I have longer hair and am picky about who cuts it. I noticed in the Sheraton Diera there was an Eastern European lady at the salon. Might be an option. Some of my best haircuts came from that side of Europe.

I really liked Pace e Luce in Dubai Marina. My hairdresser (Dani) was Lebanese but boy did he do a good blow-dry!

I also hear RAVE reviews about Nicholas & Jean, in Media One Hotel... which is ironic as for the entire year I lived opposite, I never went there.

Sorry, but there are no decent hot curries to be had in Dubai. It's all watery gruel. You can tell them to make it hot enough to dissolve the pavement and what you get is still no hotter than a madras would be back home.

I would be happy to be proven wrong. Ravis in Satwa is no better - before you say it.
