Mermaid manis and candy land pedis are just some of the surprises that await you at Kozma & Kozma…

We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to salons and spas in Dubai. With so many pampering possibilities at our (perfectly polished) fingertips, it takes an extra special salon to stand out from the crowd… but we’ve found a hidden gem that does just that.

Kozma & Kozma is located in a villa on Al Wasl Road. From the moment you step inside, you’ll feel as though you’ve entered a wonderland. There’s a giant colourful chandelier, and a wall of candy jars filled with retro sweets. You’re invited to take your pick from the candy bar, and sip on a complimentary mocktail or coffee while you wait for your treatment.

This salon doesn’t just do your standard file-and-polish manis and pedis – oh no. Take a peek at the services menu and you’ll see all kinds of wacky and wonderful (not to mention oh-so-Instagrammable) treatments.

We’re talking candy land pedicures where you can squish your toes in “gumballs” and have your feet massaged with chocolate, snowman manicures where you soak your hands in cooling “snow” and build your very own little frosty friend, as well as manis and pedis inspired by mermaids, unicorns and other mythical creatures.

Here’s what happened when we tried out the snowman mani and mermaid pedi:

As well as the more quirky treatments, Kozma & Kozma offers nail art, waxing, threading, lash and brow services, and facials and massages that take place in a secret spa hidden behind a wall (just when we thought this place couldn’t get any better). They also provide a wide range of hair services, specialising in curly hair.

We can see this salon being a great option for a unique birthday party or bridal shower… or simply when you need some #treatyourself time. Basically, when can we move in?

Kozma & Kozma, villa 1134 (next to Umm Suqeim Veterinary Centre), Al Wasl Road. Sat to Thurs 10am to 9pm (closed Mondays), Fri 11am to 8pm. Tel: 565 544 534.
