i'll be heading out to tokyo soon this thursday for a week.

earlier i posted a thread about san francisco's hair salons, but i never got around to them and my hair's awfully getting long. i figured that it'll be an once-a-lifetime to get an unique haircut from a trendy salon.

hope to get your words by this thursday.

thanks in advance!

Dresshair in Shinjuku. 4th floor of Sumitomo building just next to the Alda building.

Ask for Hirayama-san he's my stylist:

Cut/shampoo/blow for 1,800 yen & cut/color/shampoo/blow for under 4,000 yen

If you want a truly crazy all the bells and whistles salon try Taya in Harajuku. The salon looks like a space shuttle with neon lights and floor to ceiling mirrors.

Also probably a perverse lack of self-confidence that causes me to overcompensate by exceling in other aspects of my life and boasting about sexual/monetary exploits (or lack thereof) on a fashion board viewed by thousands of anonymous users to make me feel better.

Isn't Japan a no-tipping country? But then again I've never been there, although I do remember reading it somewhere. I think...

i don't know if you already went, but i get my haircut at raiz in minami-aoyama. if coming from omotesando street turn right after prada, then make a left after the 1st outside cafe. you'll see okazaki modelling agency and above it is raiz.
kimura, the prez does alot of european seminars, hair and make for celebs, and recently did the new york collection for neil barret. very very good.
pretty big boutique, smoking section, and free massage.

came back from shima harajuku today
the best hair cut ive ever gotten
well, i went for a hair cut + coloring. i paid about 11000 yen w/ student discount.
the dude who cut my hair (kusama-san) was amazing. he wears bbc & bape head-to-toe but his fit was great. when i say head-to-toe, im talking about his belt, keychain, socks, and necklace all being BAPE.

the assistants are courteous and fun. the chicks are uber-hot.
the stylists got really good style. i guess that's part of their job to look dope.
rick owens sneakers, dior cape, margiela shirt.. that kind of steez

I second shima. I think it's my only haircut in my life I've liked.


But, as for english it depends on the person but as a whole I'd say don't be able to expect to get by using english. Either know specifically what you want and have a friend translate it for you so you can more or less hand it to the staff, or have a picture ready.

I went to shima right before I left. I didn't get my hair colored tho, just cut. I liked it, better than anything I got in America.

I might change it up and go to dresshair or raiz next time I'm there.

obviously the customers who bring in the most profit for all salons are females as opposed to male customers. that is why they market the website to females. you can keep going to shima and doing that kindergarden shit, that's cool, but when you get older you'll realize that for biz/connections/respect that only "trendies" and people not in the biz-world-know go to places as shima and such.
afloat gives great haircuts, hair-make, etc and you've got more biz encounter opportunities frequenting a salon of their status. i met one of the head stylists and he did a really good job and his list of high profile clientle would baffle your mind. if that place is good enought for so and so, it should be good enough for you...if you get what i'm saying or care. it may not matter too you, but the owner's status far surpasses that of other prominent stylists...you wouldn't even believe it.
anyway i figured somebody would comment on their theme/moto...i'm sure you weren't that serious or really don't care. i def recommend that you give alfoat a chance!
