Have you ever wondered how on earth Nicole Kidman got her hair so straight, sleek and shiny? Simple, she has it professionally straightened (think back to BMX Bandits!). Yes, it is true we can do wonders with straightening irons, but for many of us it simply is not enough. We want the hair of our dreams from the moment we get up, not when we have had time to style it!
So, who can have their hair relaxed or straightened?In short- anyone! If you have curly, wavy, frizzy, unmanageable, damaged, coloured, bleached or highlighted hair and wish for straight, silky, smooth, healthy, shiny and sleek hair then straightening or relaxing may be the answer for you!
At Salon Shique we have different methods that cater to different hair types and conditions;
Permanent Hair Straightening (I want straight hair!)
Japanese Thermal Straightening (often called Ionic Hair Straightening) - permanently straightens curly and wavy hair, giving you silky, straight and shiny looking hair. This is not suitable for bleached or bleach highlighted hair.
A 'pin' straight look is not achievable for all hair types, please call 03 9866 8088 to arrange a consultation for a personalised hair assessment.
Relaxing (I want my curl softened!)
Relaxing - this is a permanent service and we at Salon Shique will not perform on bleached or bleach highlighted hair, however we will on natural, tinted or damaged hair. It relaxes your curls or waves giving you a more natural look that is easier to manage
Keratin Smoothing Treatment (I want my hair healthier, smoother and shinier!)
NEW: HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment – this can be performed on bleached, tinted, highlighted, damaged hair and even hair that has been straightened with the Ionic method. It will cut down the time you spend styling and maintaining your hair. The HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment transforms your hair to give you it all; beauty and protection! It can straighten, smooth, soften and recondition your hair instantly!
Prices for Straightening, Relaxing and HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment are dependent on the amount of hair you have; the density, length and thickness (the more hair you have the longer the service takes and the more product is required). Below are pricing guidelines for normal thickness, call 03 9866 8088 and make an appointment for a consultation to receive a personalised written quote.
Remember the taller you are the more hair you will have! For example, Julie is petite with shoulder length hair. Susie also has shoulder length hair however she is very tall. The actual difference in the two girls hair length is about 4 inches! Julie's service was $360 while Susie paid $450.

Hair Straightening | Relaxing | HydroSpa Q & A’s
Q. How long does it last?
A. The Hair Straightening and Relaxing are both permanent services, the hair that is treated will never need to be treated again; however your re-growth will be your natural hair texture and if you wish to keep the straight look will need a touch up approximately every 3 - 4 months.
After the HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment, your hair will gradually return to its natural texture after approximately 3 - 5 months provided you follow our Care & Maintenance guidelines.
Q. Why do I need a consultation?
A. For the health & wellness of your hair we must firstly have a consultation to conduct a hair & scalp analysis and strand test (not necessary for the HydroSpa Keratin Treatment) so that we can determine the best treatment for you to give you the results you are after. Your $10 consultation fee is donated in full to Ngurah’s family living in need in Bali. We will give you a written quote and explain the service to you.
Q. What’s it the difference between relaxers/hair straightening and the HydroSpa Keratin Treatment
A. The HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment straightens and smooths the hair naturally without strong chemicals. It is a reconditioning treatment that transforms the hair and restores shine. It gradually wears out over 3 -5 months.
Relaxers and permanent straighteners work on breaking and rearranging the internal bonds of the hair. Once these processes have been done the hair is permanently altered, the new growth of the relaxing and permanent straightening will always be your natural texture.
Q. When can I wash my hair after the straightening | relaxing service?
A. You can wash your hair immediately following the HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment.
You can not wash your hair for a minimum of 4 (preferably 7) days after your relaxing or permanent straightening service.
Q. What is the maintenance involved?
A. For the first four days you are required to follow the instructions outlined in your education material, after then you are able to wash and style your hair as normal. Your stylist will recommend compulsory products for you to keep your hair healthy, looking and feeling fabulous! Remember, after HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment you MUST use the recommended products or your treatment will not last and is not guaranteed.
Q. Do I need special products?
A. Yes. After your service your stylist will recommend the compulsory products to keep your hair healthy, looking and feeling fabulous.
Q. Can I swim in a chlorine pool with my straightened hair?
A. After the initial week you can swim in any pool or ocean, however, your stylist will would recommend a conditioning treatment for your hair to protect it from the elements.
If you have had the HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment salt water and chlorine can strip the keratin out of your hair quicker than normal water and will reduce the life span of the treatment. When swimming try and cover your hair and if you can't please wet your hair and apply conditioner generously to avoid stripping the keratin from your hair.
Q. What if I change my mind, can I have the straightening reversed?
A. The Hair Straightening and Relaxing are both permanent services, the only way to get your natural hair texture back is to wait until it grows!
The HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment wears off gradually over approximately 3 - 5 months and if you wish to speed up the process your stylist will be able to recommend products for you, such as shampoo with sodium chloride.
Q. Can I tie my hair back after it has been relaxed or permanently straightened?
A. Not for at least the first four days (preferably seven), after then you may tie it back as you wish. After the HydroSpa Keratin Treatment you are able to tie your hair back immediately.
Q. Can I have extensions if I straighten my hair?
A. Absolutely! Your Extensionist can design the perfect Unique Shique Hair Extensions for the look you want.
Q. Can I have my hair straightened or relaxed if I am pregnant or breast feeding?
Q. Can I still colour my hair?
A. You can colour your hair before the HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment and if you wish to do so after, simply wait two weeks and you can colour as you wish.

Betty has started using MegaThik....
"I have dark hair and it was always quite thick….that was until recently. I started noticing my hair was thinning on the top and you could see my scalp – I was mortified! I saw my doctor only to discover that it is part of my normal aging process! I cried for a week thinking of his comments! Never having being a hat or scarf wearing woman, there was no way to discreetly bring them into my life without attracting extra attention. The team at Shique recommended that I try MegaThik and what a difference it has made! I simply shake it onto my scalp and it disguises my thinning. It is marvelous!" Betty, 60
Sue is wearing Unique Shique Hair Extensions...
