"We designed it to create a relaxing Zen atmosphere," said Siri.
You immediately sense peacefulness and the elements of feng shui when you walk through the door. The chairs face a garden of royal palms with flowering ginger. A Buddha water fountain surrounded with bamboo and orchids adds to the salon's tranquility.
Yet the 125-gallon freshwater aquarium is the indisputable attraction. Filled with an extraordinary collection of fish--including oscars, cichlids, Jack Dempseys, freshwater bala sharks, shipwrecks and others--the tank delights all of Siri's clients.
"This salon is my dream come true," said Siri. "I worked very hard for many years and I am so thankful to have such a beautiful hair salon."
Professionally trained and licensed in Thailand and Hawai'i, Siri has over 10 years of experience in the hair industry. She regularly styles hair for local fashion shows and photo shoots, and has won numerous awards.
"A great haircut is an art," said Siri, whose continuing education on industry styles keeps her well-versed on new trends, as well as the classic styles.
Kihei resident Manny Go was a customer of Siri's when she worked at Supercuts.
"She is the only one who can get my haircut right," said Go. "And, I like kicking back in the salon's remote-controlled adjustable shampoo station that allows my legs to be up or down," he said.
New client Sue Monroe from Wailuku Heights noticed Siri's salon when passing by one day.
"I admired the combined living and working space at Kai Ani Village," said Monroe. "When I walked into the salon, I was so impressed by its ambience."
"I am extremely nervous about having my hair cut," she said. "Siri soothes haircut anxiety and knows what she is doing. I have been back a few times now and highly recommend her."
According to Siri, a large number of clients have been coming in for the CHI brand ammonia-free color and highlights she offers to men and women.
"While ammonia color can leave your hair feeling dry and damaged, ammonia-free leaves your hair feeling healthy, shiny and well-conditioned," said Siri.
Some other benefits of ammonia-free color include less scalp irritation and a much more pleasant fragrance, which is healthier for both the client and the stylist.
Siri's Hair Designs carries the full line of CHI products.
In a world where hair care has gotten confusing and cluttered, Siri has carefully chosen the supplies she uses and sells. It's a 10 and Sexy Girl hair products are other favorite brands at her salon.
"These multi-purpose product lines were designed to give stylists and clients better performance," said Siri, who shares expert tips to help you style your hair at home.
"I like to change my hair style quite often," said Kihei resident and client Elizabeth Walker. "Siri knows exactly what to do to straighten or curl my hair and which products will help me create the style myself. She's the best and she's so nice!"
The Crew for Men brand addresses unique hair and lifestyle needs for men's grooming.
"I am committed to showing my male clients new ways of incorporating style into their lives through great haircuts and first-rate products," Siri said.
A favorite service for men and women at Siri's Hair Designs is a steam and repair treatment using her state-of-the-art hair processor. The treatment is for dry, damaged or colored hair and split ends.
"I use a Deep Miracle hair mask by It's a 10 that rehydrates the hair, restoring and enhancing its natural body," Siri said.
Most importantly, children enjoy coming to the salon for haircuts.
