|There are just too many hair salons in Tokyo, and so it’s quite natural we need a guide book to refer to. These websites are just like hairstyle catalogue as well as hair salon directory so that we can decide which cute kawaii hairstyle to try at which hair salon.|

When I choose my hair salon, I have some points to consider. I want it to be very small, say 2 or 3 customers only with relaxed and private atmosphere. I don’t like white wall, white floor, and white ceiling. This may sounds crazy but in fact there are somehow quite a few hair salons with interior like that; just almost all white with strong bright lighting. (This reflects white more!). Too strong white just makes me tired.
So I have been to a small hairdresser’s in my city for over 4-5 years so far until recently H1N1 swine flu, or Mexican flu infection was found in a highschool that is very close to it. Then I thought this is the time I may wanna change my salons. As usual, I looked for “CouponLand” my favorite free magazine, and found a good salon in Daikanyama, Tokyo.
|I went there on Monday where no other customers, just me and a hairdresser alone! It was completely something I desired. I had it all to myself with free aroma head massage which came along with the coupon!
In average, when we try to have haircut in Tokyo, it’s 5,000 – 6,500 yen (US$50 -65) and 10,000 – 12,000 yen (US$100 – 120) for cut & perm. If we want cut, perm and hair color, then the price will be 15,000 – 20,000 yen (US$150 – 200). There are so many options to be kawaii, but that keep costing us reasonable money on and on…
Anyway, you can use the referred links of cute kawaii hairstyles that are made in Japan and find out the good one you ask for your hairdresser! Hope this helps.
ps. I was told that my hair was too strong to be colored when I tried it at Vidal Sassoon hair salon in Santa Monica, California. I found a big difference when they shampooed my hair. In Japan, they cover our faces with towel or something so that water does not drop. But they didn’t, and so I had kinda strange angle to look up the hairdresser’s nostril and I had no idea where else my eyes can reach unless I closed my eyes…:p
Do you have such awkward and/or strange experience at your hairdresser’s?
