With an established rapport within Islington for over 10 years and a broad range of professional experience, Hikari Salon are attempting to draw from their backgrounds and develop a warm and friendly salon in the heart of Upper Street with a focus on the client.
Rieko Nariuchi, a creative director and stylist with 10 years experience in Japan, has also won much acclaim in Wella and LOreal competitions here in London.
In Japan the culture is built of respect and thankfulness, always trying to think ahead of what people may need to ensure you’re in a position to provide for the needs. It’s the small things that make the difference in a Japanese salon; a blanket over a female clients lap when they are using a raised footrest to conserve their decency; a cold glass of fruit juice on a hot day; head massaging to relax both the hair follicles and the clients.
Hikari salon is installing back massage chairs for the clients which are offered complementary, and from our creative team of highly trained stylists we’ll be offering cuts to suit all. We use a selection of the best colour products from Loreal professional to wella; to ensure a quality finish every time. Upstyling is also available up on request and will be support with an extended consultation. For those looking for that radically different new look, we have ‘Great Lengths’ extensions or the Yuko and Kertatin straightening systems.
