But where does a Japanese dude get a haircut in Manila? He goes to Natural Hype.
Opened last November 2011 by hairstlist/DJ/bartender Fumio Ohnishi, Natural Hype is tucked inside the second floor of the Blue Sapphire Building in Bonifacio Global City, right next door to fine dining restaurant La Girolle.

Just wanted to add a data point on Japanese hair stylists. I went in for a haircut with Chiyo at Sei Salon about a month ago. I requested for fewer layers since my hair is on the thin side and she looked at me as if I insulted her and she launched into the most hostile commentary I have ever heard from a hair stylist. She was really rude. I then asked for her suggestion and she just shook her head. If my hair was not sogging wet from shampoo, I would have walked out immediately. That was no way… Read more »

After coming back from Osaka, Chiyo is booked at least until after the 27th. On her and your recommendation, my husband and I went to Fumi at Natural Hype to get our haircuts. He’s good, Cecile. Thanks for recommending him. 🙂

Hi Ms. C! Called them from the number posted here up but it’s the wrong number.. =)
Checked out their Facebook and the right number is 4226 instead of 4266.
