Please tell us about the services offered at your salon.
In addition to all the hair services––from cuts to perms and color––we offer reflexology and facial massages. Our facial is special because our estheticians use a hand-massage technique developed in Japan. It effectively drains the toxins in the lymph and helps your skin get firm and rejuvenate.

And what is your own signature service?
I would say my specialty is the dry cut. This technique is good for creating a hairstyle based on each customer’s hair type, volume, and scalp shape. I actually call it a “dry and sculpture cut” because the work is just like carving a sculpture to me. I also try to create styles that customers can care for easily at home without involving a complicated blow-dry.

Is there anything you keep in mind as a hair stylist?
Our salon concept is relaxation and healing, so I like to create an environment in which customers can unwind, which allows them to express naturally what they want. In a sense, that’s the ideal environment for me to get clues for creating the best style for each customer.

Any new trends in hair care or hairstyles?
We have just introduced Plarmia, new hair care products developed by industry leader, Milbon. The set consists of shampoo, conditioner, and oil for deep cleansing, scalp care, and treatment. What’s great about these products is that they effectively coat the hair while permeating it with nutritious agents. These agents stay inside hair shafts longer, so the treatment lasts for about a month.
