We think big. Beauty Connection Spa has just opened the biggest day spa in the Middle East on the Sheikh Zayed Road; it’s a 30,000 sq ft space with over 300 staff. 
t’s important to set yourself apart from the rest. We don’t take appointments, have automated vending machines for clients to pick services and promise fast, fuss-free beauty for those on the go. 
Good design is important. Our New York-inspired, industrial-chic layout makes navigating the space easy and looks fantastic too.
Beauty Connection Spa has made it into the Guinness Book of Records. 100 manicurists filed and varnished 51,500 nails in eight hours. 
I’m a fan of Rosie the Riveter. She is an American cultural icon symbolising the women who worked in munitions factories during WW2. She embodies feminism and women’s economic power. 
I wouldn’t do anything different in my life. Otherwise I wouldn’t be the person I am right now –an empowered woman, determined to stand by herself.

I love seeing what colours are on-trend at the spa.
