What is a Japanese Hair Straightening

Japanese hair straightening is one part hair style, one part art form and one part ease. Known also as a Thermal Reconditioning, a Japanese Straightening straightens every strand of your hair and requires little to no styling after rough drying your hair.

This method of hair straightening hair involves high heat, chemicals, and a flat iron to straighten curly or unruly hair. Unlike treatments, such as Brazilian keratin treatments and chemical relaxers, the end result is permanent and will last much longer. It generally only requires minimal touch-ups once or twice a year.


Our services include a complimentary consultation and our work is guaranteed for 7 days. Prices for keratin Japanese Straightening can range from $400 to $800+ (if you have exceptionally thick hair or exceptionally long hair). Although we can estimate a price over the phone, we only guarantee the price when you visit for your service or during a complimentary consultation. We require a 50% deposit which can be paid via eTransfer to or in person.


Thermal reconditioning with a Japanese hair straightener will take between 4 -5 hours depending on the length of hair that must be straightened. Japanese straightening is a technique that causes wavy, frizzy, or curly hair to be rendered perfectly straight. During the procedure the molecular bonds within the hair are softened and reformed into a straight pattern. Once the process is completed the end result includes not only incredibly straight hair, but a smooth, silky, and glossy finish with the least amount of effort.

You will be required to book a complimentary consultation with Mari or Kelly to ensure the optimum health of your hair before and after the service.
