Mami's Beauty Salon will be rated in terms of the following four criteria : Hygiene and Cleanliness, Skill, Time/ Cost Ratio and Location on a scale from 1 to 5. (1 being the worst and 5 being the best.) These scores will be added together and converted into a score out of 100. 

Hygiene/Cleanliness

A mask was used by my hairdresser, the shop wasn't covered in hair. However, because I was the first person to arrive at the shop I witnessed basic dusting of old hair on the chair I was about to sit on. I give Mami's Beauty Salon a 3.7/5 for hygiene and cleanliness.

Skill

I can honestly say that Mami is incredibly skilled, her hand felt very light in my hair. I was falling asleep as she was doing my hair. And I'm VERY tender-headed. I haven't had anyone else's hand in my hair for over 8 months. She would be perfect for anyone who is tender headed or customers who are children. For this reason, I give Mami's Beauty Salon a 4/5 for skill.

Location

Mami's Beauty Hair Salon is only a 4 minute walk from Minami-rinkan station on the Odakyu-Enoshima Line.
The hair salon is in a great location, near shopping streets and a Family Mart, if you ever need to go to get cash out. I give Mami's Beauty Salon a 4/5 for location.

Cost/Time Ratio

The price of my hairstyle was 10,000, which I believed to be moderately expensive. 10,000 is equivalent to roughly Ā£75 and $97. Price is pretty subjective as I'm considering the fact I could get this same hairstyle in London for Ā£40, which is almost half the price I paid. It took 5 hours for my hair to be completed including it being straightened. I am used to fast braiders who finish my hair in 2 hours (3 hours if my hair is being blown out and straightened.) But this is Japan, finding that level of speed/skill is hard, finding a decent braiders is hard. So taking this all into account, I give Mami's Beauty Salon a 3.5/5 for cost/time.

The Results are in! Drumroll, Please!!!! šŸ„ šŸ„ šŸ„

76/100

Overall, I would say Mami's Beauty Hair Salon is worth visiting for a braided hair style, I cannot speak about other hair styles or services. I would definitely recommend people to go to this hair salon if you are looking for one or live in Kanagawa. It is very easy to get there. Mami is kind, friendly and above all has THE LIGHTEST HANDS. She basically has angel hands! My only concern was they fact my appointment was at schedule for between 11:00 and 11:30am and the hairdresser didn't arrive until 12pm. However I didn't arrive myself until 11:35 (I missed the train), so I only waited 25 minutes.

DISCLAIMER: The owner/hairdresser was unaware I was going to review her shop (if she did I think she wouldn't have been late for my appointment) and I paid the full amount as discussed prior to arrival.
