I walked into the future of hair salons at U-Hair: A salon with smart mirrors and hi-tech chairs

I have always had blunt straight hair and have been mostly shy of trying anything new or untraditional for that matter. May be, that’s because I didn’t know what would suit me and what can be he range that I can try without pushing myself way too out of my comfort zone. That’s why I’m glad I visited U-hair where smart mirrors and experienced stylists showed me what could look good on me before we actually did the cut/styling!

At some point, we’ve all faced the same concerns when we visit a hair salon – haircuts that are too short, hair perms that may not suit our face shape, and vibrant colours that may dull our features. We may worry that the style we picked out won’t turn out to be what we had in mind, and that makes us a little conscious in visiting a hair salon.

Get accurate and personalized hair recommendations with JiNG

Technology has become a widely used aspect of our everyday lives, and it is finally time for salons to use it to their advantage as well! U-Hair introduces its new outlet at Jurong Point, which is the first hair salon in Singapore to have its mirrors installed with JìNG, a realistic and personalized augmented reality experience that uses patented technology to precisely map and analyse data to provide customers with accurate and personalized hair recommendations in real life.

JìNG helps to transform existing mirrors into new spaces to display information, animation and other forms of content that are both interactive and AI-powered. The integration of SMART A.I. Mirrors functions as a seamless consultation for hairstylists and consultants to communicate with their customers, providing more details, accuracies and variations based on their age, lifestyle, outfits, and more. One of JìNG’s features is able to store information about the hairstylist and their past portfolio to share with their customers. JìNG is also easily able to show and educate its customers on their suitable hairstyles. Furthermore, JìNG technology functions on both Android and iOS software. U-Hair is the first hair salon in Singapore to integrate the SMART A.I. Mirror to seamlessly smooth out their hair consultation process.

Other than just having SMART A.I. mirrors, U-Hair provides comfort to both hairstylists and customers with the use of TAKARA BELMONT LUAR Salon Chairs that I got to try! The chair combines first-class comfort with superb operability that enables their hairstylists to work smoothly and efficiently. The chairs are compactly equipped with a full flat reclining mechanism that helps to distribute body pressure during shampooing and relieves stress on the neck, and other useful functions, all to enhance the quality and value of salon services.

Aside from having their usual basin area, U-Hair also uses TAKARA BELMONT YUME OASIS Backwash Unit to carry comfortably around the salon for greater freedom for their customers and salon! It helps to create private time, space and freedom. These features and added services take the experience between hairstylists or scalp therapist and their customers to the next level.

U-Hair currently sits at 968.75sqft, has 8 seats available, 1 VVIP room, which showcase both their premium automated chairs and backwash units, and has 3 basin areas for their regular customers.

On top of their tech-savvy, advanced equipment, U-Hair also offers a hair and/or scalp treatment curated just for their customers.

U-Hair’s viege treatment is the best!

Viege Treatment is a treatment that provides anti-aging solutions to the scalp and hair, with the use of ingredients such as Chia seed oil, Quinoa seed oil and Pistachio seed oil. It targets the hair, providing both a natural bounce and suppleness to the ends for better manageability. The menu is simply designed to create beautiful, bouncy hair so that clients can enjoy their hairstyles more. The treatment itself combines keratin, cystine, collagen, and elastin with a platinum nanoparticle to create a cortex reinforcing ingredient to penetrate into the hair to support them.

While the components help the cuticle layers to stick closely together, they provide support to the cuticle that has become thinner, and restore the elasticity of the cuticle to moisturize the hair. The elasticity care components penetrates the cortex and cuticles of the hair and becomes firmly fixed in the hair by thermal reactions to strengthen the adhesion bond, and to boost the effects of the entire treatment for long-lasting effects.

Viege Active targets the scalp and conditions it to become a healthy scalp to restore the suppleness and resilience of the hair. Viege Active ensures that the ingredients in works effectively and loosens the tension on the head by massaging it to promote the flow of lymphatic fluid and blood that builds up from the thinning of the scalp.

To target the different scalp conditions, each product contains different ingredients, such as Lemon AHA, carrot root extract, cucurbita pepo fruit extract, and eucalyptus leaf extract for Balance Suppli, which targets sticky scalps.

For individuals with dry scalp, they use the Soothing Suppli, Okra polysaccharides and Aloe Vera polysaccharides for moisturization, broccoli and celery extract, and five types of herb essence (Tilla cordata flower extract, chamomile flower extract, rosemary leaves extract, purple root extract, glycyrrhizin acid 2K).

For individuals with scalps that lack vitality, U-Hair would recommend the Vital Suppli, which warms a tired scalp pleasantly and promote blood circulation. Their ingredient list includes red ginger, red wine, and pomegranate fruit extract to vitalize and moisturize the scalp.

One session of Viege Treatment is priced at S$318, before GST.

Step into an avant-garde, technological-driven hair salon and allow the future to provide your hair and scalp the best treatments they deserve with U-Hair!
