Now let's back up a bit to my post on New Year's Eve 2013, where I blogged about how ridiculously hard it was to find a good salon that I felt attached to. Ever since, I've been on the lookout for a place that does great hair and guess what? Ever since I let Gloss Salon and Spa work their magic on me, I bagged lots of compliments. Not only that, I love the fact that my hair stayed as it was styled until I washed it out!!!
I walked into Gloss, conveniently located at Marriott Executive Apartments, Juffair and found myself welcomed by the staff. I had an appointment with Nabil, the hair dresser and he asked me what kind of service I wanted. Now I'm usually very particular about the look I want when I decide to get my hair done, but looking at Nabil and the confidence he exuded, I let him decide. He suggested hair color and I was thrilled because I've never had my hair professionally colored, ever. I've only experimented during school days and obviously that was a disaster!
Moving on, Nabil explained the difference between low-lights and highlights and when we had established that low lights were more suitable for me, I even let him pick the color! He started off by preparing my hair and the dye, then sectioning my hair that the color would cover. The sectioning was done so that the low lights are not very obvious and in-your-face. After about 30 minutes with lots of foil in my hair and waiting and watching Nabil style an Arab woman's hair into a gorgeous voluminous crop hairdo, May was ready to wash out the dye and prep me for, and I quote "The best hairdo of my life".If you guys follow me on Instagram, you would know how much I love to curl my hair! Anyway, Nabil styled my hair so beautifully that I felt like a superstar! My hair was glossy and stayed put until I washed it a day later.It was unlike any other loose curls I've ever sported. It even broke my heart when I had to wash my hair.
Needless to say, I ended up loving the place, my new hair and the professionalism of the staff. What I love even more is that it's pocket friendly!
