How A Japanese Hair Salon Differs From Your Typical Hairdresser

Feeling like you’re not getting the treatment you deserve? You are more than worthy of receiving tender loving care for your tresses every time you sit in for an appointment, which is where a Japanese hair salon can execute.

Unlike your average stylist, a Japanese hair salon goes the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and relaxed from the start right until the very end of the session. Using all the latest technology, overly qualified stylists, and providing a wide range of services, they are able to cater to all types of heads, whether you have curly, kinky, wavy, or straight locks. With this extravagant list of benefits, you can see why more people are choosing a Japanese hair salon over your typical stylist.

If you need a little bit more persuading,we’re going to comb through all the ways a Japanese hair salon can make a positive change to your haircare in comparison to general stylists.

Advanced Technology

If you’re looking for the most up-to-the-minute and refreshing styles for your locks, a Japanese hair salon can make it all happen. At our parlour, we offer high-quality airwave and digital perming treatments to help you form soft, natural-looking, and smooth curls. Airwave as mentioned in the title uses air to manage moisture and heat in order to gently create the waves, which even works well on straight locks. Digital, on the other hand, uses heat to form long-lasting waves for days on end.

Did you know the modern straightener was revolutionized by Japanese hair salons? This device instantly and smoothly flattens your locks to give you silky and sleek straight tresses. It is perfect for those looking to maintain an unkempt mane or to see what it looks like straight if they normally have curls.

Spa Quality Service

As we’ve mentioned, Japanese hair salons do more than just snip, snip, snip! Usually, during the minutes to hours of your treatment, you spend most of the time getting a cut, wash, and blowdry. But in Japan, you get the full spa treatment otherwise known as, “Omotenashi”. The session starts off with being served a choice of beverage, hot or cold and even in some cases being served snacks. On top of this, you are also giving a head and shoulder massage treatment, making the session a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

Attentive & Customised Service

In most parlours, you typically show a picture or pick a particular style to the stylist and right away they begin cutting. While this might seem simple, it’s like shooting a dart board blinded. A gamble. Japanese hair salons offer a more tailored and accommodating service, focused on mapping out a style that considers all your requests and concerns.

Before beginning the session, the stylist will ask you many questions such as fringes, length, style, dislikes, and other specifics. This is to make sure you get the best cut possible that is just how you envisioned it while making sure it flatters you.

If you want a treatment that offers the whole package, our team at Planet Hair can guarantee you’ll have gorgeous tresses without the stresses.
