Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

-Japanese Hair Straightening-

1) What is a Japanese hair straightening?

Japanese hair straightening is a thermal reconditioning treatment technique that gives you glossy, smooth, shiny, straight hair permanently. You only need a touch-up on the re-growth part of the hair after about 6 months.


2) What is different between a Japanese hair straightening and a relaxer?

Unfortunately, a relaxer does not straighten the hair very well. It uses chemical ingredients that leave the hair dry, brittle and unhealthy. On the other hands a Japanese hair straightening gives you soft, silky, straight and healthier hair that lasts longer than any other straight perm techniques out there in the market.​


3) Does it work on kinky hair as well?

Yes, a Japanese hair straightening works on kinky hair. In fact, it works on every hair type except for the hair that has been bleached. Unfortunately, the solution won't work on the bleached hair. We offer a free pretest to our customers to see if the hair is suitable for the treatment, and the test only takes 2 minutes. Visit us for a free consultation.


4) Will it stay straight after a wash?

Yes, after a wash, the hair goes back to straight. The style stays the same until it grows out.


5) How long is the process?

Normally the whole process takes about 2.5 to 3 hours; however it could take longer depending on hair length and density.


6) How much is a Japanese hair straightening?

Japanese hair straightening starts from $180+up, depending on the length, the texture, and the density of the hair. We do advise to avoid from a cheap Japanese hair straightening offered by other hair salons. This treatment is one of the most difficult procedures to perform. You certainly don't want to leave your hair to an inexperienced hairstylist who can bring a permanent change to your hair.


7) Does it damage my hair?

Unfortunately, perming or coloring your hair inevitably leaves some damage on your hair. The point is though how to obtain the hairstyle you want with as little damage as possible. We can achieve this by high level of experience and skills of our hairstylists and the best-quality Japanese perm solution. Moreover, we make sure to add lots of nutrition to the hair during the perm process. At the end of Japanese hair straightening treatment, you will have the straight hair that feels softer, smoother, and shinier.​

-Digital Perm-

1) What is a digital perm?

A digital perm is a perm that uses a more gentle solution and hot rods with the temperature regulated by a machine with a digital display. Hairstylists also call it a "hot perm." Because a digital perm thermally reconditions the hair, the hair looks softer, smoother and shinier after the treatment is completed. Styling is very easy as one can revive a curl just by curling it with one's finger, and the style lasts about 6 months to a year.


2) How long is the process?

Normally the whole process takes about 2.5 to 3 hours; however it could take longer depending on hair length and density.


3) Does it work on every hair type?

A digital perm works on every hair type except for the hair that has been bleached. Unfortunately, the solution won't work on the bleached hair. We offer a free pretest to our customers to see if the hair is suitable for a digital perm, and the test only takes 2 minutes. Visit us for a free consultation.


4) What is different between a digital perm and a regular perm?

The biggest difference is the shape and the texture of the wave created by the digital process. A regular perm makes the wave most prominent when the hair is wet and loose when it is dry. So it is necessary to use hair wax or gel to keep the curls. A digital perm is exactly opposite as it makes the wave most prominent when the hair is dry and loose when it is wet. Thus you can create the dry and curly look of the curl iron by just air drying it. This is one of beauties of a digital perm: low-maintenance.​​
