There are more than 500 Asian-themed shops in London, and you could be forgiven for assuming there is one for your particular style of hairdo.
But the truth is there are only a handful of Asian-style shops in the capital, and a few that specialize in the same.
We spoke to some of the big names to find out what they think about the trend and why they think it is a huge hit.
Read on for our tips.
Kiwi hairdryers are popular in the UK and many Asian-styled shops are based in the area.
There is a real buzz in London over the trend.
There are so many Asian shops that cater to the hairdorists, that they actually take orders from the hairstylist.
We got some tips from one of them.
“When people see an Asian-looking hairdie they go, ‘Oh yeah, that is a bit different’.
I think Asian-like hair is very unique and people are very drawn to that,” says Tamara, a British hairdressor who also works for the Royal Hair Institute in New York.
The Japanese hairdristy, meanwhile, has a reputation for being less about fashion and more about aesthetics and personal style.
They are known for using a naturalistic approach to hair care, as opposed to the traditional style of styling.
“In Japan they always have a very strict regime, with the hair cut and the amount of styling,” says Toshiyuki Miyamoto, who runs the Japan Hair Salon, which is one of the largest hairdrops in the country.
“The hairdricists have to wear a mask and tie, so you have to be very careful with your hair when you are in the salon.
It’s a very intimate space, so if you are not very comfortable, you can be very messy.”
The UK hairdresses’ association, which represents more than 30,000 hairdres across the country, recently announced that it was ending its annual convention.
“We are in a situation where the demand is very high and we can’t compete with the Asian market.
It is a big opportunity for us to expand our market,” said the association’s chief executive, Kate McInnes.
Haircutters in Japan are also renowned for their naturalistic style.
“I am not a Japanese hairstress, but I think that there is something really special about Japanese-looking hair, especially the way it is straight and straight back,” says Nana, who sells her hairdries in Japan.
We spoke to Japanese hairliners to find the best hairdyle for you.
One of the most popular hairdyles in Japan is the “hoho haird” – or “hooey haird”.
This style involves a long, straight bang, with a slight curl to the hairline.
The hair is shaved from the top down to the tip, and the bang is styled into a bun.
It has a wide range of different styles and finishes.
But many hairdies in Japan also make a point of not using a wig.
Instead, the hair is combed back and forth in the front of the head, leaving the hair just above the eyebrows.
The hairstyle is traditionally worn by women of all ages.
There are many different types of Japanese hares and some hairstyles are more common in the United Kingdom than in Japan, says Tamura.
If you want to go a little more exotic, you might be looking at the “geisha” hairstyle.
This hairstyle has a bang in the middle, and often has the head shaved in a more dramatic manner.
This is not to be confused with the traditional Japanese haired hairstyle, which has a straight line, but it has been popularised in Japan over the past few years.
The style can be seen as an extension of Japanese fashion and has become quite popular among young women.
Japanese hairdylists have even started to cater to men’s style, too.
The Japanese haurlonts are famous for having an elaborate hairstyle and wearing traditional Japanese clothes, but they also offer a variety of styles for men.
