Shiseido Beauty Academy was established in 1959 to educate talented young beauticians.
Since then, it has become an educational institution for students aspiring to be hair stylists, hair and makeup artists, beauty consultants, nail artists, or bridal stylists.
In 2014, it was named the “Best World Academy” by Intercoiffure Mondial, an association of the world's most prominent beauticians.
Shiseido has seen its popularity and business grow ever since it opened its first salon in 1922. The company now operates 32 salons throughout Japan, with 700 stylists and their support staffs.
From being the first to introduce cold perm services in Japan to popularizing new hair styles, Shiseido Beauty Salon has worked hard to keep innovating and stay ahead of the times.
