18 good hair salons in JB that you can check out for a pampering hair care day when Malaysia’s borders open

Many Singaporeans love crossing the border over to Johor Bahru (JB) because of all the delicious food, fun entertainment, luxurious beauty services at good hair salons that we can get at a fraction of the price of what we pay right here in Singapore.

We used to go there all the time, either by driving across the border with our families or taking a private coach. While we are able to travel to Malaysia via the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) that was established with Singapore back in November 2021, the designated flights are limited and very expensive.

Thankfully, Malaysia will finally be opening up its borders to the world on 1 April and we can once again head there for all of our beauty needs and food cravings without having to book expensive designated flights! Talk about savings, right?

If you’re thinking of heading down once the VTL is established to give your hair the pampering makeover you’ve been dying to get, here are 18 good hair salons in JB to check out!
