I can't thank Michi enough!!!! – I got my hair relaxed and straightened by Michi in early September of 2009. I was so nervous about the whole process since I’ve seen others with not the best results from other hair stylists. I have very thick curly hair, but I always wanted wavy hair or very loose curls so it could be more manageable but still have volume. When I went in for my consultation and told Michi what I liked and what look I was after, she came up with a great idea. She suggested that she’ll straighten my bangs and the hair that frames my face, and the rest of my hair would be relaxed. I was scared that my hair was going to look dry and dead since I already had 2 old relaxers in my hair. The old relaxers for some reason didn’t stay in my hair, and my hair reverted back. So I decided to go to Michi to see if she could help me since she’s known for her skills in japanese straightening, and thankfully I did. My hair looks so awesome, I love it! My bangs are straight but not pin straight and the rest of my hair is just loose curls. I actually like wearing my “curly” hair now. It feels so nice to finally have my dream hair =] !!
I’m so glad I went to Michi, not only is she an expert on japenese straightening, but she also is the sweetest person. She knows so much about hair and is still open to learning more. When I was getting my hair relaxed we started talking about chemicals, and how they are in most household products. It’s terrifying that we are exposing ourselves to chemicals and we don’t even notice it. She inspired me to get a shower filter because of the chlorine that’s in the water. I’m so glad that she made all her hair products natural and cruelty free. I’m using her hair treatment in the blue bottle at the moment and it is working wonderfully.
Thank you again Michi, my hair looks amazing. It was so nice to meet you, I will see you again when my hair grows out! Thank you so so soooooo much!
Best hair straightner ever – I have been getting my hair straightened for over 15 years now. I have gone through all the various systems and methods including several Japanese treatment in various different places and/or town. Michi's is by far the best in all aspects. The actual straightening process itself yields the best results. Your hair remains healthy and shiny and looks great. The service is excellent and very professional. Additionally the Michi oils work very well, I love using them as they keep my hair healthy and get rid of the frizz and protect it. I highly recommend this place, I regret the time when I have to straighten my hair and I can't make the flight to CA to get it done.
The One and Only Michi!! Hair Straightening Master! – I have been a client of Michi's since I was 15 years old. I just turned 21, and Michi has always taken superb care of my hair. When I first met her, I was a little frizzy haired mess, and since I have been getting my hair straightened by her, I get nothing but compliments.
I was afraid to go to her at first because I had a bad experience when I was about 13 with some newbies at another salon who I let straighten my hair. This scared me away from the whole process, but I took a chance on Michi because my hair was so difficult and unimaginable, and am extremely happy I did.
The great thing about Michi is that she really cares about the overall well being of your hair. As silly as it sounds, she really has a sixth sense when it comes to understanding your hair and what it can handle, which will guarantee it staying healthy regardless of the processing. I highlight my hair in addition to the straightening, and I would love to go lighter, but Michi knows my hair would not be happy, so I stay at a reasonable shade:) She is the very reason you don't have to fear this process, and you will be extremely grateful you put yourself in her hands.
Now that I straighten my hair, there is no going back for me. I use to fear humidity, going to the beach, getting my hair wet at a pool party, and going anywhere that I would not have access to a flat iron. I fear no more.
Go to Michi! Get that dazzling straight hair you can count on to look great always, you will be happy you did!
I LOVE MY HAIR! – I have hair that is long, thick, semi-wavy, and unruly and I wanted to have healthy-looking straight hair for my wedding. I had read good reviews about Michi and her Japanese hair straightening technique so I decided to check it out. Michi did not disappoint!
She is lovely, professional and I got great results! My hair was not some weird stick-straight unnatural style, but actually came out soft, naturally straight-looking and very healthy, despite the fact that I also have highlights which makes the straightening process a bit trickier.
It's been 3 months since I had my hair done by Michi and I can still wake up in the morning, wash my hair and either blow-dry for a quick 3 minutes to get rid of the dampness or if I am in a hurry I just walk out the door. Either way, I have straight, tame hair with a bit of bounce. It is such a time saver and I don't have to worry anymore about how I am going to style my hair..it's been done by Michi. I have to say that it is worth every penny that I spent on the straightening process!
Stop Looking! YOU HAVE FOUND THE BEST! – Michi truly is as good as it gets. I have been going to her for about 5 years now and I trust NO ONE else with my hair! The Japanese Straightening has changed my life in more ways than one and Michi brightens my life with her cheery presence and professional styling. I love her so much that I moved to NYC and flew back to LA just to go to Michi. She makes you feel like a VIP when you get your hair done - she's got a private room with a DVD player, so bring your movies! Honestly, I wouldn't hesitate for one second to rec commend Michi for hair straightening, cut, color, etc. Go to her! You won't regret it and you will be so grateful to have Michi in your life!
The very best!!! – If you are going to have your hair straightened there is NO ONE better than Michi. I have been going to her for a years now and travel from Orange County to LA just to have her do my hair. I won't have anyone else touch my hair!
I must admit that the first time I had it done my hair was a bit to straight for my taste. The next time I went I explained to her how I wanted it to have some body and she did it just right! Have been going to her ever since.
What I like most about Michi is her geniune concern for the condition of your hair. I have never had any hairdresser care that much about my hair!
My hair tends to be dry and she has helped me repair that with her wonderful products!!
LOVE LOVE her.
Another satisfied customer – Michi gives it her all weather doing just a normal cut or hair straightening. She is one of the only hairdressers that actually cares about your hair. She has been doing my hair since I was six. Eight years ago I moved to Las Vegas and I was never satisfied with any of my hairdressers. I now travel to LA every few months just for a haircut from Michi. She is truly an artist.
Japanese straight perm-fection! – If you're looking to get your hair straightened, look no further! You've come to the right place. The ONLY place. I've been seeing Michi for many years, and it was the best decision I've ever made for my hair. I have naturally frizzy and very curly hair, and many years ago I made the mistake of choosing a cheap straightening alternative. My hair was severely damaged, and not even straight! A friend of mine had to shave her ENTIRE head after going to an inexperienced stylist. Then I found Michi, the answer to my prayers. She is absolutely THE expert in the japanese straight perm. She spends hours painstakingly making sure that each strand of hair is treated properly. She has a private room in the salon with the music or movie of your choice, which makes for a relaxing and fun experience with Michi's wonderful company. Your hair deserves Michi!!!
Michi does it all! – Michi has been cutting and highlighting my hair for 6 years. Her work is nothing less then perfection. I am often asked, "Where do you get your hair done? It is so beautiful!" The answer is Michi. I am a loyal client and would never dream of having anyone but Michi do my hair. So many times, highlighting can look overdone, unnatural or damage your hair. Michi only uses the best products. My hair always looks and feels heathy and beautiful. She takes her time with every appointment. I have never known anyone that cares more about the hair/and the client.
I?ve been a client of Michi?s for the last 8 years. During this time I ?stepped out? on her twice, and both times were horrific. Have you had a bad hair cut that left you crying for days, perhaps weeks? This was my experience. Hair is an important part of being a woman. We store emotion within our locks and once they?ve been brutally cut, it can feel like a really bad break up. I?ve never had this experience with Michi because Michi knows hair. It is her gift, her craft, her talent. While she is infamously known for her Japanese straight perms, I am not one of those clients. I have thick semi straight hair and she knows how it should be cut and colored. Michi listens to her clients, assess the hair and is able to deliver a hair cut and style that suits the person. Every time I leave her salon I feel like a new woman. My hair has movement, the color is multidimensional, and without fail, someone will comment on the fantastic cut. I have family who are stylists and they marvel at Michi?s wonderful work on my hair. If you?re fanatical about your hair, I highly recommend Michi.
