Massato's story began in 1975. Arriving in Japan, his hairdressing qualification in hand, he decided to conquer Paris, the fashion capital of the world. Young and talented, he soon found himself in studios with top photographers. For twenty years, he has been cutting and styling the hair of the most beautiful top models for the biggest magazines, not to mention fashion shows. Massato opened his first salon in Paris in 1993. The fashion world left him with an ongoing curiosity for trends and the ability to get an idea of new trends in just a glance — a natural and talented fashion genius. These two influences, Oriental and Western, can be seen in his approach, his concept of hairdressing and his technique.
