What else to do in Japan, besides shopping, movie going and eating?

How about hair cutting, nail grooming and doing facial

Today I will introduce a very useful website – Hot Pepper Beauty. The Hot Pepper Beauty website will guide you step by step from searching, registering, booking to finally completing your first experience in Japanese salon.


The pros of using Hot Pepper Beauty

1. A strong search engine which helps to find the right hairstyle

If you want to change your look in the middle of your trip, the locational search function is your best fit.

2. There are trend reports on hairstyle being posted to the website on a regular basis. Providing the most updated hairstyle trends and hairdressers.


3. Provides hairdressers’ profiles, bloggers sharing platform, as a result, a better understanding of salon and hairdressers to the readers.


4. Hot Pepper Beauty provides online booking service, say bye bye to phone booking.

It is not an easy task to complete the booking on phone, especially the Japanese staff generally has a higher pitch when they talk, that even makes the whole thing more difficult.
