9月のおすすめ本は美術の杜 Vol.21です。

September’s book is Vol. 21 of the art journal, Bijutsu no Mori.  The journal features many genres of art including paintings, calligraphy, pottery and photography.


この本に 山崎さんのおじいさんの作品があります!!

This particular volume was given to me by Mr. K’s grandmother because it includes a painting by Mr. K’s grandfather!!  The painting is lovely and especially fitting for this month because of the beautiful Autumn colors ♡

Please enjoy looking at September’s book while having your hair colored or permed!

もし良かったらパーマやカラーの待ち時間に是非読んでみて下さい。 🙂

私の一番見てみたい場所はエジプトのアブ・シンベル神殿♡ 一番見たい場所を見つけてください! 😀


August’s book features beautiful photos and includes information about ‘80 of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites’.  My dream is to visit Egypt and see Abu Simbel and Philae.  I would like to hear about places you want to see or places you have visited ♪

You can read more information and see photos of the 981(!!!) World Heritage Sites, listed by country, here.

お久しぶり、 Jenniferです!一昨日天神祭へ行きました 🙂 





These photos are from the ‘Tenjin Matsuri’, a shinto festival held every 24th and 25th of July at Tenman-gu shrines all over Japan.  In Matsue, the ‘mikoshi’ are paraded down the streets, which are lined with food and game booths.

天神祭3 The shrine is lit up and packed with festival goers coming to pay homage to the god of scholarship.  It is one of my favorite parts of summer!

松江シティーMembers of Matsue City FC were also at the festival! Go Matsue 🙂

松江シティーFCの選手にも会いました!!次のゲームも勝ってください ♡

7月のおすすめ本は ジ・アート・オブコクリコ坂からです。コクリコ坂からは2011のスタジオジブリ映画です。私はこの映画が大好きです。ビューティフルアニメーションです!

7月20日上映の新しいジブリ映画:’風立ちぬ‘ !もちろん見たいです ♡


July’s book is from a series entitled ‘The Art Of … (insert film, comic, video game, etc.)’ and features From Up On Poppy Hill, a 2011 Studio Ghibli film I fell in love with.  Like other Studio Ghibli films, From Up On Poppy Hill is absolutely, beautifully animated.

Now that summer is here I’m looking forward to the next Studio Ghibli movie, ‘Kaze Tachinu’ (The Wind is Rising) which will be released on July 20th, here in Japan!

Please enjoy looking at July’s book while having your hair colored or permed!

Container Gardening part II

In honor of Father’s Day, I’d like to share some pictures of my dad’s garden 🙂

二年前オレゴン州に帰って、久しぶりにうちの庭を見ました。うちの父が造った庭です。彼のおすすめは ‘ホスタ’ です。ホスタは毎年成長が早くて、葉の色がとても綺麗だからです。ヘアーイノベーションにもホスタがいるかな?


Mr. K and I visited Oregon in 2011 and enjoyed the backyard with the stone steps and walls my dad built himself!  One of my dad’s favorite plants is hosta, a fast growing perennial with beautiful green leaves.  You can see some next to the bench. ♫

最近花ワールドにホスタ を見つけて、購入しました!早く大きくならないかな〜☆
Recently, I saw some hosta at a garden shop!  I decided to get some for the container gardens at Hair Innovation.  I’m really excited to watch them grow over the summer☆



Here are some more pictures of my home in Ashland, Oregon.  This is my dad’s ‘bistro’.  On sunny days, my parents enjoy breakfast together near the honeysuckle, which is very fragrant.  The two pictures below are more views of the backyard.  Aren’t they lovely and green?  They inspire me to make beautiful container gardens for Hair Innovation. 😉

ハッピーファザーズデイ ♡ Happy Father’s Day, Dad!!







父の日も近いので素晴らしいタイミングですね 😉


Darth Vader and Son is the perfect book for June since Father’s Day falls on the 16th.  As a Star Wars fan, this book caught my eye right away.  The author, Jeffrey Brown, has cleverly incorporated characters, locations and quotations from the Star Wars universe into a delightful book about the joys and trials of fatherhood as experienced by one of the world’s most iconic villains.  The fantastic illustrations capture the juxtaposition perfectly, as when Darth Vader like so many fathers, receives a tie for Father’s Day (where and how will he where it??).

Please enjoy looking at it while having your hair colored or permed!

Container Gardening part I

こんにちは、Jenniferです!今回はガーデンの紹介です 😀



Now that the weather is finally warmer, I got to work on the container gardens of Hair Innovation.  This one has evergreen plants (I hope) of different textures and colors, so it should  grow over the summer and then survive the winter for an all-season show 🙂


このポットにはいろんな多肉植物を入れました。かわいくて、育てるのが簡単なグリーンです。 😉


Succulents are also green year round, easy to take care of and come in many varieties and colors.




Mr. K’s mother brought this beautiful peony to the salon the other day.  The color is ‘Oriental Gold’ and the flowers are lovely and very fragrant!






May Book of the Month

5月の本は2006年の オレンジページVol.5です。

この本は最初おもしろいから見てとお客様に教えてもらい読んで私は凄くこの本が好きになってオーダしました!本の中は美味しそうでヘルシーなレシピがいっぱいあります。例えばオーガニック寒天デザート。「ソイカプチーノゼリー」または「ベリーと豆乳のデザート」私はこの二つを近いうち作りたいと思っています。 🙂



May’s book is actually a ‘mook‘ (the Japanese portmanteau of ‘magazine’ and ‘book’) titled  ‘Orange Page’.  This issue dates from all the way back in 2006 😉 and was lent to me by a customer.  I enjoyed it so much, I ordered one for myself!  The features include vegetarian and organic dishes, and even recipes for vegan sweets using ‘kanten’ (agar) as a gelatin substitute.  Since I don’t eat eggs, I want to try the recipes, especially the berry soy milk dessert 🙂  Also featured are main dishes with ‘nasu’ (the Japanese eggplant), and ‘sōmen‘ recipes, which I’m looking forward to try now that the weather is finally warmer!!

Please enjoy looking at it while having your hair colored or permed!

Happy May Day!


今日は5月1日=メーデー!! メーデー私の一番好きな日です 🙂


私の好き映画 Camelotステキなメーデーシーンがありますから是非見て下さい!


May Day originated in ancient Europe to celebrate the warmer spring weather.  Maypole dancing, the crowning of a May Queen, bonfires and feasting were traditional parts of the celebrations.  May Day is my favorite day of the year because it represents things I really love like sunny days, flowers, dancing and romance, and makes me feel like singing, frolicking and handing out flowers. 🙂

One of my favorite movies, Camelot, includes a fantastic May Day inspired scene to the song “The Lusty Month of May”.  You can see it here.  Enjoy!

Happy May Day!!

Colour Refine by ESSENSITY

Ciao! I’ve been trying the organic Colour Refine products from ESSENSITY because I’m always changing my hair color (*^ _^*)!!  These products are meant to enrich the hair while maintaining the vibrancy of the color.  I follow the shampoo and conditioner with the leave-in treatment, and then style as usual. I am so happy to be using organic hair care products again and am very pleased with the soft texture and manageability of my hair. 😀      I highly recommended this fantastic organic line to those of you who color your hair!
