My majestic daily life : Getting pampered at Turkuaz House

December 2, 2013

It’s a very festive and eventful week for Dubai which included a very long weekend. I got 5 days off. I must admit, I love this country! To prepare for the celebrations and the numerous outings that were planned, I went down to a new salon in town called Turkuaz House.

I’ve heard about this salon through twitter and instagram before. It offers a variety of services going from turkish hammams to mani/pedis to facials to blow-dries to makeup. The list can go on and on. 
I was first warmly welcomed at the entrance and lead to a cosy waiting room before hitting the manicure station. Different nail polish brands were available a part from Essie which is a bit of a change compared to all the salons in Dubai. I’m quite happy with the shade I chose. In the spirit of the coldish weather – not so cold this week – I went for OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark, a colour that I’ve never picked up before. During the manicure, they gave me headphones to distract me with a Nicholas Cage movie. I find that it’s a great idea especially when the process takes time. The final product was flawless. I didn’t think the nail polish colour would end up as black. I expected a bit of bordeaux to pop out, but that’s fine. I wasn’t able to take pictures of the manicure station as there were other clients getting their nails done. Sorry!

Then I went to get my hair done and asked for natural looking curls/waves. The stylist started by straightening the curly mess on my head. And then, with a large curling iron, she curled up my hair beautifully. The blow-dry lasted quite a while for the frizzy hair that I’ve got. Although I wish I had told her to tease my hair a bit to add extra oomph to it. Here’s a picture of the hair that I posted on instagram right after the beautifying session.

The ambiance was lovely, very calm and quiet. I walked out of the salon with polished fingertips and big bouncy hair. Perfect start for a long weekend, eh? Another great salon in Dubai that I definitely recommend. Thank you Turkuaz House for kindly inviting me. 

What were you up to this weekend? Have you ever been to Turkuaz House?
