Hair stylist Yoshiko Morimoto is on a mission to bring the high level of style and service available in Beverly Hills to Japan. But unlike salons in the most exclusive parts of Tokyo, Morimoto offers this in English and at reasonable prices. Having trained in London and at top salons in New York and Los Angeles—where her clientele included Hollywood entertainers and models—she knows how to work with Western hair. Upon her return to Japan in 2001, Morimoto opened Afrodita near Yokohama Station. Today, clients travel from Saitama, Chiba, and Yokosuka just to get styled. And as customers from many countries will tell you, Morimoto never fails to satisfy them with her eye for style, especially with trending colors. Just look at the Facebook page, which is full of positive reviews. Her friendly, international staff all speak English, as well as other languages from across the globe. Afrodita salon even stocks exclusive American hair care brand Redken. Follow the photos of her latest cuts and colors on Instagram.
