Nagi Hair opened in Nolita-Soho in 2016. Owner Kei came to the US in 2008 after working in Tokyo seven years, and following a six-year stint at Warren Tricomi Salon, he opened his own salon.

At Nagi Hair, we offer made-to-order styles that best complement each custmer’s individual bone structure and hair type.

At Nagi Hair, not only do we put careful thought into hairstyles, but we also choose specific tools and products to best accommodate different hair types.

We always on the lookout for products that do the best things for hair. If a new product looks promising, he goes to Japan to see for himself and buys only the best to bring back for use at the New York salon. 

As a result, there are some products and tools that are found only at a few salons in Japan and at Nagi Hair in NYC.

We use the newest tools and products from Japan that will add moisture and shine to your hair.

Beautiful, healthy hair has a way of breeding an inner confidence which can lead to a forward-looking,positive mindset and an outer glow.

Here at Nagi we consider it our mission to work with your hair in a way that will help bring sparkle and shine to other areas of your life.

Senior stylist YURIKO


I have experience working in Japan for 13 years, and I awarded a lot of competitions.

When I think about haircuts for my customers, I take into account things like their lifestyle and the clothes they wear to help choose a cut that will best suit them and flatter their bone structure. Short haircuts that show off facial shape are my specialty.

I specialize in cutting and styling coarse Asian hair in a way that looks and feels soft and natural like Caucasian hair.

If you are wanting a drastic style change and need a great cut, leave it to me!

I also have experience in hair care and have worked in Japan as a head spa massage therapist. If you are looking for healthy hair that begins with your scalp, please come see me.

Hope to see you soon!
