She’s reportedly spending her 36th birthday here this month, so we totted up the cost of her favourite salon treats.
We’re sending good vibes to Kim Kardashian after her recent ordeal in Paris, but also looking forward to her planned visit to Dubai next month. The trip is for a make-up masterclass with her go-to artist Mario Dedivanovic (the guy responsible for the contouring craze) and happens to fall over Kim’s 36th birthday on October 21.
But keeping up with Kim’s beauty regime takes more than being handy with a highlighter: the flawless reality star is also big fan of salon treatments.
She reportedly has regular UMO 24-carat gold facials, twice-weekly glycolic peels, not to mention fortnightly mud wraps and body scrubs as well as monthly laser treatments on her legs and non-invasive body contouring/anti-cellulite treatments. That’s before you even factor in her three or four mani/pedis a week.
We scoured Dubai’s top spas and salons for Kim’s favourite treatments – or the nearest equivalent – to find out roughly how much it’ll cost you per month in Dubai to look as polished as Kim.
Be warned: this will make your eyes water.
