Hi, anyone knows where Maeda is working now?
Or if you have anyone to strongly recommend? Budget is about $80, $100 tops if the stylist is really great
Thanks!

Edit: I noticed Jonathan from Kenaris seems to have favourable reviews... its $50?

i was with maeda before. honestly speaking, taking into consideration pricing/cut and quality of service. jonathan from kenaris doesnt lose out at all :) approx 40ish is his rate

anyone can advise Renati Matt Mud or Sebastian Craft Clay is better to create a matt, volume look? and which is better to wash off and friendly to hair?

Hair length is short and hair style is kinda like a mowhawk style.

Thanks~

Sebastian craft clay will work better if your hair is short. :) Both also very easy to wash off, I prefer the look with the sebastian clay.

try kiehls olive fruit oil shampoo. you can drop by to get the samples before purchasing a full size

Where do you get this shampoo? Would like to try it.

honestly, i do not know of any good stylist that charges approx 30 ish, i believe in paying for the experience they have. why not just up your budget a little and go for a slightly better stylist? at least youd have a peace of mind when you have your haircut done. since its your last haircut before NS (the next one might prolly be my last too, enlisting in nov) an additional 10 bucks isnt gonna hurt your pcket too much id say (;

While he was very knowledgable about the my hair and texture, the end product was not done satisfactory.

Replied back your PM already. Just in case the others on this thread who are curious abt Hisato's whereabouts since they have been reading about my reviews at Shunji Matsuo earlier, it's not that he's not working in Shunji Matsuo anymore, but he has to maintain and run a Shuji's new salon that just opened in Indonesia back in mid-2010. Since he has to jet back and forth to Indonesia on a frequent basis, it's quite hard to get hold of him for your hair appts unless u manage to be lucky.

I have since been relying on Nashiki-san (also located at Shunji Matsuo) for my cuts, or sometimes also visiting Monso Hair Design located at Gallery Hotel (Nanson Rd) to look for Soga-san, if I can't manage to catch Nashiki whenever I need a hair appt.

One word of advice though, I don't think Monso Hair Design is suitable for doing hair colouring/digital perm (especially if u are a girl and tend to be choosy over such services), their rates are actually considered alot more exp compared to Shunji, and their salon equipment IMO is not as well-equipped/enhanced as Shunji Matsuo, cos ever since Shunji Matsuo moved to Heeren from Wellington building back last yr, actually Shunji-san did invested in some new equipment upgrades for their salon, to improve the overall customer service experience there.

Just sharing what I know.
Cheers.

Do you have the habit of conditioning your hair? I don't really condition my hair on a frequent basis, because I need to leave some texture on my hair in order to style easily with wax, but according to my hairstylist recommendation it's still better to condition your hair maybe once or twice a week. (and of course use a good hair conditioning product also, not those 3-in-1 shampoo + conditioning type)

Hope this helps.
