Hair/Make up Artist/Photographer [Creative director]
Japan, Kagawa native Born in 1982
What characterizes my style is “Total Transformation”. Capturing one as multiple perspectives: hair, makeup, fashion, the individual, personality, and images through photographs, to present the value of REBIRTH.
I believe in the magic of taking action on outer appearance to alter the inner character and that is what the hair and makeup incarnates. And I do this by Integrating all of my strengths. My work involves logic, knowledge, and refined techniques. What I do is withdraw the potential and power of individual.
A turning point in my life as a hair and makeup artist was working at MANICPANIC JP: hair color brand based in N.Y.
Not only acquiring the techniques of hair cut and styling, I also pursued the knowledge of chemicals used for all kinds of hair care, and focused on product development. When I was 23 years old, I became salon manager there, but then moved on to work at MASHU salon, which had sisters salons all over Japan. I soon became the number one hair stylist there.
Since 2011, I’ve been director of hair and makeup for several movies and became chief hair producer at Tokyo Collections— The biggest fashion collection in Japan. I was also in charge of various hair trade magazines. Getting support from many celebrities: nationally recognized artists, singers, and actors, now I am managing my own hair salon called* REVELS Tokyo. I am also giving hair seminars, and producing original hair care product. Furthermore, I am working as a photographer to realize my mind of creative direction.
