Walked past did shop and decided to enquire about their eyebrow embroidery (i did not look online for reviews or anything. chanced upon the shop). Was told by the sales person that there is only 2 packages - $380 vs $980. They obviously tried to sell me the $980 service (no downtime. effect of this looks like you've shaded your eyebrows) by telling me the cons of the $380 service (downtime of 3-5 days i.e. cannot wash eyebrows/touch water on eyebrows for 3-5 days. effect of this is a line-by-line drawn on your eyebrow to mimic them). paid a total of $1018 ($980+$38 for a soothing gel) The treatment was almost painless (minimal pain) and the beautician did a good job in designing my brows (2 different designs to choose from) before finally proceeding. i'm very satisfied with their service in general but dissatisfied later that i found out through searching online that there were many intermediate price range, which i was not informed about despite specifically asking 2-3 times as i was quite taken aback that the price was so steep.If i had been informed about the differences between the services, i might have made a more informed choice..

My first experience with jap salon. Went for haircut yesterday. Overall service was good. But i expect a better skill from director level. Not worth the money of $80 just for a normal haircut. After haircut my hair look frizzier. Doesnt meet my overall expectation.

i did fringe rebonding. the effect is quite good. it does not lay flat on my face. pricing is on the high side but they did wash and blow the entire hair for me after the rebonding. i like it that it does not have a lot of waiting time though.
