This week: quick-fix beauty treatments, a celebrity hair stylist in Dubai and a new gravity-defying shaver for the gents.
Time-poor beauty addicts in search of the secret to eternal youth can now indulge in the most advanced beauty treatments on their lunch break with the new Quick-Fix treatment menu at Rebecca Treston @ Euromed (04 394 5422). Boasting zero downtime and predominantly pain-free results in less than an hour, the menu includes Spectra Laser to treat pigmentation and acne, Ultrasound Cavitation to target fat cells, mesotherapy and Viora Pristine Diamond Peel and Viora Infusion to help keep the skin looking firm, plump and fresh.
Coco Chanel once said ‘a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.’ If you’re in the market for a totally new look, you should book in with visiting celebrity stylist Mario Charalambous, who is visiting Pastels Salon (04 399 5016) at the end of this month. As technical director of London’s Richard Ward salon, Mario tends to the tresses of A-listers including the Duchess of Cambridge and is bringing his expert techniques to Dubai from Monday November 24 to Wednesday November 26.
Lastly, Philips (04 352 1323) has unveiled its latest electric shaver, the Shaver series 9000, which features special contour technology allowing the rotating shaving heads to flex in eight different directions to follow the contour of the face. Having teamed up with commercial space travel experts XCOR Space Expeditions, Philips has even tested the shaver in a zero gravity environment, proving that men can get the smoothest shave in even the most extreme conditions. And even in space.
