmas season is nearing! 
Referring to one of the usual sites I would browse, I saw something that makes Christmas shopping/retail therapy even more awesome.

Yun Nam Hair Care Review 2

As mentioned in my previous post on my hair thinning issues, I’m happy to share that my oily scalp problem is now under control after undergoing several herbal hair treatments at Yun Nam Hair Care.
The herbal hair treatment aided in deep cleansing of the pores to remove dandruff and prevent oil secretion that is the root cause of dandruff/itchy scalp and hair loss problems.

I always wash my hair in the morning and very soon, by late afternoon, my fringe would have become oily from the secretion :(
After a few sessions of herbal hair treatment, the condition has greatly improved and I have no issues with oily fringes anymore! :*)

Not only that, my hair parting has become “less visible” and the crown of my head also appears fuller than before.
Here’s a pic taken a few months back which shows clearly the hair loss around the crown/hair parting area.

(May 2014)

And this taken just 2 months back, which shows a deterioration of the problem it seems :(
(July 2014)


I am so looking forward to more sessions of herbal treatments at Yun Nam Hair Care to improve my hair volume!
Some “After” photos taken over the past 2-3 weeks.

(September 2014)

Not only my oily scalp has been saved, my hair overall also appears smoother and healthier with a slight sheen after all the herbal pampering!

(September 2014)

Now that scalp is less oily, my herbal hair treatment concoctions are tweaked slightly to focus on hair growth and my therapist also added a little mint in the mixture to reduce any itchiness I might experience due to ‘dry’ dandruff instead of ‘oily’ dandruff in the past.

The treatment procedure is exactly the same as before and the herbal blend looks more or less similar as the previous one I’ve blogged about. I know what to expect from each treatment since Day 1 of the consultation session and need not worry about any unnecessary ‘surprises’ whenever I visit Yun Nam Hair Care.



On the set of products I’ve been religiously using, here’re a few of my personal favourites!
Left to right: Hair Nutritional Lotion 2, Hair Renewal Lotion, Charcoal Essence Shampoo, Herbalogy Ginseng Shampoo

I use these two shampoos interchangeably even though both have similar functions of reducing oily scalp and hair loss. The charcoal shampoo is said to be stronger and hence more ‘drying’ on the scalp so the therapist advised me to use it only on alternate days.

I’m not complaining though, because the alternative shampoo (Herbalogy Ginseng Shampoo) smells so nice and yummy!

Hair nutritional lotion 2 is to be mixed with the shampoo for usage. This lotion helps to infuse nutritions into the pores while the shampoo deep cleanses them.

After a hair wash, the hair renewal lotion is meant to be sprayed onto the scalp and leave-on to boost hair growth! I also feel that it acts like a serum to the hair that prevents it from drying out from the deep cleansing. In addition, it’s so convenient and easy to use!

For those facing hair-related problems, what are you waiting for? Click on Yun Nam Hair Care to find out more! Besides, for first timers, there are free trial redemption available here.

Hurry down to any of their stores listed below now :)
