The ultimate pampering place in Beirut: Walk through the blue door and never look back!
Feeling overworked, over-stretched, over-it-all? How about a magical pick-me up? No, we’re not suggesting a booze fest, we’ re talking about Naiman, the beauty salon in Beirut that has re-defined the notion of pampering. Located in the posh neighborhood of Verdun, this is the ultimate destination to spoil yourself. No guilt allowed. Open since 2003, this place’s clientele has literally exploded in the past decade. While it may have lost some of its early intimate feel, it has expanded its services to cater to a wider customer base. Something we cannot complain about.
Whether it’s the hair salon or the heavenly treatments for nails, face and body, we guarantee you will come out of Naiman feeling rejuvenated. If you think this is a woman’s only-affair you would be mistaken. Naiman is one of the few places in town where you will encounter almost as many men grooming proudly- albeit privately- as women.
Make sure to book ahead as the place is full to the brim, especially on weekends. You can even buy gift cards for those loved-ones you wish to spoil or chose from a wide selection of lovely accessories. Word of caution : this is not the place to be if you do not want to see or be seen. If you’re looking for a laid-back tranquil spot, stay clear of the blue door. Valet parking is available, bien sur!
