LA-based hair stylists to the stars Negin Zand and Benjamin Mohapi are touching down in Dubai from March 9-15 for a series of appointments at Jet Set (050 298 8787). Renowned for her masterful Balayage technique (a method that involves freehand application of dye to give the hair natural sun-kissed colour), Negin Zand has worked on the tresses of hair envies Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Scarlett Johansson to name a few. While British-born Benjamin Mohapi has tended to the A-list locks of Emily Blunt, Matt Damon and Emma Stone. Jet Set is taking bookings now, so get in quick.
Meanwhile, Dubai’s pole fit scene is expanding by the minute, with two new venues offering the dance craze in the city. JLT-based Milan Pole Dance (www.milanpoledance.com) brings something new to the bag, offering not only choreographed pole fit classes, but flexy and contortion sessions, which focus on deep stretching and strengthening to help you become a lot more flexible.
Over in Jumeirah 3, Aussie dancer and self-confessed pole-a-holic Donelle Sweeting (050 595 6507) is offering pole fit and Burlesque classes out of her home studio. Her classes only ever have one student per pole, a rarity in this city, and you can expect her teaching style to be fun and good-humoured.
