Lounge Hair Salon Downtown Vancouver


We want to help make it easier for you to decide which texture service is best for you with the help of expert writers.

 They explain the difference between the types of services available and what we provide at The Lounge from straightening services to perms and everything in between. All of our staff do most services but Mari is our texture expert and is happy to assist you and your stylist make the best decision if you like.




Do you wish you had smooth, silky hair? Without wrestling with a blow-dryer? In any weather? Here’s what it takes:

If you want something that lasts until your hair grows out…
…thermal reconditioning (also called Japanese straightening) is best for bulky, loose to medium—but not kinky—curls.

The hair is saturated with a solution containing a chemical that breaks the bonds that give each strand its shape; it is then rinsed, blow-dried, and meticulously flatironed. Once a neutralizer is applied, the hair is locked into this new, straight configuration.

The process can take up to eight hours the first time (depending on length and thickness); touch-ups require three to four hours.

For three days after the treatment, you can’t get your hair wet or do anything kink inducing (like wear a ponytail), and while your hair will now be sleek and shiny (even after air-drying), you’re left with one styling option: bone-straight. Even curling irons or hot rollers won’t restore volume or wave.

Just like contouring, strobing, and ombre highlights, keratin treatments are yet another topic that stays trending in the beauty world, and if one of your BFFs has ever tried it out, chances are, she has yet to shut up about the magic it worked on her hair. If blowing out your strands feels more like playing tug-of-war, you could benefit from its smoothing results, though the variety of in-salon and at-home versions can make the world of keratin slightly harder to navigate. That’s why we asked hairstylist Abraham Sprinkle to give us a crash-course on everything you need to know before getting the treatment, and most importantly, how to keep it intact long after your salon appointment. First things first, determine if your hair type is right for the service—curly and frizzy textures will see the most benefits, whereas fine, straight strands should avoid it altogether.

That being said, what does a keratin treatment actually do? “Keratin treatments fill in the porosity of your hair, as overly-porous hair causes tangles, frizz, and breakage,” Sprinkle explains. “Your hair is made up of keratin, so the treatment is putting the protein back into the hair, which is often lost due to age and chemical services.”

What is a Keratin Treatment? A keratin treatment is a great way to save time and prevent frizzy, fuzzy hair in high humidity with little to no effort.

To help help the most of your Keratin Treatment

  • use sulphate free shampoos and conditioners
  • try stay out of salt and chlorine water. If you think you will get your hair wet put a cap on while taking a dip
  • get the treatment done a few days before you get on the plane, allowing the treatment to “settle in”.



Sometimes I wish I could just snap my fingers and my hair would be done. Julianne Hough accomplished that by getting a perm that will give her semi-permanent effortlessly cool beach waves. She revealed the news via Instagram with a series of snaps and videos showing off her textured mane.

The deed was done at LA salon Nine Zero One, headed by celebrity stylist Riawna Capri. And the hero product used was Olaplex, which strengthens overprocessed hair (like Julianne’s very blond hair), allowing it be permed on top of being bleached.

Keep reading to see how it looks and learn more about Olaplex here. And if you don’t want to commit to a perm but still want to get beach waves, try one of these sea-salt hair sprays for an instant effect.

Although we do not provide relaxing services at The Lounge we wanted you to know what these services are.

Hair relaxers can be a bit of a tricky subject. A lot of people simply don’t know what they are or what they really do to your hair, which makes it hard to determine if getting one is right for you.

As someone who’s been getting my hair relaxed for more than half of my life, I have to admit that even I have a hard time explaining the facts when friends ask why I do it. Sometimes they burn a little, and other times they’re a total breeze, but one thing’s for sure — my hair looks the way I want it to when I get one…

    Too many people have no knowledge of the fact that fast growth shampoos (of course with no sulfates, no parabens or DEA) are a thing. We all can now attain longer hair and experience more possibilities. Definitely worth searching.

    Whether you’re exploring hair loss, hair damage, preventing skin disorders, hair growth, hair health more often than not, the same thoughts actualize.

    As a rule of thumb, you want to avoid hair products and treatments that contain chemicals such as parabens, DEA and sulfates.

    What is beneficial for your hair is healthy for your skin as well.

    Obviously your content above is so useful for many reasons. It steers away from the common mistakes and pitfalls too many fall into: purchasing bad alternatives. Thank you!
