Making Hair Their Canvas…Mike & Jack Hair Salon
The official partner of L’Oréal Paris and aname that speaks for itself in Dubai, Mike & Jack salon in DIFC is the place for celebrities like Huda and Mona Kattan, as well as Carla DiBello, not to mention the seriously hair obsessed (like myself!)and is THE place for color transformation and superlative color expertise.
A large expansive space, this was launched two years ago by 23-year-old cousins Mike Alam and Jack Gaaz who after having worked for six years at the renowned Joe Raad salon in Jordan, launched Mike & Jack in 2016. The salon quickly jumped to the top of everyone’s go-to place for stellar hair and beauty treatments, including hair extensions, nails, waxing, and color correction.
According to my stylist here Joe, Balayage was perfect for me as it was an effortless, low maintenance look, but still on-trend, with the addition of Babylights in the crown to help mask the regrowth of my roots. After sectioning my hair, Joe began the Balayage technique which is literally painting the hair freestyle to give a depth of color, texture, and tone. He also uses a unique technique called Air Touch which is exclusive to this salon and involves darker roots with blonder ends. After my color was washed out, Smart Bond was applied over the sink to reduce the risk of damage and then my roots color was applied afterwards.
After the waiting was over, it was tone, shampoo, rinse, and then a deep conditioning masque was applied. After a trim, my hair was blow-dried and then he created the beachy waves look. The best part of my hair color was the natural continuum of beautiful shades, starting from the crown—a dark chocolate which gradually and subtly blended into medium brown, then to honey and then at the ends, caramel blond.
