Nationality: South African
In Dubai: One year
Modus operandi: ‘My specialty is definitely colour. Just by using the right techniques to suit skin tone and face shape my clients can experiment with an edgy but classy, natural and stylish look. My sole goal is to make them feel beautiful, which in return resonates as outward beauty.’
Top hair tips: ‘If you straighten your hair, always use heat protector; it can make such a difference.’
Celeb hair inspiration: ‘It’s got to be Jenifer Aniston, even now; the majority of my customers ask me for this cut.’
Favourite product range: Kerastase
Time Out tries..
Consultation: Excellent, she can tell that the last time our hair was cut they made the shape too blocky, and she knows exactly how to get the flow back.
Chat: She’s super easy to talk to, we discuss travelling and all the places we want to see, tips on how to get moisture into the hair and the best bits about Dubai.
Atmosphere of salon: Fresh, warm, simple yet elegant.
Result: A simple cut done really well, blow-drying was fast and efficient, and the finished result soft and silky hair.
A cut with Eldine costs Dhs220, and a full head of highlights costs Dhs450 for long hair. Roots Salon, Jumeirah, near Emirates Hospital (04 344 4040).
