Things to do in Japan A Beauty Pilgrimage
Leaves are changing color and autumn is the perfect time of the year here in Japan to travel and enjoy the beauty of nature. So I went on a quick getaway to Kyoto where I came across one of the Yojiya stores.
I recently went to have a treatment in a beauty salon, Lapôria which is a special salon hidden from view, located in the quiet residential neighborhood of Shirokanedai. Here is my review!
I’m sure some of you are shocked reading the title. Yes you read it right: I’m going to introduce you a traditional Japanese beauty service which consists in shaving the face in a barber shop. We have the tradition to get a beauty shave from time to time, where we get the whole face and sometimes even the hairline and the top of the back shaved. We especially do that before important occasions, such as wedding or big parties where you wear nice dresses, but also more randomly just like we go and get a facial treatment service.
As it’s getting colder and colder here in Tokyo, it’s a great idea to get beautiful nails to cheer us up! Indeed having shiny studs, bright colors and sophisticated patterns on the nails can only make a woman happy! As I mentioned in my previous posts about Japanese nailart, people here get inspired from various fields when it comes to nailart and we like to match the nail designs to season too.
In my new service Book & Go to a salon in Tokyo I worked with the hair salons on the perfect plan for you to have during your trip in Japan; I have always asked the salons to include the Head Spa service. Why? Because first fo all I, personally LOVE Head Spa 😀 , and then I really think it’s a wonderful experience for you to understand the quality of Japanese service and feel the efficacy of such a service on your hair and scalp. Last reason: it is a perfect occasion for you to rest, relax, and forget about the hassle of crowded Tokyo. It is an ideal break between never…
As I have already presented in my post on the eyelash curlers, my favorite way to have beautiful well curled eyelashes is definitely the permanent of eyelashes. Eyelash perm demands high technical skills
In Japan, the permanent service is much more common in hair salons than in West. According to the Japan Perm Association, in 2015, 30% of people aged from 20 to 60 had a perm. I, personally, have been perming my hair about every 4 to 6 months for maybe the past 15 years.
As mentioned in my past post on Onsen, hot spring and its miraculous beauty skin effects, the Kawanaka Onsen in Gunma prefecture is one of the top 3 onsens rated for its results on the skin. As autumn is one of the best seasons in Japan to go to the mountains, as you can enjoy the colourful autumn leaves, I decided to go and check by myself the famous Onsen with a friend.
