Meet the Stylists: Mai (Stylist)




Stylist: Mai
Main Branch: Saratoga Salon

Q: Tell us about yourself. Where are you from? What are some of your career highlights?
A. After graduating from beauty school, I built my career as a hairstylist in Fukuoka prefecture, Japan where I was born and raised. In 2016, I made a big decision to come out to the states. I always dreamed of coming here, but it was just a dream for ‘some day’. Well, I said to myself, that ‘some day’ will never come if I don’t act now. So here I am. I’ve worked in various locations from LA to Texas and now in Saratoga. So many special encounters in each of these locations have made my life in the U.S. such a special one that I call it my second home.
Q: What's your specialty?

A: Creating customized perms that tailor to individual hairstyles and types. Perms can create movements that a simple haircut won’t be able to, and further adds personality and style to your hair.

Q: Why did you become a hairstylist?
A: Throughout my childhood, I was inspired by my grandmother who was a hairstylist owning several salons. Watching her enjoy her job to the fullest definitely influenced me.

Q: What do you love about your job?


A: I love being able to create beauty that can magically transport a customer from their busy everyday lives to a relaxing and wondrous place


Q: Tell us about your aspirations.
A: To become the one and only hairstylist for my customers. I want to always be confident and proud of who I am and the work I do by delighting every single one of my customers.
Q. Who’s your muse?
A: I look up to all my customers, staff, and salon owners I’ve met throughout my life. I’ve learned so much from each and every person. I also have major respect for my parents. Their existence and unconditional love for me is always an encouragement.
Q: What do you do on your free time?
A: I write on my own blog where I share my life experiences in the U.S. as a hairstylist.
Q: What’s your favorite quote?
A: If you can dream it, you can do it.
