A private men's haircut salon place in Yokohama.
I'm an older guy that stopped going to haircuts for maybe a decade because I simply got tired of paying a premium for a dice roll cookie cutter haircut. I really let myself go with a clipper and scissors over the years. That just became my look.
I've always heard Asia haircuts were the bomb. I looked for a haircut place dedicated to men's. I read through this company's website and chose them for the following reason
* private booths for you to discuss 1:1 with the stylist
* claims to design based on head shape and hair type
* 16 years of experience
Haircuts run for around 7000 yen, but it was my first time and I treated myself with the full set at 14000. You can get it cheaper with stylists that are less experienced.
I chose Akima. He's the store owner and the man with 16 years of experience.
I have to admit the building was a bit scary looking with advertised Thai Massages on the outside.
Walked in and was invited in to a stylish room about 100sqft. Yes, it was very private and the worker focused on cutting my hair the whole time.
No talking with other employees
I got the whole hair cutting, scalp massage, treatment, styling.
Haircut, we discussed a bit and he went to work. Told me how he cut in a certain way because of my head shape.
Scalp massage. Akima did put a lot of power into the massage, but I just didn't feel much benefit from it. I would probably skip it next time.
Treatment, this was worth it. Wife told me hair looks like it's in better condition.
Styling. was given tips on how to style my hair and how to keep my scalp clean.
Overall, very comfortable experience.
