This straightening system was created in Japan in 1996 by Yuko Yamashita (which is why many have dubbed the process Yuko hair straightening). This stylist and salon owner wanted her clients to be happy and have healthy locks, no matter their hair type.

This method is also known as Liscio hair straightening and works by applying a solution to the hair which changes the bonds in the strands that cause curls and waves. These bonds then become straight with the help of a hair iron. While Liscio Japanese hair straightening can take a few hours to complete the process, many still choose the treatment as it can last up to six months.

While there are benefits to be enjoyed from this process additionally known as Shiseido hair straightening, it is important to have this treatment done by a professional. Whenever there are chemicals involved it is crucial to be in the right hands in order to avoid any damage to the hair.

Our Shiseido hair straightening salon will first organise an assessment. This way the hair can be checked, and it can be established if the strands have any previous colour or damage. The stylist can then best assess if the treatment can go ahead, or if some extra products can be used to reduce any damage.


Protecting products are applied to prevent any damage. Depending on the condition of the strands, the amount of product needed will vary.

The next step in Liscio Japanese hair straightening is the application. The chemicals are applied and left to process accordingly. This is the step that changes the bonds in the strands.


After a gentle dry, the hair is ironed with a professional salon tool on a specific setting. A neutraliser is then applied to the hair once the ironing process is done. This solidifies the whole process.
