Japanese Thermal hair straightening is a  technique developed in Japan, inspired by professional stylists to transform very curly, kinky hair into smooth straight hair. Liscio enables stylists to create a variety of textures – from sleek, pin-straight to natural straight with body – by providing all the necessary tools including straighteners, different ironing techniques, and protein treatments.

Hair consultation is a very important step in the hair straightening process. During the consultation, your stylist will listen to your needs, ask your hair history, assess the condition of your hair, and then decide what techniques should be used to achieve the results you want.

Your stylist will select the appropriate straightener and protection to achieve the texture and finish that you want. The straightener softens the cuticle layers on the surface of the hair and penetrates to cut the bonds between the proteins inside, preparing the hair for straightening. The Liscio system includes straighteners of different strengths to straighten and smooth all types of hair – from tight curls to loose curls to wavy. Straighteners are available in gel and cream form. Your stylist can select from the complete line of Liscio products to create any style desired, including pin-straight hair and naturally straight with body and movement. Liscio straighteners can also be used to soften curls and make the hair more manageable by eliminating frizz.

Services are priced upon consultation
