Meanwhile, new Western-run hair salon SLaM (800 7626), has just opened in Al Quoz, with owner and former Chill hairstylist Rachel Stevenson at the helm. Located in the Al Joud Centre, within walking distance of the city’s number one foodie stop Tom & Serg, the salon features exposed brick and suspended mirrors and is a convenient addition for Al Barsha and Umm Suqeim residents.
Lastly, over-achieving Venice Beach import Gold’s Gym UAE is expanding its services with the opening of in-house pampering facility I Am Spa (04 385 1151) inside the venue at Al Barsha Mall. Ideal for gym junkies who are on the go, the unisex spa offers standard treatments, including aromatherapy massage and Thalgo express facials, as well as classic mani-pedis and wash and blow-dries.
