Fans of top Korean hairstylist Joel Park, Rejoice!
We’ve FINALLY found him at his humble new hair salon: Hair Mori Korean
Previously from La Coco at Orchard Central, Joel was highly sought after in Hardwarezone and other forums for his beautiful digital perms and Korean style haircut that is super soft and easy to maintain!
It was a little surprising for us to find such a highly raved Korean stylist in a rather quiet corner on Level 2 of The Centrepoint.
From the outside, the salon looks like a typical hair salon. But we love the small little things Joel put in place on the inside.
With the aim of letting his customers experience the best of Korea within his hair salon, Joel uses as many quality Korean products as possible within the salon. This includes Korean Shampoos, Korean Conditioners, Korean Neutralizer, Korean Secret Treatment – even the tea they serve customers is from Korea!
This is important to Joel because he knows exactly which Korean products are superior and therefore uses only the best for his customers. The shampoo and conditioner, for example, has a lower pH than usual shampoos and conditioners, allowing the customers’ perm and colour results to sustain longer!
(Just in case you are wondering, the shampoos and conditioners are not for sale!)
Joel also brought in the LATEST hair treatment currently used by 5 top hair salons in Gangnam. He considers this his “Secret Treatment” as they contain more keratin amino acid than any other treatments out there! This way, customers’ hair become really soft after the treatment.
His emphasis on using only quality hair products on customers’ hair and his widely raved skill are possibly the major reasons why SO MANY customers follow him from La Coco to Hair Mori. In fact, his appointment book is often full… you’ll have to make an appointment at least 1 week before!
Joel is not the only Korean stylist working at Hair Mori though. He is currently working with Max Kim, a highly capable Korean stylist who was previously in Ji Won Hair Salon and later La Coco. Due to his previous experience in Singapore, Max is able to converse in English and understand the needs of Singapore ladies. While Joel’s perm is still among the best we’ve seen, Max is not far behind with the natural soft curls he is really good at. In fact, we would also highly recommend Max for Men’s Perm. Not many hairstylists know how to create volume for men without making the hair excessively wavy – Max knows just what to do to give men that extra oomph!
Overall, we find Hair Mori a gem among Korean Hair Salons in Singapore. There aren’t that many Korean hair salons with Skilled Korean stylists who understand Singapore hair and can speak English relatively well. Hair Mori is one of the few authentic Korean salon with hairstylists that actually possess great skills!
Remember to come back and thank us if you manage to get the hair you’ve always dreamed of at Hair Mori!
