Experienced Japanese hairdresser in London

There are many Japanese hairdressers working in London.
Japanese hairdressers are very popular and work with a lot of foreign clients.

Why are Japanese hairdressers so popular?


One of the reasons why Japanese hairdressers are so popular is because of their attentive service and skills.

Japanese hairdressers study in Japan for two years at a beauty school.
After graduating, they work as assistants in beauty salons for two to five years and practice a lot.

Therefore, when they debut as a stylist, they are already a high-level hairdresser.

Even after they become a stylist, they practice after work and take part in various workshops to improve their skills.

Characteristics of Japanese hairdressers

 

Japanese hairdressers are very kind and humble.

They will greet you and always try to keep a smile on their face.

They will offer you drinks and magazines to make you feel at home.

The Japanese are very dexterous and good at detailed work such as haircuts, colours, and perms.

They also have a lot of knowledge about hair and know many ways to make sure your hair doesn’t get damaged.

Japanese hairdressers are needed in every country in the world and are very popular with foreign customers.

How good is the English of a Japanese hairdresser working in London?

The English level of Japanese hairdressers working in London varies.

Some stylists who have worked in London for a long time speak fluent English, while others who have just arrived in the UK speak only a few words.

If you want a hairdresser who speaks English well, make sure you call or email them to check.

A hairdresser who speaks only a few words can still be very skilled.

Not many Japanese hairdressers speak English fluently, but many of them are able to communicate with body language and gestures.

What techniques are Japanese hairdressers good at?

Japanese hairdressers have a high level of skill in haircutting.
In addition to that, they also have good skills and knowledge of perm services, which are very popular in Japan.

Also, blonde highlight colour such as balayage is a very popular hair service in Japan.

The most popular services for Japanese hairdressers are shampoo and head spa.
Other hairdressers do not offer shampoo and head massage like we do.

Relaxation is also an important part of our hair service.

Hair straightening review

We have received many positive reviews from our customers.

We are very happy to receive such praise.

In order to provide a better service, we are working hard every day to study the latest products and knowledge, and to improve our techniques.

Excellent in-depth free consultation. Very knowledgeable about Japanese hair straightening

 

I had a Japanese Straightening treatment and it was super!
Thank you Hiroki !

 

Excellent Japanese hairdressers maintaining high standards for the 10+ years I’ve been a customer. This is a high standard Japanese hair salon that offers the usual cuts, colouring, and some nail work. Can’t comment on the colouring or nail work as I’ve never needed this. I have had a cut and wash with a variety of different stylists over the years. I’ve never been disappointed, the staff are friendly and offer excellent service to be expected of a Japanese salon. Something worth noting is that this is one of the few Japanese salons that are open on Sundays. Highly recommended.

 

Excellent service and quality of professional staff. Even their scissors are imported from Japan and having lived in London most of my life, going to Tony & Guy and every soho stylist you can imagine, this team makes the competition look like amateurs. I also hear that their nails are done by an award winner. If you’re English (like me) don’t be shy, go in because they are all very nice.

 

They totally understand what I ask for, surprisingly this very simple ask is extremely difficult to get from other places, that’s why I kept going despite the relatively higher rate.

Bob hair becomes flat easily.

That’s why perming is one of the best ways to have texture and a new look.

If you get tired been straight-looking lose perm is good for you.

Loose perm × Medium hair

If you have medium hair and considering to cut your hair short or grow it out why don’t you try a loose perm?

Medium hair is difficult to maintain and ends always flipping away right?

Then if you get a loose perm you can put cream or oil only.

If you like to have some texture loose perm is the best way.

Loose perm × Longhair

A lot of people who have long hair get a perm.

Especially loose perm is good for the first time.

Even if you tie up your hair it still ends part is curly so looks nice.

Loose perm damaged hair?

Sure all chemical processes damage hair.

But if you work with a hairdresser who has a lot of experience with perm your hair will be still healthy.

Perming service is very difficult and if you work with a less experienced hairdresser your hair will get super damage.

If you really nice curl why don’t you try an experienced hair salon or hairdresser?

Please don’t try to go cheap hair salon in this case.

How to maintain a loose perm?

Most importantly right after the perm, you don’t have to comb through your hair straight too much.

Keep your hair curl as much as possible and use your fingers instead of comb or brush.

After the perm hair gets dry so you need to take care of hair with hair oil or treatment.

For styling, it’s good for using oil, cream, or moose.

Can I shampoo right after a loose perm?

Right after the perm, your curl does not lock properly.

Please try not to wash your hair for at least 24 to 48 hours.

And when you shampooing please use an acid shampoo like a mild one.

Most shampoo at drag store is too strong for permed hair so it takes out curl so quickly.

Men/Male also better to get a loose perm

If you are men/male and get boring with straight short hair loose perm is the best option to change your looking.

Don’t worry even if you have short to long lengths you can find a suitable design.

ロンドンで縮毛矯正するならBaroque Hair and Nails

ロンドンに住んでいると、水の影響で髪の毛がパサパサになったり髪の毛が日本にいた時より痛んだような気がしませんか?

また髪質が前と違ってクセが出始めたり、髪の毛の表面がザラザラするなんて事も。

そんな時に縮毛矯正やストレートパーマをしたいと思う方も多いと思います。

Baroque hair and nailsでは、トリートメント成分をたっぷりと含んだお薬で、髪の毛への負担を最小限に抑えながら髪質を改善しています。

ロンドンの縮毛矯正の値段はどれぐらい?

髪質改善トリートメント/Straightening

ロンドンでは日本より物価が高く、美容院でのプライスも少し高めに設定されています。

Baroque hair and nailsでは、 £280〜 髪質や長さ、スタイリストによってお値段を変割ります。

上記の値段にはヘアカットとシャンプー料金が全て含まれています

もし正確なお値段を知りたい方は、メールやウォークインによるコンサルテーションも行なっておりますのでお気軽にご連絡ください。

縮毛矯正って髪の毛を痛めますか?

縮毛矯正はアルカリ剤と呼ばれる髪の毛を膨潤させて柔らかくするプロセスがあります。

その作用中は髪の毛への負担がかかるので、ダメージしてしまいます。

ですが、縮毛矯正の場合はそのあとに行うアイロンによる髪質改善の効果によって仕上がりは艶のあるサラサラとした綺麗な美髪になるので痛んでいるように見えないんです。

Baroque hair and nailsでは、縮毛矯正で使用する薬剤や、薬を塗布する前の髪の毛にたっぷりの栄養成分を含ませながら施術を行います。

なのでアルカリによる刺激なども最小限に抑えながらみずみずしい仕上がりに。

縮毛矯正はどれぐらいの頻度で行えばいいですか?

髪質改善トリートメント/Straightening

一般的には6ヶ月に1度のペースで行うと髪の毛にとって良いと思います。

もちろん、お客様の髪の毛のダメージ状態や、クセの強さ、場所によっても頻度が変わってきます。

クセがとても強くて頻繁に縮毛矯正をしたい方なら早くても3ヶ月ぐらいのペースなら大丈夫かと思います。

また、縮毛矯正の場合は根元の新生毛の部分のみストレートにしてあげると髪の毛への負担が最小限に抑えることができます。

一度施術した中間から毛先の部分に縮毛矯正を何度も薬剤をつけてしまうと髪の毛の強度がどんどん落ちてきてしまいます。

1度縮毛矯正をした部分は半永久的にストレートのママなので、できる限りダメージになるような行為を控えつつ綺麗な状態に保つようにすることをオススメします。

縮毛矯正した髪の毛は元の状態に戻せますか?

1度縮毛矯正にした髪の毛は元どおりの髪質には戻すことはできません。

薬とアイロンの熱により髪質の形状が変化しているためです。

元どおりの髪質に戻すためには、縮毛矯正した部分を切らないと元どおりにはならないので注意しましょう。

ただし、縮毛矯正した髪の毛の毛先など、カールっぽくしたい人もいるかと思います。

そんな方にはデジタルパーマがオススメです。

縮毛矯正した髪の毛でもパーマをかけることができ、ストレートに飽きてしまってもイメージチェンジすることができるので人気です。

縮毛矯正とケラチントリートメントはどっちがオススメ?

髪質改善トリートメント/Straightening

縮毛矯正とケラチントリートメントの仕上がりは大きく異なります。

仕上がりの綺麗さやモチなどは縮毛矯正が圧倒的に良いです。

ですがケラチントリートメントの場合は髪の毛への負担がほぼ無いというのが利点ですね。

今では様々なメニューが開発されていますが、大事なのは自分の髪質に合うサービスを見つけることですね。

流行しているから、周りがやっているからではなく、自分自身の髪質や仕上がりの目的に合うかどうかを考えてから決めましょう。

前髪だけの縮毛矯正などもできますか?

もちろん可能です。

人それぞれ髪の毛のクセやきになる部分がありますよね。

Baroque hair and nails でも、前髪縮毛矯正や根元だけ縮毛矯正などでご来店するお客様もいらしています。

前髪、顔まわりなど毎日目にする部分はどうしてもうねっていたりクセが出てしまうと気になりますよね。

上記の写真のように、前髪の根元からウネる強いクセであっても艶のある自然な前髪へと仕上げることができます。

顔まわりの髪の毛は細くて傷みやすいので、しっかりと髪の毛をケアしながら施術を行なっています。

縮毛矯正はどれぐらい長持ちしますか?

縮毛矯正は一般的に1度ストレートにした部分は半永久的にストレートヘアの状態をキープしてくれます。

もちろん、髪質やお手入れなどの仕方によって持続力も大きく変わってきますね。

定期的に縮毛矯正をする方は、6ヶ月おきに根元の新生毛がウネウネしてきたりすると縮毛矯正をされる方がとても多いです。

もちろん、根元のクセがそこまで強く無い人であれば根元の新生毛が新しく生えてきてもあまり気にならずに我慢できるかと思います。

ロンドンで縮毛矯正が上手な美容室

Baroque hair and nails では、髪の毛への負担を最小限に抑えるためにオリジナルの薬剤を開発しお客様に提供しております。

ダメージレスになるようにたっぷりの栄養分を髪の毛に染み込ませながら施術を行っているので仕上がりもナチュラルで触った感触もしっかりとしています。

縮毛矯正で重要なのは1液による軟化のプロセスとアイロンの熱による形状変化がとても大切です。

Baroque hair and nails では、1液のなんかプロセスに使用する薬剤をこだわり、その前後にたっぷりの栄養分を髪の毛へ含ませながら髪の毛を柔らかくしていくので髪の毛への負担を最小限に抑えています。

経験豊富なスタイリストによるアイロン作業によって髪の毛への熱処理を最小限かつ最短に仕上げある事で、柔らかくしっとりとしたストレートヘアを提供しております。

ロンドンにお住まいで、髪質が気になり始めたらぜひ一度Baroque hair and nailsへお越し頂ければと思います。
