Need A New ‘Do? The UAE’s Top Hairstylists Are Coming Together To Raise Funds For Beirut

The UAE's hairdressing community is coming together to support those affected by the recent explosion in Beirut and you can help participate by getting a chic new hair-do.

Award-winning stylists and based in Abu Dhabi and Dubai are joining forces to raise money for those in need for an event from August 29 to August 31; clients can book appointments from 10:00 to 18:00.

Coordinating the event is Natalie Kasses, L’Oreal International Ambassador. “As we have all looked on helplessly and have had so many clients sitting in our chairs sharing the experiences of their family and friends, we wanted to help. The initiative came together from a community desire to take action and help the people of Beirut during this hardship,” she says.

“The EIDEAL HQ in Beirut was completely decimated by the explosion but thankfully all our colleagues, families and friends escaped and were completely safe,” says Haysam Eid, Managing Director of EIDEAL.

“But we have total empathy for the people of Beirut who lost not just businesses and homes but loved ones. We really wanted to do something to show our support and that our thoughts and prayers are with them at this difficult time, so we were more than willing to offer the use of the EIDEAL Academy for this event.”

Based in various top hair salons within the UAE, rom the likes of Pastels Salon to Chalk Hair Salon, stylists are offering wash, cut and blow-dry packages or wash and blow-dry packages for clients.

All proceeds donated towards providing essential aid to the Lebanese Red Cross efforts in rebuilding Beirut after it was devastated by an explosion on August 4.

All appointments must be pre-booked to ensure social distancing guidelines are followed.
