Yuko Home-Based Hair Salon

Posted September 6th, 2009 in Perth WA 4 Comments »

I had my hair cut and colored in Perth few weeks ago. The lady who did my hair is Japanese. I knew about her from Perth News – a Japanese website in Perth. She currently uses her house as a salon. 🙂

As I hadn’t had my hair cut for awhile, my hair was a mess! She showed me few Japanese hair catalogs, and I decided to go with light marron color hair. I asked her to make a fringe too, just for a change. My hair is around 10cm below shoulders, and it was $120.00 including cut, color, shampoo and dry. I think it’s pretty cheap.

She said that she’s been working as a hair stylist in Tokyo since she graduated her school in Japan. She also has experiences working in a hair salon in Perth, and last year went back to Japan for 3 months as holiday. As soon as her old colleagues knew she was in Japan, they called her up and asked her to work in the hair salon that she used to work before. According to this story, she must have been a good worker!

When I told her that I was getting married in few weeks, she offered me to get aqua-gel nails. She’s into nails (manicure, pedicure) too and brought a machine from Japan.

This machine produces UV -Ultraviolet light. Aqua -gel become solid under UV, so what she does is brush aqua-gel on nails and put the fingers inside of this machine. After 30 seconds the gel becomes solid (but not too hard). I decided to have this aqua-gel nails done, I knew I had to do something with my nails before the wedding anyway…

I got graduated pink color with silver stones.

Her price list:

☆CUT Mens $20 / Ladies $30

☆Colour $100~(include cut&shampoo&pretreatment&browdry)

☆Perm $100~(include cut&shampoo&pretreatment&browdry)

☆super straight perm $200~(include cut&shampoo&pretreatment&browdry)

She uses Japanese products such as ShiseidoMilbon.

    hi umeboss, thanks for sharing that! I want to colour my hair but most perth salons are too expensive. Japan has one of the best hair styling techniques and technology so I really want to try this one. May i know where is Yuko san located?
    (congrats on your wedding!)

    Hi, I noticed that this post in dated back in 2009. Does Yuko still have her home-based hair salon today?

    Hi Concon,
    I’m not sure if Yuko still operates her business in Como…
    I haven’t heard from her for a long time, so I suppose she’s closed it or moved to somewhere. 🙁
