Naoki Yoshihara by Ash in Orchard ( ナオキ ヨシハラ バイ アッシュ )!

ナオキ ヨシハラに戻りました! Yap, after a lapse of more than a year, I am finally back at the Japanese hair salon, Naoki Yoshihara by Ash ( ナオキ ヨシハラ バイ アッシュ )!

A little about the salon, Naoki Yoshihara by Ash is the largest hair salon chain in Japan with 260 outlets to date! Opened on July 2013 at Liang Court in Singapore with the intention of providing Japanese quality service with affordable price here, Naoki Yoshihara has recently opened another outlet in International Building, taking over Komachi on the second floor. Boy, I love the convenient location since I can always pop by after my shopping and spa in Orchard; plus, my Aesthetics sponsor is also in the same area!

My previous hair sponsor took really great care of my hair and the staff there are simply amazing. My contract with them has just ended, and I am really excited to have Naoki Yoshihara coming onboard as my next sponsor! Sorry to keep you waiting for so long, and sincerely appreciate your patience, Iwai-san!

Razzle-dazzle chandelier that hangs from the ceiling, clean and sleek look with tall mirrors standing, the simple interior of the salon is somewhat different from their Liang Court outlet.

Naoki has kindly assigned their Creative Director Masami Kuramochi-san, to take care of my hair. Since he will only be transferred from their other branch to Orchard in May, Yuki-san, a Director with 7 years experience, greeted me on my first visit here.

naoki yoshihara schwarzkopf hair colouring review
It is time again to colour my hair as my roots are already showing. I was thinking of Ombre, which has ruled the hair trend these couple of years, but I don't know the Japanese word for it. In the end, I settled for 3 colours - a base, plus a low and highlight.

Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Dye was use. As I have few strands of grey hair, I am pleased to learn that Igora Royal covers up to 100% white hair, delivers ultimate colour retention and represents intense colour vibrancy. Above all, Igora Royal brings True Colour in High Definition with uncompromising coverage and unbeatable retention.

When the colour went onto my hair, I was a little concerned as it looks really red. However, Yuki-san assured me it will turn out differently and asked me not to worry. At my age of 50, I certainly don't wanna walk around red head! Call me conservative, but I would rather stick to colours more suitable for my age.

After my hair colouring, I was given their 15-minute 2-Step Hair and Scalp Treatment:

Scalp Treatment Talassocomfort - Universal Alga Express + EKS Spa Eksperience Comfort for sensitive scalp.

naoki yoshihara eks spa talassotherapy scalp treatment review
I am not new to the brand EKS since my previous salon uses it too and I found it rather effective. I like the fact that EKS Talassotherapy is a professional treatment line that uses special active muds that are a result of a combination of Universal Algae powder with Aromacological Essences. The therapy contains special nutrients to relieve scalp, deep cleanse and moisturize and refreshes the scalp. It also boosts growth and restores natural balance in your hair.

Well, if you're doing any chemical treatments, always remember it's best to have a hair and scalp treatment after that to protect, detox, and repair the condition of your hair and scalp.

My Thoughts:
I have countless experience with Japanese hair salons being a frequent traveller to Japan, and I have to admit by and large, they are stronger in their customer service and extremely polite. The interior of Naoki is nothing posh, but it is relatively comfortable and chic, and I like the spacious interior.

The pretty Yuki-san is friendly and extremely gentle. There was hardly any communication problem noting the fact that she has just relelocated to Singaore not too long ago, except for the OmbTre colour I wanted initially.

It is also good to have colour charts for reference so that customers can understand the lingo better. It is difficult for me to visualize the colours, so I requested for samples and got these which is good enough.

Well, I am certainly looking forward to Masa-san attending to me in May. In the interim, Yuki-san will be taking care of my hair for now. ユキさん、ありがとうございました。
