Tips & Toes, Mira
We’re prepared to travel for an excellent colorist, even if Mira isn’t your local Tips and Toes salon (it isn’t ours). Ask for Katerina at Tips & Toes Mira, and she’ll walk you through her color recommendations while also considering what you’re looking for. Katerina has 20 years of experience in the hair industry, so she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to recommending the proper color and treatment to keep your hair healthy. Rather than huge highlights that make you look like you’ve been out of the salon for a long time, highlights are applied very lightly so that they appear natural. She takes her time with your color and recommends toners and treatments for the greatest post-salon glow (add on a vibrant toner for Dhs205 – you won’t be disappointed).
