SWISH is Abu Dhabi’s newest beauty haven located off-island in the Hadeel community at Al Bandar. This beautiful place is situated on the waterfront promenade, overlooking Al Raha Beach, you can enjoy sweeping ocean views while getting a high-tech blow out.
The posh boudoir is quaint and nicely decorated with floor to ceiling retail shelving, minimal work stations and plush seating upholstered in chenille and leather. A wall of windows spans the length of the shop flooding it with natural light – the BEST lighting there is for beautification – and the blow dry bar is situated to take full advantage of it. Guests can take in the serene views while being serviced using only Dyson Supersonic hairdryers – a commitment to keeping hair gorgeous AND healthy.
The Brow Beat
SWISH offers a plethora of services including makeup applications and eyebrow maintenance. I popped in for a brow makeover and I’m glad I did. My services included threading, shaping and tinting. This was my first experience with brow tinting and it certainly enhanced my aesthetic. Using RefectoCil eyelash and eyebrow tint, my brows were shaped and darkened in just a few minutes. The wait time for the product to take effect is minimal. The problem with my brows – they’re thin and sparse along the ends. I rely on the length of my brows to fill them in. Tinting was the perfect solution to add “volume” and it’s projected to last between 4 and 6 weeks depending upon care. Of course activities like swimming and excessive product use effect how long the tint will last. The beautician servicing me was pleasant and efficient. My brows literally went from barely there to va voom in less than 20 minutes.
Hit the Highlights
As of May 20, 2018, brow tinting costs a budget-friendly AED 50. SWISH offers full makeup applications and there’s a cute little area in the back where you van have a mini photo shoot. Trust me, you’ll love this as t’s equipped with a ring light. SWISH is one shop with two bars, a blow dry bar and makeup bar. And, if you’re a bit challenged in this area like me, makeup application classes are on the way.
