I wish you a beautiful start of the year! 

皆さまあけましておめでとうございます。 今年もどうぞよろしくお願いいたします。

I'm having a break in Japan now. 

ただいま日本で休暇をいただいております。

We always visit this small shinto shrine ⛩ on new year's day. It was a beautiful morning. 

いつもお参りする氏神様。とてもいいお天気でした。記憶にある限り、元旦の朝はいつも晴れです!

What I have been up to is as below if you are interested. :) 

以下これまでの日記(?)です。

Met my nephew for the first time. He is a lovely smiling baby! 

初めて甥とご対面。ニコニコ坊やです。ちなみに10ヶ月で10キロゆうに超えていて重いです。

Hi! Hope you are well.

I get asked from my client about some recommendations in London.

So I thought I will make a list. Hope it helps!

Japanese Restaurant

Akari 

I haven't been there since I moved home, but I liked the decor and friendly staff with quite authentic Japanese food.

Yoisho

Again, I haven't been there for ages (I don't really go to Japanese restaurant here. :))

But I like this Izakaya style restaurant.

I took a weekend off (thank you for your understanding as usual!) and I went to Dublin to run a marathon. 

先日お休みをいただきましてダブリンマラソンを走って参りました。(いつもお休み中はご迷惑をおかけしますがご理解いただきましてありがとうございます!)

Temple Bar (obviously I didn't drink though.)

It was my second full marathon. 

これが私にとって2度目のフルマラソンでした。

The weather was really nice (sunny /cloudy about 13 ℃)

お天気は私にとってはちょうど良い13度くらいで晴れ時々曇り。

The crowd was really friendly and gave me lots of energy. 

I just enjoyed the whole way. 

沿道には沢山の人達が出ていて沢山応援いただきました。子供たちとハイファイブするとすごくパワーもらえました。

I finished in 4 hours 13m...

I went to Salon International yesterday. 

There are lots of exhibitors from the UK, Europe, US, and even Hong-Kong etc. 

We can try and purchase hair and beauty products. (I saw 3 scissors were sold for 80 pounds. Gosh, how long would it last?) 

There were seminars from well known salons and famous hair stylists as well. 

I bought myself a water softener shower attachment. If I can see the difference, I will use it in the salon as well! 

Thanks for reading. Have a lovely day!

Hope you had a nice summer and and enjoying the autumn colours. 

I am going to Dublin to run a marathon  the end of the month. 

So the salon is closed on 28th and 29th October.

Also, after visiting Turin in May, I have been thinking about going to Italy again and I am visiting  Bologna from 12th to 14th November. 

We are likely to be busy around that times, so if you would like to make an appointment, please do so as soon as possible. 

I have more trips in winter, but will write about it la...

You might have heard about OLAPLEX. 

What is it? 

It is a wonderful treatment for the hair. (simple) 

I have tried with my hair and love it! 

If you are interested, I will explain. :) 

 There are 3 steps. 

No. 1 Bond Multiplier 

This concentrated first salon step rebuilds broken disulfide bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair. 

We use it when a client has OLAPLEX stand alone treatment service and also we mix with hair colour and perm solution followed by No. 2.

No.2 Bond Perfector

Hope you are enjoying this summer weather. 

I'm not only running and having holidays. 

I am a hairdresser and thought, I need to post some pictures of hair styles. (I always forget taking pics) 

So, here is one. 

I didn't take before picture, but she had hair colour about two months ago and the dyed part was getting brassy and she wanted to go lighter for summer. 

It looks quite natural on this picture, but I did bleach twice with foils and for the roots, I used dark ash brown, for the highlight bits, I used light ash violet as...

Hi there, 

Just wanted to let you know that the answer phone in the salon is not working.. 

When I get to the salon this morning, it said there were 5 messages, but I could only listen 1message!

So if you have left a message and haven't heard back from me, I am so sorry! 

I'm back in the salon now, so please call me again or send me email! 

Thank you! 

P. S. I had a lovely time in Turin. Thanks!
