43553As the Middle East founder and owner of Great Lengths extensions, Julie Powell knows her stuff, and when it comes to creating luscious locks, she’s the go-to expert.

Aiming to create a salon with a difference, Julie has transformed a vast villa into a light and airy space complete with private VIP treatment rooms featuring electronic chair beds, offering you the chance to kick back and relax from start to finish.


The large flagship store is located in the heart of Jumeirah, just down the road from Burj Al Arab.


The Great Lengths team include the best in hair extension specialists. My therapist, Roxy, examined the colour and texture of my hair (fine to the point of barely existing), and it was decided that no more than 120 pieces should be put in, in order to avoid weighing down my natural locks.

After a chat with Yvonne, a lady whose passion for hair colour knows no boundaries, I was advised to keep my colour and instead feed it some scrumptious treats to ensure the hair looks full of life.

Roxy quickly went to work, and a mere 90 minutes later I looked up to see a different person staring back at me.

After a sleek blow-dry and a trip to the Japanese Garden to take in the surroundings, I was ready to hit the town.


Great Lengths has major plans in the works to create a one-stop shop that includes specialised treatments such as hair extensions but also everything from hair repair, manicure and pedicures to eyelash extensions, even.

The salon provides an oasis of calm with staff who truly know their crafts, leaving you feeling confident that you are in good hands from the moment you slide into the comfy chairs. With the salon’s policy of using only ethically sourced hair, you can leave with a clear conscience and stunning tresses.
