My first trip to the hairdresser was quite something! I never experienced such thing.

Hikaru works at VIP Hair in Motoazabu. He is from Okinawa but spent many years in San Francisco and therefore speaks very good English.

Making appointment over the phone is no problem since Yuko, the owner and Hikaru speak perfect English.

They have arranged the salon with individual cabins where a massive chair is set. you sit on that throne and off you go for a special journey. The haircut comes with head and shoulder massage (Jacqueline, something to consider at Espace Florilege). the chair reclines for the hair wash and Hikaru then brings a sink on wheels that he plugs behind.


All together, color, cut, massage etc.. this comes around 16000 Yens, it is not cheap but if I compare to cost of living in Brussels vs Tokyo and salaries, it is actually same price.
