Dubai sees 4.7million tourists in Q1 International visitor figures are up 2% year-on-year, according to Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing. According to Dubai Tourism, there was a 7% increase in the number of Indian visitors to 617,000, which helped level out the 1% decrease in visitors from Saudi Arabia and an 8% decrease in tourists from the UK. Of the rest of the top 10 feeder markets, six place Oman saw a 4 percent reduction from Q1 2017, while visitors from the eighth place US rose by 2%. Nine placed Iran and tenth placed saw declines of 19 and 22%, respectively. From a regional perspective, Western Europe contributed 23% of all overnight visitors, compared to 17% each for South Asia and the rest of the GCC, 11% for the wider MEA region, 10% for North and Southeast Asia, and 10% from Russia, Eastern Europe and the CIS. “The first quarter of the year has yielded stable performance supporting strong growth for all adjacent sectors like hotels and airlines,” said Helal Saeed Almarri, the director general of Dubai Tourism. “We expect to build on this strong base of 4.7 million visitors, to accelerate momentum through the summer and beyond – on the back of our strategic investments, partnerships, and policy enablers that are geared to collectively drive strong growth in 2018.” Almarri added that a number of new attractions throughout Dubai are due to open later this year and are likely to increase the emirate’s attractiveness to potential visitors. At the end of March, Dubai’s hotel room inventory stood at 108,808 across 689 hotels and hotel apartments, representing year-on-year increases of four and 1%, respectively.

Nouveau Lashes awarded Queen’s Enterprise Award Nouveau Lashes has been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. Nouveau Lashes, which pioneered the natural lash lift with its LVL treatment, and also specialises in individual extensions, was recognised for its innovative treatments and wide international reach. Nouveau Lashes which is distributed by Blissology in the UAE, now trades across 52 countries around the world. Last year, Nouveau Lashes’ export performance contributed to a 41% increase in turnover. The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise is an awards programme for British businesses and other organisations that excel at international trade, innovation or sustainable development. The awards are among the most sought after for British businesses. Nouveau Lashes was co-founded by two of the UK’s leading permanent cosmetics artists, Bridgette Softley

and Karen Betts, who are passionate about helping people living with hair and lash loss conditions. Bridgette Softly said: “I am extremely proud that Nouveau Lashes has been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. As a business, we take great pride in developing world-leading training and products for the beauty industry. “We have seen rapid expansion both in our international markets and the UK, and so it is tremendously exciting that our business and its employees have been recognised with this prestigious award.”

Mindfulness for children emerges as key spa trend to counteract digital overload Spas are using yoga and mindfulness to help stressed-out and squareeyed kids to log off. A new US study points to the benefit of yoga and mindfulness being taught in schools. The study, published by the Dove Medical Press, assessed the impact of a yoga and mindfulnesss curriculum in an elementary school. Results suggested that yoga and mindfulness intervention could improve symptoms of anxiety among students. In addition, yoga and mindfulness and activities may facilitate stress management among elementary school students. Spas across the world are already reacting to the growing trend. The Six Senses group has just launched Grow With Six Senses, a programme for children incorporating the six dimensions

of wellness (social, environmental, physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual) to help kids can reconnect with nature and others around them. Programmes vary from resort to resort, but the idea is to introduce physical activities, yoga and mindfulness, local culture, sustainability and social experiences, plus tailor-made spa treatments. A diverse range of activities will be on offer, from making edible water bubbles to junior Zumba, there’s something to attract even the most reticent joiner. Elsewhere, Chia Laguna, Italian Hospitality Collection’s five-star family resort, has launched a series of Mini Mindfulness activities to encourage kids to relax and reconnect.

Young females are key customer group for boutique fitness market

A new report has revealed that women in their late 20s and early 30s are the key to growth for boutique fitness operators. The study, a joint venture between global online scheduling software Zingfit and ukactive, looked at trends from gym goers in New York, London, Los Angeles and Mexico City. Customer data from all four cities showed a clear gender bias towards female customers. New York and London had identical customer gender splits of 83% female and 17% male. Los Angeles’s gender distribution was similar, at 81% female but Mexico City stood out from the rest, with nearly one third of registered customers being male (32%). All four locations showed a big skew in the age distribution of their customers

towards the younger age groups, with each having less than 8% of customers in the 45-and-over bracket. In Mexico City, half of customers are aged 25-34, and a further 28% aged 15-24. In Los Angeles, the average age was nearly five years older than Mexico City, and the city also had the highest proportion of customers aged 35 or over. The report also looked at key differences in the most popular class times, with Mexico City having a much bigger percentage of pre-work bookings than any other city (40%). Lunchtime classes were popular in London, representing 17% of bookings, but less so elsewhere. New York, London and Los Angeles all showed two peak times: before work (5am-8am) and post-work (5pm-7pm). There were two distinct quiet periods across all cities – afternoon (2pm-4pm) and late evening (8pm-9pm). John Bogosian, founder and chief executive ofZingfit, commented: “Consumer attitudes in the UK are changing rapidly – a growing number of group fitness concepts and inspirational brands have emerged to meet this rising group of consumers. British boutique fitness is leading the way when it comes to brands with high-touch customer engagement - New York, Miami, LA and Sydney you have been warned!”

Global sales of colour cosmetics expected to reach US$ 48.3bn in 2018

According to new research from Mintel, sales are predicted to grow 6% from US$ 45.5bn in 2017.

Across the globe, the top five colour cosmetics markets in 2018 are forecast to be: the US (US$ 12.1bn), Japan (US$ 6.4bn), China (US$ 5.1bn), the UK (US$ 2.7bn) and South Korea (US$ 2.2bn). According to Mintel, 41% of Chinese colour cosmetics users are influenced by celebrity beauty bloggers and vloggers to buy products, while 66% of UK women aged 16-24 say it’s easy to learn new beauty techniques from the internet.

One&Only to debut Urban Resorts in Dubai with ‘spa that never sleeps’ Kerzner International Holdings, the owner of One&Only Resorts, has plans to introduce a new line of One&Only Urban Resorts, the first of which will debut in Dubai in 2020. The One&Only Za’abeel will be set in the new One Za’abeel, which is being developed by Ithra Dubai, a subsidiary of Investment Corporation of Dubai. The two-tower, high-rise, mixed-use development of One Za’abeel will be positioned at the intersection of the old and new business districts of Dubai, and will also be home to luxury residences, serviced apartments, and office spaces, as well as a retail area and a panoramic sky concourse, The Linx, which connects the two towers of One Za’abeel. A ‘statement swimming pool’ will be installed on the top of The Linx, offering 360-degree views of Dubai, as well as a ‘spa that never sleeps’. “There is a duality to One Za’abeel,



reflected in its two towers, that evokes pairings,” said Mohammed I. Al Shaibani, chair of Kerzner International and executive director and CEO of Investment Corporation of Dubai. “Timeless elegance with function, efficiency with leisure, tradition with modernity, inclusion and privacy. “The paired concepts come together where The Linx traverses the towers, offering all those who get in touch with One Za’abeel one complete, bespoke, and very individual experience every time. That is why, it is very fitting that the first urban resort for One&Only opens in this development of the future.”

Dubai’s Desert Palm unveils new aromatherapy spa The Desert Palm Hotel & Resort in Dubai has opened its new spa, which houses an apothecary-style Aromatherapy Bar by Tisserand. The spa includes six treatment rooms, a steam room, sauna, ice room, cold plunge pool, heated beds and chrome therapeutic showers, with the spa journey beginning with a homeopathic consultation to determine the needs of each guest and the most suitable essential oils for their treatment. Other spa partners have been curated and include Hungarian skincare experts Eminence Organics for facials and Irish seaweed skincare brand Voya for detoxifying body treatments. A Vitajuwel water counter serves water that has been energetically

charged through the powers of crystal healing. Signature treatments include a 150-minute session – a purifying journey designed to combat ageing effects, nourish and cleanse with seaweed and microgreens, combining full body exfoliation, a hot stone ritual, massage and a facial. Signature packages range from half day to full day. These include a deep tissue or Swedish massage and a body polish or an express cleansing facial along with complimentary pool access and lunch in Epicure restaurant. “We are delighted to provide a platform for our guest’s individual self-renewal and restoration,” said Marina Kutskaya, spa manager. “Time is a luxury in everyone’s life today and it’s important to spend time taking care of yourself in an environment that is free of toxins for both mind and body.” Located in the main house of the polo estate, all six treatment rooms overlook the polo fields.

Kids’ digi-detox launches in Sardinia Chia Laguna, Italian Hospitality Collection’s five-star family resort, has launched a series of “Mini Mindfulness” activities to encourage stressed-out and square-eyed kids to log off, relax and reconnect. Designed to help little ones step away from screens, build confidence and recharge, activities at the Sardinia resort include smiling yoga, al-fresco painting, smoothie-making and homemade spa treatments. Each day at the resort’s kids’ club starts with a “little muscle awakening”, a series of simple exercises designed to soothe both body and mind. The physical activity continues with “smiling yoga”, a technique combining laughter with yoga and

breathing excersises, promoting physical expression, emotional development and leadership skills. Kids can also enjoy tours of Chia Laguna’s herbal garden where aspiring botanists can learn to recognise and use various herbs for

Urban Retreat to be replaced by company-owned salon in Harrods London luxury department store Harrods is opening an-in house hair and beauty salon next month, ending their partnership with Urban Retreat. The salon will open at the end of April in the existing Urban Retreat space on the store’s fifth floor and will offer nail services, facials, hair removal and waxing, and will have an on-site hammam.

Harrods said it will make “substantial investments” over the following months to

provide an “industry-leading luxury service proposition to customers.” Urban Retreat founder George Hammer plans to focus on expanding the salon concept into other sites. Harrods will soon begin work on the expansion of its Beauty Hall over two floors, adding new beauty retail experiences.

Switzerland’s Le Grand Bellevue launches ‘wild wellness experience’ Set to launch next month (June 2018), the programme will see guests test their fitness as they swim, cycle and run through a series of mountain pursuits, before indulging in

wellness experiences, including mountainside massages and a heliyoga trip. Fitness-focused challenges will be intersepted with alfresco indulgence: atheletic pursuits will be followed by secluded mountainside massages, and Le Grand Bellevue’s Michelin-starred chef, Urs Gschwend, will lead guests in foraging for nourishing Alpine ingredients such as wild strawberries, porcini mushrooms and edible flowers, followed by healthy cooking class.

At the end of the programme, guests will enjoy a unique heliyoga trip, soaring above the mountain passes aboard a private helicopter before unwinding with a tranquil mountain-top yoga session. The new programme is designed to build upon Le Grand Bellevue’s extensive, recently revamped wellness offering. The 3,000 sqm Le Grand Spa offers 17 wellness experiences, including a new hay sauna, ice fountain and infrared sauna, plus Himalayan salt grotto, Finnish sauna and laconium. PB

Insider spa April This month’s research yielded some interesting results when it comes to your business policies. The bulk of spas questioned say they always offer a free treatment to a complaining customer, with a smaller number offering free treatments or refunds only if the spa is proven to be at fault. In addition, surprisingly, almost all of spa owners in the survey use deep discounting incentives, despite the fact that many business leaders are now questioning the usefulness of this type of promotion. In terms of numbers, business in April remains strong, with occupancy at 68% and year on year treatment business figures cited as better for the vast majority of you.

23 Lashes


eyes ON HER Gorgeous lashes add the finishing touch to any bridal look. FIONA VLEMMIKS explains how to tap into the lucrative wedding market

W Lash Perfect

hile you may already offer successful lash services in your salon or spa, marketing these treatments to a whole new range of customers – such as the profitable bridal market – is sure to boost your revenue. Every woman wants to look her best for her big day and is usually willing to splash the cash on quality beauty services. Therefore, although there are a few extra considerations you must make when

dealing with brides-to-be, the extra care and thought will pay dividends. Bridal lashes can be marketed as part of a complete wedding package, an add on treatment, or as a standalone service. You could also off incentives for the whole bridal party – the bridesmaids or mother of the bride – to have their lashes enhanced. The opportunities are endless.

Get the (right) look While some brides want to turn heads with a dramatic dress and show-stopping make-up, many desire a more natural look. Therefore it’s important, more than ever with a bride-to-be, to get the consultation right. This may be the biggest day of her life, with all cameras on her, so you need to ensure that she’s happy with her look. Fortunately, there are many styles and varieties of lash enhancement services she can chose from. Lash lifting treatments are an ideal choice for women who desire a low maintenance, natural lash. While full extensions can provide killer lashes that are sure to keep all eyes on the bride. The key is to spend enough time quizzing the bride on what she look wants to achieve. Prompt her by asking her about her dress, her hair and make-up, the time of day she’s getting married, her honeymoon – all of which will influence her choice of lashes. Once you have agreed on the look, ensure your bride has a trial before the big day, just as she would with her hair and make-up.>

“This is especially important if they have never had any type of lash treatment before,” advises Kate Duffy, head trainer at Blissology, distributor of Nouveau Lashes in the Middle East. “The preparation is key but its also really important that a bride feels at her most gorgeous and confident, the

finished bridal look should enhance everything about the bride, not completely change her look so its really important to know you’ve picked the right service for your style.” Tanya Gist who heads up Lash perfect at Sister Beauty Lounge concurs: “All our technicians have been trained to advise clients on what would suit their facials features and eye shape. We don’t want an upset bride, so a trial is very important,” she says. Kimberley Carter, managing director of Yumi Lashes, also believes that a trial is essential. “It enables them not only to see the final result of the treatment for the wedding day, but also for their honeymoon and how the lashes will be in their everyday routine. “It allows for any alterations to the service to be made, such as a darker tint, slightly more lifted lashes etc. – ensuring that she has the perfect end result for her magical day. “

Honeymoon lashes While your bridal client might be focusing on the wedding day, it’s important to question her about her requirements for the honeymoon, when lashes should look equally as appealing as on the wedding day. “Asking about the honeymoon is important because this affects the type of maintenance a bride may or may not want,” advises Duffy. >

Booking and treatment time, two hours for a full set of Russian Layering lashes Charge: AED700

“Lash lifting services such as LVL last for six to eight weeks with no maintenance and grow out gradually with your natural lashes. “On the other hand, SVS extensions lasts around four weeks depending on how well a client follows their therapist’s aftercare advice, but will require maintenance or removal by their salon.” Discussing the honeymoon is also an opportunity for you to retail homecare products to the bride. “We have a wonderful black mascara which is oil free and can be applied on top of the lashes if her honeymoon goes past her refill date,” says Gist. “We also have an at home eyelash extension removal kit, which makes it easy for the bride to remove her own lash extensions while she away.” The Yumi Lash lift lasts from eight to 12 weeks. “This is also great alternative to eyelash extensions especially for those clients who may be traveling for a while and may not be able to have a weekly or fortnightly refill to keep her lashes looking perfect,” says Carter. “Also it is great for those clients who are jetting to warmer climates and maybe plan to swim a lot as she has not got to worry about lash extensions falling out due to excessive swimming and sunscreen.”

Yumi Lash Lifting:


Booking time: 45 minutes. Results last between eight -12 weeks. You can charge: AED350

Beyond your usual marketing activities, there are several ways to attract brides. “Firstly social media is a great way to reach out,” says Carter. “Make sure that you show great before and after photos of you lash work as this allows the bride to see how the end result will appear. “You could also have videos of the treatment on your social medial platforms so that they can see what the treatment involves and what to expect. “Another way is to attend bridal shows where you could carry out demonstrations so that potential brides can see the treatment in action.” In addition to social media, Gist advocates reviews. “Word of mouth works well, as having happy clients that are constantly referring us to their friends/ family is the best marketing,” she says. “Lashes are now a growing trend in the market and we are already positioned strongly within the GCC but constant reviews and editorials are an added benefit for us.” >

LVL - Blissology Booking time, one hour (approximate treatment time 45mins). Result last from six-eight weeks. You can charge AED300-350.

29 Duffy also suggests offering special packages. “With LVL, for instance, the results last six- eights weeks but depending on how much a client is washing their face, it’s likely the tinting aspect won’t last as long, so why not offer them a complimentary tint boost around three to four weeks,” she says. “For lash extensions, you could offer a package to include the initial application and a maintenance appointment just before the wedding day to ensure they’re looking perfect.”

Treatment choices


So what lash service would our experts recommend for brides-to-be? “I would recommend a bride opt for a Yumi Lashes lash lift, as an enhancement of their natural lashes,” says Carter. “This advanced treatment is designed to boost and lift the lash without having to resort to false lashes, while enhancing the natural lash colour. “It is a powerful alternative to false lashes that enhances your own natural beauty and colouring. Yumi Lashes turns the eyelashes upwards, giving them length, height and volume and an appearance of having thicker lashes. “No extensions, no glue, no maintenance, simply beautifully lifted lashes, which enhances the bride’s natural beauty even further, while brightening and lifting the eye area. “Yumi Lashes contain no parabens, no formaldehyde, no harsh chemicals are are non-toxic and hypoallergenic so the bride can rest assured that they are receiving a premium treatment using only the finest products.


Duffy also recommends a lifting treatment for a beautiful but subtle look. “Our LVL Lash lifting treatment, standing for ‘length, volume and lift’ would be ideally suited to any bride wanting a natural, soft style,” she says. However, for a bride wanting a more dramatic, glamorous looks, Duffy would plump for SVS (speed, volume and style) Volume Lash extensions. “These offer a Russian Volume style in half the time of a traditional full volume extension treatment. It can completely be tailored to suit everyone as it gives a more fluffy, textured look... very Kim Kardashian!” At sisters, explains Gist, the Russian treatment can be tailored depending on the client’s preference; volume or natural looking lashes. “The treatment involves a multi-lash technique, by adhering synthetic, ultra-fine Russian lashes on to a single natural lash, you will create a voluminous but natural effect. “I would recommend this to a bride because of the beautiful handcrafted fans that can be created. We can go from 2D to 10D, using super fine lashes. This is can give the same effect as strip lashes but has the ability of feeling weightless on the eye and will last for weeks after her big day.” PB

Ask the Experts



the EXPERTS Our experts answer an array of questions about every aspect of running a successful salon or spa business

Why does pigmentation appear differently on some skin tones? Treating all skin tones with a one-size-fits-all approach belies their physiological variations and the aesthetic needs of the individual client. The fact remains, different skin tones age, pigment, blemish and scar differently. Melanin, a naturally occurring sun block that protects skin cells from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation from the sun, is produced from the amino acid tyrosine by cells called melanocytes. The production of melanin is controlled by an enzyme called tyrosinase and is stimulated by exposure to sunlight. People whose melanocytes don’t produce much tyrosinase will most likely have fair skin that doesn’t tan easily. It’s important to note that within each skin colour group there is a wide range of tones, and some of these overlap from group to group. For example, white skin can range from alabaster white to deep olive; black from light tan to almost ebony. These differences are caused by the concentration of melanin and proportional contribution of the other pigments in the skin. People of different races have the same number of melanocytes but they are more active in dark-skinned clients – with oil glands and follicles more numerous and large and skin tending to be oilier, although less acne-prone.

The darker the skin, the more protection melanin provides from ultraviolet rays and premature ageing. Contrary to popular belief, dark skin can get sunburnt too, making it even darker. We all have advantages and disadvantages specific to our skin type, depending on our genetic predisposition. Knowing your clients’ skin strengths and weaknesses means you can tailor your skincare approach in treatment to meet their skin characteristics. >

What are hybrid lash extensions and how do I create them? Hybrid lashes are a mix of classic and 2D volume lashes – they are a slightly heavier, fluffier, classic set compared to full-on volume ones. An artist trained in classic individual eyelash extensions will be able to produce a hybrid set without the need for additional training. To apply them, you need to alter your tweezers to a volume pair to create the fans, but the method of application is still one on one. Overweighting can be an issue and could lead to breakage of the natural lashes. For the fan lashes, because you are attaching multiple extensions to one

Maria Dowling believes businesses should share information to stay in the game For the last few months I have been chairing a community of like-minded individuals, called the Beauty & Hair Salon Owners’ group. We’re all salon owners, successful in our own right and we meet once a month. Why? Because we all know that despite being “self-made” we miss having someone to talk to, someone who knows the business and most importantly, faces the same challenges as us every day. As small business owners, we need to ensure our team is supported and inevitably, we spend a lot of our time mentoring the staff. Yet how many of us have come to terms with the fact that we also need support? As the saying goes, “there is strength in numbers” and no more so than when it comes to running a successful business. Regardless of how talented or driven you may be, you’re not going to get very far without learning how to leverage the power of community. Here are my five reasons why I think industry groups are so powerful.

Knowledge gathering and sharing Richard Branson was quoted as saying, “No matter how incredibly smart you think you are, every start-up

team needs at least one good mentor”. If you join a community, you have a much higher chance of finding a mentor than you do if you choose to go it alone. The chance to learn from the group, drawing on their experience and wisdom and sharing your knowledge will all increase if you immerse yourself in a community. By sharing your experiences, you will also gain the trust of your peers and hopefully avoid any major errors or costly mistakes within the business.

Growing your network In our business group, some of the members I already knew well, but there were many I had only met briefly, and some I didn’t know at all. In Your Network is your Net Worth, author Porter Gale says that by growing your network in business it means you increase your chances of creating positive opportunities through

35 these relationships. She writes, “I believe that seeking out and working in collaboration with others who share your interests and values will provide a stronger foundation, enabling you to reach a higher level of success than you would on your own”. The chance to learn from the group members, drawing on their experience and wisdom and sharing your knowledge will all increase if you immerse yourself in a community. By sharing your experiences, you will also gain the trust of your peers and hopefully avoid any major errors or costly mistakes within the business.

Inspiration and creativity Isolating yourself can stifle creativity and lead to the failure of your business. A sure-fire way of your business breaking down is if you stop learning, evolving and adapting. Chefs travel for inspiration, fashion designers are inspired by muses, so surrounding yourself in a community which by nature contains diverse opinions, ideas and knowledge is going to inspire you. Being around new ideas means you are challenged to think creatively, question what you know and broaden your horizons. It’s also great for problem solving, finding solutions to business problems that you would never have previously thought of.

Additional resources We can’t know and do everything by ourselves, although we try to at times. Many of our group are

sole founders, without active business partners, so we can be at a disadvantage because we don’t have all the skills to achieve our goals. The power of community, when it comes to finding people who have the skills in the areas that you don’t have, is invaluable. Yes, we can hire someone to do it for us, but often, the solution is simple and it just needs a short conversation with someone who has done it before or knows more than you about the subject.

Supporting each other Being part of a community of like-minded business owners means that everyone will know exactly what you are going through because they will be going through the same issues. It provides a support network of people who are on the same journey as you, and enables you to get support when you need it. I now count some of the best salon owners in the business as my friends. I have no qualms about messaging them with a problem to see if they have the same, or giving them a heads-up on a new salon regulation. I look forward to our meet-ups as a group of industry friends, without being guarded about swapping industry information. Sharing is caring, after all.

The highly anticipated opening of the first Six Senses Spa in Dubai is finally here. We talk to spa director Fadi Haddad about the concepts behind the uniquely designed spa

What is the concept behind this Six Senses Spa? Our main focus when designing the spa was to work with vibrations and heightening of the senses, which would give a more profound effect than just the massage alone. One of our biggest challenges is to get our brain waves down to the “alpha” (relaxed) state before the massage is over. A couple of years ago Six Senses started to incorporate a singing bowl ritual at the beginning and end of every treatment. The effect this had on our guests was hugely impactful and from this derived our main concept with this spa – an all suite concept which we call our “Sensory Suites”. Within this suite, every guest’s experiences the rituals and treatment – all in the same space – it’s the guests space to play with. The feedback so far on this has been better than anticipated. Guests are getting a completely different experience than they would get from a normal spa in terms of a deeper state of relaxation and a higher degree of connectedness.

How many treatment rooms do you have? We have six treatment suites that are each dedicated to a different sense – sight, sound, touch, taste, smell and intuition. The décor is contemporary, yet swathed in a palate of sand and light naturals with floor-to-ceiling windows which over looks Dubai’s skylines. >

Tell us more about your ‘Spa Sensory Suites’ What is so unique about this Six Senses Spa is that each guest gets to pick and choose one of our spa sensory suites. Once the guest has selected the spa treatment of their choice, we add a 30-minute sensory experience based on their chosen suite. We also give guests the option to add an extra 30 minutes to relax in a variety of infused steam shower rooms or saunas, which are also found within their suite. For example, if a guest were to choose the “Touch Suite” guests connect to their sense of touch through the natural element of water in the floatation pod – which is the focal point of this suite. The buoyancy created within the pod removes the effects of gravity on the body, bringing them closer to a feeling of total weightlessness. This enables the mind to drift into a deep state of relaxation to reduce stress and promote healing.

How much time and importance have you placed in training and educating your staff? Training is so important across all Six Senses Spas, our corporate trainer comes to every pre-opening to do a full four weeks of training with every therapist. Every new opening has at least one month of training and continuous follow-up sessions throughout the year.

What do you believe will differentiate Six Senses Spa from others in the UAE? Our sensory experiences in the individual suites are extremely unique to us, and this will make us stand out. The treatments we offer combined with the high end professional products we use, Dr Burgener and Subtle Energies, will also ensure that clients leave happy, rejuvenated and beyond relaxed.

PINK precision Lycon has arguably revolutionised the waxing experience. Emma Baron catches up with the brand’s founder, Lydia Jordane as she visits Dubai for the launch of a very special product…

Welcome to Dubai Lydia, do tell us more about your new product launch. Thank you! I am very excited to be here in Dubai to launch our brand new Pinkini range – a collection specially made and formulated for the intimate areas which need waxing. Brazilian and Bikini waxing are two of the most requested in-salon-services worldwide, so it was vital that we came up with a new collection to make sure every client has a comfortable and efficient experience. At Lycon, we have already pioneered many changes in the waxing history – we are proud that our waxes can remove hairs as little as

1ml and the launch of the Pinkini range will add huge value to those clients who often opt for waxing in intimate areas.

How does the Pinkini range differ to your others? The Pinkini is an entire experience – not just a wax. The treatment is made up of four steps, which begins with a skin cleanser, then the very important pre-waxing oil instead of talcum powder – which is not very healthy for us with recent studies showing that it actually causes ovarian cancer, then the hot >

hybrid wax and then finishing lotions for in-salon use as well as an intimate wash and lightening serum for clients’ to use at home. The wax itself is a blend of Lycon’s traditional hot wax and LYCOtec film wax – designed to remove very short, stubborn hairs. It can be used in thin layers that won’t break, which makes the the hair removal process more efficient and economical. It also has an amazing pomegranate scent.

Why is the lightening serum so important? Many clients request a lightening serum, this is because after many years of possibly shaving the skin gets darker – the lightening serum helps even the skin tone and is specially made for intimate areas. Unfortunately many salons still use strip waxing - which I do not recommend at all - for the intimate area because it actually removes an entire layer of skin and this ends up marking the skin, ultimately causing darker skin.

Le Phuong (Lily), Sisters Beauty Lounge, The Village Mall; Sunitha Balaji, The Nail Pavilion, JLT and Rachell Enson, Essa Beauty Lounge – and I am personally going to be visiting them and presenting them with a Lycon Award of Excellence. PB

For more information on the Pinkini range from Lycon please contact The Pure Beauty Company: +971 (0) 4 341 0204

I also hear on the grapevine that not only are you here to launch Pinkini but you’re also here to award some therapists? Yes! I’m very excited. This is a new initiative - which our distributor The Pure Company has decided to launch for the first time in the Middle East – where we are rewarding one therapist with the Lycon Star Therapist award. Currently we have four star therapists who have been nominated by their management team and they are: Lekshmi Vijayamma, Pastels Salon; Al Wasl Road;

success Aromatherapy is experiencing a renaissance. Georgia Seago discovers how it could be the answer to accessible wellness for clients


he detox retreats and DNA profiling services that promise to cure us of ailments and defend from modern day stressors are pretty much inaccessible to the average salon client. Many of the more in-depth solutions offered up by the wellness industry can only be embarked upon by those with the luxury of time and money. But there is an efficacious yet costfriendly therapy for clients wanting to address wellbeing issues in a more accessible way. While aromatherapy has been used in salons for decades, a new wave of products is now hitting the market, promising easier access to its powers via both portable formats such as rollerballs and balms, and consumerfriendly formulas with relatable names such as “sleep” or “focus”. Elemis launched its Life Elixirs range in 2017, comprising rollerballs, shower oils and other products to offer an easy way

to fit essential oils into their busy lifestyles. Meanwhile Aromatherapy Associates chief executive Tracey Woodward recently outlined the brand’s new focus on gifting in a bid to introduce aromatherapy to a wider range of consumers who could, ultimately, become devotees and regular spa-goers. “People have been practising aromatherapy for more than 2,000 years, just by rubbing a piece of rosemary or lavender between the fingers,” says Lara Morgan, co-founder of portable aromatherapy brand Scentered. Shahida Siddique, president of Altearah a brand made up of 14 oil synergies states: “People have resorted to going back to their own grandmothers wellness recipes to heal themselves and it was only then they rediscovered the power of the aromatic plants and essential oils. Humans have always been

connected to plants and this falling back to plants was a very natural phenomenon when all else failed.” Aromatherapy experienced its first modern wave of popularity in the ’80s, when people were looking to take care of themselves in natural ways, explains aromatherapist Anne Murray: “It has stood the test of time. A new generation of users are rediscovering it and finding that it really does work.” She says consumers are gradually latching on to the many studies that show certain compounds in essential oils can activate calming or stimulating senses in the brain. There has also been research into the use of essential oils for quite serious illnesses, and while manufacturers aren’t allowed to claim that their products have a medical effect, Murray says that these studies are being talked about and increasing the popularity of aromatherapy. >

“Awareness of it has filtered down, so people are interested in using oils to maintain general health as well,” she adds. But, unlike 30 years ago, the types of health concerns consumers in 2018 are trying to cure tend to be symptoms of a fast-paced lifestyle that allows for very little downtime. Conditions like stress, anxiety, depression and sleeplessness are all known to be impacted by lifestyle, and Morgan blames the “digital brutality” of the world we live in for plaguing so many people with these issues. Siddique also agrees “like medicines each essential oil has a different effect on different people. Aromatherapists recommend these essential oils for a specific purpose such as Neroli for enhancing mood, Camomile to calm, Pine for decongestion and so forth.”

In practice

Murray agrees that it’s important to introduce clients to different blends and let them make the decision of which oils are used during treatment. “If you’re using oils or blends one to one, a scent test is crucial,” she says. “Because the link between smell and memory is so strong, if you introduce a scent that triggers the association of a bad memory you’ve blown the whole treatment because the client won’t enjoy it. They’ll feel negative about it but might not even know why,” she says. Siddique also comments that in practice we

“As soon as clients walk through the door they’ll immediately associate the aroma with their previous experience. Used this way, scent creates a connection between people visiting you and feeling at home as soon as they come in,” says Murray. She advises beginners start by vaporising citrus blends, as they are “very safe and well tolerated. If you started diffusing cinnamon you’d soon have people’s eyes streaming because it’s so powerful,” she adds. She recommends that salons or spas looking to create their own signature blends find a local aromatherapist, unless they have staff who are experienced and thoroughly educated in aromatherapy. “Essential oils are natural but that doesn’t mean they’re riskfree,” she adds.
