New to Dubai? Living in Dubai Marina? Looking for a hairdresser who you can actually trust (and not be tearful after a cut or colour)? We got you. Here, The Gaggler rounds up the best hair salons in Dubai Marina and surrounding areas.
Crown Beauty Salon
Thanks to the heat, the beach, and showers with high-mineral water, your hair may need some extra TLC. Luckily, Crown Beauty Salon specialises in hair therapy and keratin hair masks – the perfect thing for shiny, healthy hair.
Crown Beauty Salon, Ground Floor Marina Views, Dubai Marina, 04 240 6342, open 9am-9pm daily
Hair Concept Salon
Calling all brides-to-be! Boasting highly qualified hair stylists, this is the perfect place to book for any updo styling. Simply bring a few reference images and watch the hair magicians at work.
Hair Concept Salon, JA Ocean View Hotel, Dubai Marina, 04 452 8031, open 10am-9pm daily
Jacques La Coupe
If you’re looking for the perfect colourist with a touch of luxury and elegance to boot, Jacques La Coupe is the salon to visit. Just be sure to have a discussion beforehand to make sure the price is specified before starting to ensure you don’t get any nasty surprises at the end.
Jacques La Coupe, 66 Al Marsa, Dubai Marina, 04 445 8381, jacqueslacoupe.com, open 10am-10pm daily
Marquee Hair Salon
Marquee may be a little bit on the pricey side, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. And trust us, it applies here! We trust them with our (hair) life, from a complete transformation to essential touch-ups. We couldn’t recommend Marquee more.
Marquee, Marina Gate (opposite Spinneys), Dubai Marina, 04 589 5943, marquee.ae, open 8am-10pm daily
Located five minutes out of Dubai Marina in JBR, the OG-for-British-expats Pastels Salon is the salon to visit and feel like you have stepped into a London salon thanks to the British hairstylists. It’s also one of the few hair salons with a mix of male and female staff, all of whom are super professional.
Pastels Salon, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, JBR, 04 399 5016, pastels-salon.com, open 9am-7pm Thurs – Tue, 9am-9pm Mon & Wed
Queens Beauty Lounge
Looking for a last-minute blowout? Queens has been our lifesaver many, many times! Although we don’t recommend heading there without a booking, we have been in this bind before, and the team has graciously accommodated our request and in less than 30 minutes. Et voilà! A fresh blowout in a hurry, done.
Queens Beauty Lounge, Oceanic Tower shop #5, Dubai Marina, 04 427 9689, queensbeautylounge.com, open 9am-8pm Mon – Sat, 11am-9pm Friday, closed on Sun
Technically not in Dubai Marina, but close enough, Salon 971 is the best salon to head to for Hair Botox and the coolest hair colour trend ever: balayage. We are huge fans of balayage and love the fact that it looks great with any face shape. We also adore that Salon 971 is open weekdays at 7:30am, perfect for the working woman looking to get a cut and colour before work!
Salon 971, Platinum One Tower, Al Barsha, 04 579 6222, salon971.com, open 7:30am-9pm Mon – Thurs, 9am-6pm Fri – Sun
