Zass!! offers world’s first mobile hair salon


KUALA LUMPUR: Taking a bus will soon be a new experience, especially since it will have nothing to do with going from one place to another. This refers, more specifically, to a red, vintage-looking bus with the words “Zass!!” emblazoned on its sides. According to founder Fara La’jam, Zass!! is the first mobile hair salon in the world, and it will be zipping around town offering hair-styling services to Klang Valley residents.

“We are a mobile hair salon and we move from location to location on a daily basis,” said Fara during a soft launch of the service at Craven Cafe, Ampang, Sunday.

The next time you go for a haircut, don’t drive to the salon – just call Zass!!. A red bus will drive up to your doorstep complete with salon and barber Zass!! zips around town offering hair-styling services to Klang Valley folk. – AZHAR MAHFOF / The Star
Some locations identified for the bus include Universiti Malaya, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and Universiti Putra Malaysia hostels, housing estates and various office car parks.

The mobile unit willl, first and foremost, offer basic hairstyling service (dry-cut and blowing for four clients at any one time) at only RM8. The first batch of hairstylists on the bus are children of Felda settlers who had graduated from hair-styling schools and will be trained to manage business expansion. Fara aims to eventually employ the disabled and single mothers, too. In addition, RM1 from each haircut will be channelled to a student welfare fund for the various universities hosting the mobile unit.

For details on Zass!! and house- call services, call 012-2162 500 or visit

For all, the armchair and real CEO’s out there, is this business going to survive? Or is this another “hair” brained idea?

What do you think?

    The concept is different, whether it is going to survive? …The answer is business is still business….you have to treat it like any other business….quality service…will make this business stay.

    We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make, which over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee – Marian Wright Edelman
