Salon Spectrum

Salon SpectrumOverview
Owner and stylist Dior Tsoi set up his salon three years ago when he saw a gap in the market for intimate salons with a chilled vibe. He tells Time Out: “I want to give my clients more privacy. Our hair care service is about catering for the needs of each individual.” Tsoi also styles local celebrities.

Services
Generally men who subscribe to Fantastic Man.

The people
As this is a small salon, you’ll most likely be handled by Tsoi himself, who trained at the Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel salon 15 years ago. After stints at various barbers (including an Italian salon), he opened Spectrum.

Best for
Slick and modern men who shop at Initial and I.T.

Prices
HK$500 for a haircut, HK$650 for colour and HK$850 for a perm.

Address: 3/F Honytex Bldg, 22 Ashley Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui

This hair joint has two established branches on Wyndham Street and in Repulse Bay; their latest salon in SoHo opened last year. Their student academy on Wyndham offers basic hair services from HK$80, which sees students working under their instructors’ supervision. Did we mention you can sip wine on the house and order a steak from Wagyu Lounge downstairs?

Services
Everything hair-related.

The people
Patrick Chu, founder of Toni&Guy HK and a graduate of T&G’s London Academy leads the team (all professionally trained).
