While there’s nothing better than being pampered in a salon, the reality is we often don’t have the time to actually get ourselves there – and the weather outside hardly makes the trip more appealing. But before you give up on your beauty needs and let yourself go this summer, what if we told you that the best hairstylists, makeup artists, massage therapists, and nail technicians will come to your door at just the touch of the button? It might sound too good to be true, but you really can turn your living room into a salon with Savoir Flair’s pick of the best home beauty services in Dubai.
Boasting a portfolio of leading makeup artists, hairstylists, and nail technicians – hundreds, to be exact – Instaglam’s slick and easy-to-use app couldn’t make finding your perfect beauty match any easier. Simply download the app, click on the service you’re after (there are even options for brides and themed parties), browse through the talent’s portfolios, find whose style and aesthetic you like best, and book.
Created by Haifa Addas, who has worked with leading luxury brands like Giorgio Armani, L’Oréal, and Ralph Lauren, Instaglam is all about simplifying the glamour process by directly connecting customers with top beauty professionals. It even hosts monthly workshops in collaboration with big beauty brands (Clarins, Urban Decay, and Make Up For Ever included) during which you can learn everything from how to perfect your skincare routine to mastering the art of smoky eyes.
When it comes to a service that brings the best of a beauty salon and a spa straight to you, look no further than NBoutique. Looking to get a facial, a shellac mani, a glamorous updo, or even a last-minute wax? They’re all on offer. NBoutique also offers some of the best lash extensions in town and a full massage menu to tend to all of your post-work needs. If that wasn’t enough, its mobile spray tan unit uses 100 percent organic brand Naked Tan, so you’re guaranteed to look beautifully bronzed when it’s too hot for the beach.
With over seven years of experience tending to the beauty needs of women across the UAE, NBoutique was created by a modern woman for the modern woman. “I was juggling work and family, and had absolutely no time to drive to the salon and go through the hassle of searching for parking and getting stuck in traffic,” explains founder Futan Alherakey. “I wanted beauty services in quicker time – for myself and every other woman with a busy lifestyle.” And booking couldn’t be easier; simply call, WhatsApp, or book online.
