Client’s Words

5 Star Reviews

“The best Japanese hair salon in the city! Yoshi is so nice. He listens and tries to do the best to get what you want. He also has great ideas to make your hair look better. The best of all, he developed hair products by himself and they are healthy without harmful chemicals. Price is very reasonable. Intimate environment. Great place! I’ve been a regular for a year now.”

“I’ve been going here since 2012 for Japanese hair straightening. I have naturally thick and curly hair (I’m Filipina) and I don’t have the patience nor the time (I’m a mom of 2) to style it. The process takes about 4 hours and is expensive ($420), but it is well worth it. I’ve gotten the treatment three times now and my hair stays straight for about a year.”
