A hair salon “THE SALON” is known that a top hair stylist Kenshin Asano who is living in New York, is involved as the producer of the salon. It opened in autumn 2008 with the concept “shape invisible feeling”ニューヨーク在住のトップヘアスタイリスト・KENSHIN氏がプロデューサーとして参加していることでも知られるヘアサロン「THE SALON」。それまでアメリカやイギリスそして国内のサロンでディレクターなどを担当したKENSHIN氏、、万福氏を含めた3人が「目に見えない“心”を形に」というコンセプトのもと2008年秋にオープンした。



ウェブサイト上ではヘアサロンでありながら自らメディアとして独自の視点でファッションやビューティー、アート、カルチャー、音楽情報など編集し「THE MAGAZINE」と称して公開しており、サロンスタッフの包括的なセンスの良さが垣間見え、ユーザーやサロン利用者との意識や感覚の共有を助ける重要なコミュニケーションツールとして役立っている。

また自分達を育ててきた「髪への恩返し」としてサロン業務とは別でNPO法人「JAPAN HAIR DONATION & CHARITY」を設立し、病気等で髪の毛を失った子供達へ医療用のカツラを無償で提供するため募金や毛束の寄付を呼びかけている。

ニュープロジェクトとして、「2010 THE SALON VISUAL “DREAMER”」のアートワークを手がけた田嶋吉信氏をクリエイティブディレクターに迎え、新しいビジュアルコミュニケーションを目的としグラフィックアートをテーマにした「THE SALON A to Z」も計画しており今後の展開に注目したい。


営業時間:10:00〜20:00 (日・祝日19:00まで)完全予約制
