Omotesando in Tokyo is the place to go for the latest trends. We visited Merkmal, a beauty salon loved by models and known for its amazing hair styles.

Omotesando in Tokyo is a trendy and yet calm area popular with young adults and fashion fans. It is the area to go if you want to visit a new cafe after spending the day shopping. Not only fashion shopping can be done here though, there are also many fabulous make-up shops and unique beauty salons here. If you want to relax and have a total make-over, Omotesando is the place to go.

A Secret Salon Recommended by Popular Models

At first glance, this building may look like an ordinary one-story home in a quiet residential area, but when you go up the stairs and open the door, you will find yourself standing in a salon with a fresh and sunny atmosphere.

The Merkmal beauty salon is a salon that really lets you chill out in a comfortable space. It is loved by popular models and celebrities alike for its elegant atmosphere, reliable skills and impeccable service.

It has a good reputation among women in their 30s and 40s who care about beauty and fashion. Now, let us tell you the reasons why Merkmal is so popular.

Skilled at Making Adult but Cute Styles

Most of the customers in this salon are women in their 30s. Bob hairstyles, which combine feminine features and cuteness with ease of movement are quite popular here.

The staff here are also skilled at recommending which styles would best suit your face shape, age and style. So if you wish to have a complete image overhaul, then this is an ideal place to visit.

Great Hair Care with Organic Products

All of the shampoos and hair treatments used in Merkmal are organic, including the organic and henna-based coloring products for hair. These products are excellent for those that have sensitive skin or for pregnant women that want to keep up their beauty routine but don't want to expose their baby to any harmful chemicals.

Beauty Salon for Mothers

Merkmal also has a great service for mothers with small children - a private room with two seats and a space for children (a 20% service fee will be added to your bill for the room's use). Even if you have small children to mind, it's important to take care of yourself, and this way, you don't have to worry.

Become More Beautiful While Feeling Relaxed

The spacious seats are really comfortable, and you don't really have to leave your seat as almost all of their services save shampooing are done in the same seat.

Complimentary drinks offered in the beauty salon include fruit teas made with tea leaves and dried fruits. The sweet smell of strawberries or apricots and the taste of the fruits really helps you to relax. These are good for your beauty as well.

Sophisticated Services

A battery charging service, items for fixing your makeup, spare stockings, plasters which you can apply over blisters caused by poor-fitting shoes are provided to their customers as well here at Merkmal. This is a really good salon for travelers who may have spent a great deal of time outside everyday.

This multi-service salon was created by Mr. Kuramoto, who designed the salon with the principle of being a place where one can truly relax in mind. He came up with this idea while building his career in the Aoyama area.

Its comfortableness comes from not only its interior design but also from the services and care provided by the owner and staff.

The majority of beauty salons in Japan have high quality techniques and services that make it hard to choose one to visit from the many.

At Merkmal you can find your attractiveness as an adult woman through their sophisticated service and impeccable techniques. With many visitors coming from Chinese-speaking countries, online reservations in Chinese are available via Tokyo Liren. If you are curious about this salon, do pay a visit to Merkmal in trendy Omotesando.
