PATIENT, PERFECTING, AND PROFESSIONAL are just one of the few qualities you get at LEEKAJA BEAUTY SALON MALAYSIA (LKJ). 47 years ago, the most stylish and prestigious hair salon brand was established in South Korea by MADAM LEEEKAJA, a hairdresser who is more famous than K-pop stars. Branched out overseas with 130 shops in Korea, 15 in USA, 33 in China, 1 in Australia, and it is in great pleasure to have 1 in Malaysia. Allowing everyone to indulge in full Korean beauty experience without having to travel to Seoul. Outstanding customer service, definitely one to look forward to going back every time!
The salon is at a prime location – attached to an upscale Four seasons hotel known as the new Robinsons, Shoppe Mall. The salon has its distinctive interior design and a facade that attracts all the the intense social media people. One feels immediately welcome around this trendy-garden-cafe-like atmosphere, you get served refreshing beverages of your choice, and some delightful nibbles to go with it. Your personal stylist will talk to you and accommodate you accordingly.
Plus complimentary services are available: treatment gown (one time use only for hygienic purposes), personal slippers (if your feet feel sore from all the walking), mobile charger (whenever you need it), umbrella rentals (as we all know KL’s unpredictable weather, if it rains suddenly, fret not), WIFI service (unlimited), and an eye shield (protects you from all the chemicals used). Giving emphasis to a total customer satisfaction, LKJ Salon stands by their vision and promise to provide free retouching within 8 days for customers unsatisfied with their haircuts, colouring, perming and rebonding services. Everyone needs to be pampered and this is the place. Pricing you can check here on their website
Coming from a family of Salon Business back in the Philippines, I grew up having my hair treated regularly. You know what they say, “Hair is your crowning glory” and I’ve lived with that for 15 years now. Back in my day, my Aunt used to have me as our Salon Model for every new trend they want to launch; trying it on my hair before the actual customers. I’ve had highlights, bleaches, hair-reborn, toning, and perming at a very young age. Over the years, that made me widely knowledgeable in the hair pampering industry. As adventurous as I am, I would retouch my hair colour and change my hairstyle twice or 3 times a year.
I can tell if a stylist knows what he/she is doing by the way they handle hair – the pressure of drying, the contact of touching, the connection and the way they communicate to the customer. One of the major traits a stylist should have is a great listening skill to allow connection in order to provide satisfaction – an unsatisfied customer will never come back. Hair handling takes a lot of TRUST, and that is one of the secrets to a successful and outstanding Hair Salon.
There are hair stylists, and there’s PETER. He is a true master, lovely person to talk to – funny, centered, and thoughtful. Living abroad for 6 years now, I’ve been to many well-known salons and he is definitely one of the top choices I’ll have. He can look at any picture you show him, analyse, and nail it. He listens, airs on the side of caution and ensures I leave with exactly what I asked for. The entire experience from start to finish was superb, and absolutely will be coming back. I don’t think I’ve written a review in years, but when someone is that good, you just have to pay it forward.
I did a Korean Cream bath treatment, a quick and fuss-free technique that achieves smoothness and lightness of hair in a short period of time. One of the biggest hair secrets of K-pop stars. Makes your hair look luscious, voluminous, and shiny afterwards keeping your hair so chic and in place. He briefed me on care and answered my queries for future treatments. It was sleek, bouncing, and I literally felt so relaxed when I left. It was divinely different without it being overtly trendy.
LEEKAJA beauty also cater to men with highly experienced barbers, AMIN recently moved from Truefitt and Hill, took care of my colleagues’ hair. AMIN is definitely a barber with substance. Trying a new barber, can always be an apprehensive experience, however once the clippers were out, and he noticed the intricacy of the fading, he knew he was a master of his trade. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff in the barbers, I highly recommend dropping in for a cut or beard trim.
Moving to KL for more than a year has been tough in terms of finding the right salon and stylist. Finally, I’ve found my comfort, GO-TO Salon and expert stylist once or twice a month – who not only are great at what they do but can speak English Fluently makes you convey exactly what you want done to your hair. LKJ Salon provides some other different treatments such as Olaplex, LKJ Cinderella treatment and 5 steps intensive treatment.
Remember, a great treatment gets you a long way, saves you time preparing for your day to day activities. Needless to say, I can style my own hair but time is gold, if I can save 30 minutes of hair drying and an hour of ironing and styling (any hair enthusiasts can understand what I’m saying esp deeply bleached hairs like mine), why wouldn’t I spare myself that stress, and schedule an appointment at LEEKAJA Salon. I’ve had my hair blonde for 10 years now, switching it from Very light ash blonde and Ashy grey tones. I like to look my best without having to put heavy make ups on. So a proper hair care is a must to avoid fuzziness, split ends, and hair brittle. Coco Chanel once said, “I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then you never know maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be a pretty as possible for destiny.” When you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you work good – and that I believe applies in all things. LEEKAJA have over 200 outlets worldwide and are shortly to open their new outlet Walking On Sunshine in Mont Kiara very soon so stay tuned for that!
