  • In our Montreal salon, acrylics and gel manicures continue to be the two most popular ways for women to get their nails done. Both options can last for about two weeks and come in a variety of colors and styles. But which one is better? This blog will explore both sides of the debate so you can decide for yourself. The Differences Between Acrylic and Gel Nails   Gel nails: Gel nails are cured under UV lights to harden the gel. Unlike acrylics, gel nails do not require liquid and powder to create a hard surface. Gel nails offer flexibility and a natural-looking finish. Gel nails are removed by soaking in acetone polish remover. Acrylic nails: Acrylic nails are made of liquid and powder, providing strength and durability. Acrylics are more rigid than gel nails but require regular filing to maintain smoothness. Acrylic nails last longer than gel manicures but can be more challenging to remove. FAQ Is gel or acrylic better for weak nails? For weak nails, gel nails may be a preferable option due to their flexibility and gentler application process. Gel nails provide added strength without the bulkiness of acrylics, promoting healthier nail growth while offering a natural-looking finish. With less risk of damage to the natural nail bed, gel nails can be a gentle yet effective solution for strengthening weak nails. Which lasts longer, gel or acrylic nails? Acrylic nails tend to last longer than gel nails, typically about two weeks longer. Acrylics are more durable and can withstand stronger forces and pressure, making them ideal for those looking for longer-lasting nail enhancements. Are gel nails easier to remove than acrylic nails? Yes, gel nails are generally easier to remove than acrylic nails. Gel nails are removed by soaking in acetone polish remover, while acrylic nails require soaking and filing before removal. However, both processes should ideally be done by a professional to avoid damage to the natural nail bed. Which option is best for a natural-looking finish? Gel nails are often preferred for a natural-looking finish due to their flexibility and glossy appearance. Gel polish mimics the shine and texture of natural nails, making them a popular choice for those seeking a subtle enhancement. However, acrylic nails can also be customized for a natural appearance with proper shaping and finishing techniques.
  • While balayage is one of the most popular hair color treatments at our Montreal salon, there are certain shades that are having their heyday, namely Ash Balayage. Ash balayage skillfully combines both balayage and grey hues to create a distinctly unique and becoming end result. Ash balayage first gained traction as one of the biggest 2017 hair color trends on Pinterest though we saw it trending even before that. But ash balayage become a more requested type of balayage from 2019 onward. What is Ash Balayage? Ash balayage is a combination of lighter, ashy tones (blended with darker ash or other shades) to leave the hair looking almost a blend of a silvery-grey shade. Similar to the original balayage, roots remain dark before the color becomes lighter and lighter descending the head, finishing in ash blonde and/or grey tones on the ends. Why is Ash Balayage so Popular? Ash balayage is so popular for two reasons. One, in the last decade, gray hair has become more than just acceptable but celebrated with even 20-somethings "going gray" with the use of muted, ash and gray shades. Two, balayage has been popular since its inception decades ago. Combine the two? And you have a new favorite balayage! How much is Ash Balayage? Balayage prices can range depending on the length of your hair and the specific level of treatment you require. You are always welcome to stop by our Montreal salon and get a consultation for exact pricing. Below is a video of a balayage treatment at our Montreal salon. While its not an ash balayage, it shows the attention we give to make sure the end result is blended to perfection. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBrlirw2ULg      
  • You’ve seen it for years, at every salon or barbershop. Barbicide is that blue liquid that’s used to disinfect all hair styling tools.
  • A massive hairstyle trend from the 1960s where women teased their hair into a tall, poofy "hive" on top of their heads. Popularized by pop stars like The Ronettes and (more contemporarily) the B-52's, this exaggerated hairstyle can still be seen on today's red carpet as a glam statement.
  • A critical component to most good haircuts, blending ensures a smooth transition from layer to layer. Blending also contributes to the overall body of a haircut, giving it sway and flow. A good hairdresser knows the importance of blending your hair correctly.
  • A blow-out can be done with or without a cut or color service and consists of advanced blowdrying techniques and iron work for a killer hairstyle. Expect long-lasting (3 – 5 days) body, volume and shine and that “just walked out of the salon” look. Perfect for special occasions. Contact us for your next blowout appointment.
  • A blunt but is a uniform cut with concise lines, where the length of the hair is the same all around the head. This clean-cut works best on straight hair since it showcases the shine and straitness of the strands. Contact us if you're interested in the best blunt cut in Montreal!
  • One of the most popular haircuts for generations, a bob haircut essentially means your hairline falls neatly around your chin or ears. Bob haircuts come in all sorts of varieties. Expect our stylists to know the latest in bob haircut trends.
  • Body essentially means hair with volume, often lifted from the scalp (often using heating tools), so it appears bigger. It can also mean thicker hair (that again, appears bigger, fuller).
  • What is Hair Botox?   It's a question we're asked every day at our Montreal salon. What is this miracle hair treatment that can take my frizzy head of hair and make it silky smooth? No needles involved! Let's get that out of the way. Hair Botox has no Botox (botulinum toxins) in it and is a name only. (Should someone have thought out the name of this miracle hair treatment before launch? Perhaps. But let's move on.) Hair Botox is a deep conditioning hair treatment that provides your hair with long-term sheen, shine and smoothness. So if you're plagued by frizzy hair, this is the treatment for you. Why our Montreal Salon is THE Source for Hair Botox Treatment   Keratin treatments and hair botox are two of the most popular treatment procedures in salons and our Montreal salon is no different. We want to stay on top of trending hair treatments so YOU can look your very best. We make sure we purchase the best Hair Botox Treatment in Montreal, doing considerable research before stocking our salon. Why Do I Need a Hair Botox Treatment?   Frizzy hair is one of the most common hair issues at most salons...and for a good reason: most people use heating tools or expose their strands to damaging chemicals (thanks chlorine) that dries out the hair and essentially, that's what frizzy hair is: damaged, dry hair. Keratin treatment is not the same as hair botox.   While Hair Botox sounds like it has chemicals in it and a keratin treatment sounds natural, it's just the opposite. It's a keratin treatment that often contains formaldehyde, not Hair Botox. Common Ingredients Found in Hair Botox Treatments Include:   Hair botox treatment can include: caviar oil, antioxidants, B5, vitamin E and collagen--all beneficial for your hair. These ingredients infuse strands with healthful, fortifying ingredients that strengthen and protect your hair. Where can I get a Hair Botox treatment in Montreal?   Lucky for you, our Montreal-based hair salon provides Hair Botox treatments. We're centrally located so if you're in Montreal, its easy to get to us.

  • There are more kinds of bridal hairstyles than we could possibly name, with news bridal do’s trending each year. Examples of the bridal hairstyles we provide include: updos, chignons, long braids, side braids, loose waves, ballerina bun, vintage updo, golden age wave, low bun, braided halo, fishtail braids and many, many more.
  • A French term (meaning "nape of neck) a chignon is basically a low-hanging bun secured near the nape of the neck. They can be smooth and sleek or left more untamed in appearance.  
  • This strong shampoo removes build-up from hard water, hair products, old hair color, etc. Because of its strong pH level, it should be used once or twice a week.    
  • There is probably no style more popular yet more classic than a classic comb style for men. Its the most requested style at our Montreal barber salon. Why? A classic combover looks good on just about any man and its fairly easy to create and hold throughout the day (perfect for men on the go who don't want to be bothered). What is a classic combover for men?   A classic combover is when you define a part, then work the hair (from root to tip) in the opposing direction, often using a styling product to keep it in place. The end result is a clean, sharp look that accentuates the face and looks star-level handsome. A tip when creating a classic combover for men? When finished creating your classic combover, use the back end of the comb, not the teeth, to give the final smoothing touches. And don't forget the hairspray!  Our barbershop understands the best methods when it comes to a classic combover for men. Expect a sleek, stylish but moveable look that is perfect for a day at the office or a night out on the town! Where can I get a Classic Combover Hairstyle for Men?   Our upscale barbershop proudly offers freestyle beard designs. The barbershop is adjacent to Salon Deauville, our popular Montreal-based hair salon.

  • Choosing the right hair color for your skin tone is a critically important decision. The wrong color can give you a washed-out appearance or simply put, not look good! A color consultation with one of our professional colorists helps you make the best decision possible. But it’s not just the choice of color that matters; it’s the kind of color, whether its permanent color, semi-permanent (or demi-permanent) color or highlights or balayage, we help you make the right decision based on your lifestyle and preferences.
  • Ah, the dreaded cowlick. It’s an area of the hair that grows in a different direction than the rest of the head. But a good stylist knows how to work with your cowlick, not against it!
  • One of the longest-standing haircuts in history, the crew cut is a short, often tapered cut that’s shorter on the top of the head and often slightly longer in front. Our barber shop takes crew cuts seriously, giving this classic cut a contemporary look.
  • This technique is created by a heating tool and results in an angular wave pattern.
  • The cuticle is the outer portion of a strand of hair. The surface is scale-like. Keeping the cuticle healthy and in tact is critical for the overall health of the hair.
  • The cuticle of a hair strand is the outer "shell" of the hair that protects it from damage.
  • The dreaded but common scalp disorder caused by an overproduction of cells that causes unsightly flakes. We have a range of salon-level haircare products to tend to this condition.
  • Extra powerful conditioner (used to soften and enrich your hair) that’s left on the strands for several minutes for deep penetration. Deep conditioners are a smart choice for overly damaged or overly processed hair.
  • Developer is the term used for peroxide added to semi-permanent and permanent hair color or bleach. It serves to lift the cuticle and allows color to penetrate the strands.
  • At Salon Deauville, located in the heart of Montreal, the best facials are more than just a beauty treatment—they are a sensory experience designed to rejuvenate skin and spirit. Our renowned salon, celebrated for its super clean facility, state-of-the-art equipment and some of the best aestheticians in the city, provides a variety of facials tailored to meet the unique needs of every client. The HydraFacial: A Revolution in Skincare Among the many facials offered, the HydraFacial stands out as a star treatment at Salon Deauville. This advanced skincare treatment is beloved for delivering immediate, noticeable results with no downtime. The HydraFacial combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection in one seamless process, making it ideal for all skin types and concerns. HydraFacial - What to Expect 1. Cleansing and Exfoliation: The treatment begins with a gentle cleansing and exfoliation using a small deplaning tool that opens up pores and removes the uppermost layer of makeup debris and dead skin cells. 2. Acid Peel: A non-irritating mix of salicylic and glycolic acids is applied to help loosen deep pore debris and dirt. This mild peel is effective yet gentle, ensuring that the skin isn’t left red or irritated. 3. Extraction: Instead of performing manual extractions, the HydraFacial uses a powerful, painless vortex vacuum suction to remove impurities from the pores. 4. Hydration: The final step involves the application of potent serums filled with antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid to nourish and protect the skin. This step is crucial as it deeply hydrates the skin, leaving it plump and radiant. Other Types of Facials   Classic European Facial: This traditional facial is perfect for maintaining healthy skin. It includes cleansing, skin analysis, exfoliation, steam, extraction, facial massage, mask, and moisturizing. Tailored to each client’s skin type, this facial is a cornerstone for regular skincare routines. Anti-Aging Facial: Utilizing cutting-edge technology and high-performance products, this facial targets fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. It often includes treatments such as microcurrent therapy, which tones and tightens facial muscles and LED light therapy, which stimulates collagen production. Acne Facial: Designed for those struggling with acne, this facial focuses on deep cleansing and soothing inflamed skin. Salicylic acid and other acne-fighting ingredients help to clear breakouts and prevent future ones, while calming masks reduce redness and irritation. Brightening Facial: For those looking to improve skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation, this facial uses powerful antioxidants and brightening agents. Vitamin C, a key ingredient, helps to fade dark spots and give the skin a radiant glow.

  • A diffuser is an attachment for blow dryers that disperses airflow and covers larger areas of hair. This kind of attachment is ideal for those with curly hair who still want drying action but don’t want to lose the smooth pliancy of the curl.
  • Dimension is a hair coloring term used to describe the layers of colors or depth of colors. Color with dimension isn’t flat (think of poor quality drugstore hair color) but rich with micro-color gradations that give the hair a more natural and deeper appearance.
  • A Rastafarian hairstyle with a long, rich history stemming back to Ancient Greece and popularized proudly in Jamaica. Its done by roping/twisting the hair, backcombing it, and allowing it to knot up naturally. Dreads are often long though shorter dreadlocks close to the scalp are also possible.    
  • Hair stylists employ this technique as part of the cutting process. Dry cutting helps with more detailed work and gives the stylist a better idea as to how the hair falls when its dry.
  • Less than even a trim, a dusting just barely removes dead ends without giving that "freshly cut" look.
  • The Dutch braid is basically an inverted French braid where the pleats are passed underneath (instead of over, as in the case of traditional braiding). The braid also sits on top of the head, inverted.
  • Our Montreal-based barbershop is staffed with artists and stylists who go above and beyond when it comes to freestyle beard designs. Many repeat customers just let the barbers "do their thing" while some give some input regarding their beard design. Either way, we're ready to jazz up that beautiful facial hair of yours! What is a Freestyle Beard Design?   Well, its pretty self-explanatory but a freestyle beard design means the barber is free to create a design of his or her choice. This means designs can be "drawn" into the beard. Think letters, numbers, arrows and other symbols. Who Gets a Freestyle Beard Design?   We commonly see artists and musicians opting for a freestyle beard design since they can express themselves more freely than say, the average businessman. We can also create very subtle designs if you don't want to be that expressive! Where do I get a Freestyle Beard Design?   Our upscale barbershop proudly offers freestyle beard designs. The barbershop is adjacent to Salon Deauville, our popular Montreal-based hair salon. Our Montreal salon is located on 4048 Rue Jean-Talon O near the Triangle (Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough) bordering and including the following areas: Mont-royal Quebec Canada Westmount Quebec Canada Cote-saint-Luc, Quebec Canada Ville-saint-laurent Quebec Canada Outremont Quebec Canada Stop by for an in-person consultation if you're unsure what men's haircut works best on you!

  • A denser, layered braiding style, every section is laid over the center, meaning that each time a section crosser, the stylist integrates a new piece of hair to add to the braid.
  • Covering grey hair is often one of the main reasons people seek hair color (since grey hair can often make you appear older or washed out). Both permanent and semi-permanent hair colors can be used to cover grey, to varying degrees. Semi (or demi) permanent hair colors provide temporary coverage (4 – 6 weeks) and fades well, without the dreaded hard line created by longer-lasting permanent hair color. There are also blonde options for those who are looking to blend their gray with blonde, which is a nice alternative for those looking for less upkeep.
  • Hair color can make or break your hair…literally. We have several specialized colorists on our staff because everyone here recognizes this simple fact: hair coloring is an art. And we take it very seriously. We use only top-of-the-line hair color products (Goldwell, Wella, Oligo and more) for a rich, lustrous and long-lasting look. We offer both permanent and semi-permanent hair color options and will happily consult with you beforehand so you get the exact color you want. Hair coloring can include touch-ups, grey cover, all-over color, highlights, lowlights and more. Contact us for a world-class hair color, located conveniently in Montreal.
  • One of the easiest ways to have long hair, even if its temporary. With the new types of extensions available (that we carry in our salon), you can add length, volume and even color. Different types of extensions include real/synthetic hair, clip-ins, tape-ins, weaves, pre-bonded and fusion, among others. Some extensions are ideal for short periods (wedding and honeymoon for example) whereas some can last longer, even up to a year. A consultation with your stylist is usually suggested so you can decide on the right extensions for your hair type.
  • Most of us wait years for something we could have in a few hours: long hair. What is it about long hair that represents beauty and free-spiritedness? Perhaps because we know: its our original state of being. Meaning, if you never got a haircut in your life, your hair would quite long (and perhaps inhabited by many dead ends). But long hair well...takes a long time. Many of us don't grow hair that well. Or our hair starts looking shabby as it gets longer, not the picture in our imagination. Enter stage right: Hair extensions in Montreal, the Capital of Fashion and Beauty Montreal is a pinnacle of fashion and beauty in Canada. We house a multitude of top designers, hair stylists and amazing hair salons. When you live in a city as large as ours, you can expect a "cut above" when it comes to hair services. This especially applies to hair extensions. In our downtown salon, you can expect the best of the best when it comes to hair extensions. The Three Types of Hair Extensions What type of hair extensions works best for you? The best method is a consultation with one of our stylists. We'll examine issues such as budget, lifestyle, hair goals, hair health, maintenance and more. Sew-in hair extensions This is one of the oldest of hair extension methods, where the stylist sews sections of hair to attached micro braids. Tape-In Hair Extensions This is the newest type of semi-permanent hair extension. Most of our stylists prefer this method (especially fusion hair extensions) because it's easier and can produce amazing results. Two thin layers of wefts surround your natural strands and are then heated to seal a bond. Its not really tape per se but a sealing method. Clip-In Hair Extensions Clip-in hair extensions are the simplest type of extensions to apply and remove, making it a perfect fit for a special event (like your Wedding Day or New Year's Eve) or as a method to experiment with hair extensions before committing to a longer-term procedure. Are you ready for a consultation? We are. We love the power of good hair extensions. It can give you that dream head of hair without waiting years for it!      
  • Montreal Hair Salon Spa Deauville is a one-stop shop for beauty and hair care. This Montreal salon offers hair extensions, semi-permanent make-up, bridal hair, event blowouts, massage, hydrafacials, and more.   What is a Keratin Hair Treatment?   The keratin treatment is a process that restructures damaged hair by using the protein keratin. This treatment creates a smooth layer of hair by smoothing out the cells that overlap to form strands. The process can reduce split ends, reduce frizz, and create a shiny and manageable hairstyle.   A keratin treatment is a great way to achieve manageable, fuss-free hair. The result is salon-worthy blow-dry looks without the hassle of constant care. However, the process is not suitable for all types of hair. Fine or moderately straight hair should not be subjected to this treatment.   Before getting a keratin treatment, you should consult with a hairstylist so that they can find the perfect formula for your hair type. The procedure takes two to four hours, depending on the length of your hair. The hairstylist will first wash your hair and then apply the formula.   Who should get a Keratin Treatment?   A keratin treatment is great for anyone who has damaged or frizzy hair. It will smooth out frizz, add shine, and seal in color. It will also make your hair manageable and reduce drying time.

  • Can Straightening Damage Your Hair? Many people think that straightening their hair weakens the strands, but the truth is, straightening your hair doesn't necessarily damage it but can compromise all ready weakened hair. Using a flat iron on your hair can damage it. Test your Strands before Hair Straightening Each person's hair is different and may react differently to the chemicals used in hair straightening. If you are thinking about getting your hair straightened, you should first try a sample piece to see if it damages your hair. Also, you'll need to take into account that the chemicals used in some hair straightening products contain formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen. Even formulas labeled "formaldehyde-free" may contain some of these chemicals. Ask about our healthier options before getting your hair straightened. Condition Hair Before Straightening Healthy hair contains moisture and natural oils that give it a shiny appearance. But hair straightening can deplete the moisture in your hair, causing split ends. Another way to avoid damage from straightening your hair is to deep condition it. Split ends look unsightly and are indicative of damaged hair. Use Thermal Protectant on your Hair If you choose to use a flat iron, make sure you use a thermal protectant. This will help prevent the damage caused by the heat from straightening. It will also help to keep your hair from drying out as quickly. Come in for a Hair Straightening Consultation at our Montreal Salon!

  • Just like an angel’s halo, this glorified Dutch braid wraps elegantly around the head (not hanging down, like traditional braids). It's a beautiful choice as a carefree, elegant hairdo for your wedding.
  • A natural hair colorant made from vegetable dye. It tends to cast a reddish shade on hair whereas clear henna is all about the shine. (Please consult with your colorist before using henna since it can interact poorly with professional or over-the-counter hair color, leaving an undesirable shade.)
  • Simply put: highlighting means lightening certain strands of hair via a lightening product. Highlighting can be done in a variety of ways including traditional highlights, balayage, babylights (the most subtle type of highlighting), foils, ombre, sombre and more. The main goal of highlights is to add dimension to your overall hair color, often providing that sun-kissed look of spending a summer on the beach. Our highlighting services are available in our Montreal salon.

  • Have you done a search for "Master Hair Cutter Near Me" and come up with mixed results? Anyone can say they're a Master Haircutter but how can you be sure based on a simple Google search? What is a Master Hair Cutter? Often referred to as a Master Stylist, a Master Haircutter is capable of the most complicated haircuts -  even the most difficult haircut (The 90-Degree Layered Haircut). They are experts with scissor technique and are able to not only take on tough cuts but do so with speed and accuracy. But more than capability, they are also highly intuitive haircutters. They can look at a face (and personality type) and quickly ascertain what haircut and hair product will work best. To top it all of, Master Haircutters can fix flawed haircuts, even mismatched layers, which can be notoriously hard to fix. They also know how to build out fine hair for maximum fullness. Master Haircutters also create styles built to last. A good haircut grows out more evenly and effortlessly. (Many who have experienced cuts from master stylists tell us their hair looked better over time.) The Master Haircutter and Experience What does it take to become a Master Haircutter? Generally, a Master Haircutter needs over 10 years of uninterrupted experience behind the chair. They often have a vast clientele of happy customers with glowing reviews to support their work. Most likely, these special stylists have continued education throughout their career, since a stylist must improve and self-educate to keep up with the times. A Master Haircutter often has a warm, inviting and supportive personality. And this matters! This improves your overall experience at the salon and simply put, makes you feel tended to and beautiful. Are you ready to experience one of our Master Haircutters? We have several to choose from.  Request a Master Haircutter when you reach out to us and we'll match you with just the right one.

Not only do they provide exceptional haircutting and coloring services but they are also often responsible for mentoring and training junior stylists, helping them hone their skills and increase their overall knowledge base. You'll often see a junior stylist watching and observing a master stylist in action at our salon. A master stylist may also offer special classes occasionally so the whole team can watch the master in action. On top of continuing education, master stylists often have a lengthy list of clientele. It's not uncommon to wait weeks or months until you can see him or her (so book in advance). Why do I want to see a master stylist? The answer may sound obvious but a master stylist is the best of the best, which assures you will get the cut or color or hair treatment you truly want. This top stylist is skillful in his or her technique which means you can be more comfortable in the process and end result. A master stylist is also a perfect choice if you have problem hair. This includes fine or thinning hair (since a master stylist knows how to make your hair appear thicker). A master hairstylist is also a good person to see if you need color correction or treatment correction. These kinds of issues can be very problematic and you need to see a professional to ensure the safety of your hair. If you're looking for a master stylist at our salon, contact us. We'll match you with one of our top hair professionals.
  • Microblading in Montreal - Get it Right the First Time You could go anywhere in Montreal for microblading, right? But trust me, you don't want to. You need a pro. Just like getting a tattoo requires a professional (seriously, you don't want to see a bad tattoo for the rest of your life), microblading requires the right person with the right skill. Don't get me wrong: microblading is not tattooing. Its not a permanent procedure but a semi-permanent procedure. But there are similarities. Microblading uses a small tool with tiny needles (again: similar to tattooing). These teeny needles sketch delicate hair strokes and deposit pigment ever so slightly under your skin. A real pro makes sure the hair strokes are natural-looking, darker/thicker at the bottom and lightening up toward the end: just like real eyebrow hair. How long does microblading last? A professional microblading procedure lasts anywhere from 16 - 30 months. It generally requires touch-ups at our Montreal salon once or twice a year. Once the pigment completely fades, you'll need to go back to our salon for a touch-up application. The nice part? The fading from microblading is subtle and incremental: no noticeable fading, like dark roots at the base of your blonde hair (by the way, if you need a color touch-up, we use top-notch hair colors here).  Microblading is semi-permanent make-up. Something about the name "microblading" doesn't quite sound like what it is: natural-looking semi-permanent make-up. We offer different types of semi-permanent make-up at our Montreal salon. See what kind works for you! Just imagine: not having to apply mascara daily - what freedom! Is microblading worth it? It does take some time but semi-permanent make-up like microblading lasts a long time (that's a long time where you don't have to apply make-up daily). Microblading your eyebrows also has a very definite effect on the entire look of your face because your eyebrows are a facial "framing" of sorts. The better the frame, the better the overall appearance. Where is your Montreal salon and when can I book a microblading appointment? We have multiple methods to book appointments at our downtown Montreal salon. Our Montreal salon is located on 4048 Rue Jean-Talon O near the Triangle (Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough) bordering and including the following areas: Mont-royal Quebec Canada Westmount Quebec Canada Cote-saint-Luc, Quebec Canada Ville-saint-laurent Quebec Canada Outremont Quebec Canada
  • Nanoplasty hair treatment results in silky smooth, straight hair for up to 6 months. What is nanoplasty and is it better than a  keratin hair treatment?   Nanoplastia (Nanoplasty) is a newer alternative to keratin treatment with a healthier formula (no smelly, toxic formaldehyde) than keratin. Many consider nanoplastia superior to keratin, with better end results (shiny, straight hair). How long does a nanoplasty treatment last?   The silky smooth and shiny finish of a nanoplasty treatment can last up to 4 - 6 months or until your hair grows out.   Is nanoplasty good for my hair?   A nanoplasty treatment nourishes and restores your hair since its chemical components consist of amino acids and collagen. A nanoplastic treatment penetrates the strands and works on a deeper, more cellular level, meaning longer-lasting results that actually have a protective effect (since sun, pollution and heating tools can damage the hair).   What is the difference between Keratin Treatment and Nanoplasty?    The fundamental difference between nanoplasty hair treatment and keratin hair treatment (also called a Brazilian or hair botox) is the chemical make-up. Keratin treatments often contain formaldehyde (that noxious smell) whereas nanoplastia is made up of amino acids and collagen (without the powerful scent). The end result differs slightly as well. A keratin treatment is primarily for straightening hair where nanoplasty restores hair. Both can leave a shiny, poker straight finish but you'll probably have more body and healthier hair with nanoplastia.   Is nanoplasty vegan?   Yes, nanoplasty is made of natural vegan ingredients such as organic acids, açai and natural oils. It contains no harsh chemicals such as formaldehyde releasers, carboncysteine or other noxious nasty stuff. Who is the best candidate for nanoplasty?   Nanoplasty is perfect for those with fine or thin hair. Fine and thin hair respond well to this treatment since that kind of hair can be more damage-prone and nanoplasty is a restorative treatment overall. Nanoplasty is even safe for pregnant women and kids from 7 years old and up because it doesn't contain harsh chemicals or formaldehyde.   Where can I get a nanoplasty hair treatment in Montreal?   Lucky for you, our Montreal-based hair salon provides nanoplasty hair treatments. We're centrally located so if you're in our city, its easy to get to us.

  • A permanent is a chemical solution applied to hair to achieve a long-term curl. Perms have a reputation of being damaging to the hair but they tend to be less damaging than bleaching hair. They are also made with less harmful ingredients than in the past.  
  • A root-touch is done in-between hair colors when your roots have grown out and are visually noticeable. Hair color is generally done every 4 - 6 weeks so a touch-up falls in this time frame. You can come into our salon for a touch-up or you can perform a basic touch-up at home using a variety of products, including sprays, gels and semi-permanent products.
  • Mullets get a bad rap, tied and tethered to the '80s, acid-washed jeans and, well...bad taste. But the mullet has come a long way. Let's welcome in a newer, more modern version of this classically maligned haircut. The mullet has several alternative "pet" names such as the Kentucky Waterfall, the Camaro Crash Helmet,  the Camaro Cut, the Missouri Compromise, the Ape Drape, the Canadian Passport. What exactly is a mullet haircut?   Most simply put, a mullet is a hairstyle where the hair is cut shorter at the front and sides but is longer at the back. As you see from that definition, the mullet covers a LOT of ground. This means many cuts are mullets without being called a mullet (since many cuts are shorter at the front and longer at the back, right?). The resurgence of the mullet haircut for men post-pandemic and TikTok   The mullet served a practical purpose when it comes to at-home haircuts during the lockdown: it's a pretty easy haircut to maintain since a large portion (the back) of the hair is just left to grow. On TikTok alone, there are tens of thousands of videos of Millenials sporting newer, modernized versions of the mullet haircut, adapting it in ways that go far beyond the 80's. There is also something nostalgic about the mullet haircut. People reflect and remember that time during the 80's. During the pandemic, many longed for simpler times. Like fashion, haircuts can bring us back in a comforting, fun way. Where can I get a modernized mullet haircut in Montreal? Our Montreal-based barbershop (Deauville au Masculin) is staffed with true artists who understand the emergence (or in this case, the re-emergence) of a hair trend like the mullet. Book an appointment and one of our stylists will create a mullet hairstyle tailored to fit your looks, lifestyle...and this century!

  • Toner is a commonly used hair product when coloring your hair, especially for blondes. It is a liquid often added to lightened or color-treated hair to soften color (such as a brassy or orangey blonde shade). Different than hair color which completely alters the pigment of your strands, toner adjusts a color favorably.    
  • A bang or fringe is the shorter hair covering many a forehead. It can have a sharper line or a soft, feathered look. It often needs to be trimmed more frequently than the rest of the head of hair (since its much more obvious). We offer free bang trims in-between your haircuts.
  • A beveled hair cut is a softer blunt cut with a little curve in it, giving it a softer overall appearance. Talk to one of our stylists to see if a beveled haircut is right for you.
  • Simply put, an asymmetric cut is where one side is cut shorter than the other. An angular, stylish cut, it highlights the bone structure of the face. Our stylists provide stylish, clean asymmetric cuts at our Montreal salon.
  • Balayage is a hand-painted highlighting technique that provides a natural look, sun-kissed look. Many prefer the balayage technique to the traditional cap/foil technique which can seem a bit more artificial in comparison. There are a variety of balayage types including: ombre, sombre, reverse balayage, dip-dyed hair (no gradient), tortoiseshell (also called ecaille) and color melt. We offer all types of balayage at our Montreal salon, including the latest trends found on Instagram.
  • Base color simply means your natural color. It is a term used by colorists who use your base color as part of their color scheme.
  • You know that natural wave and texture your hair takes on after a day at the beach? We recreate that windblown, tousled look at our salon using a variety of techniques including specialized hair products to take home with you so you can look as beach-touched at home.
