Sozo Hair De­sign

Expat Living (Hong Kong) - - Body & Mind -

Sozo Hair De­sign is a bou­tique hair salon lo­cated near the heart of Lan Kwai Fong. Sozo di­rec­tor YOKO HISATOMI LANE opened the salon in 2013, bring­ing her ex­pe­ri­ence honed in Tokyo and Syd­ney to Hong Kong.

While the team of stylists of­fers a range of ser­vices to men, Sozo spe­cialises in a Ja­panese ther­a­peu­tic scalp care treat­ment us­ing Kevin Mur­phy maxi wash prod­ucts for its male clients.

“The weather is hu­mid in Hong Kong and the life­style can be very stress­ful for peo­ple liv­ing here,” Yoko says. She says this not only af­fects the bal­ance of the nat­u­ral oils in your hair, it can ac­tu­ally cause hair loss. “You need to clean your scalp prop­erly – some peo­ple don’t re­alise how bad scalp smell is. Keep­ing your hair healthy is due to keep­ing your scalp in a healthy state for grow­ing good hair.”

The spe­cial scalp treat­ment in­cludes a head mas­sage and a sparkling wa­ter shower to help with cir­cu­la­tion and nour­ish the scalp, mak­ing it a pop­u­lar treat­ment all year round.

Yoko says groom­ing for men is im­por­tant in Hong Kong. “Peo­ple liv­ing here are mostly pro­fes­sion­als – bankers and lawyers and so on – so their faces and hair styles are very im­por­tant in mak­ing a good or bad first im­pres­sion. It’s very im­por­tant to look good all the time!”
