I'm confused by all the different Hair Straightening Terms, what do they all mean?
There are many different terms used to describe Permanent Hair Straightening; Japanese Straightening, Thermal Reconditioning, Straight Perm, Ionic Straightening, Bio Ionic, Permanent Straightening, Thermal Straightening, Yuko Straightening and Shiseido Crystallizing Straightening. These are using basically the same process to straighten curly, wavy or frizzy hair. They are all permanent hair straightening and will leave your hair looking healthier, shiny, sleek and easier to manage. Your regrowth will be your natural hair texture.
At Salon Shique we have chosen Shiseido Professional Crystallizing Straightening because we are thrilled with the results and love the after care products! We value the health and wellness of your hair and will not perform this service on bleached or bleach highlighted hair as it may cause damage.
If you are wanting to soften your curl then Relaxing may be the service for you! Results will vary depending on how curly or wavy your natural hair is but you can expect healthy, bouncy, manageable, silky, soft and natural hair.
If you are wanting straighter, smoother, healthier hair then HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment may be the perfect service for you! Keratin Treatments will give you beautiful, easy to manage, silky, shiny hair. There are many different brands of keratin treatments available on the market, each vary slightly in results. The HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment can straighten, smooth, recondition, smooth frizz, make your hair so much easier to manage and protect your hair from the effects of humidity! HydroSpa Keratin Smoothing Treatment wears out after 3 - 5 months, it is not a permanent service.

For the first time in my life I have sleek, shiny, smooth hair and I just love it! Thank you Shique for my beautiful new hair!"Amanda - Hair Straightening
Can I Straighten Only My Fringe?
Yes! It is possible to straighten specific sections of your hair according to your personal requirements. For example, Sammy has kinks in her fringe and hairline that would pop up at the slightest hint of humidity, we used the Shiseido Crystallizing Straightener on her fringe and hairline for $95.
"Thank you Shique for giving me an extra 10 minutes in the morning and my sanity on a humid day! I now get to wear my fringe out without worrying about the weather!" Sammy
