Expat Life in Dubai

Salon Review: Nail Moda

July 15, 2012

Usha, the only girl I trust for my waxing services, left The Nail Spa a few months ago and I’m not really happy with the other girls who are doing their waxing there. Since then, I was on a mission to find a reputable salon to do my waxing. It has to be well-known and well-established salon because I don’t know, I have this mentality that if it’s well-known they will take good care of their clients more to not tarnish their branding. It has to be clean (for obvious reasons) and they should not be exercising double-dipping. I came across Nail Moda from the list of salons that we get a staff discount from. I decided to give it a try because it’s close to home and it was highly recommended by Time Out Dubai. 🙂

I didn’t have to wait even if I’ve arrived 5 minutes earlier, it never happens in The Nail Spa where I’m usually asked to wait for 10-15 minutes before I get attended to. A lovely girl from Nepal did my waxing, I forgot her name though but she sure knows what she’s doing. She’s quick and clean and knows how painful waxing can be so she does everything with a speed of lightning. She was fantastic! Next was a manicure and pedicure service, the Filipino lady helped me choose a good color – again, never happens at the Nail Spa as everyone seems to be very busy there. Nail Moda also has more selections of essie colors to choose from. Once color was chosen, I was guided to their mani/pedi section which was huge. I particularly liked the foot spa that they have as it massages your feet too and the chair they have is very comfortable. It even gives you a 30-min back massage. 🙂 After a perfectly done nails, I was even more impressed when I found out that they are way more cheaper than The Nail Spa. To cut the long story short, I finally found a new salon for myself and really happy about it.

    Can you recommend any good hair-dressers in Dubai? 🙂 Recently moved here, and have heard so many horror stories about hair-dressers that I’m terrified!
