I really love shopping in Chamelon because you can virtually find whatever you want inside. Scarves, makeup, nail polish, all kinds of accessories - name it and they have it. The employees are also polite and would pass you a basket if they find that you're struggling with the many things you're going to purchase. But sometimes I do wish they'd not follow me that often; it gets a little intimidating because I prefer browsing through my stuff alone, not with a stranger following me around!
I especially love their series of rings because they're so cheap! Starting from $2.90 for a ring, who wouldn't want to buy it? Furthermore, the rings are not just simple ones with no elaborate designs; they're really beautiful rings studded with jewels (obviously fake, but it looks real anyway) and other pretty decorations. The store will change its collection of rings once in a while and I often find myself leaving the shop with more than 5 rings to add into my mountain of accessories at home.
All the accessories you need is here!
Be prepared to be stunned by the plethora of accessories as you step foot into the store.
They have all that a girl would need, or want, rather - earrings, rings, necklace, rubber bands, head bands; you name it, they have it.
I have always patronized the shop to purchase earrings and often, I find myself caught in a daze and the sheer number of pairs of earrings they have there. I would then spent a long time meticulously taking my pick over which earrings I want because all were so appealing and the best part is, it is pretty affordable even to teenagers like me!
The necklaces there too are attractive and trendy; the different styles of the accessories in the shop caters to all age groups: It doesn't matter if you're a young child, or teenager like me, or even an mature lady - Chameleon would be able to satisfy the innate feminine desire to look beautiful.
Never really fancied Chamelon, even when young
Perhaps it has something to do with my gender but I never really fancied going to Chamelon, even when I'm young and my mother would bring me there, literally forcing me to wait for her, while she do her shopping for her accessories.
I disliked the strong bright lighting within the shop, which I presume was there to allow the bling bling accessories to sparkle more. To me, the bright lighting is just a pain to the eye.
Many at times I would just wonder off alone while my mother was picking on her accessories (no idea why she needed so many since you can only put on so much at any one time). The sales attendant would look at me in such a peculiar way, as though I might be up to some mischief. Giving them the benefit of doubt, it may just being me thinking too much though.
Now that I've grown, it's lucky that my gf doesn't likes to shop at Chamelon or else I would be stuck in this extensively sparkled shop again.
Wide Variety but slightly Expensive
Chamelon is one of the bigger accessory shops that you can find in Singapore. It has a really wide range of accessories from hair products like the usual hairclips and hair ties to even wigs. There are also other accessories such as necklaces, bangles and even tiaras.
From far you can spot Chamelon because the shop has a silvery glow to it and they often display their sparkling crystal products along the rows near the entrance. If you like sparkling things, you will certainly be drawn to enter.
However, the sparkles do come with a price. Many of the products in Chamelon do not sell cheaply, as I suppose the crystals they use may be real. As for simpler accessories, I think neighbourhood shops would compare reasonably because the quality of these accessories from Chamelon are not that exceptional. They do have a wider range of designs and colours compared to regular neighbourhood shops so I would recommend this place if you are looking more for unique designs.
The shop is spacious and the staff do not pressure you by following you around inside the shop so overall the shopping experience is a pleasant one even if you are just there for window shopping.
Stale and old..
I used to shop at Chamelon for hair accessories, that was about 3 years ago. Recently I happened to walk in while strolling around at Jurong Point, and I found that the collection hasn't changed one bit.
The pretty shiny stuff that I saw 3 years ago was still there. All of them. I was surprised at that. I thought they would evolve over time as well, but they didn't. Perhaps their niche in the market is teenage girls and the like, but even then, different trends are catching up now.
I used to consider Chamelon as one of the up-and-comers who could make it big, but looking at them 3 years on, I guess i was wrong. There's still hope, though, as it's not too late to update their stock variety.
On contrary to my review on Aries, I feel that this store is much superior than Chamelon. I’m sorry, I have to make a comparison as both chains sell similar items.
Chamelon sells much elegant and classier items and accessories as compared to Aries. They feature jewellery studded with (fake) diamonds, which when worn, can really beautify and give a woman elegance.
I also prefer their earrings and studs as they are of better quality. Girls going for a wedding or prom can come here to make their purchases, they are sure to find something that suits them and their outfits.
Too bling already
You can easily locate Chamelon as the shop is super 'bling bling' such that you can have an eyesore after going one round in the shop. I don't really like Chamelon because personally I'm not a person that love over excessive diamonds on my hair accessories. Usually I would only get some plain black rubberbands from there for school. Other than that, there's really nothing much I can get out from there.
Furthermore, I find their accessories a little too out dated. Their accessories seems to be more suitable for the middle aged women. I hardly find any teenager girls in that store.
This is the Aries but for the cash-overwhelmed
I used to really like Chamelon.
The colors, the bright lights, the wide variey -- it is my mini hair paradise. But that was 2 years back. I went to Chamelon 3 weeks back to get a comb and I was not surprised to see that the place has not changed a bit.
Their choice of accessories to bring in never changed. When the bohemian trend came, they didn't stock up on beaded accessories nor braided tails, they stuck to their little tiaras and basic hairbands. I applaud them for their consistency but a change would be nice.
Chamelon has become my regular to-go place ever since I started clubbing at Zouk. I'll always mess up my hair by accident during dinner and will rush to this place to get a cheap comb. But besides that purchase, there's nothing here I'd purchase again.
I think Chamelon will eventually fade away.
Only good for basics.
When I was younger, Chamelon used to be my go-to store for all my accessories, hair and others. Chamelon stocks a wide range of things, from the basic hair bands and clips to detachable bra straps.
Everything here is really overpriced considering the quality of the items. A hair clip can go up to $5 even though it looks cheap looking and feels very flimsy. Chamelon also stocks cheap makeup from unknown brands. I would not recommend buying makeup from Chamelon as the makeup will probably damage your skin. The designs of the hair clips look like they're meant more for middle-aged aunties than for teenagers. The accessories look very gaudy, definitely not something I would ever buy, let alone wear.
Nowadays, the only times I will ever step into Chamelon is for the basic hairbands, hair ties and bobby pins. Although still unreasonably priced ($2.90 for a flimsy plastic hairband), their wide range of basics gives them a little bit of points.
There is a wide range of accessories sold here that will suit all occasions - be it a party, casual outing or a formal event. Prices range from about $5 - $15 for bracelets and higher for necklaces. However, you can find these same accessories for a cheaper price at Bugis Street stalls or Far East Plaza.
Also, the quality is not very good. Alot of the accessories are made out of plastic which can look cheap when worn. The silver/gold items leave blue/black stains on your skin after wearing them for awhile.The designs are not fashion forward either.
I would only recommend you to buy the hair accessories here.
