Where: Sheikh Zayed Road, right over Lime tree cafe
The Salon: The largest salon in the Middle East (I say, could possibly be the largest salon in the world) being 30,000 square feet. They have different sections, which feels like different salons in one home specialised for different treatments. It really feels like it’s own world!
Service: I have never seen as many therapists in one salon – everyone is incredibly sweet too. The concept is all about express treatments – they get as many therapists to get the work done. I had 5 therapists working on me! (52 women can get their nails done at once and 46 for hair!)
Beauty brands: They use their own brands for everything – from Koko for nails and Keragen for hair. For facials, they use other brands like Nimue.
Atmosphere: Packed, women are constantly coming in and out of the salon.
What else is on the menu: Literally everything. Hair (everything hair), nails, Moroccan hammam, waxing, eyebrows, to facials.
Results: Lovely experience – Its a great place for quick treatments and pampering, especially if going with friends, last minute appointments and doing several apps at once. My only pointer was that I felt like the services could be better – everything was quick and straight to the point, but my hair could have had more volume and my nail art could have been more creative. I just wouldn’t go there for a tricky nail art or wedding hair, but rather day to day treatments.
