The Art of Shaving opens in Dubai
We love a rags-to-riches story here at Esquire, which is why we've always been taken to the men's grooming company Art of Shaving. What started as a small husband-and-wife run company out of a kitchen in New York, has is now considered one of the world’s leading premium shaving brands with its aromatherapy-based grooming products, high-end shaving instruments, and a barbershop dedicated to men’s shaving.
One of those barbershops has now opened in City Walk 2 in Dubai, and we're pretty happy it.
Boasting three chairs and a gentlemen’s lounge stocked with all sorts of barbershop paraphernalia, the smell of sandalwood fills the elegant space, which has all the interior touch-points of the brand’s flagship New York store on Lexington Avenue.
As you'd come to expect with The Art of Shaving, there are several treatments on offer, ranging from the 45-minute Royal Shave (Dhs240) that uses several applications of hot and cold towels, face masks and balms or, if you're in a hurry, opt for the express 30-minute Traditional Shave service at Dhs140. As well as shaving, the shop also offers haircuts (Dhs100), facials starting at Dhs140, hair colouring (Dhs295) and nose/ear waxing from Dhs25.
It's a welcome addition to Dubai's men's grooming scene, and worth dropping by if you're in the City Walk area.
