Hair Straightening

Your one-stop shop for hair straightening in NYC

Want straight hair, and not sure which type to get? Stop into the HairPlaceNYC and let one of our specialists analyze your hair and see which method is right for you. Each method closes the cuticle (the outer edge of the hair) and leaves your hair silky smooth, soft and straight. Results can vary between straightening methods. You can get perfectly pin straight hair, loosen a wave, or just take the frizz and make it easier to blow-dry. To help you decide on exactly what you want, we offer free hair consultations. During your consultation, we will help you choose the best hair straightening method for your lifestyle and budget.

Brazilian Hair Straightening

We specialize in Brazilian Hair Straightening (aka Brazilian Keratin Treatment, BKT, Keratin Cure, Keratin Straightening). By applying a coating to the outer edges of the hair and flat ironing, this hair treatment will leave your hair smooth and loosen any curls or waves to a your desired form, and eliminates frizz. The end result is naturally looking straight hair, that a million times easier to blow-dry.

Brazilian Keratin Treatment Benefits

  • Leaves your hair silky smooth, soft, and most importantly… as straight as you choose
  • Not Permanent (lasts up to 2-3 months)
  • Repairs damage to your hair and coats it to prevent further damage
  • Can be applied to ANY hair (premed, relaxed, bleached, colored, highlights)
  • Fast and affordable

The Process: Our Brazilian Keratin Treatment process is easy. We begin with a good shampooing to open up your hair cuticles and cleanse the hair with a PH balancing shampoo. We then coat your hair with approximately 3 ounces of the Keratin Treatment. We then blow dry the hair close to your scalp. Lastly, we flat iron your entire hair at high heat to seal in the treatment. The coating on the hair keeps it straight for 2-3 months.

That’s all it takes to walk away with beautiful, silky straight hair. So come and experience it for yourself.

Japanese Hair Straightening

Japanese hair straightening, or Thermal Reconditioning, is a process used to permanently change the molecular structure of the hair. The hair is relaxed, flat-ironed straight, and neutralized to lock in the straight form. Plus, there is minimal damage to hair. Japanese hair straightening will typically improve the hair’s feel, softness and shine while making it more manageable! A great service for those who desire really straight hair!

“Everybody’s hair is different. Some women require a lot of processing from color treatments. So it’s important to have a stylist that analyzes your hair from top to bottom, and choose the right strength. I’d rather see my stylists pass on the service than damage someone’s hair, ” says Andrew DiSimone, Owner of HairPlaceNYC.

What to Expect: Bring your lunch. It takes some time to do it right – anywhere between two and six hours depending on the length, thickness and condition of your hair. With Japanese hair straightening, you can enjoy your new hair style for approximately six to nine months. To keep your hair looking beautiful, you should expect to do two treatments per year.
