I am so excited about this blog post because for once, I actually have an answer for when someone asks me about my hair. I’ve lived my whole life here and finding a curly hairstylist in Dubai has been impossible. I’ve had some hair horror stories with folks who have tried to cut my hair, so much so, that it had been a whole year since I had a haircut and a few months since I’d had a colour retouch. I was terrified of getting my hair done but when I heard Kozma and Kozma was opening up in Dubai, I grew optimistic. They actually have a separate menu for curly hair and when I met them at their launch party, they seemed to know what they were talking about.
I’m really glad I waited for them to open up because my appointment at Kozma and Kozma was probably the best hair salon experience of my life. Their hair stylist Julia knew exactly what to do to fix my hair, she was extremely knowledgeable and generous with tips and tricks for taking care of my curls- listen, I am plotting strategies to make sure she never leaves this country. I highly recommend going to her, she was professional yet fun and very patient through out the entire process of my hair transformation.
I got a Curly Lesson Hydrate & Style session, which is basically a demonstration of their curly styling techniques (which has been doing wonders for my hair btw) and I also got a curly hair cut, Olaplex treatment and colour correction.
Here’s a little video about my experience, I’ve included clips of our appointment and feedback on their technique. If you don’t have time to watch it, there are photos below!
Julia put these clips in at my roots so that I get more volume as my hair dries, they sell these clips at the salon for AED 20 a box. I have to go back for a toning and Olaplex treatment as we’re working our way to the perfect shade of ash blonde without destroying my curls. Honestly, my curls have never looked so good, I am so happy with the end result! I definitely recommend checking them out if you have curly or wavy hair.
