This native of Japan honed his hair styling skills by studying with the top stylists in the beauty capitals of the world, including Tokyo, Paris, London and New York. Ishi has been strongly influenced by the elegant, soft and sexy look of French hairstyling, as well as the impeccable level of customer service traditionally found in Japanese salons. Ishi has combined these influences to create his own salon, Salon Ishi, in midtown Manhattan, New York City.
A humble and deeply spiritual man by nature, Ishi has devoted himself to the unique individualized attention he pays to each and every one of his clients. While always abreast of the mercurial tastes of fashion, Ishi maintains a strong belief in the importance of “classics". For Ishi, style is that which makes someone his or her most beautiful. According to Ishi, the most important beauty secret is enabling a person to feel good about him or herself. Understanding real beauty is both a personal and professional practice for Ishi.
