Daisuke Salon De Coiffure

Not only is the salon headed by Japanese owner Daisuke Suzuki, you can also get the award-winning Yakuyou treatment range (perfect for those who are suffering from hair loss) there thanks to its collaboration with Japanese haircare brand, Menard!
It’s not that we’re promoting Daisuke-san, but it turns out he helped start this salon up by training their stylists himself, and is affiliated with them. Try out their ‘creep perm’; it’s apparently the newest perm technique in Japan now!
