With the hectic festive period spent party-hopping - and eating, my skin and hair took a toll. A few of the experiences I've tried have done wonders to get it back to looking great. Below are a few tried and tested treatments and choice pick of salons I'd like to share which might help you nail it over the festivities and make you look glam when you hit the New Year's party circuit.

For Nails - Ringing in 2018 requires a little more fanfare than your usual mani- pedi. Whether you gravitate towards glitter, prefer nail art, Gel/Acrylic or metallics, the one salon that I blindly trust for the best in mani/pedi and nails is Tips and Toes Middle East. I recently went in for a Pedicure (AED 90) and Gel Rebalance (AED 185)  with a junior technician at the Business Bay branch.The technician might not be as experienced as the master but she left me with fingers and toes to do the talking. Highly recommend this space for all your nail needs.


For Skin - To beat the winter woes of dryness and cracking we all need some extra hydration and care. I tried the 'Hydra Facial' from Skin III, which is a newly opened high-end boutique skin space at DIFC Costing AED 750, this facial is carried out by professional beauty experts using advanced equipments and infusing serums that boost vitamins and essential moisture into the skin. In just half an hour sitting this is one treatment that was absolutely result driven. I left with visibly smoother, glowing and supple skin. Highly recommend this treatment for all skin types. SKIN III offers an extensive portfolio of advanced surgical and medical aesthetic complimented by premium laser or non invasive beauty treatments to both male and female guests in a contemporary spa like environment.


For Hair - I tried out the Deep Conditioning treatment, Cut and Blow dry at Studio 91, a newly opened upscale salon providing leading edge hair care at DIFC. Studio 91 hair experts are one of the finest I've been to in the city, offering bespoke treatments/cut/styling whist complimenting it with outstanding customer service (Elegant cafe menu, sophisticated interiors, high-end products) Just watching the professional cut my hair using special techniques , I was fully convinced that they were highly skilled and trained. The deep conditioning treatment left my dry/ brittle hair strong and lustrous. This definitely proves to be a go-to solution for discerning fashionistas in search of creative cut, color and treatment. Guaranteed to impress!!
