“Hair is one of the most important part of most women’s makeup. Nice hair makes you feel good no matter what you are wearing. Making both men and women feel good about themselves doing great cuts and color which inturn you can see is an instant boost in their confidence. So I’m always inspired to be best I can in what I do ” Says Session Stylist Maurice Smith.

This Vidal Sassoon trained British hairdresser has travelled the world and currently resides in Dubai. He could transform you and your hair. Believe me when I say that he can actualy transform you.

Maurice is not just a Hairdresser but a good friend to me as well and I love how he makes sure to make you feel special each time I walk in to the salon. His energy brightens up your day and his witty sense makes you laugh out loud each time you meet him.
Talking to the man himself, here is a what Maurice has to say : ‘When I was at the beach club, it was very exclusive and in those days Dubai was a little hidden gem for the rich and the famous from the Royal family to pop stars ,movie stars ,footballers and been fortunate to work on The Sheikhas of Dubai, celebrities like David Beckham ,wife of Ex- PM of UK Cherrie Blaire and many more. For the past 4 years, I’ve been based at Meydan hotel. Meydan is always full of events and the most known is the World Cup Horse Race. Now most of my clients lives in Dubai but having a celebrity in the shop adds bit of excitement but with a lot of VIP’s I have to go to them within the hotel for security reasons.’
When asked what is his expertise in hair ,he says : ‘I am an all rounder when it comes to hair, but I love cuts & colouring. I have lot of blonde hair clients as finding someone to do the right blonde and not yellow in this part of the world is quite hard. But again I love diversity and doing different things on the hair. Like I said, I’m always inspired to do the best I can.’
Maurice works at The Hair Shop in Meydan Hotel and prefers the world come to Him. He is an asset to the hair industry today and I love his work. To know more about Maurice, get yourself booked in today at THE HAIR SHOP MEYDAN HOTEL. Also, check out Maurice creating magic on my hair.
