Every good holiday starts with perfectly manicured feet and a fresh blow-dry, or a clean shave and a bit of a trim. That being said, the day before a flight is often one of the busiest and heading to the salon can tail off the end of everyone’s to-do lists. But fret not, as DXB’s salons are here to get you vacation ready, from your head to your toes.
World of Wellness by XpresSpa
Looking good is one thing, but feeling it is even better. That’s why we suggest getting your head in the game by visiting World of Wellness, and setting aside an hour just for you. Once you’re there start with a neck and back massage to release any tension built up during packing for your trip. Then, once you’re feeling suitably calm, get yourself looking the part with the classic wash and blowout, which takes 25-minutes.

Whether you’re a classic red polish woman or a sun-worshipping pastel-polish-wearing kind of girl, you’ll certainly agree that a pedicure is a prerequisite to visiting the beach. Get your toes looking poolside fabulous with Timeless Spa’s Refresh Pedicure. Taking just 30-minutes (so you’ll still have time to hit Dubai Duty Free) the treatment includes exfoliation, cleansing, a foot massage and polish. Though you’ll want to make sure you’re wearing sandals to let that polish dry as you walk through the terminals.

An open spa in Terminals 1 and 3, here you’ll find express services as well as full-blown treatments. Using French-brand Talika, which is known for its natural ingredients, the spa offers both a head massage and foot massage starting at 15-minutes each. Those in need of tension relief should book the Head Up which is designed to relieve stress as it focuses on acupressure points. Whereas those who want to prep their feet for the air-pressure of the cabin will be smart to book a Be Feet massage. The oil-based treatment, which uses reflexology methods, will induce that blissful feeling of full-body relaxation.
