Haute Living

Entering into Rami Jabali’s new hair and beauty salon is an unexpectedly breathtaking experience. One leaves the busy street of Jumeirah Beach Residence and arrives into a white space of high ceilings, jagged square-cut windows, interesting glass chandeliers and lots of bright lights. The feeling is almost akin to what one would imagine stepping into a scifi spaceship vessel would be like, except for the fact that there are hair styling tools, client chairs and sinks instead of serious-looking computer screens and gadgets. The light, spacious and uber-modern decor causes one to immediately relax – a feeling which is further heightened by Rami himself, who can always be seen graciously greeting clients. Since relocating to Dubai in 2006 Rami has developed an impressive roster of clients including numerous royal weddings, the Dubai International Film Festival and Dubai Fashion Week. While his work experience has spanned many countries and top brands, what Rami is greatly interested in is providing clients with healthy hair which lasts. We caught up with Rami to learn the ins and outs of his new place and just exactly how he leaves each client with such healthy glossy locks. What is your philosophy in regards to keeping...

Time Out Dubai

The promise As colour specialist Rami examines my locks (poorly cut, and with roots showing from my last dye job), he says he will do his best to tidy them up, but will be limited in terms of styling because of my too-short layers and colouring history. That said, he promises I’ll love the result. Step by step We start with highlights and lowlights, while Rami talks to me about the unusual directions of growth in the front portion of my hair, and advises me on the best way to wear a fringe in the future. Once the foils are in place, he applies a light brown colour to my roots – a stage between my natural colour and the auburn I’ve been growing out, to reduce the appearance of any regrowth. After a thorough wash, we’re back in the chair for a cut – he takes off two inches from the back, but hardly anything from the front. Apparently this is the only way I’m going to get the thickness back. The result After a blow-dry with my fringe swept in a new direction, my hair looks healthier and glossy. It’s the most sophisticated I’ve looked since leaving any...

Must have hairdos for S/S14

If you’re long overdue for a snip and are toying with the idea of a new look, make sure you’re informed on the latest trends before entrusting your tresses to your stylist. This season it’s all about balayage as opposed to ombre (see right for an explanation), beards for blokes, dishevelled braids and wet-look slicked back styles. We may not approve of her in some ways, but US popstar Miley Cyrus’s short asymmetrical cut has set the tone for what is sure to be the must-have hair style of the season. As for colour, Dubai-based expert and stylist Rami Jabali, owner of Rami Jabali Salon & Spa in JBR, says anything goes. ‘It’s all about embracing change and reinvention in 2014. Hue isn’t important as long as it complements skin tone,’ says Rami. ‘Think complete overhauls, blondes moving to auburn tones and brunettes turning to blond, embracing complete change.’ Here, Rami sets the scene for this season’s must-have hair styles, plus how to get them at home.
