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 opend 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.

Nagi Hair’s owner Kei is 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.

Over the course of her over 10 years of experience, her natural curiosity led her to expand her career outside of the salon, and has been honored to work for photoshoots, film, and New York fashion week.

In continuing to broaden her experience, she traveled across the country spending two years in San Francisco working at one of the top Hair Salons, Population. This opportunity helped to expand her knowledge by learning new color techniques and styles.

Now back in New York City she is inspired and confident in her vision. Denise is excited to help you unlock your potential and fall in love with your most beautiful self.
