Sozo Hair Design
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!”
