The Review

  • The Good

    Labelled as the 'Middle East's queen of colour', Mariadowling Salon Dubai is one of the best hair salons in Dubai for colour and cut. Boasting an internationally-trained team of hair colour specialists, choose from an array of natural looks or opt for a more standout, funky colour if you're feeling adventurous.

    Based at the Al Meena Residence in Al Mina, expect to find a number of services ranging from highlights and permanent colour to semi glossing, haircuts and blowdries. Professionalism and years of experience are just some of the things that'll keep you coming back to this Dubai hairdressers.

    We loved the modern décor and relaxing vibe of the place, elegantly decorated with chequered floors and high ceilings. Given that it was our first time there, we had to have a consultation before the colouring treatment to assess our hair type; this included a patch test, as well. The staff made us feel very comfortable and helped us set up our Wi-Fi as soon as we arrived.

    Our colourist was extremely experienced and paid attention to our requests. She even asked us how we usually wear our hair on a daily basis to make sure the colour would work. From our initial consultation to the styling and blow dry, we had the same stylist from start to finish.

  • The Bad
    Located at the very end of Jumeirah in Al Mina, we found the area quite unusual for such a trendy salon. It's not exactly somewhere you'd drive across town just for a blow-dry and its exterior definitely doesn't do it justice.

    It's worth noting that the salon closes on Fridays and also shuts at 6.30pm during the week, which aren't easy hours for those working full-time. This also makes Saturday appointments a little more difficult to come by.
  • The Tips
    The website has an online booking system, or alternatively you can book via the phone. You'll also find all the stylists listed on the website so you can select the one you feel most comfortable with during the booking process. The salon stocks a number of Maria Dowling hair products; these include brushes, straighteners, wands, and a hair and scalp detox clay treatment.

    If you're hoping to make an appointment with Maria herself, take note that it's extremely hard to come by; it's recommended to book up to six weeks in advance. We'd suggest always planning ahead to get the best time slot with your stylist.
