An in-depth guide to hair design for long hair

There are many different hair designs for long hair.

You can tie your hair up, straighten it or perm it.

If you are tired of your current long hair, why not try a new hairstyle?

We would like to introduce a variety of hairstyles for those who want to try a new long hairstyle.

Long hair x Hair straightening

The best way to make your long hair look its best is to straighten it.
The surface of the hair will be tidied up and the shine and texture will be improved.

This is highly recommended for those who suffer from frizzy or dry hair.

If you have never had your hair straightener before, you will be very impressed.

Long hair x digital perm

A digital perm is a beauty service that creates large curls in the hair.
Digital perms are done in a similar process to hair straightening and last longer than regular perms.

A digital perm will add movement to your hair and give you a voluminous hairstyle.

It is also easy to style, just dry it and you will have curly hair that looks like it has been curled with an iron.

Long hair x layered cut

If you’re getting a little tired of your long hair, try adding layers around the face to create movement at the ends.

If you have long hair without layers, it will look heavy and not light.

If you have long hair with layers, it is easy to curl with iron and easy to style when tied up.

Long hair with layers can be styled in a variety of ways by adjusting the height of the layers.

Low layers create movement at the ends of the hair, and full layers give a lighter look to the hairstyle.

Long hair x highlights

By adding highlights to long hair, the streaky colour gives movement to the hair.

Depending on the brightness and thickness of the highlights, a variety of designs can be created.

Long hair with highlights looks more beautiful when curled with an iron, so it goes very well with curly hair.

Long hair x blonde hair

One of the best ways to change the image of long hair is to make it blonde.

Blonde hair can change the look of your hair and make your face look brighter.

The blonde hair makes your hair look lighter, so it goes well with both straight and curly hair.

Long hair×Brown hair colour

The combination of long hair and brown colour is common among Asians.

Asians usually dye their hair brown to make it look lighter, as their natural hair is black.

The brown colour is easy to match with the colour of your clothes and can be combined with highlights and perms.

Unlike bleached hair, this colour is less damaging to the hair and is easy for all types of hair to try.

How to care for your long hair

Daily hair care is very important in order to keep your long hair looking good.

Hair is damaged every day by various stimuli.

  • Damage from air conditioning
  • Damage from UV rays
  • Damage from friction
  • Damage caused by shampoo

To keep your long hair looking good, use a heat protection oil before going out to protect your hair from irritation.

Before shampooing, brush your hair carefully and use a mild shampoo such as an amino acid shampoo.

It is best to use a treatment with a repairing effect and to apply it when the cuticle is open.

Afterwards, rinse your hair with a little cold water to close the cuticles and make the treatment more effective.

Damage-less hair straightening in Mayfair, London.

Many people who live in London want to get a hair straightening.

But have you ever had a hair straightening that failed you?

  • Your hair got damaged.
  • It was too straight.
  • It doesn’t last long

Hair straightening is one of the most difficult techniques in beauty services.

All beauty salons offer this service, but there are very few that have a professional level of technical expertise.

What is hair straightening?

There are two types of straight perms: straightening and straight perms.

Straightening involves using an alkaline agent to soften the hair and then using a straightening iron to straighten it.

A straight perm uses an alkaline agent to soften the hair, and then it is simply straightened with a comb.

In both cases, hydrogen peroxide water is applied at the end to stay the hair straight.

What is the difference between a straight perm and a hair straightener?

The difference between the two is the ironing process.

Like straightening, the heat of the iron can be used to straighten any type of hair, but it can also be damaging.

If there is no ironing work like in straight perms, it is often used to remove perms, but there is also damage.

Which lasts longer, straightening hair or straight perms?

Straightened hair lasts longer.

Once the hair is straightened, it will stay straight permanently.

However, because it uses the heat of iron, it can easily damage your hair.

If you have curly, wavy, or frizzy hair, hair straightening will help you keep your hair beautifully straight for a long time.

Is there a hair straightening that is less damaging to the hair?

Hair straightening was generally a service that used alkali, but nowadays there are hair straighteners that use acidic agents that are less damaging to the hair.

The cause of hair damage from straightening is the heat of the iron and the softening effect of the alkaline agent on the hair.

Since hair is weakly acidic, using an acidic agent rather than an alkaline agent will cause much less damage to the hair.

The result is soft, natural, and straight hair.

In addition, the way the iron is heat-treated is also important.

To minimize the damage to the hair, you must straighten the hair gently without pulling it.

And while taking small sections, you have to be careful not to turn the heat of the iron too high.

How do I find a hairdresser who can be straightening my hair well?

The best way to find a hairdresser who can straighten your hair is to check SNS and Reviews on google.

A good hairdresser will have a lot of customers who come to him for hair straightening.

So there will be a lot of photos and reviews on social media and reviews of hair straighteners.

If there are only a few reviews and photos about hair straightening, you shouldn’t go there.

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.
