Being a woman is hard. You will need to think of a monthly spending over beauty services like mani pedi, brow embroidery, spas and of course, hair treatment. And even though sometimes it feels good to invest in some classy and boujee hair salons to experience the best hair treatment you can get, given the condition of our economy now, we have no choice but to start saving up for the safety of our future. Yes, I need to start taking my own advice.
Getting a hair treatment in Malaysia—especially around high-priced towns like KL and Petaling Jaya—can be costly. You request one simple trim and the next thing you know, you receive a bill with three figures attached at the bottom. Madness. But to be honest, there are actually a lot of hair salons located around the Klang Valley that offer treatments below RM 100 with professional servicing. Not to mention, some of the hair salons have an eye-catching ambience that’ll make you feel like you’re walking in a luxurious boutique.
Beauty Insider managed to find the best hair salons around you that literally won’t break your bank—but you will walk out with some good bangs instead. Check them out!
