Looking for info from the ladies

My hubby left for Riyadh today, he has only been away for a few hours and I miss him so much already I hope the next few days goes quickly
I am doing some research and would really apreciate your input?
Are there any good western beauty salons?
I get my nails done and I would like to continue doing so when living there.
Can you get massages/waxing and things like that done?
I am going to ask some stupid questions so please bear with me

It's Elizabeth again.  Forgot to answer the rest of your question. You can get waxing, threading, hair treatments, massage, skin care, facial and body hair removal and even botox and laser treatments at some salons. It will be a matter of searching till you find a salon that fits your needs. Hope the info helps

Re: Looking for info from the ladies

Luthan Center
hot stone
both great in massages , skin care and facial.

there is an Italian salon in Olya all the workers are Italians but I do not remember the name it's just next to other good hire salon called The first.
The first is great if u want to try Moroccan hammam.

I love Bloom in exit 5 for eyebrows but the salon level is so so :/

Re: Looking for info from the ladies

Hello lovely Ladies :)))

Here we go....been today to German salon. Very nice deco, very friendly staff. Had pedi+mani by 2 lovely philippine ladies (Betty & Mary). Treatment was very relaxing, very professional and ended up with bright red nails on my hands and toes!:)) Pleased with the result! Used a Cobone voucher so it was all together 60 SAR (instead of 150 SAR).:))

They do massages, facials, nails , hair etc.

I would definitely recommend it!:)

Oh, did i forget  to mention that a princess were sitting next to me having her pedicure done?:))

Do any of you know if Saudi has DNA facials? I had several done while living in Turkey and they were amazing. I researched it and it's made of cow fetal DNA and not human!

Also, are there any Korean/Turkish baths? I love getting a full body scrub and they had Turkish baths in the Emirates.

Re: Looking for info from the ladies

I use Mariyah.  A wash/cut/styling is 120SAR.  Highlights are 300SAR. 

I have always been extremely happy with them!  Initially I went to a British woman with a small salon on a compound that all my colleagues went to and she was 'okay' but after I tried Mariyah, I never went back to the British woman lol
