Senior Stylist 

Kanako Oe joins us from Japan where she worked as both a stylist and a salon manager. She is originally from Wakayama but moved to Osaka to further develop her expertise.


Kanako brings to the team a multifaceted skills set: she has won many prizes in hair competitions, but is also experienced as a trainer. Japanese hair treatments such as digital and straight perms require an in-depth understanding of chemistry and product knowledge applied alongside extensive hair analysis. Kanako is able to apply her specialized industry knowledge to bring out the best in her clients.



We hope you visit us to seek her styling advice!


Senior Stylist 

I am happy to announce Nadeshiko's new addition to the team: Senior Stylist Noriko. Hailing from Shiga, Japan, Noriko takes pride in her 18-years of experience as a hairstylist, including opening her own private hair salon in her hometown at the age of 30. She joins us in Dubai looking for a new challenge. Noriko focuses on building trust with clients, proposing styles that suit each individual's bone structure. A specialist in men's cuts, short styles, and bob cuts, we have high expectations for her to showcase her skills.

Beyond the realm of beauty, Noriko enjoys capturing the beauty of plants and old buildings through her camera lens. This hobby not only enriches her personal life but also nurtures her aesthetic sense as a stylist.

I'm delighted that Noriko has joined Team Nadeshiko.
