“We’re banishing bad hair days for good! Maintaining healthy hair while making you look great is our number one priority.” SWISH by Immaclife
There’s a new blow dry bar in Abu Dhabi and it’s a rather swish place to be pampered. Recently opened at Al Hadeel, the new residential community at Al Bandar in Raha Beach, SWISH by Immaclife is your one stop salon for blow drys (or blow outs as you may know them), hair styling including updos, brows, lashes, and professional make-up application for any occasion.
The bijou homegrown salon, owned by Welsh expat Kelly Ryan, is a glamorous affair with a fabulous sea view. Its modern decor and fashionable accessories like oversized mirrors, Chanel coffee table books and the sweetest smelling Diptyque candles all add to its overall stylish ambiance.
Alongside the blow drys, hair styling and keratin treatments there’s also eyebrow threading, tinting and temporary strip lashes application. Professional make-up services are available for all occasions, from the subtle day to more glamorous evening looks, using an array of high-end well known brands.
Divided into different areas, the light-filled compact space is certainly well utilized but there’s no bathroom onsite so factor that into your pre-visit planning. SWISH uses only high-end products; the Dyson Supersonic fast drying hair dryer that’s designed to protect hair from extreme heat damage and is perfect for controlled styling and the beautifully packaged Italian Davines hair products.
Davines is an ethical brand that combines scientific research with the highest-quality natural ingredients to offer a range of paraben-free shampoos, conditioners, treatments, hair masks, styling products and oils designed to revitalize and protect the hair. All SWISH clients receive a free hair consultation and based on that analysis specific Davines products are then used. A wide range of the trendy products are offered for sale to continue the recommended hair care at home (as an added bonus the contemporary designed bottles will brighten up your bathroom). A good hair care routine is especially important in the UAE when you take into consideration the heat, humidity and air conditioning that our locks are exposed to on a daily basis.
Staying close to her Welsh roots Ryan recruited her stylists from Wales and serves the most delicious caramel filled chocolate lips from Welsh chocolatier Cocoa Therapy with your complimentary beverage, trust me these sweet treats are worth a return visit alone.
SWISH charges a flat rate for a blow dry regardless of hair length or type and the salon is open daily from 8am – 10pm. The first walk-in client of the day receives a FREE blow dry, yes you read that right, EVERYDAY even at the weekend, the first customer to walk through the door gets a free service.
The glam squad at SWISH are ready and waiting to assist you for any occasion whether its a pre-brunch blow dry, bridal hair and make-up, a prom updo or you just fancy a bit of pampering. Sit back, relax and enjoy the view (and the chocolate lips) and prepared to get SWISHED.
