The Japanese style of service known as “kikubariâ€ pronounced “key-koo-BAH-ree is special. It includes everything from letting clients feel relaxed and happy, to serving you Japanese tea and greeting you at the door with genuine smiles and polite gestures.
Aside from great hospitality and service, the Japanese also comes up with unique types of styling, giving you a different look for your hair. Compared to Korean salons, which focus on volume with services like volume magic rebonding, Japanese salons focus heavily on layering. This style of hair cutting gives you a textured look, while dying your hair a milky brown, giving you a trendy look.

With modern wooden boards placed in between each seat, the salon provides you privacy when your hairstylist treats or cuts your hair. Covo Hair Salon uses Vidal Sassoon Techniques, which creates the best hairstyle to match your face shape, bones structure, eye colour, and even your skin tone.
