This may be a result of his experiences at his previous luxury hair salon back in Tokyo where he had experience cutting and styling models for Paris Collection as well as hairdressing for high-society customers who prefer a more edgy and stylish look. Haircut aside, he is pretty good with work-friendly non-bleach hair colours that give your hair the additional shine.




Hair Stylist & Makeup Artist

I love to see the look on customers' faces when I transform them from ordinary to extraordinary with the right makeup and styling!

There is an ease and warmth when we are around Kaori. Maybe its her welcoming smile, her natural willingness to help or perhaps her ability to speak fluently in English, Kaori makes us feel very comfortable the moment we enter Risel.
