Komachi The Hair Cult @ International Building
- Hairdressing by Japanese Hairstylists
- Comfortable hair massage and great hair wash
- Attentive service from hairstylists
- Spacious environment
- Difficult to communicate in English
- More expensive than other salons though not necessarily significantly superior
4 years ago, Komachi the Hair Cult was one of the hottest, most raved about salons in Singapore.
Featuring top hairdressers Maeda-san, Ejima-san and Tsuji-san, the stylish, innovative and distinctly Japanese cut attracted praise from forums everywhere, from Flowerpod to Hardwarezone. Prices were a little steep then but the attentiveness shown by the Japanese hairstylists and the joy derived from the highly satisfactory haircut keep customers coming back for more.
Fast forward 4 years, Komachi is a different place. They have now moved their premises to the less dodgy International Building (Scotts Orchard area). Maeda-san, Ejima-san and Tsuji-san have all left, replaced by raved Monma Tsuyoshi, Kohji Matsunaga Rie-san (all three from Japan) and Frank Zuo (from China). Generally, service is still good. Rie-san, especially, is bubbly and attentive. Head massage here is also comfortable. Like before, communication can be a challenge as Rie-san does not speak English well. So bring along a picture if you have a clear idea of what you want.
Although Japanese hairstylists still exist in Komachi, not all Japanese hairstylists are equal. There are fewer praises observed about current hairstylists in Komachi. Also, with a Chinese hairstylist and a Chinese receptionist, the Japanese feel seemed to be have been dimmed slightly.
Overall, Komachi is a safe choice to go for for a stylish Japanese haircut, particular one by Monma Tsuyoshi. Service is generally good and haircut satisfactory. You might be able to find cheaper Japanese hairstylists out there but just in case they are all full with appointments, Komachi is always a good choice to fall back upon.
