My name is Hiroko. I am a Japanese beauty expert and founder of Japonism in Beauty.
Although I was born in Japan, I grew up in France, where I completed all of my education (although I spent some time in the U.S. while attending university). After graduating with a BS in
Engineering, I came back to Japan and had a drastic change of heart. I decided to become a beautician, so I worked hard and received the National Beautician Diploma (for hair, make-up, facial treatment, and nail). I also attended the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London (for hair), and the London College of Fashion (for make-up).
I worked in different hair salons, practicing my skills and developing my unique aesthetics. After that, I worked at the world’s leading cosmetics company developing professional beauty products.
With my multicultural background and my unique insight into the world of beauty, I have a wealth of information. I want to share these innovative techniques, time-tested traditional routines, and
the latest cutting edge beauty products here in Japan with beauty enthusiasts the world over. That’s where you come in.

What is Japonism in Beauty?

From traditional routines, to the most recent innovations, you can master Japanese beauty trends here!

Your beauty experience in Japan
Let’s say you’re planning a trip to Japan, but you want to spare some time to experience something truly luxurious and unique. Between breath-taking world heritage sites, Michelin worthy restaurants, and shopping ‘til you drop, why not treat yourself to a world-class makeover? Whether it’s a new style from chic, industry leading hair salon professionals, a flawless manicure, or a transformative and relaxing facial or body treatment, Japan is the perfect place to perfect your style.
Whatever you choose, disappointment is definitely not on the itinerary. Japanese customer service is renowned the world over, thanks in no small part to a motto that literally means “The customer is god.” (お客様は神様 – okyaku sama wa kami sama) When in the hands of the highly trained, detail-oriented professionals that live to serve, a trip to a salon in Japan transcends the simple need for a new do; it becomes a destination as noteworthy as any tourist hotspot, only more luxurious and relaxing. The fact that you’ll look and feel great when you leave goes without saying.
Hiroko has seen the ins and outs of salon service outside Japan. Which means she knows exactly what you’ve been missing out on in your home country, and how to recommend a destination that’s, as Goldilocks puts it, just right.
And do not worry, Japonism in Beauty will help you overcome the language barrier by providing you with a translation support.
