The 'Blow Dry Bar' by Marquee in Dubai
Pull up a pew
With two already traditional and established signature salons – one at Eastern Mangroves Promenade, Abu Dhabi, and at the Arabian Ranches Golf Club, Dubai – Marquee has rolled out a new dedicated 'blow dry bar' concept, conveniently located in the wealthy Emirates Hills area.
It offers a smart and chic one-stop style session for those in a rush and en route to their evening plans, promising to get its clients good-to-go in just 45 minutes. It's refreshingly far from being a stressful and loud chore to get through (as can so often be the case in Dubai), and in reality the Marquee Blow Dry Bar provides quite the opposite experience.
Staying true to its name, there is a menu-type range of named 'looks' to select from when it comes to choosing a blow dry or braid style, some inspired directly by Hollywood stars old and new. It's a thoughtful touch, and another fitting element to the concept – considering it was silently playing the 1956 classic War and Peace starring Audrey Hepburn during a recent visit by Buro 24/7 Middle East, whilst the appropriatly retro jazz soundtrack playing throughout the salon isn't too shabby either.
