Y.S.Park Professional tools were created by the genius hairstylist Young Soo Park from Japan. From the age of 16, Mr. Park knew he wanted to become a hairstylist, so he started his career in Tokyo in 1972. After learning the ropes, he ventured overseas and travelled to London, Paris and Vancouver learning as much as he could about the industry. In 1980, he moved back to Tokyo and opened his first of many salons, Y.S.Park, in Daikanyama, Tokyo.
While working at the salon, Mr Park would continuously think of designs for the products and tools he used each and everyday and most importantly, how they could be improved. In 1987 Y.S.PARK PROFESSIONAL was established. Although Mr. Park is the designer of all Y.S.Park products, he continues to cut and style hair in his salons at least twice a week. He uses this time to test out new designs and improve existing designs, creating some of the best and most innovative tools in the beauty industry today. From the most stylish combs with their signature look, to the strongest and sexiest clips, or the futuristic and state of the art brushes, which assist with the ultimate blowdry in less time.
Each product has been meticulously designed and follows Mr. Park’s philosophy of “one hand creates, while the other hand builds”. Meaning your right hand cuts or “builds” the haircut with scissors, while your left hand styles or “creates” with the comb or brush.
