BT Beauty Salon and Hairdresser
Scissor Rating: 4/5
Lebanese hairdresser Cezar Azar has been a whizz with the scissors for almost 15 years. He styles the locks of many a starlet at the annual Abu Dhabi Film Festival, and I’ve been told by a number of gushing girls that he’s the best hairdresser in the city. So, after hearing these tip-top cutting credentials, I put my hair in his capable hands and, with a deep breath, tell him he can do whatever he likes. He gets to work with a pot of INOA, an ammonia-free, oil-distribution dye, so the more you use it, the healthier your hair becomes. ‘The structure is improved and it will look shiny and healthy,’ we are told. He picks a good colour for me, and takes great care with the application, checking it a number of times to make sure it is developing perfectly.
As for the cut, Cezar uses a technique which involves twisting my neck in a manner reminiscent of The Exorcist, and snipping at seemingly random chunks of hair. Thankfully, it all comes together, and I’m left with a very choppy, stylish cut that’s reasonably easy to take care of.
If you’re willing to splash the cash on a very experienced, very confident stylist who is able to advise you and revamp your look, Cezar is your man.
Cezar uses L’Oréal and RedKen.
