Maria Dowling: Maria is known across town as one of the best, and rightly so. Just make sure you book well ahead to get your preferred stylist.
Salon Ink: Not the easiest of places to find, but worth the mission. Great colours and, unusually, if you say you only want a “tiny bit off the ends” that’s what you’ll get.
Toni & Guy: If you’re a bit of a scaredy cat, get booked in here. Whether it’s maintenance, or a restyle, you’re usually pretty safe.
Pretty Lady: Not a lot of people know this, but Pretty Lady do pretty amazing blowdries – especially if you’ve got an unruly barnet.
Nirvana Spa: If you’re after a bit of advice, and you need forcing to have your hair trimmed, even when you don’t think it needs it, Nirvana’s for you. The experienced stylists will have you back on the straight and narrow in no time.
Top Style Salon: Known as one of Dubai’s best spots for a blowdry, Top Style also does a pretty nice line in highlights.
Zouari:If you’re prepared to shell out some serious cash, the colourists in here are miracle workers. You’ll always get a safe pair of hands.
The Haven: Tucked away in a residential area of Jumeira 1, near Orthosports, you’d never stumble across this place as it’s mostly known for massages. Weirdly, they also do pretty good blowdries.

i had recently gone to Juice for the first time. my sister had an appointment there. they gave advice as to what she should do with her hair and the hair cut was very minimalism as according to them she needs to repair the last haircut first. All thought i dint see any difference on her hair,she seemed happy. but with reference to staff and waiting time , i do agree with the above comments. i have been to couple of saloons in Dubai and Juice customer care was the worst. the attitude of the staff was horrible. ant they made us wait forever even though the stylist appointed for my sister was simply sitting and yapping there. probably one of the most unprofessional saloons i have been in duba

I have just had my birthday totally ruined thanks to Akhlas at Sera salon in Media City.
Akhlas did not listen to how I wanted my hair cut and I have come home and straightened it myself thanks to the horrible unmanageable curly style she gave me. I did not see so much as a smile from her, nor any sign of consideration for how I wanted to hair done on my special day. The layers are not even symmetrical and I will be going elsewhere to fix this.
She was not delicate when doing my waxing and my arms were not even fully done, I have had to come home and use some wax strips on myself in parts where she missed.
The only praise I have for the place is for the lovely manicurist Marivic who did my nails beautifully and was so pleasant and cheerful to chat to.
Regardless of their 50% offers, this should not mean that a stylist is rude, pushes you around and makes you feel uncomfortable in a place where you are paying to come and be pampered. Perhaps there are other better stylists there but if you are looking for a relaxed stylist who listens to what their client wants, then do not go to Akhlas.

I completely disagree with what Neha had commented with Juice Salon Dubai. I have been their client for the past 7 years and yes sometimes I have been made to wait for an acceptable reasons, but then there are occasions that i am not on time for my appointment but they always have accommodated me even when the salon is super busy. All the staff have done great job. They are super friendly and very professional. I cannot see myself going to other salon other than Juice Salon Dubai!
