HEAD & TOES : Creation, Contradiction, Collaboration

Last Friday I visited the new Rikyu hair salon at Sukhumvit 24 for a haircut with my favourite Yohji. After a year of long hair It just happened that I just woke up and decided to give my neck’s back some fresh air breathe. Lucky enough, HEAD & TOE , the new notion of hair and feet interpreted by Rikyu and Muzina, was exhibiting on the 2nd floor. So yes I sneaked in “Bringing hair close to the toes, two elements farthest away from each other on the human body… ” is their concept behind the exhibition. With 15 pairs of shoes designed by MUZINA, the hair stylists of Rikyu portray an image of its characters, imagining their hair, persona and style. It is a creative visual expression reflecting the character of the shoes using hair, challenging a common belief that head and toe should not be together. Their unique works realized by two merging notions, which are “ a tool for being yourself ” by MUZINA and “ the possibility of hair ” by RIKYU, could give you a light …

A Serene Escape at Pañpuri Organic Spa

Last week I was invited by Pañpuri to experience the latest two new organic body treatments at Pañpuri  Organic  Spa, a one-of-a-kind haven in the heart of Bangkok. Not to be exaggerated, but that was probably my most unforgettable spa experience in life, of course in a good way. Since my first step, an elegant environment, friendly staffs, and completely private treatment rooms offered the sense of a serenity and luxury. The therapist asked me to complete my profile and some pre-treatment questions, which give her an insight to my problems and needs.

A Brand new day with Boy Rikyu BKK

Dear diary, It’s the long-weekend Sunday morning! My idea of long weekend is that it is perfect for giving your tiresome self some nice treats, isn’t it? While everybody else might go out and fight for his/her space on the road towards the countryside, I chose to refresh myself with good places nearby instead. I used to cut my hair short with Yoji at BOY Rikyu Siam Square,but the place I’m taking you today is their another branch at 49 Terrace, Sukhumvit 49. “Rikyu by Boy Tokyo”, is a famous hair salon from Tokyo that does not only offer salon work, they are also interested in art, fashion and lifestyle of Thai-Japanese cross culture. “We hope that our customers feel happier and start their brand new day with their new hair style.” is the motto they keep at work.
