I believe that the best hair salon is a place where customers can relax, recharge and be pampered while their hair is carefully taken care by hair professionals. By selecting only great hairstylists, using only the best chemicals we know and giving each customer ample personal space, I hope to create this ideal experience for all of COVO’s customers.

Mizoguchi Manabu
Founder of COVO Hair Salon


The brilliant team behind the COVO flagship salon in Keong Saik Rd and a second salon in Katong have their third outlet in Boat Quay now!

True to COVO's style, this salon is bright, spacious, and has semi-private spaces, all of which are rare in Singapore salons these days.

Whether you're coming on your own to relax, with a group of friends for a fun day out, or with your kids and family, there is enough space for everyone. Plus, this is one of the most family-friendly Japanese salons in Singapore!

On top of their most relaxing ambience, every customer at COVO is attended to exclusively by an experienced Japanese stylist from start to finish. This means personalised service, a quicker hair service, and no waiting around or getting passed around to the next available hairstylist! It also means that your hairstylist is more accountable for the outcome of your hair, so the results here tend to be supremely satisfying.

We also appreciate that there is often a translator at the reception. Most Japanese stylists here can speak rather fluent English, but it always feels reassuring to know that you can ask for a translator if necessary.

We highly recommend COVO not only because of their ambience and service, but also because of their wide range of treatments carefully sourced and brought to Singapore by founder Mizoguchi!

Dissatisfied with the quality of some perm lotions, rebonding lotions and treatments, Mizoguchi researched deeply into various hair chemicals and worked closely with Japanese haircare companies to handpick only top-quality treatments to bring to Singapore.

The result? Treatment lotions that are more effective as they can be customised to each customer's hair condition. Of course, their carbonated spring water, carbonated spa foam and clarifying scalp steamer probably help as well!

Overall, a great hair salon to try if you haven't stepped into a Japanese hair salon!

P.S. They have just introduced a new Must-Try Treatment NOV and Eclasta. Ask the stylists more about them!
