Hair Salon Review: You Are My Sunshine takes things to a new level in Ngee Ann City, Lifestyle News


From the folks who brought us award-winning concept beauty salons – Leekaja Beauty Salon and Walking on Sunshine Salon & Cafe – comes yet another lifestyle destination, You Are My Sunshine.

Spanning 8,000 square feet of personal care space in Ngee Ann City, expect an upscale full-service beauty salon, Korean-Western fusion dishes in their cafe, as well as a corner of retail store filled with home decor and beauty products.

With interiors inspired by a sunny Mediterranean oasis, the group’s third and largest salon in Singapore is home to a team of internationally trained hairdressers, comprised primarily of directors and senior stylists. The understated luxury experience begins when you cross the threshold – the waiting lounge is soothing with natural hues, accented by lots of greenery.


Unlike most salons, You Are My Sunshine offers a more intimate experience with semi-private treatment cabins. Equipped with comfortable custom chairs that lift and fold down next to private shampoo stations – there’s no need to leave your perch to wash your hair – their personalized service is top notch. Plus, there’s an 8-day promise for extra peace of mind. Dissatisfied with the results? Return within eight days for a touch-up at no additional cost.


Specializing in hair coloring, the salon uses vegan, cruelty-free and Halal Number Three (NO3) certified products that come in three different ranges that cater to different hairstyles, needs and concerns.

Going into the experiment with thin hair and pink underlights, senior stylist Eddie recommended pairing two different colors to take full advantage of previously bleached hair. For a longer lasting hue, I went with dark purple, which has faded to a pastel purple over the past month that still pairs well with the cool brown he chose.

To add volume, Eddie gave me curtain bangs (a trendy hairstyle that many Korean celebrities sport) that frame the face on both sides. A cut that suits all face shapes, it also goes well with my natural middle parting.


For a lounge that looks good and feels good, it’s no surprise that they’ve also dedicated space for those of you after Instagram-friendly spots. Prices range from $80 for a wash, cut and blowout and $180 for color, to magic perms ($510 for extra long hair).

You Are My Sunshine is located at #05-05A Ngee Ann City, 391B Orchard Road, Singapore 238874. Lounge open 10am-8pm daily, Cafe open 11am-10pm.
