The salon was started ten years ago by Enzo Giarratano, who originates from Turin, Italy. He is a graduate of the Vidal Sassoon Academy and is now the senior hairdresser at the salon. Enzo's wife Onelia also works at the salon as a specialist in extensions and straightening. She is from Rome. She has invented her own procedure for applying extensions to Afro-Caribbean hair. The salon sources hair from Europe, Russia and India to use in its extensions. The salon offers two methods for hair straightening. The Brazilian Keratin treatment uses inoar oil. The process of applying the oil takes between one-and-a-half and four hours. This varies according to the length and texture of the customer's hair. The hair is then treated with a hot iron which seals moisture into it. The effects of this treatment last from two to four months. The Yuko System, which is also known as Japanese Straightening, uses a combination of collagen, keratin and silk proteins. These are applied to the hair to enhance its appearance. A variety of hair extension products are available from Ocean, including Racoon, Cinderella Hair and Balmain Paris. The salon also has various products for sale. These can be purchased online for delivery to anywhere in the UK.
