RM5 for a HairCut? I live to tell…

YES!  And it includes a hair wash and blow!


I’d been seeing this promotional signage at the AIM MAX hair salon along Greenlane for a few weeks now, since I use this same route every day.  I was tempted to try out the RM5 promotional wash, cut and blow, which I learnt would be done by students in the haircut academy.  I didn’t mind that fact though, because I know that the students would be supervised by the senior stylists, and also I did not intend to change my hairstyle yet, so a simple trim and tidying up for RM5 would not be that big a deal…

I finally went for my session last week, and here’s what I thought and went through:

  • The wash, cut and blow was done in the training area (upstairs) and not in the salon proper, so in terms of comfort and aesthetic feel, it was certainly lacking.  Not a problem if that’s not what you want.
  • There aren’t many magazines to browse through though.  I was provided with a Chinese fashion magazine, which I tired of after 15 minutes or so.
  • The staff was very friendly and offered a smile when I arrived.
  • Hair wash was okay, and the additional massaging did wonders to ease away the stress.  But I was a little worried because the person washing my hair had rather long nails.  I was afraid my scalp would get scratched!  Shampoo smelled divine though. 🙂
  • Haircut was okay.  I only wanted an inch or two off my back and a little bit of layering.  The student who cut my hair had to refer to her senior stylist 2-3 times and the senior stylist then demonstrated the way to cut my hair.
  • The whole process of washing, cutting and blowing took about 1.5 hours, which wasn’t too bad, and my hair definitely felt sleeker 🙂
  • All for RM5?  Definitely worth it!

Can you tell the difference? 🙂  Takes a trained eye to do it, ya know….



Would you go for a RM5 haircut?  Or have you done it before?

By the way, I was told that the AIM MAX salon has moved to Gembira Parade in Island Glades as of August 2011.

SIGH….am itching to get some highlighting done now…hehe…and maybe a makeover. 🙂

    The Giddy Tigress says: Haha..but it takes longer for the students to do their job, cos they are still “learning”, ya see…
