Permanent Hair Straightening

As the name suggests, after a permanent hair straightening treatment your hair will be chemically restructured and straightened. It is for clients looking for a fast way to permanently straighten their naturally curly, wavy or frizzy hair. The treatment is not suitable for weak or compromised hair, or hair that has been bleached in the past (for example after highlights or balayage). If in doubt a strand test can be done before a permanent hair straightening treatment to determine suitability. This is when we test the product on a strand of your hair to see if it can withstand the chemical restructuring and rebounding.

The results after the treatment are permanent, which means hair that has been treated will stay straight – however any new hair growth that hasn’t been treated will still grow back curly or wavy. The treatment can be repeated after 6 to 8 weeks, to treat the regrowth.

If you have had highlights or balayage, permanent hair straightening is not recommended however you can still get keratin smoothing treatment.

Keratin Smoothing Treatment

Keratin treatment also referred to sometimes as a Brazilian blow dry is a treatment to infuse protein in your hair, which is like food for your hair. It reduces frizziness and improves the texture of hair to be smoother. It is not a hair straightening treatment, but since frizz is reduced, the end result is more straight and smooth hair. It is suitable for everyone that wants to improve the condition of their hair. The results can last up to 6 months if the correct aftercare is followed. It’s important to understand that using a shampoo that contains sulphate will ruin your keratin treatment. Only sulphate free shampoo and hair products must be used to maintain your keratin results.

What do you specialise in?

We specialise in all aspects of hairdressing. Our hairstylists specialise in working with all types of hair, especially long thick asian hair. Our balayage technique is very popular, and we achieve excellent results. As well as frizz free keratin treatment, and permanent hair straightening.

Find out more about the hair treatments we offer below:


What is a Balayage? Balayage is a low maintenance hair lightening treatment that gives a very blended result. Your roots are left natural and the ends of your hair are lightened, and blended up to form a seamless finish. We offer free hair consultation at Shumaila’s, during which your hairstylist will go through the most suitable and recommended finish for your hair, whether it’s caramel brown or ash blonde.

If you have a particular colour you want to achieve, we highly recommend bringing photos along to your consultation so your hairstylist can advise accordingly.


Highlights sometimes also referred to as streaks, are strands of hair that are lightened all the way from roots to ends. Depending on the type of finish you want to achieve, you can have very blended ‘baby’ highlights or chunky defined streaks. Your hairstylist will discuss your requirements before the treatment, and tailor the thickness of highlights accordingly. At the end of the treatment the highlights are toned using a toner, to cancel out any brassy orange and yellow tones.

Hair Extensions (Upminster Only)

At Shumaila’s Upminster Salon we offer:

1. Micro ring hair extensions – there is no glue used and extensions are applied strand by strand using small rings that are tightened to your own hair.

2. Keratin or fusion bond hair extensions – these are also applied strand by strand, and are glued onto your own hair using keratin bonds.

3. Tape in hair extensions – these are applied in small sections and are taped thinly onto your own hair, they lie most flat to your head shape as compared to other extensions.

Hair Extensions require a lot of maintenance and upkeep, please read the aftercare advice in the FAQ section below, before booking, to ensure it is something you can commit to.

Once you are ready to have your extensions applied, please book a free consultation with our hairdresser in Upminster. During your consultation your hairstylist will colour match and select the hair colour for your extensions, as well as discuss the length that you require. After you have had your consultation you will be able to book your appointment to have your extensions fitted.


Our hairstylists specialise in long layered haircuts, and have lots of experience in dealing with thick asian hair. If you want to go for a shorter bob haircut instead, we can achieve this beautifully also.


Whether it’s a voluminous bouncy blow dry that you prefer or a straight blowdry, your hairstylist at Shumaila’s can achieve it for you. We also offer curly blowdries and pin curls that you can open at home.

Full Head Dye or Root Tint

If you are looking for a regular place for your root tint that can provide 100% grey coverage, look no further. Our hairstylists at Shumaila’s can achieve this for you.

Or if you are looking to change your full head colour, visit us for a free consultation during which we will go through our colour chart and discuss your next hair colour.

Please note a patch test is required at least 2 days before your colour appointment.

I have had my hair colour done on 27th January! Esme did an amazing work on my hair! I was not sure about the colour, place or even the stylist as I have recently moved to London. I had an extensive online search to find a stylist with experience. I have a visit and discussion with Esme where I understood that she has knowledge about colouring. On the day of the appointment, Esme took enough time to bleach and tone despite the busyness of the place. I had to do a little ‘musical chair’ as they were continuously shifting me around for accommodating other appointments! However, Esme made sure of the time she needed to get the colour she thought suits my hair! I loved the hair colour and so did others! I get plenty of complements on a daily basis Alhamdulillah! I would suggest Esme strongly for hair colouring to anyone who isn’t sure of their colour, tone and trustworthy stylist! She has the skills to be in signature salons! Would also recommend to discuss less busy time for appointments! I am extremely satisfied and thankful to Esme for this Balayage and the way it complements my confidence!

I just had my hair done by Esme and it looks amazing. She re did a balayage which I last had done in 2022. She was very knowledgeable with my hair especially since it was curly and was able to tell me how much to get cut and how much should be bleached without damaging my hair or causing it to break off. She also helped me decide on many things such as the shape of the cut and the toner colour which came out great and looks amazing. All the staff there are nice and friendly and made me feel welcomed.

If you’re looking for a calm and relaxing environment to have your hair coloured and cut, then you need to book yourself in at Shumaila’s! I booked myself a treatment here at Shumaila’s, for Balayage and haircut. I can’t believe the way my amazing hair colourist, Ona, worked pure magic on my hair! She brought the photo I showed her as an example of what I was hoping to get to life and I absolutely LOVE my hair!! My previous experience with balayage in a different hair salon was so terrible that it put me off of having it done ever again but after the way Ona did my hair I feel much more confident and happier! Thank you so much for looking after me, making me comfortable and doing a great job on my look!! She communicated throughout the haircut everything she was doing so I could make adjustments to the length so it aligned perfectly with my face shape etc. I really appreciated this. She also checked the colour was to my preferred shade and when it wasn’t she was very happy to amend it for me and it didn’t take too long at all! I was done under 3 hours! Thank you Ona for your hard-work, time and your lovely company!!
