I’ve never written a review before so consider this post somewhat experimental. However, do note that these are my thoughts based on my experience and observations. This post is not sponsored.
I’m the type of person who loves trying new beauty salons and discovering the best of services for a reasonable price, so when I was invited to visit Zuri Beauty Lounge, I instantly jumped at the chance. The salon is located in the newly opened The Mall just across Jumeirah Beach Hotel which is really easy to find. I went there on a Sunday evening so the parking outside the mall was a breeze.
Since I’ve already visited many beauty salons across Dubai over the years, I went to Zuri Beauty Lounge without high expectations. All I wanted was to enjoy my time getting my mani-pedi done and my hair blow-dried and step out feeling happy after being pampered by a beauty therapist.
When I arrived in front of the salon, I was greeted by two friendly staff at the reception. Upon giving them my name, both of their faces lit up indicating that they have been expecting me – mind you, I came on time 😛 given that I was visiting for the first time, I was asked to fill up their form and was offered some drinks. I asked for a glass of water. Room Temperature, please. One of the ladies slid the door behind her open and I was then led inside their magic chamber where all things beauty happens.
The interior of the salon had a relaxed and chilled feel to it – the walls were painted mint green which remarkably made me feel homey. The floors were sparkling-clean and the beauticians seemed cheery.
The hairdresser came up to me and introduced herself as Su (not sure how it’s spelled, sorry) and asked how she may be of service to me. I told her I just wanted to have my hair blow-dried and if she could add a bit of volume to it. She briefly examined my hair and suggested that I have it shampooed and conditioned first to which I willingly obliged.
The shampoo-and-conditioning was accompanied with a rejuvenating head massage – the kind that made me wish it would never stop. After the swift 10-minute session, I was ushered into the salon chair, a tad bit to my dismay (I wanted more massage!). Su then started to unfold her flair on my hair.
Su is the lady in the middle! 🙂
Up next – manicure!
The nail specialist who worked her magic on my nails was a lady named Lydia. She was very skillful in what she does owing to her years of experience.
Her hands were gentle and I noticed that her manicure procedure was slightly different from the salon that I usually frequent to. She advised me not to trim my cuticles because it somehow protects my nails.
The nail polish that she used on my nails is called Vinylux Weekly Polish in pastel pink 🙂 I was informed that this polish lasts longer on the nails without even chipping. At the time of writing this post, my 4-day-old nail polish still looks good as new!
My overall experience with Zuri Beauty Lounge was great!
Would I visit again? Hail yeah. Next time, I’ll bring my mom 🙂
