Frequently Asked Questions
How much does the curling/flat iron add-on cost?
Adding a curling or flat iron finish to your main hair treatment costs just $15, and is the perfect way to make your new cut or color look extra beautiful for a special event.
Can I book this as a standalone service?
No, our curling iron / flat iron styling option is only available when booked alongside another hair service, such as a haircut or color treatment.
What should I put on my hair before flat ironing or curling it?
You don’t need to add anything – our service includes the use of high-quality products that will not only avoid your hair becoming damaged by the heat but also nourish it, for a softer feel and silkier shine. We’ll also use setting products to ensure your new style stays put for as long as possible. Feel free to spritz on a bit more hairspray later in the day, if necessary.
How does the curling iron work?
Isn’t it amazing that something as simple as heat can reshape your hair? The high temperatures from thermal styling tools temporarily break down the hydrogen bonds that help to hold each strand in shape; then, by being held in position around the barrel of the curling wand for a few seconds, when those hydrogen bonds naturally reform they’ll keep your hair in this new, curly shape until they’re broken down again (which will happen when the hair gets wet, for example).
Why isn't my hair curling with a straightener?
Wondering how to curl hair with a flat iron / straightener? While it’s technically possible to create looser, beachy-looking waves with one of these, curls and waves are not really what this tool is intended for – the clue is in the name! Plus, the wider the flat iron, the harder it will be to create curls with it. If you want really full, bouncy curls, you need a curling iron, which come in various widths to create everything from tight ringlets to softer waves.
Naturally, we have a range of thermal styling tools on hand, so when you come to our salon for curling iron services we’ll be able to create whatever look you want.
Do I need to book an appointment?
It’s recommended. If you happen to be in the area, feel free to stop by and ask if we have availability – we’ll accept walk-ins wherever we can. But if you need your hair styled at a specific time, such as before an event, definitely book an appointment in advance to ensure we can fit you in.
