A graduate of the prestigious Shiseido Beauty Academy of Japan, Kanako brings with her 12 years of experience from salons in trendy Tokyo, Sydney CBD and Neutral Bay.

Bay Road Hair Studio has been servicing Sydney since its establishment back in 1935.
It is now owned and operated by Kanako Shimbara, who fell in love with the idea of running an International hair studio in the beautiful inner harbour suburb of Waverton. The exclusiveness and tranquility of the location is irresistible - it's a good place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city without having to go far (5kms from Sydney CBD and right next to North Sydney).
The salon has been architect designed and renovated, turning it into one of the most exclusive boutique hair and nail salons in Sydney's Lower North Shore.
Yoshi the Dog
It's official... By popular demand, Yoshi now comes into the salon on most days. He's a Cavoodle who knows as a few tricks (ask him about the Kangaroo) and is super adorable. He's so well behaved that he's now starting to get booking requests :D
