Yoshi Shiraki started his hair styling career in London, England over 20 years ago where he studied under the most prestigious hair school in the world at that time, “The London, Vidal Sassoon Academy”.
After graduating from “The London Vidal Sassoon Academy”, Yoshi than relocated back to the States to New York City where he worked for the 5th avenue Vidal Sassoon salon located in the heart of some of this country’s most expensive and high end shopping with neighboring businesses such as Gucci, Tiffany’s, Prada, Saks 5th ave, Bergdorf & Goodman, Barney’s, Henry Bendels, etc…
During Yoshi’s career, he accumulated an elite clientele of rich and famous individuals that he would service in the salon, at their home, or place of business. On several occasions a small group of Yoshi’s clients would fly him to Los Angeles or Las Vegas from New York City to cut their hair.
Yoshi also loves educating other stylists as he has an absolute passion for teaching. Yoshi has traveled the world educating stylists from New York City to Baltimore to Salt Lake City, to London and Tokyo to name a few places. One of Yoshi’s most memorable teaching experience is when one of Japan’s largest salon companies hired Yoshi and flew him to Tokyo and housed him for over 3 months while Yoshi performed seminars and “one on one” classes for hundreds of their employees.
