I provide a “personal cut” which is tailored to all different shapes of heads and facial contours. Also, I apply special cut skills utilizing one’s hair type to the full potential that allows you to maintain your favourite hairstyle at home even after a few months from your hair cut. If you are distressed by damaged hair or hair loss, I recommend you to try our 100% Amino Treatment. You will enjoy smooth touch and shiny hair for a month. If you are troubled by hair loss or dry scalp, I suggest you to try our Head Spa (a.k.a Scalp Massage) for increased blood circulation to the hair follicles, condition scalp by removing excess skin oil and dirt. Please contact me if you have any concerns about your hair.
