Yuhei worked closely with Ms Yuko Yamashita, creator of the YUKO Hair Straightening System, as a senior stylist at a Yuko salon and also as a top instructor at a Yuko Academy in Japan. This involved media work and producing video materials for training programs in Tokyo.
Yuhei came over to the UK in 2002 to promote and demonstrate his highly sophisticated straightening technique in the UK and around Europe. Yuhei worked for the Yuko salon in Mayfair as a supervisor. His technique exceeded customers’ expectations, especially for those who had poor experiences in the past and had almost given up on having perfectly straight hair.
Yuhei’s clients are now spread all over Europe and the Middle East, and they travel to see him regularly. In 2008, Yuhei opened his salon “Yuhei” in Hampstead, London with his wife Reiko Kanda.
Reiko has been engaged in the YUKO Straightening System as long as Yuhei has, and was the general manager of the Yuko Salon in Aoyama, Tokyo.
Together, Yuhei and Reiko Kanda provide their high quality hair straightening service in a warm, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
