Rossano Ferretti Dubai | New, chic Italian Hair Spa that offers world-class cuts at affordable prices. If it’s good enough for Kate Middleton, then it’s good enough for us Dubai girls.
Disaster strikes again. Such a common thought when I’m leaving a hair salon in Dubai. So many bad cuts combined with average blow drys and disappointing colour, until now. . .
“Ours is a timeless style, and it reveals every woman’s natural beauty.”
I certainly have a list of carefully selected, approved salons around Dubai but I can’t deny, the list is small. In fact, I could probably count the number of good experiences I’ve had on one hand. With that said, I have another salon to add to my ‘approved’ list, Rossano Ferretti Dubai Hair Spa. Ladies, get booking.
On entry, it’s hard not to be impressed by the sleek, contemporary decor and the warm welcome from the beautifully dressed reception staff. From past experiences, when salons are as chic as this one, the hostess’ can be, whats the word, a tad “snooty” but this wasn’t the case at Rossano Ferretti Dubai Hair Spa.
The salon has a variety of exquisite treatments, delivered in equally beautiful treatment rooms; nail spa, dedicated facials as well and a private VIP room for the customer who wants a little more privacy. And of course, there is the main hair salon, where the real magic happens.
My Hair Experience
B E F O R E
My lovely hair stylist, Yana (‘Method Director’) introduced herself to me and we had a good chat about what we wanted to achieve during the session. She was incredibly professional and listened to everything I had to say and also offered her opinion in a pleasantly unassertive way. What I mean by that, is she asked me to be realistic when approaching the cut. To be quite honest, I can be quite unreasonable when negotiating cuts, especially when it comes to length as I’ve had so many terrible experiences of stylists cutting up to six inches when we agreed to cut only two! Yana listened to my hair horror stories, one after another and she assured me that she’d only cut what was needed, and that’s what she did. Hamdullah.
We started with colour. Before Yana started her magic I had brassy, ‘washed out’ hair, which I hated. I’m sure that ladies can sympathise with the issue of keeping hair colour fresh in Dubai – the hard water and constant sun is not the best recipe for hair. I wanted healthy, dark brown hair, worthy of a L’oreal hair commercial (“because I’m worth it”) and that’s what Yana gave me. Some parts of my hair didn’t take to the colour as well as others so she made sure to repeat some of the processes until it was perfect.
Perfect colour, tick.
Now, let’s talk cut. Rossano Ferretti is famous for the ‘Method’ style of cut aka one of the most innovative hair cutting techniques in the world. A cut with Ferretti himself would set you back around 5,000 AED, however, a cut with the highly-trained stylists is more affordable, circa 500 AED. Of course, it’s always interesting to know that celebrities like Kate Middleton, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lawrence also opt for what is also knows as the “invisible cut” (in summary: it involved specially designed texturizing scissors that cut up to 18% of hair, unlike traditional scissors that cut up to 30%). If this perfected style of cutting couldn’t make me happy, then I don’t know what would.
Yana was completely upfront from the start and said that she would like to cut at least three inches to achieve a healthy sleek look, otherwise the ends of my hair would remain to look broken and unhealthy. It’s fair to say that the ends of my hair did look awful and I hadn’t been for a hair cut in over six months or more (don’t judge, I have hair anxiety) so I trusted her and went with her suggestion and was totally glad that I did. My hair still felt thick afterwards and I had no issues styling it myself. Even though Yana cut three inches of hair, it didn’t feel like she’d cut as much. She kept my layers long (like I asked), she blended the cut (like I asked) and she kept as much length as she possibly could (like I asked). Can you believe it? A stylist that listens and knows what she’s doing available in Jumeirah. Ladies, someone has answered our prayers.
I have no doubt that the other stylists at Rossano Ferretti Dubai are just as wonderful. When my hair was soaking up the colour I had the privilege of witnessing another stylist working with a customer. Like Yana, she listened to what the customer had to say and just as professional when offering her opinion. Needless to say, the customer’s hair looked beautiful and once they’d finished it sounded like all parties were extremely happy (stylist and customer). So it’s definitely not just me that’s offering ‘A’ class reviews.
