After reading lots of great reviews on Komachi over at hardwarezone forums (yeah, salon reviews on an IT forum), I decided to give it a try. Guess I was in a crazy mood, as I usually don't get expensive haircuts. I also wanted to see what magic they could do to my hair for the high price they charge. Usually it's $65, but for first timers, there is a 20% discount which means I have to pay only $52. Still expensive!
My stylist was Mr. Maeda San. The service standard is excellent. The long hair wash and head massage was exactly what I needed to relax my mind. The shampoo used was some kind of milk shampoo, which smells absolutely heavenly! I was tempted to buy a bottle home. Fortunately, they are not pushy with their products, unlike many other salons.
As for the haircut, given my short hair length, it's needless to say that there is nothing magical he could do about it. It turns out to be rather normal, what I could get with my usual $18 haircut.
Conversing with the stylists can be tricky, as all of them are Japanese. Most of the time, I have difficulty making out anything other than "ne".
They are currently in the process of moving from Liat Towers to Liang Court. So this entry might need updating when they eventually move over, which I believe will be in June.
This was recommended to me by my friend as CNY is approaching and I need to tidy my hair up a lot.
You have to make an appointment with them, either through the phone or website.
The hairstylists are mostly native Japanese whom you can relate to if you've Japanese friends, been to Japan or understand Japanese culture.
They don't push sales of any affiliate hair products or anything like that which is a plus from the other who always like to earn extra from that.
Interestingly, this salon on the top floor of Liat Towers did not make use of the view out of their salon to their advantage.
The Creative Cut is $25, $35 or $65 depending on which stylist you choose.
You get a free cut on your 7th visit through their stamp card programme, and free colour on your 13th visit. You will also automatically become their member and get 20% off once you have completed 12 stamps.
