“I used to go to AOI beauty salon to get my Japanese Hair Straightening done. I decided to try Thomas because AOI can not fit my schedule and Thomas use the same product for the treatment. I couldn't be happier cuz I paid much less and get the same result. Thank you Thomas”

“I have been going to Thomas for Japanese Hair Straightening since 2002. I am very happy with the result. Last year, I went to try the Brazilian Blowout and it was a big mistake. It didn't work on my hair and it cost way more than the Japanese Hair Straightening. I am back at Thomas's for hair straightening and my hair is smooth and shiny again. He has recently started his own business. His price is very reasonable and better than most salons. I will definitely recommend Thomas to everybody.”

“ Thomas is an amazing creative hairstylist! I have been getting haircuts from him ~ 8 years. He seems to have magic power and he always give me the stylish cuts that fits my facial features perfectly! Sometimes I just sit and let him cut away, and I'm never disappointed! I love every hair cut he has done for me... long, med, or short length! Never a boring haircut! I always get compliments from people I know and strangers I see on the street for my haircuts! How can I live without him!? I definitely recommend you to book an appointment and try it out yourself! You will love your hairstyle very much!”
