My hair is done by a Japanese stylist in Kiwa Salon, located near FIT (Fashion Institute Technology) in NYC.
It’s a small cozy salon, but they offer super nice services – from thorough hair wash to free head and shoulder massage and complimentary drink. I was so impressed that they even prepare small cup to place my earrings! (BTW, Kiwa Salon is operating over 70 salons (plus some hair/nail schools) throughout Japan)
Not many American people know, but digital perm is pretty popular in Japan. It takes a few hours, but it makes beautiful big curl that lasts almost six months - no need of heat iron (just wash and blow dry).
Kiwa Salon has just started offering exquisite Japanese nail art (gel nail, of course!)
