Formerly with the Roger Thompson salon at Barneys and then a leading cutter and stylist at Vidal Sassoon, Hanako has an exceptional eye, a deft hand, and a low-key perfectionism that has endeared her to the loyal clients who've followed her around the city to hairppy salon. Hanako's creativity and expertise enables architecturally precise, immaculate cutting for results that are both head-turning and natural, individual and easy to wear. "It all begins with dialogue,"notes Hanako. "I listen before offering suggestions. Sometimes, it's great to be able to offer a client a solution they may have dreamed of, but didn't think possible."

Shifa Yusuf : hairstylist ( available : Tuesday ~ Saturday )

A former senior stylist at Vidal Sassoon, Shifa has extensive industry experience, including styling for New York Fashion Week, films and magazine shoots.  Whether creating a look that’s windswept or tamed, her understanding of hair and versatility means that she can cut a mélange of hair textures into an eclectic range of graphic, precise and free-form styles - from classic Sassoon bobs to romantic cascades of random curls to daring catwalk designs. Shifa’s styles maintain form as they grow out -- long after you have left the artistry of the salon. They can be ‘wash-and-go’ managed or  styled with the slightest effort.
