atelier Y’s salon is located near Ginza Itchome Station. They have a hair salon and an eyelash extension salon under one roof. You can have your hair cut and then have your extensions done. Of course, customers who only want extensions are also welcome! 

Hair salon
Please feel free to tell them your desired style and what you want to convey in your own words. You are also welcome to bring magazine clippings or photos taken with your smartphone. After a thorough explanation of the price and technical details, they will begin the treatment. After the haircut is done they will explain about styling and home care so that you can recreate your hair style at home.

Eyelash extension salon
Eye-friendly eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions have become a standard fashion accessory, but some people are allergic to them, resulting in itching and swelling. The manager, Shimada, suffered from an allergic reaction to eyelash extensions and developed a treatment that is gentle on the eyelids. They prepare their own eyelash glue and are very creative in the way they apply the extensions. Even those who have given up on eyelash extensions are welcome to contact them and see if their method is suitable for them.

Medical Aesthe BLOOM

Medical Aesthe BLOOM is located as the annex of Shibuya Skin Clinic, which was opened by Dr. Takako Yoshida in Shibuya in 2004. When she started her clinic, she only provided medical care as a dermatology and cosmetic dermatology clinic. However, she came up with the idea to create a clinic with the benefits of beauty salon that could provide total beauty care not limited to medical care only. Medical Aesthe BLOOM was opened in 2006. After changing the location twice, it is now open on the second floor of the building next to the Shibuya fire station in Jinnan, Shibuya-ku.

Medical Aesthe BLOOM is operated under the concept of the Shibuya Skin Clinic, “Aiming to be your home skin doctor.” We respond to a wide range of problems from general skin diseases to beauty problems, as well as diet and physical fitness, physical improvement, women’s aging problems, and skin problems for children. In addition to female patients, more and more male patients are visiting our clinic. As our focus is not limited to medical care, you can feel the effects more clearly through a combination of several approaches such as medical treatment, esthetics and acupuncture. By compensating for each other’s weakness, Shibuya Skin Clinic and Medical Aestate BLOOM can meet the needs of patients in close cooperation. You can relax and enjoy your treatment in a private room.

Medical Aesthe BLOOM offers a variety of treatment options. 

For medical esthetics treatment, our beauty therapists (estheticians) with extensive beauty knowledge are in charge of relaxation massage, slimming care and pore cleansing care. At Hari-Kyu BLOOM, female acupuncturists give cure acupuncture treatments for lower back pain and stiff shoulders, as well as cosmetic acupuncture treatment for face swelling, dullness and skin quality improvement. It is said that acupuncture has been performed for over 2,000 years, and cosmetic acupuncture treatment started to be performed widely more than 10 years ago. Our clinic was at the forefront to adopt cosmetic acupuncture as a treatment option. Many people come to our clinic regularly to improve and maintain their physical condition.

For these past few years, under the title of Conditioning BLOOM, you can also try other beauty and health-related options such as personal physical training and color therapy.

Our biggest advantage is that we have an in-house doctor. Dr. Yoshida has a reputation for giving sound advice. You can consult with her easily even if you only have minor skin issues, and can get any medication necessary. In addition, while you are taking medical esthetics treatment, acupuncture or personal training program, you can also receive a high-concentration vitamin infusion in the esthetic dermatology department, or you can consult with the doctor about a mole or blemish that you usually don’t have the chance to address, even having it removed by laser on the same day if there is an opening. As people can solve their various problems at one facility, Medical Aesthe BLOOM is popular and highly recommended for busy people.

Salon Bon Bon International hair salon

Salon Bon Bon owner Yoshiko Kubo has years of experience working with foreign hair. She began her career in New York’s Manhattan Madison Avenue Salons, where she worked for 20 years  until 2017. During that time, she worked at several high-end salons and had the opportunity to work with celebrities, models and many other well-known people who sought her out. One of greatest outcomes of her time spent in New York was that she learned the coveted “dry cut” technique, which was originally created by hair stylist John Sahag of the John Sahag Workshop. It was here that Kubo trained in the “dry cut” technique under mentor Eiji Yamane, who had worked directly with John Sahag for many years, prior to returning to Japan.

This “dry cut” technique provides the most accurate hair cut in terms of shaping and control. Many clients are also surprised by how much longer the cut lasts and how easy it is to style and maintain. Because of the precision of this difficult-to-master technique, Kubo is able to create the exact shapes the client desires in her cuts, which are both stylish and sophisticated. This technique works great with curly and wavy hair as well, because she is able to analyze the hair shape and cut with great precision to make it more manageable on a day-to-day basis.

Her other speciality is Japanese hair straightening and coloring. With Japanese hair straightening, there is little worry about damaging the hair and Kubo’s original method creates healthier, shinier and softer hair. Further, with Kubo’s techniques, clients’ hair won’t look unnaturally stick-straight but rather as natural flowing, soft, straight locks. What’s even better is how easily it can be styled after treatment. With Kubo’s dry cut technique and Japanese hair straightening combo, many women say their entire morning routine was shortened down to just five minutes. Imagine having perfect hair every day in a fraction of the time it normally takes. For coloring, she also has extensive experience, so feel free to ask about anything from single color, to highlights, to balayage and even funky hair colors. Her mindset is to create the most desirable hairstyle without damaging the hair.

Salon Bon Bon always uses the best quality products and treatments. Kubo also uses special tools such as nondamaging hair dryers and irons that provide a super silky and shiny look. These salon-grade hair styling tools actually improve the quality of your hair the longer you use them. If you are interested in getting some new tools to style with at home, please ask for more details or come to the salon to try them out.

Kubo goes the extra mile to fulfill her mission of ensuring everything she offers gives clients a lifetime of hair happiness.
