About May

With over 20 years as a stylist in the international hair care industry, Mayumi “May” Sappington offers unique Japanese services to her clients. Trained at an early age in her mother’s salon in Japan about the innovative Belle Jouvence products and procedures for perms and treatments, May’s passion for hair care has grown into an expertise. In fact, she is one of just two stylists in the U.S. who offers these services and will travel nationally to meet her clients.

Specializing in hair straightening and permanent body waves, May combines hair care with inner health and healing work resulting in not only healthier hair, but a healthier body and inner life. Utilizing the Belle Jouvence methods and products (lower pH levels and no ammonia), May’s work restores the hair and detoxifies the blood stream resulting in clearer, smoother skin.

May has an instinctive ability to assess exactly what her clients need to give them silky, healthy hair. For women who have severely damaged hair, it’s hard to find a stylist who can handle the challenge. With May, they get clear, immediate results. With healthier, conditioned, silky hair, the client’s self-esteem soars and their inner health improves. May always takes the time to explain the process to her clients and answer any questions or concerns they may have. She continues to support them even after the treatment.

The beauty & inner health philosophy is revolutionary for the United States. May embodies this philosophy and her clients reap the benefits.  In 2009, May extended this philosophy into the development of her new business and product line, Caviam, for which she carries exclusive wholesale and retail distribution rights.
