Time Out Says

Jacques Hanna, the man behind the brand, is based at the Address Dubai Marina branch and juggles his time between the VIP private rooms and the main salon itself, checking in on each client and overseeing his team of stylists. He’s extremely friendly, but very humble – the lack of ego is both pleasant and admittedly – considering his client list – unexpected. Hanna spends about seven minutes studying each section of our hair before deciding what to do. A team of two assistants prepare the four different colours he decides to use, while he talks us through which areas of our hair need to be lighter and which darker, with reference to our natural skin tones. His aim is to deliver a natural colour blend that looks both modern and fresh.

Balayage, in which Hanna specializes, is an old freehand technique, painting colour onto the hair with soft strokes, and has become one the most popular trends in colouring in recent years. Foil can still be used as a wall for the brush to stroke the hair onto, but this application is very different to traditional highlights. The colour is not applied all the way to the root, however the technique lasts longer than a usual colour application (you’ll have none of the usual root regrowth to battle with mere weeks after your last visit to the salon).

The end result is a bespoke head of colour, created especially for you. The combination of multiple colours applied in a unique way means that no two looks ever seem the same. This style grows out beautifully and more naturally, so regrowth lines are not obvious and you can leave it longer between appointments. And don’t be surprised if you get stopped by people asking who did your hair…

From Dhs1,200 for a colour, cut and blow-dry.
