Japanese Perm, thermal reconditioning, straight perm, bio ionic hair retexturizing, high-tech perm. What do all of these names have in common, you ask? They are all different names for one service: the Japanese hair straightening service.
A Japanese hair straightening service is slightly similar to a Brazilian blowout, but also more like a reverse perm.
