The salon began its roots in Tokyo, Japan in the year 2001.  Not long after, the founder, Daisuke Hamaguchi decided to expand the business in Malaysia. The main being is because of it an ideal place of multiculturalism with people of different fashion and culture sense. Deeply intrigued by these factors, he chose Kuala Lumpur as the first spot to launch his successful brand. 

Number 76 Hair Salon opened its door in Kuala Lumpur in 2012. The KL branch carries the same concept and principles to its big Japanese brother. In just a few short years, the salon now has a total of five branches within two states across Malaysia. The reason for the massive success is the people at Number76! These people will make you smile and sparkle the brightest not just on Valentine’s Day but every day.

The salon has few branches at various locations around KL like Midvalley, Paradigm Mall Bangsar, Publika and Tribeca. We decided to visit the Bangsar branch since its located closest to our office. Oh, before going to any of their salons make sure to make bookings earlier online. This can help you avoid the long waiting as the salon is pretty busy! The whole booking process is super fast and smooth. You just need to create an account, select the branch you wanna go and waa-laa your appointment is booked!

The Bangsar branch lies in the heart of the bustling Telawi road. The contemporary and cosy atmosphere truly makes the salon a perfect starting point to begin your hair transformation journey. Every corner of the salon is picturesque and is super cool. Did we mention, Number 76 is ranked as one of the top five hair salons in Malaysia?! You can see all of the awards proudly featured on the brick walls of the salon. The salon even won the Harpers Bazaar Malaysia Hair Awards in 2019 for its amazing service!

After a few rounds, we finally manage to find parking in Bangsar! Upon arriving we were greeted by the receptionist. She was super friendly and requested us to have a seat while she went to inform the hairstylist. Few short minutes later, the hairstylist came to us and introduced himself. He chatted with us for a bit before proceeding to the treatment. Oh, did we mention?! We were offered a menu to select drinks and given biscuits for free while we were waiting! That’s A+ customer service!

Services At Number 76 Hair Salon.

Although Number 76 Hair Salon is best known for its hair colour services, the salon doesn’t just rest its laurels. The stylists here keep themselves updated with all the right knowledge and skill to you the best finish ever! Apart from hair colouring, the salon also provides other trendy hair services such as perms, haircuts and even scalp treatment. Scalp treatment, in fact, has always been a major part of Number 76 policy. 

We went in for the highest graded hair colour service and haircut. Prior to the treatment, the hairstylist checked the condition of our hair. He suggested us to go for non-bleach hair colour as it won’t damage the hair. We took the expert advice and went for subtle natural brown shade and short trim. The whole process took nearly four hours and we can gladly say the stylist did exactly what we wanted. We absolutely love the end result! It is was really worth the time and money.
