The magazine “CYAN” has continued to focus on hair salons and the hair stylists who work there since the magazine was first published. The people who visit the salon as users are influenced by the personas proposed by various branded salons, pay for the technology and products, and come into contact with the new value they receive from the hair stylists, creating new standards of behavior. We believed that this simple yet powerful structure was the ideal future retail store. Positioning hair salons as a magazine-like community, CYAN proposes the next generation of salons while collaborating with the fashion and cosmetics industries, as well as the food and beverage and PR industries.
[Preparing to expand business not only in Japan but also in Southeast Asia] “CYAN” has gained highly engaged fans with its unique worldview, including the development of global fashion and lifestyle items with an eye on Asia, art gallery management, advertising planning and production, and influencer PR business. That’s why we will continue to expand our communication services to suit the new era.
