For anyone traveling or looking for great hair while in Dubai, Belle Femme salon is the place to be. With two locations in Dubai, Belle Femme is host to an array of traveling celebrity hair colorists and stylists as well as a great in-salon team of professionals. The salon recently won the “Best of Dubai” award under the L’Oreal Expert Series.
When we visited, the salon was PACKED. Women flew in from all over the middle east for an appointment with the amazing hair duo Jen Atkin and Tracey Cunningham. We were enamored by the woman’s patience, gratitude, and overall positive demeanor. Dubai is host to an array of international inhabitants. During our trip, we met woman from Ireland, the UK, the US, the Philippines, India, and Kuwait.
So what kind of hairstyles did we find in Dubai? Surprisingly, nothing too different from LA. These beautiful woman came in with long, gorgeous hair to begin with, but most of them were open to cutting it off! The mid-length cut is having a huge moment right now, as well as those honey blonde highlights that aren’t going anywhere. We loved the amazing transformations on these woman. See a few below.
During our visit, we stayed at the Vida Hotel in Downtown Dubai. The hotel was beautiful, with an amazing and hospitable staff. Breakfast overlooked the cabana and pool, with an extravagant display of the freshest fruits, vegetables, imported honeys, breads, coffees, teas, and pastries. Our room had a unlikely view of the city, with a strip of palm trees and twinkling lights. On our first night there we were lucky enough to have the most amazing meal at Le Serre, an upscale French restaurant located at the ground floor of the hotel. If you are ever lucky enough to visit Dubai, we highly suggest this restaurant, our mouths are still drooling thinking about it!
