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.


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.

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.


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.

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 is Olaplex? Olaplex is a revolutionary treatment that reduces damage to your hair structure during hair colouring or bleaching services such as highlights and balayage. The olaplex treatment is added directly into your hair colour or bleach to protect your hair during application. We offer this as an ad-on treatment to your colour service. Please let your hairstylist know If you would like to add this to your service.

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.
