【Akihabara】You will be your favorite anime character! "Off-Kai!!" a hair salon for "Otaku" anime fans!

October 10, 2019
If you are anime or manga lover, have you ever thought that you want to make your favorite character's hairstyle? !
But have you ever been worried about how you can explain to the hair salon?

There is an awesome hair salon that I would recommend to those who like anime and manga.
The name is a hairsalon for otaku "OFF-KAi!!"
They will make your hair look like the character of your favorite anime, manga and game!

At once we went to experience it.
The writer's longing anime character in charge of this time is "Rei Ayanami" from "Neon Genesis Evangelion"! It is a popular character besides anime fans.

Let's see how is it done? !

OFF-KAi is located in Akihabara which the playground of the otaku.

For fans who love subculture such as anime, manga and games everything they need is in Akihabara! Akihabara is a well-known subculture sanctuary.
Many anime fans and game fans from overseas will come to Akihabara.

Not far from Akihabara Station (though Suehirocho station on the Ginza subway line is the absolute closest rail stop) you'll find stylish wooden door with anime character!!

Wow!!
Please tell us the background of the establishment of the store.

The reason is that it would be nice if there was an anime song, there were manga and anime magazines, and there was a beauty salon where the staff talking about anime and manga while they hair cut for the custometer.

Are you already a hairdresser when you had that concept?

Yes, I was. In 2016, we opened “OFF-KAI !!” in Akihabara. After that, it opened Ikebukuro branch and Osaka.

You made your dream come true!
By the way, what kind of hairstyles do customers order?

It seems that there are many orders for the same fancy hairstyle as the character, but there are more regular orders.
I think that many customers put their favorite character color before they go to the anime event.The reason for visiting the store is anime, but after that, they became loyal customer.

I see.. I thought that there were many orders for fancy hairstyles.
What was the most memorable customer?

While I were lined up at an anime festival, one of my customer was also lined up next to me and greeted.I was surprised but I was so glad
And foreign parent-child who wanted a "super Saiyan blue" hairstyle for 「Dragon Ball」 came here.
But I said you have to bleach about 3 times to get that color ... I presented the amount of the bleaching fee. Then they were so surprise and they gave up.
