After a busy few weeks, there is no better way to indulge in a little R&R than spending a few hours at a spa or salon. With an endless amount of options in Dubai, choosing the spot to spend your quiet hours can be challenging – however, I feel like I might have just found the solution to this puzzling problem.
With 6 branches pampering women in prime locations across Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sisters Beauty Lounge’s newest salon at Jumeirah Beach Residences in Dubai is by far my favourite spot to chill to date!
The stunning branch is quaint and cosy and is conveniently located just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the bustling beachfront of The Walk. From the private mani/pedi pods complete with Apple TV (YES TO NETFLIX!), speakers systems and TVs, to the hair-styling area with hair-washing stations, and gorgeous private treatment rooms – everything is sleek and stylish, decked out with artwork by Cate Parr.
With a range of treatments to choose from, the salon offers its signature hair, body, skin and nail treatments, including the new Hydracool Facial and the popular Russian Layering Eyelash Extensions. On this particular visit it was all about restoration, starting with nails and finishing with hair.
My mani/pedi of choice was the Margaret Dabbs treatment, a women who has created a range of ‘medical’ treatments using products that have achieved global cult status to illuminate otherwise tired and neglected hands and feet. Offering instantly visible results after just one treatment, the session uses organic emu oil for its anti-ageing, moisturising and healing properties. I was honestly so surprised how shiny my nails and how soft my feet were, a result not shown in your normal mani/pedi.
From there, I tackled my multicolored locks with the help of the super stylist. Helping to create the perfect shade of brown, the stylist delivered the best advice on colours suited for my own hair and lifestyle. The end result was better than expected, and after only 30mins in the chair (my colour had been applied during my mani/pedi – an effective use of time), it was time to go home.
My sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle in Dubai – Sisters JBR is definitely one to try this winter.
