Check out new arty beauty salon SoH Dubai for a blow-dry, hair stencil and nail art
The promise The creative space operates as both an art gallery and beauty salon and offers everything from exquisite nail art to blow-dries and spray-on hair stencils.
Step by step The salon has a street vibe and is unlike any we’ve been to. Staff are kitted out in oversized sports jerseys and graffiti-sprayed high-top Converse. The interior features white brickwork, high ceilings and colourful pop art, all of which is available to buy. The host introduces us to our Italian hair stylist, Anna, and she washes our tresses at the basin, before we decide on finger curls to finish the blow-dry. A small purple heart will then be sprayed onto our undercut. As Anna tends to our hair, the nail artist gets to work on our hands, using a teeny tiny brush to apply the blue and white fine china pattern. Anna curls our hair and pins it to leave it to cool, before spraying.
The result We’re impressed with the detail in the nail art and Anna did a great job at executing the retro look we wanted, even though the curls drop quite soon after. There’s a lot going on with the purple heart stencil, it’s not an everyday look, but perfect for a special occasion.
