1. Winning Hairdos
Two hairstyles stole the show at the races last year – Dubai based Formul’A Hairdressing Academy and VOG Color Your Life salon created astounding hairstyles, one emulating a horse and the other a replica of the iconic Burj Khalifa.
What to look out for this year!
While the VOG and Formul’A team will be attending the Dubai World Cup, they are not planning to do any hairdos like last year for now. They will be offering race-goers a hair and make-up combo though. The first 10 appointments will get a discount of 20 per cent too!
For more info call VOG: 04 380 89 60.
About the Burj Khalifah Hairstyle: VOG Color Your Life, a newly opened, prestigious French hair and beauty salon with six disciplines, creatively designed the Burj Khalifa hairstyle to pay homage to the tallest building in the world!
About The Horse Hairstyle: Formul’A French Hairdressing Academy artistically crafted the horse hairstyle in honour of the Dubai World Cup and as a tribute to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum who has a passion for horses.
