TOKYO, May 31, 2019 — Hammock Hair Salon COCONA, 2 minutes walk from Koenji (*1) station in Tokyo, attracts many customers in Japan. As a hair salon introducing hammocks for styling customers’ hair for the first time in the world, COCONA recommends to tourists to try high-quality services on Hammocks.
COCONA is located 2 minutes walk from Koenji station in Tokyo. Whenever customers visit the salon, they are astonished by the vast amount of hammocks hung from the ceiling. At COCONA, customers get their hair styled (e.g. cut, shampoo and head spa) on hammocks, which are specially designed for cutting, coloring and shampooing hair. One part of the hammock, where customers sit back and place their heads, is woven to be wide open, and hammocks are hung in a special way to reduce the swinging motion; that’s why COCONA’s hair stylists can concentrate on their work without any problems.
At regular hair salons, some customers tend to be nervous, overwhelmed by the clinical atmosphere with hard chairs. However customers can relax the most while their hair gets styled on hammocks at COCONA. Since the hair salon opened in February 2017, COCONA has attracted Japanese media (*2) and became famous as the innovative and popular hair salon in Japan. Positive reviews praising that many customers on hammocks drift off to sleep easily has spread, and COCONA is well known as the hair salon where customers can relax while getting hair styled on hammocks.
Most customers visit COCONA for getting hair styled, but some of them visit just to relax on hammocks. COCONA’s owner and hair stylist, Yuji Tsunogai offers high-quality hair styling service for every customer of all demographics, who has problems about hair.
Recently, more and more customers from abroad visit COCONA and enjoy receiving services on hammocks. A French guide book named “Soul of Tokyo” introduces COCONA. Experiencing the hammock-featured hair styling services and checking the town “Koenji” make trips even better than ever.
