Get Pre-Iftar Fabulous
If you’re heading out to an Iftar this evening, you’ll want to look your best. For one evening only, at Marquee in Jumeirah Beach Road, Angel Montague-Sayers will be offering a blow-dry or up-do tutorial for fabulous, weekend-ready tresses. But it doesn’t stop there, anyone who purchases the EIDEAL hot hair tool will receive their own hairstyling for free. So for the price of one hot tool, you’ll also get a fully done hair style for the night and the ability to create it yourself at home. Sounds good to us! Marquee, JBR. 4pm – 6pm. (04) 321 7395.

Kitchen6, JW Marriott Marquis, Dhs195 per person. Sunset to 8:30pm. (04) 4140000.
