Store Manager / 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. Upon returning to Japan, she joined SHINKA with the aim of more fully utilizing the skills she had honed, as well as her language ability. Her steady, high levels of technical ability as well as her ability to propose interesting ideas has also won her many fans among embassy staff.
It was her double-edged experience of working as both a stylist and a colorist (color specialist) that developed these multiple abilities. Currently, in her position as manager of the Azabu-juban branch, she is making full use of both Japanese and English to manage the salon. The fact that she is gaining popularity among a wide range of people, both men and women of all nationalities, is testament to the fact that she can capture the image of what the customer wants to be and provide advice on suitable technology that can be reproduced at home and make proposals for the next opportunity. Valuing each and every human encounter, she is currently developing the skill and stamina required to be a "beautician for life".
After spending 3 years at the main branch in Sydney as a Top Stylist, our almighty stylist Hitomi has joined the Roppongi team. Her politeness and friendliness is loved by everyone, creating a relaxing atmosphere for all. She shows confidence in creating highlights for both Western and Asian backgrounds but also has the technique to create a style that 'suits the individual'.
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. It is not going too far to say that it is because her broad-minded sensitivity was able to go out and become exposed to the world at an early stage. 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.
