6) Michael & Guys Hair Salons & Academy
Michael & Guys was set up in 1989 by siblings Michael and Callie Goh, with a salon in Sungei Wang Plaza.

In addition to providing great service to customers, they also intend to educate their students to be hairstyling professionals through their Academy.
Number76 may be the new kid on the block compared to many others on this list, but that doesn’t make this brand any less impressive. Their origins aren’t local, in fact the salon was founded in Tokyo in 2001 by Daisuke Hamaguchi. With their credo of being polite, kind and honest, you can be sure to be served well at their salons. Find them at Mid Valley, Bangsar, Publika and Starhill Gallery.
8) Toni & Guy Malaysia
The Mascolo brothers founded Toni & Guy in London over 50 years ago, and today it’s become an international brand, with salons, products and even academies.

You can book an appointment at their salons online.
