Olaplex Treatment & A Subtle Balayage From Japanese Hair Salon, Sozo Hair Design

Neatly tucked into the buzzing Wyndham Street, Sozo Hair Design provides a myriad of bespoke hair services ranging from cut, colour and blow drys to manicure/pedicure and eyelash extensions. Founded by Yoko Lane, a Tokyo-born hairstylist who perfected her craft at one of Tokyo’s best hairdressing schools, followed by a few stints with the top salons in Sydney and Hong Kong, Yoko opened Sozo in January 2013. Yoko and her exceptional team of stylists combine first class services with a personal touch. Shannon Dawson arrived at the salon for a Balayage and restorative Olaplex treatment.

A subtle retouch


After my loyal stylist left Hong Kong over a year ago, I struggled to find another salon that could tailor to my fine, frizz-prone tresses. As a self-proclaimed “wash and wear” kind of girl, I always opt for styles that require low maintenance and luckily for me, Sozo specialise in Balayage treatment which is perfect for those who, like me, prefer little to no upkeep.
