Makoto Hayashi Self-employed
Makoto was born and grew up in Shodo island, Kagawa Prefecture in Japan.
He began his career working in hair salons in Osaka and then Tokyo, where he discovered his passion and skills for hairdressing. He spent fifteen years on the salon floor in Japan, developing his method of natural cutting and styling techniques. This very much is aimed at allowing his clients the ability to reproduce their hair styles once back at home.
He moved to Paris and spent a year joining a number of fashion week teams, before moving to London to continue his ambition to become a session stylist. He is currently working alongside the much beloved Naoki who worked at Shine for many years but now is so busy being a successful session stylist we rarely see him.
With over 20 years experience and a love of natural, creative styling we feel very lucky to have Makoto working with us.
