Sharing Her Thoughts
I’ve always enjoyed every single movement, process, and the results from doing hair. For instance, doing highlights is something I could literally do all day everyday, and never get tired of it. Haircutting is how my love for hairdressing began. While analyzing the head shape, hair growth pattern and texture, it’s enjoyable finding a haircut (and or color) that fits the clients personal style.
It’s important for me to carefully listen to the clients wants and needs, and to understand their vision.
When a client is happy after getting their hair done, it makes me just as happy and excited. It’s truly a great feeling to be able to give people something that is part of their identity or accessory, and they can wear feeling beautiful and confident at all times.
“I adore Yuki Annette and highly recommend her as a hair stylist for women and men! She exceeded my expectations in all aspects: skill, ability to listen to the client, applying relevant techniques, and helps you achieve what you want with your hair in between appointments by sharing her knowledge and suggestions. Not only will you fully believe she’s there for you, but ultimately, the quality is top notch!"
TERESA G. / SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST
“Annette is awesome! She has been doing my hair for about a year and a half now, and every time I am super happy with the result. She has a great vision, and knows what will work for my hair, and face shape, and she always has good advice when I ask her a question. I totally recommend her as a stylist!"
MARIANA R. / MUSIC EDUCATOR
“Yuki has been doing my hair for several years and has never disappointed. It’s hard to find someone in Tokyo who speaks fluent English and does great blonde coloring on fine/Caucasian hair. Yuki does both, is super versatile in skills/treatments, and helpful in researching and proposing styles for your hair type and preference. I can’t recommend her enough! Oh, and if you have fine hair like me, don’t miss the Keratin treatment to get you through the humidity. Wouldn’t have survived Tokyo summers without it."
