This August, Maison de Julietta opened their lolita salon at LaForet Harajuku. Instead of spending an inordinate amount of money on buying a complete outfit, the salon offers a service where you get dressed up and have professional photos shot at their in-shop studio which features an oh so sweet Alice in Wonderland theme.
Maison de Julietta offers about 30 outfits and accessories from famous Lolita brands like Baby, the Stars Shine Bright, Alice and the Pirates, Angelic Pretty, and Metamorphose temps de fille. Combined with their hair and make-up service, this makes you look picture perfect.
When I visited during the opening, famous Lolita model Misako Aoki was there to welcome us, as well as some members of Waseda University’s Gothic & Lolita & Punk no Kai. I had planned to return to do an interview, but other obligations interfered. So, instead of putting off posting these images any longer, here they are without the planned interview.
Want to transform yourself into the perfect Lolita? Make reservations by phone at 03-6434-5464. Opening hours are 11:00～20:00. Rates start from around 10,000 yen (US$100) for a full makeover, which includes photos, tea and cookies.
