We offer many options for all hair types for straightening and smoothing:

Japanese straightening is a popular way of permanently straightening wavy, coarse or curly hair, that originated in Japan in the 1990’s. The service is in some ways similar to a perm, though it involves the use of a flat iron as well.

Our Smoothing Treatment
 (either L'Oreal or Cezanne) adds smoothness and shine to hair, without completely removing curly or wavy textures. Cezanne is semi-permanent and the L'Oreal smoothing is a permanent treatment, gentler on the hair and can also involves the use of a flat iron or steam pod. We recommend the L'Oreal treatment for natural hair and the Cezanne for coloured or compromised hair.

Japanese Straightening is ideal for those with loose curls or wavy hair who are tired of flat ironing their hair every day.

The Smoothing treatments work on all hair types and lasts up to 4-6 months on average. 

Japanese straightening and the Smoothing treatment usually take 2.5-3 hours, depending on hair length, thickness and condition.
