Brow wow, ow!

Thicker brows are back – be it one of the Olsen twins or Kangs in Fashion. The latest A-list beauty trend is definitely not for the faint-hearted. The eyebrow transplant, created to cure over-plucked arches, involves hair being shaved from the back of the head and follicles extracted. Small incisions are then made above the eye and individual hairs inserted into the holes. Up to 350 hairs are required for each brow and the treatment costs an eye-watering Dhs12,800. We'll pass, thanks.

The Treatment?

As you enter the serene surroundings of this hidden-away spa, you'll feel miles away from anywhere – especially the hustle and bustle of Al Wasl Road. Lay back and enjoy as aromatherapy oil is worked in all over the body, arms and legs are put through a bending and stretching ritual and to finish, a warm cloth bag filled with energising herbs is placed on various pressure points along the body. The calming effect of the heat makes aches and pains disappear in an instant. Finally, there's a relaxing scalp massage while your mind drifts off to another world.

The Result?

Skin feels noticeably smoother and tension in the back and shoulders has disappeared.
