Forever JC Yours Hair Couture – Look Who’s Back in Business

Remember the “Most Accomplished Hairdresser (and Photoshop Expert) in Singapore”, Jonal Chong?

He inspired a whole series of photoshopped meme pictures of him being “seen” with various celebrities.

It all started with one photoshopped picture of him with international star, Nicole Kidman, and his boastful claim to be Nicole’s exclusive stylist, among other international celebrities:

Jonal Chong and Nicole Kidman?

After he was exposed with being a fraud, his salon on Orchard Central closed down shortly.

It has been more than a year since.

Jonal Chong is now back with his newest salon to be launched in 2014 – Forever JC Yours Hair Couture:

Jonal Chong is back!
Jonal Chong is back!

To be honest, I think everybody should be given a second chance.

Jonal wrote a long Chinese poem on his Facebook page on his passion for hairdressing:

我在美髮界半個人生
十五歲那時候的我
便一刀一刀開始學習剪頭髮
我一條一條的剪
我一日一日的進修
當時完全不知道
原來我的人生註定就是這樣
我的遊樂場所就是我的髮廊
我的玩具就是我那把小小的剪刀
我的日子就是那一絲絲的頭髮和我的那把小小的剪刀
風風雨雨
經過的歲月
經過的風浪
讓我覺得生活上的這把小小的剪刀
真的給我很多支持
我有時心裡不敢抱怨
因為我深愛著
我那一把小小的剪刀
我在美髮界搖搖晃晃我的人生
不管任何人的中傷
我還是堅持的堅強
我在髮廊中成長
我在髮廊中告別我的爸媽
我在美髮界戀愛
我在美髮界失去我的青春
今天的我
還是跟十五歲一樣
給喜歡我的人服務
我就是那把我一生給了美髮界的 sc chong

Looking through his Facebook pictures, he do seems to have some real pictures styling local and regional celebrities. I wish him all the best in his new business venture and I hope he would not resort to lying about his credential any more.

  1. Agreed that jonal is a professional and he does deserve another come back. Thru his experiences and expertise, I am sure in no time he will be successful. Although his past scandal that tarnish his reputation, we as client do not agreed what paper wrote abt him. He is definitely a warm hearted and honest boss. May he be successful as before in OC.

  2. Hi
    A responsible & friendly service I ever had. After all the negative news, I was worried. But Jonal had proven that I was wrong- I received his message on his outlet at Farrer Rd! & to be able to continue with my previous package! I signed a new package as well. No doubt with his excellent skill !

  3. I had been visiting Jonal Chong Salon since shifted to Queens Road till now at Orchard Plaza . So far my husband n myself are very satisfied with their services .jonal chong is good in what he is doing .he is very good hairstylist and have good
    Character

  4. Very good hair cut. Once u have been here to cut your hair ,you won”t want to go to other places.The trust is already here .

  5. I have been Jonal’s customer for over 8 yesrs since his salon opened at Center Point. His layered cut skills on my long hair is highly commendable. I believe with his competency, he will definitely re-establish a name for himself in the hair dressing scene in Singapore.

  6. I have retake up a package with Jonal as his service is good and particularly he honors my earlier package which I had first signed. The immediate he restarted his business he emailed to inform me on the new shop location. I will continue to support him and wish you sucess

  7. When I come in to this salon Jonal have given me the services that I need . He is friendly and kind . I love his hair cut and the prem he give me . After I have saw all his new in the pass and I realise the new is so unfair to him.he is good in his work because I love his work I sign on package with him . I will continue support him.

    1. are u sure he provides good service. that ass is plain rude and self centered with the skills of an ant. are u Jonal himself? all the good reviews were written in english so frightfully broken & so hard to comprehend EXACTLY just like JC.

  8. Very disappointing service. Bought a deal from ensogo for a perm and walked away with hair that looks everything but curly. It even flattens my old curls. Shop is very small with JC and another staff. I was the only customer there but he let his poor staff do everything while he was absorbed in playing on his ipad. Prior to the appointment I did ask if the perm was digital perm and he said yes. However, it was totally not digital perm at all. The process simply involves applying chemicals to my hair twice and then washed off. A total waste of money! In conclusion, buy the deal at your own risk!

  9. I paid exorbitant fees & now sport a cut that resembles a mushroom. My hair is uneven and badly “chopped”. JC has POOR SKILLS in giving haircuts and he talks so damn blardy much it gave me a MASSIVE HEADACHE . Guys, don’t ever consider stepping in unless you can endure JC’s incessant self praise, nagging & TOTAL HARD SELL. HE cannot understand the word “NO” .. and he don’t listen to what u want. I’m upset and am heading to another salon for damage control. i dont know how he is still in business. everytime im there i will shiver at how rude he is to his so-called VIP customers. its not funny JC. mutual respect is expected. I’m disgusted, angry and felt conned into paying an amount that was many times the listed price just because he claimed the alternative product is top of the range. i was shocked when that Top Of The Range turns out to be a commonly available shiseido and i found it on qoo10 at literally 1/10 of what he charged us. so much on integrity. And he left me waiting while he went smoking. such professionalism. tsk tsk tsk.
