Kate Middleton’s Hairdresser Is Opening A Dubai Salon This Month
The man behind The Method cut is coming to the UAE…
If you’re like us (or truthfully, if you just have eyes), the Duchess of Cambridge’s thick, wavy locks have long been a haircut inspiration.

The Italian-born hair stylist is also responsible for tending to the tresses of Lady Gaga, Kate Moss and Jennifer Lawrence and, soon, perhaps yours.
The celebrity hairdresser is opening up two salons in the UAE this year, namely one in Dubai in February, and one in Abu Dhabi soon afterwards.
And while Ferretti himself won’t be on the floor chopping locks, all hairdressers will be trained in his signature cut.
Dubbed The Method, Ferretti’s concept is based around the idea of understanding the natural fall and type of a person’s hair, and specifically cutting to suit it.
His “invisible cut” is mostly down to his patented scissors, which take off around 12 per cent less hair than a stereotypical pair.
This bespoke approach, which has won him a legion of celebrity fans, doesn’t come cheap though. In fact, it’s regarded as the world’s most expensive haircut.
A session with Ferretti himself will set you back US$1,500 (Dhs5,500) – although his namesake salon’s stylists are substantially less.
There’s no word yet on exactly what dates the two UAE salons will open, nor their menus and price list.
The Dubai outlet will be situated on Jumeirah Road, just next to the Four Seasons, while the Abu Dhabi branch, which is slated to open between March and April, will be located in a Khalidiya villa.
Ferretti, who has more than 20 salons around the world including branches in the US, UK, China, India and Spain, also has an eponymous range of hair products.
We’ll let you know when we have more details on the UAE salons… and in the meantime we’re bookmarking our favourite Duchess Kate pictures to take in for a chop.
