Hi Kelsey~ I moved to Tokyo for the next two months for an internship and I was thinking on doing something about my damaged, wavy and not-a-very-pretty-color hair but... as a foreigner it's scary ;; how do you take care of your hair (cut, color, haircare...) here? Any recommended products or places? ;w; Thanks a lot! — Melody

Hi Melody~~ Welcome to Japan! ^^

The salon I always go to is Earth, because it’s cheap and can be found basically anywhere. In Canada, hair isn’t taken very seriously and anyone can open up a shop if they have the money for it. In Japan, every hairdresser has a degree. This makes it a lot safer to go to even the cheapest of places. ^^

Shampoo + cut + styling is usually around 3000 yen (different locations vary). Straight perm + treatment is around 12,000 yen. You can sometimes find coupons on beauty.hotpepper.jp as well (make sure you find coupons for the location you’re going to, as different locations have different coupons as well)!

If you’re worried about speaking Japanese, you could either bring a friend (I did the first time) or just use pictures.

For color, I haven’t really been dying my hair recently, but from what I’ve read online and tried for myself, you can usually trust the drugstore brands and just do it yourself. The instructions are very easy to follow and it’s not too messy, either. I used Beauteen because I heard that it’s supposed to be less damaging. Apparently the cheapest place to buy hair dye is Don Quixote!

Hope that helps! ^^

Do you get the night shift at the maid cafe where the grown men and alcoholics come in? How is that like?

Uuuuh I don’t think any maid cafes are open past 11 pm. O_O None that I’ve heard of, anyway. You might be thinking of girls bars or kyabakura.

But yeah, new customers can be the scariest, really. > 3< The regular customers are usually really nice and really want to support the cafe and the waitresses. With new customers, you never really know. Some become regulars, while others just go there once when they’re already drunk for laughs and pick on the waitresses. I only remember one incident where we had to actually tell a group to leave, though. Most Japanese are more polite and reserved (at least in public, lol).

For the most part, I don’t think people go to maid cafes to get drunk. Most places sell alcohol and a lot of people might get tipsy, but I don’t think most people go to maid cafes with the intent of getting blackout drunk. It’s a really fun job, and I felt really safe where I was. The other girls always had my back. ^^
