Did YOU KNOW ??
In Japan, a national qualification for barbering is necessary.
We train at a specialized training facility every day for at least 2 years, after which we take up national exams to get a certificate.
Even after getting certified, we need to train hard and long for about 3 years, training in haircuts and shaving as much as possible, followed by training in customer service. Only then can we finally debut as a stylist.
As such, Japanese barbering skills are in high demand from customers globally.
Our shop has staff of over 10 years of experience and they strive to ensure that you leave the shop with a great cut and pure satisfaction with our service.
