Toni & Guy- Hiroo
Toni & Guy are known all around the world for their high quality hair salons, so this is often a reliable place to start when looking for a English speaking hair dresser in Tokyo. At last count there were six Toni and Guy salons located around Tokyo, including this one in Hiroo. Conveniently located in the Hiroo shopping street, the Hiroo Toni & Guy is a bright and busy salon, offering the latest in hair cuts and colours. Making an appointment is easy as the Reception staff speak English extremely well, but be careful when selecting your stylists as some speak English better than others. If you are looking for an expert colourist, Jumpei is highly recommended as he speaks English very well, so communicating about the hair colour result you are after is no problem.
