Another day, another salon opening. Such is the Dubai story that never tires – luckily for us, we’re always more than happy to sample the latest on the beauty scene. Bedashing Beauty Lounge, located in City Walk is the second branch to open in Dubai, the first being in Mirdif and now in the lovely tree-lined complex where all the best fashionistas flock to. I had a choice. A terrible notion when it comes to beauty – too much choice, too many gorgeous eventualities, too much stress. However, I was asked to choose two treatments in honour of the official opening, so I went for your classic manicure and a Fusio Dose hair treatment. The former, an intimate acquaintance, the latter, unchartered territory.
To say I have problem hair would be a disservice to my highly malleable (if a bit limp) straight (with a slight enviable beach-style curl) hazel locks. I can pretty much do anything with it – my hair dresser unclenches every time I pay him a visit – I’m an eyes closed, easy fix.
Bedashing Salon offer a rich variety of treatments, from your fast and effective manicures and pedicures to more luxurious experiences like a Caviar hands and feet treatment.
Lovely blooms make Bedashing Beauty Lounge a relaxing retreat
The Fusio Dose hair treatment essentially gives your hair a glow using Kérastase products, which combines highly concentrated care formulas with powerful boosters for custom-designed results after leaving in a concentrated conditioner for 10-15 minutes after a thorough wash, for your primary hair needs followed by a brilliant booster for your secondary hair needs. Combing through my hair bugbears, it appeared I had oily roots and dry ends – the oiliness was down to the fact that I was on an alternate hair wash day (the struggle is so real) and the roots, well, I’m due a trim.The chair is an experience in itself. Swively, sumptuous and full of seamless gadgetry to make you horizontal at a feather tap of a button. Reader, note: I was more than pressed for time, I told the technicians I had 30 minutes to spare. Without a flinch, they went at it, fully composed and professional. The scratchy scalp massage was super satisfying and relaxing, the products came thick and fast, my nails were tended to with a jet black Essie polish – very ‘she means business’ – and within a flash, I was done.
