The development of Japanese hair cutting techniques dates back to the 1970’s. Triggered by Vidal Sassoon’s revolutionary hair cutting technique that shook the hairdressing world in the 1960s, Japanese hairdressers rushed to England in the 70’s to acquire the art of the “Sassoon Cut”. Upon their return to Japan, hairdressers at the time researched and developed a unique version of the Sasoon Cut to take into consideration East Asian head shapes and hair types. Following which, Japanese hair cutting technique began and still maintains to be well-regarded in Asia. Nowadays, hairdressers in Japan undergo a meticulous training process. Nationally qualified and possessing a beautician license, candidates obtain employment at a beauty salon after 2 years of cosmetology school and upon passing the national licensing exam. Only following 3 to 5 years of training as an assistant and passing a salon technical test are they finally permitted to cut clients’ hair for the first time.
