In Dubai: Just over a year
Modus operandi: He stays up to date on style and says his forte is ‘a classic bob with timeless lines, yet with a modern twist’.
Top hair tips: ‘When tying your hair up in a ponytail, use a bobble without a metal clasp – they can snap the hair.’
Celeb hair inspiration: ‘Sienna Miller, she pulls off any hair style and has great bone structure.’
Favourite product range: Kérastase
Time Out tries…
Consultation: Brian listened to what we were looking for and made several helpful suggestions, explaining his reasoning thoroughly (dye the roots to eliminate the chemical build-up from previous dye jobs; add layers to make our hair swish). We felt very well informed.
Chat: He had plenty of good gab, and we walked away with a slew of book suggestions and some insider celebrity gossip.
Atmosphere of salon: There’s no in-salon distractions apart from a pile of magazines, but Brian proved entertainment enough.
Result: We were a little scared when he started to snip away at the front of our hair, but the new layers won us over. The colour is perfect and the semi-permanent dye makes it gloriously glossy.
A cut with Brian costs Dhs350; a full colour is Dhs400 and a full head of highlights is Dhs500. Saks Salon, The Palace Hotel, Downtown Burj Khalifa (04 430 8572).
