Whether you’re after a vegan spray tan, a chemical-free pedi, an organic glow-boosting facial, or a bouncy blow-dry minus the harsh chemicals, Goodness has you covered. We’ve scoured the city to reveal the best beauty salons that offer clean, good-for-you treatments to tend to all your beauty needs. If you needed an excuse to book in for some “me-time”, this is it.
The Organic Glow Beauty Lounge
Not only has The Organic Glow Beauty Lounge just celebrated its tenth birthday, but it was also the first clean and green ladies’ salon to open in Dubai. Created by Emirati eco-warrior Leena Al Abbas – who left her corporate career to pursue her passion – it’s where you’ll find some of the best organic and natural beauty treatments in town. We’re talking natural hair treatments and ammonia-free color, body scrubs freshly blended in-house, facials packed with superfruits, and nasty-free manis.
There’s even an organic sugaring treatment that’s less painful and better for your skin than your traditional wax. This is a great spot if you’re vegan (all products used are vegan and cruelty-free), an expecting mom, or if you have any health concerns.

That Hair Tho
Boasting some of the brightest and quirkiest interiors in town, That Hair Tho is shaking up the city’s beauty scene with its cool color scheme and forward-thinking approach to responsible beauty. Championing cruelty-free sustainability, it sources only the best ethical brands in the business, be it for on-trend nails or the ultimate bouncy blowout.
It’s not all about that hair tho. Here, you can expect to find the highest quality vegan lashes in Dubai, courtesy of Nouveau Lashes, as well as HD brow treatments, deep-cleansing facials with Esse probiotic skincare, and so much more. Be sure to say hi to the giant THT bunny too, who often says hello to clients while providing a gentle reminder that animal testing is cruel and unnecessary.

Aveda’s flagship salon is accessible through a private elevator and a stroll across an outdoor terrace. Once inside, and with a cup of Aveda Calming Tea in hand, you’ll be greeted by “Mr. Chakra”, who helps clear any energy blockages with a chakra spray suited to your needs, leaving you looking and feeling better than ever. Not to mention the walls made of over 4,000 plants.
But it’s not just the setting we’re obsessed with; it’s also the clean, holistic beauty treatments on offer. There’s everything to transform you from top to toe, including blissful massages, glow-getting facials, and nourishing hair treatments, all using Aveda’s powerful plant-based products. Even the hair colors are made from 99 percent naturally derived ingredients, so you can get your balayage fix while looking after your locks, too.

Queens Beauty Lounge
In the words of Queens Beauty Lounge founder Sakshi Samiksha Nath, “Our tagline is ‘Enhance Beauty Naturally’, and we actually promote natural treatments because we believe in inside-out beauty.” It’s therefore no surprise that in either of the two branches (one’s in JLT, one’s in Dubai Marina) you can book in for the finest organic facials. Thanks to home-grown natural beauty brand Shirley Conlon Organics, there’s a treatment to tackle any of skin concern, including a detoxifying anti-pollution facial to combat congested city skin and a glow-boosting vitamin C facial to tackle dullness and pigmentation.
If that wasn’t enough, the salon is also home to YonKa treatments, which harness the power of plants, essential oils, and fruit extracts to transform skin from within. Finish off with an organic Nashi argan oil hair treatment and you’re good to go.

Sisters Beauty Lounge
If you thought clean, natural beauty treatments couldn’t go hand in hand with uber-luxurious surroundings and top-notch technology, then you clearly haven’t paid a visit to Sisters Beauty Lounge. A Dubai institution, Sisters first opened in 2003 and now boasts seven salons across the city – offering every treatment you could possibly want to look and feel your best.
For a vegan tan that looks as natural as the ingredients in it, book in for a Naked Tan treatment, which will leave you looking like you’ve just come back from a tropical vacay. For locks in need of some love, the ‘Touch of Nature Hair Treatment’ is just the ticket. Using 100 percent organic ingredients, including aloe vera and rosehip oil, it gently cleanses and detoxifies the scalp while boosting nourishment and shine. And for skin in need of a natural reset, there’s an array of The Organic Pharmacy facials on offer to give you back your glow sans harsh ingredients.
