  • Sisters Beauty Lounge.


Best lash extensions

Sisters Beauty Lounge, from Dh300. 04 339 8500,

“I love the look I get from Sisters — and the staff are fast, professional and always give great results!” — Maria

Best spa

Talise Spa, from 429. 04 453 0456

“The Talise Spa is absolutely amazing! It has a beautiful setting and consistently provides high-quality treatments. I especially loved the Gold Hammam — one of the best I’ve tried.” — Huda

Best spray tan

Xen-Tan at Pastels, full-body spray tan, Dh180. 04 388 3534/3397,

“I love the Xen-Tan spray tan at Pastels. I’ve tried others that are good too, but what sets Xen-Tan apart is that it fades naturally... There is no flakiness or yellowing of the skin, and it doesn’t smell as strong as other faux tan ranges.” — Sonam

Best hair salon

Maria Dowling, from Dh80. 04 345 4225,

“Maria is one of my favourite hairdressers in Dubai — she’s super-sweet, super-professional and you can always count on a high standard of service. My top treatment at the salon is the clay mask — it really exfoliates the scalp and leaves your head feeling squeaky clean!”

Best waxing

Salon Ink, from Dh40. 04 385 4402,

“Huge frothy cappuccinos complete with mini brownie, cosy treatment room, ridiculously comfy bed and a soft, squidgy pillow — I think this is the first time I’ve ever not wanted my wax to end. Super-quick, pain free, and actually relaxing — I wouldn’t go anywhere else.” — Frankie

Best threading

The Nail Spa, from Dh25. 600 54 4001,

“Of all the salons I’ve tried threading at, The Nail Spa was the only one that didn’t cause wounds or breakouts on my skin — something I always suffer from. They were very gentle and cautious.” — Najla

Best blow-dry

JetSet, from Dh105. 04 330 0886

“I love JetSet for its quick blow-dries. The staff always do exactly what I ask them to — which is great because so many other places style my hair the way they want!” — Samira
