St James Hair Studio

Posted November 23rd, 2009 in Perth WA, Ume's Interests 12 Comments »

I was very excited to try this hair salon in Northbridge.  One reason is that I was dying to get hair cut, and another is that I wanted to meet this stylist “Kazu”.  I made a booking with Kazu and had a chance to chat with him on Sunday.

Kazu has been working at this St James Hair Studio for 10 years now. He was also a hair stylist in Japan, worked in Tokyo for 9 years, then moved to Perth.  Along with his job at this salon, he goes back to Japan annually to update his skill and knowledge by attending on seminars and catching up with his friends who are also hair stylists.

At the salon, I showed Kazu a sample photo of a hair style and told him how I want my hair to look like, then moved to another chair to get shampoo.  He put a steamed towel on my neck and massaged my head, it was so good.  He told me my muscle is tense – I didn’t know that there’s muscle on the head!  And, he could tell right after touching my head that my body is tired.  He is a pro!

He gave me lots of tips as well.  I asked him how I should dry my hair, naturally or by drier?  How to use hair iron and curler?  He gave me an advice on all the questions I asked, by demonstrating!  He showed me how to dry my hair: wear heat-proof conditioner on the hair first then blow dry completely with strong hair drier.  Then straighten up my fringe with iron, and curl the bottom of my hair with curler.  Wow my hair looks so different…

If you are seeking some tips or answers regards to hair, he is the one 🙂  He has many patrons here, including Japanese, Malaysian, Singapore, Australian etc.  I recommend you to book him at least 1 week in advance…  oh and he is going on holiday from 04/Jan till 24/Jan next year.

    Hi Annie,

    Ummm… I don’t quite remember, but about same as other places. It depends on how you like your hair to be, (perm, coloring etc) and the length of your hair.
    You can give them a call to find out 😀

    Hi Ume,

    Just realize that Kazu is no longer working at St James. Do you know if he is still doing haircut in Perth?

    Hi Jennifer,
    I received so many queries about Kazu!
    Unfortunately I have no idea where he is and works now. Sorry I couldn’t be any help 🙁

    Hi Ume,

    Many thanks for your quick response 🙂

    Do you know if there’s any other good hairstylist in Perth?

    Hi Jennifer,
    I’ve tried Hair Plus in Perth couple of times. She was great too. 😀

    I also go to K Three G in Northbridge (I ask for the owner, or a girl called Bani). They are Korean but I like how they recommend on the hairstyle when you are not sure what you want.
