There’s a certain art to the way in which Japanese salons runs that we absolutely love. The dedication to detail, the client first attitude that is sometimes a miss in Hong Kong, and their ability to always produce fantastic results. Whether that’s with nail designs, eyelash extensions or hair cuts, there’s no doubt about it, the Japanese knows what’s up when it comes to beauty. Japanese style eyelashes are huge at the moment and that’s due to the specific way that eyelashes are applied for Japanese style lashes, which means that it’s not only safer for clients, but they are applied individually with soft lash-like materials so you’re lashes look flawless. Want to know where to go for a Japanese salon that can tick all the right spots? Here are our favourite Japanese salons that are absolutely nailing it- pun intended.
