Woody Antique House
For two decades now, Woody Antique House has been one of the best places around to shop for wood furnishings and more. Its top team sources authentic Asian antiques and exclusive modern collections, plus it can customise nearly anything. It’s why we’ve always been proud to toot Woody Antique’s horn!

Visage The Salon
Singaporean Dominic Seow has run expat-friendly www.visage.com.sg at the same, scenic location overlooking Orchard Road for 30-plus years. (Fun fact: His business was one of the first to appear in the pages of The Finder, back when it was founded in 1993!) Why is the salon still so popular? London-trained Dominic is a master at taming the manes of expats. Call to book an appointment today. (402 Orchard Rd., Delfi Orchard, #02-11/14, 238876, 6733 0933)
How do we love thee? Let us count the ways! For starters, Cluny Court is one of the coolest malls in SG, in large part because of its lovely setting: in a heritage building, steps away from the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Its boutiques feature truly unique pieces – not the mass stuff you can find, well, everywhere. Plus, its various services – from hair and nail salons to dentists and tailors – are excellent. Hungry? Stop in to one of its fab F&B options or grocers. (see here for more)
Expat-friendly beauty salon Sweeny’s has been representing in Holland Village since 1978. Cuts, colour, colour correction, highlights, lowlights, rebonding – the list of services goes on and on. But, that’s what to expect when the business founder and head stylist, Desmond Lim, has more than 40 years’ experience! (211 Holland Ave., Holland Road Shopping Centre, #03-28 , 278967, 6468 1795)
