Top Stylist

She moved her base of operations to England after working for more than a decade as a beautician in Japan. Using her knowledge of haircuts that fit each bone structure and personal coloring, she has the gift of creating style that matches the individual lifestyle of each and every customer. In London, she fully utilized the knowledge she had learned up to that point and understanding the differences in hair quality and bone structure between Asians and Europeans, she was active in both photography, and inside and outside the salon.

Akira

Top Stylist

He is a genuine native speaker having spent his childhood in England. After working at a salon in Tokyo for 10 years, he moved to the main SHINKA branch in Sydney and returned to Japan after honing, for two years, the skills required to provide global support. Combined with the highly reproducible "bob" style, he is stylishly drawing from a wide range of styles flavored with trends popular overseas. It is worth trying these hair styles born out of very un-Japanese looks and a superior sense.

Having danced from a young age, she is definitely the nimblest member of SHINKA. Her ingenuous character belies her bewitching atmosphere, and she is driven by a desire to improve as well as a sense of curiosity.

Many customers claim to feel "healed", and, requested for shampoos and head spas by both men and women, she is a "SHINKA lifer" popular staff member.

Every day, he is pursuing the creation of a space that can provide, in addition to the usual relaxing shampoo and head spa, more thoughtful attention and comfort. He makes you keenly feel the ambition he has hidden inside and his desire to more fully utilize his artistic temperament. One of his gifts is the natural smile that exudes from him during conversation.

Ai

Assistant

She returned to Japan after moving her life base to America in her teens and gaining proficiency in languages and the many areas of the hospitality field.

She is studying hard every day, learning Japanese technology from the basics, and aiming to become a beautician who is active internationally. Using her linguistic ability to instantly create an atmosphere that causes customers from a wide range of countries to feel relaxed, she is an important resource underlying the values of SHINKA as a global salon.
