Hayato opening party in Roppongi
Yesterday, me and Laura went to Hayato’s opening party in Roppongi. Hayato is a hair salon specializing in foreign hair and I have been going there for more than 5 years. This month, they closed their Aoyama shop and moved to a new place in Roppongi which is bigger and more beautiful. I am happy they are doing well but I hope they won’t start charging more just because they got fancy and all… ^-^ The interior is amazing though – a grungy, vintage boudoir type of setting, reminded me of second life. This style was hugely popular when I was playing the game..
Hayato first opened in New York 20 years ago, then in Tokyo 4 years later and recently in London as well. I have heard their hair straightening service is very popular abroad. All the stylists are Japanese but they speak English and use foreign colors and hair products. It is very essential if you are a blonde girl living in Asia. I never looked for another salon after discovering them.
The catering and music band were great too. A New York jazz singer Miwa Watanabe came to perform just for the occasion.
This is my stylist Taichi. He knows how to color and cut fine hair like mine. I am meeting him next week for a fresh highlight. ^-^
Oh and the new salon has beautiful new chairs that are so soft and comfortable. They have a private room with a shower as well. Could be great for moms with kids although they will probably use it for facials and massages.
Not to sound like someone who is paid to say it but they do have 30% off discount now for all the first-timers so if you are living in Tokyo and looking for a professional who knows how to handle foreign hair (without cutting the hell out of it like they do in Japanese salons), give it a try or just pop in for a consultation. It’s free. ^-^
