Should You Bring The Kitchen Sink?

CONTRIBUTED BY KAHO

An Okinawa Hai reader has a question about where to go for spray tans and hair extensions:

Hi there- do you know or could you find out somehow if there are any places on the island that do the spray
tan and also hair extensions… I know I sound like a barbie but I have my wedding coming up and I am not
going back to the states before hand so I need to do these things here in Oki… I appreciate any help!!!!

Can anyone help her out?

  1. Does Mora’s do the sew-in beaded extensions or the braided ones? How much do they charge? I really want to get extensions but want to make sure they are a reputable place that will do a good job and make it look natural. 🙂

  2. Hi, I just discovered a small hair and wig store off 58 by Futenma. It’s called “Mora’s Extension” and they have all types of hair and some fun accessories for sale. They also offer hair services, like wig fittings and putting in hair extensions. I don’t think much English is spoken there but I was able to get some questions answered by one of the girls working there. The prices are very reasonable and I actually made an appt. to go back to get some extensions put in. I can’t remember exactly what street it’s on but it’s at the corner by a busy intersection off 58, right after you see the large Futenma Antique mall. Parking was very tricky though, you have to park right in front of the store and it’s really tight. So be careful. Here is the phone #098-897-7806. Hope that helped!

    • Mora’s is fantastic. They have tons of hair and colors, even 20+ shades of blond. Their English isn’t great, but good enough to get by. I had no problem understanding what they were telling me and what they were asking. They can put in the extensions right there; there is a small “shop” area in the back. I have multi-tonal blond hair and they were able to easily blend 3 different colors of hair for the extensions to match my hair perfectly. The shop is a little hard to get to if you try to get there from 58 because it is on the very corner of 81 and is set back from the road and not really acessible from the 58 side. It is much easier to come down the hill from 81 (from KGate 2 or Foster Legion gate turn right on 330 and stay straight when it turns into 81) when you see the 58 intersection sign, there is a small shortcut road on the left that you verge onto at a light. When you get to the bottom of the hilll Mora’s in directly on your left. Just pull onto the sidewalk – that is their parking 🙂 Hope this is helpful – I’ll definitely go again!!

  6. I have socap hair extensions and I am moving in 2 months. I need a hairdresser that can remove them when the time comes and possibly redo them in the future.
    Does anybody know where to go?

  7. How long do the spray on tans last? I usually have a wonderful tan but w/ just having baby #3 don’t have the “beach body” back yet and don’t want to scare anyone by laying out.

  8. Hi there, I have a hairdresser that does do hair extensions and spray tanning amongst other beauty treatments. She lives on Kinser and does this out of her house. She used to work at the Foster Beauty Salon and she is FABULOUS!! Here is her contact info and her website…
