We cater specifically to clients looking for a different style of salon experience. Thai Touch provides hairdressing, waxing and Thai massage services and is owned and managed by Sawai, a top hair stylist with 20+ years’ experience in hairdressing and a hair colouring expert.

Having researched the many hair colour / care products available to professional salons, Keune was chosen. Keune established in Amsterdam in 1922 has been an innovator in the hair care business for over 90 years. The were the first to develop the “Perm” formula in 1923 and since then introduced many innovations, aerosol hair spray, hair colour with unique formula including silk protein and UV protection, organic hair colour using plant extracts and essential oils. Keune is still run by the Keune family (3rd Generation in the business) and have not sold out to the mega bands, instead they are concentrating on making exceptional hair care products that will help you look your best.

Keune is one of the premium hair care brands in Europe delivering results you can see in your hair not just promises you see in a magazine. We are proud to use and recommend Keune and we are confident that you will be a convert to Keune too when you use their hair care products.

The choice of wax for Thai Touch was easy. While there are only a handful of premium waxes in the world Lycon the premium wax from Australia is our favourite. Lycon was chosen because it’s the performance of the wax and customer experience that matters. Do you agree? Sawai’s skill coupled with Lycon wax superior performance in removing fine and coarse hair at low temperature application almost guarantees you Waxing Without the Ouch!

The products used in our massage treatments are from Earth Factory in Thailand. Earth Factory has a reputation for supplying many of Thailand’s top spas with soaps, body scrubs, massage oils and body wraps. They use the finest ingredients sourced locally to make some of the best spa products available in Thailand.

Sawai started her hairdressing career more than 20 years ago working for a Japanese hairdresser in Silom Road located in the heart of Bangkok’s commercial district. The Japanese known for attention to detail and Thailand for its service culture combined to make this hairdressers one of the best in the district. An ideal training ground and work experience for Sawai who worked there to become their senior stylist specialising in hair colour using Schwarzkopf products.

Not satisfied with working for someone else Sawai opened her own salon. Here she continued the continuous training habit for her staff and herself. Constantly undergoing training in latest hair care trends and techniques from L’oreal and Schwarzkopf to ensure that customers were provided with the best and the most recent hair care products and services.

Like many salons in Thailand, Sawai’s salon offered Thai Massage treatments. She received her training in traditional Thai massage from the world-famous Wat Po Thai Traditional Medical and Massage School. Sawai is also trained and experienced in providing Advanced Thai Medical Massage Therapy, Oil Massage and Aromatherapy and Massage for Women’s Healthcare.

Removing unwanted body hair using warm wax is another service that Sawai’s salon offered. They used one of the top Australian brands “Lycon”. All training on intimate waxing was provided by Lycon’s distributor in Thailand.
