What happens when you mix an ice cream vending machine, photo booth and ecologically-sound hair products? Answer: The hippest hair salon in town.
Dubai's new darling Chalk is pin-pointed at the centre of the UAE's art and culture district, Al Quoz, and the homegrown hair salon concept located on Alserkal Avenuefuses a modern aesthetic with creative spirit.
Think buzzing art and fashion pop-ups, black and white ice-cream and noteworthy VIP guests walking around. Don't be surprised to see Hala Kazim, or Rene Borisova.
A sanctuary for creatives, "Chalk isn’t just a hair salon, it is an invitation to be yourself, and we welcome everyone to share their personal truth and be part of the Chalk family,” says co-founder, Anas Bukhash.
Next to chic hairdos, treat yourself to soothing facials, in-chair massages and freshly made manis. The internationally trained staff uses inventive, niche haircare brands, focusing on sustainablity. The cruelty-free products include sulphate and paraben-free Kevin.Murphy, award-winning botanical blends and essential oils of Philip B, and MALIN+GOETZ, which fuses natural ingredients with advanced technology. Sign us up, please!
You can also expect large-scale lights and floor to wall 360* mirrors, helpful when you're getting your final look snapped in the #chalkbooth. And if all that wasn't enough to entice you, the salon also offers valet parking.
