Toni & Guy have just opened their third salon in Dubai at Dukes Hotel, Palm Jumeirah, and I headed down for a much needed hair cut.
If you know me you’ll know that long hair is my ‘thing’. I’ve never, ever had anything other than waist-length, straight, blonde hair. I’m really unadventurous when it comes to new ‘dos and will avoid any kind of extensions, colouring or wacky styles, so this was a big step for me. I walked in to the sparkly salon in Dubai’s newest five star, beach-front hotel, I took my hair down from its four day old bun and even I was shocked.
Four days of no brushing, no washing, a bit of swimming and a good hour of extremely sweaty yoga meant I was met with the most matted mane, bordering on dreadlocks. It was time for a chop. Once we’d given it a good condition, a healthy spritz of Label.m’s Protein Spray and finally managed to get a comb all the way through, Aidan (my hair dresser – totally recommend) took to my tresses with the scissors.
Now, it may not look that short to you, but we actually took about five/six inches off, and this is the shortest my hair has ever been in my entire life. We decided to jazz it up with some beach waves, which really pulled the whole look together. (Top top: if your hair is as poker straight as mine, make sure to use some Texturing Volume Spray, Volume Mousse and a good dose of hair spray.)
Short(ish) hair is so new to me, and I’m really surprised at how much I LOVE it! Thank you Toni & Guy!
