Katrien and Bart came to our salon to have a hair cut.

Both of them had not been having a hair cut for ages, Katrien had a long fluffy bob style, wanted to get it clean and neat. Bart wanted to get it something short, but it was only a rough idea.



For katrien, Yoshiko suggested her to have straightening, so she would have more choice.

But, unfortunately, she did not have enough time to do it this time. Instead of that, Yoshiko would teach her to style it with straight iron, later.


For Bart, the point he feels it’s unmanageable was always the side and back, and, Yoshiko thought it’s good to use the length on top and front. So, he agreed to go for disconected top and under.




The first result is Katrien. After explaining how to work with straight iron simply, Yoshiko also told her it’s ok to straighten only front and side area. Because, her natural curl can be nice accent to shape it on back area. It  depends on her feelings of the day!








The result for Bart. As the consultation, it’s disconected style that kept longer on top and much shorter the under. But, only from the back crown area, length was conected to keep nice round shape. It was the idea of fixing up the haed shape.

Melissa had come to our salon with her friend, she was seeking for a straight hair.

She naturally had a nice wavy hair, which asian girls pays for it.

But, people always want what they don’t have.



In our salon, there are some type of straightening systems, each of them could give different result,  have a different texture, nuance.

After talking with yoshiko, she decided to have Japanese straghtening which could give her strong but beautiful straight.



This is the result! Japanese straghtening is a thermal straghtening system which can last forever unless the hair gets damages (Damage can bend the hair, especially ends part.).

Another advantage of the straight hair is the shine. the light tend to reflect easier on a plane surface than the uneven surface, of course.

Now she’s got a nice and shiny hair!!


Iryna had come to our salon to meet up her friend. But, she have not had a hair cut for ages.

So, she decided to try yoshiko. Actually, her friend has alredy been yoshiko’s regular customer.



She had particular style that she wanted. It’s long edgy A-line bob. Therefore, she wanted to keep the length on front, or rather, wanted to grow the length.

So, Yoshiko decided to keep the length on front as much as she can. With the shorter gradation on the back, from there, longer towards front with quite angled.



The finish result. It’s nice and beautiful silhouetted, no matter which angle it’s looked at.



Then, when it gets the length, she would get what she want! with this definite shape would last!


There are some techniques you might see them only in Japanese salon, such as the permanent straightening, or wave…

Especially, for those permanent shaped techniques are pretty common here.

This time, Sheena had come to us to get nice curly style.

As those pictures, Sheena had a long and soft straght hair. She wanted to have beautiful bouncy curls from middle to ends, just like the curl made with curling tongs.



This is the result! After the digital perm, the only thing we need to do to finish it was a “drying”.

It’s one of the advantege for digital parm. Do not have to dry with the brush, also, do not need irons, tongs, all we need is hands with dryer.

There is one thing we do for finishing that is dividing  hair into 2 sections from nape area, bring them to the front, then with your finger, twist them all together with the heat.

Then, it can keep beautiful curl whole of the day!

Some customer tell us  the  product as they’ve been used in their country or from a previous salon, such as the No. of color. Sometime it works to get the rough image of what they want. On the other hand, it dosen’t, because there are few but specific differences between  product brands.

Even in the salon, we’re looking at each brand’s “color chart”,  we will find some differences on shades and tones. And also, there is a difference between Japanese product and foreign product, even it’s same brand, just because it’s the different pigment in hair, and of course, it’s different market. In some point, they have to make a difference.

This was actually good tips from one customer, when we had been talking with her she told us the product she had been having.


She was having half head high light and hair cut.

Of course, Yoshiko explained all differences of products, but from the No. of the color she told her, Yoshiko could easily get the image what she wanted.




Now, she has got what she wanted. Cut about 2 inch off, layered all around, finished with straght iron. Then, this is the color. It’s pretty close to her natural color, this light brown makes her skin looks clear!
