Some trends live short and some are long lasting. One of these durable styles is hair color gradient. Natural beauty and sun-kissed hair color is what the fashion world is recommending to its fans. We share the hottest and most popular techniques to guide you in the right direction:
This technique was created by aldo coppola, the Italian championship winner for women’s hair styling. Basically, it is an advanced method of lighting hair with a very natural effect. The hair stylist divides the hair into bundles and backcomb, then bleach the back comb followed by the bundles of hair one by one from the tip to the root to achieve a shade slightly lighter than the original.
In shatush, the hair colorist chooses your hair strands randomly and thickness of each bundle is based on your demand.
The advantage of this lightening technique is that you can refresh your hair color every often with the minimal damage on the main body of the hair and the root. Plus, it suits all type of hair as well as the colors from black to brunet to blond and from thick to thin. The result on thin hair is voluminous and shiny look.
Although Shatush might seem an easy method, in fact, only expert hair stylist can apply this method. Because this technique is a foil-free sort of lightening hairs and it is very important to keep each strand separate than other and control the level of dimming the bundles to get a result of sunlight shiny and shaded lines with no visible difference between the colored part and the virgin hair color.
Therefore, if you are planning to have this technique, make sure you take your first step right and choose a professional Shatush hair stylist. Also, don’t hesitate to ask about the brand of the products and color that he/she is going to apply on your hair.

Ombre is a French-origin word which means “Shade”. This style is known as one of the hottest hair fashion and seems to be a big hit between celebrities, such as kim kardashian, halle berry, elizabeth olsen, jesicca alba and so more.
Generally, ombre is a process of transforming dark shade in the root faded to the lighter down by bleaching the hair from end to the mid part of the bundles with the shade of completing the original color and it aims to give a natural look to the hair. Frankly speaking, this style works better on brunettes, yet at the end of the day, it is a unique style that suits all hair textures.
The advantage of ombre is its wide variety and being easy maintained and basically with this trend, you don’t need regular touch up every two or three months since the root remains flawless and untouched.
This technique is mostly considered as a synonym of ombre by mistake, while balayage is a technique and Ombre is a trend. Balayage falls into highlights/low light category and it is known as hair’s hand painting
In this technique, the bleach and the color are applied from end to the root with different shades to create a combination of amazing multi-shaded.
The difference between this method with ombre and Shatush is the way of applying the color and the shades. To get a balayage, the hair expert, sweep the color through small triangle sections of the hair that he makes in advance, onto a piece of foil and the bottom of the hair stays darker in order to give natural sun-kissed highlights throughout the hair.
Balayage is not an easy technique and our professional stylists in trained by famous and international trainers to get certified in the art of hair painting.

Cold Fusion Hair Extension or Micro Link is the latest technique in hair extension

Cold Fusion Hair Extension; Revolutionary Method For All Type Of Hair

As a professional beauty salon Royal Retreat Beauty Centre, it is important for us to educate ourselves and update our scientific knowledge in hair and hair care to enlighten our clients how they can have a healthy and pretty hair while making any changes such as adding extension hair extensionslayers to their hair to stay attractive.



Hair plays very important role in our beauty. Long, full and shiny hair is a sign of youth and the secret to look young and charming in any age is getting help from semi-permanent hair extension.

There are plenty types of hair extension offer in the beauty market, but because each way applies different method, which sometimes might be harmful to the hair you need to take your step carefully and with an open eye. Here are some tips that help you in choosing the best and healthiest way:


Cold Fusion Hair Extension is also known as a micro link or micro loop is the latest technique in hair extension.  In this revolutionary method, which is very gentle for the hair, the keratin based extensions will be attached to the root by keratin-based glue that bonds to the natural hair.

Since In this Italian technique, the ultrasound is applying to protect the natural hair and no heat or hot glue are offering, so it can be said that this method is safe for all kind of hair, specifically for soft and thin hair.


In Cold Fusion Hair Extension method, the extension attaches to the natural hair in a single bond through ultrasound. These waves crystallize the keratin based glue and build a strong bond with the natural hair. These bonds are long lasting and invisible and because no hot glue is using, hair stays healthy.

Cost wise, cCold Fusion Hair Extension is less expensive and reusable and it worth the money because it is much healthier than other ways and the removal process leaves your hair follicle protected.

In addition to all in cold fusion method, the extension will last between 4 to 6 month which is the longest term for a hair extension to compare with other systems.



In Hot fusion, heated keratin based bounds apply to small bundles of your natural hair by a very hot applicator. The temperature of these elements can reach 220C which can burn your finger to a crisp! This heat is used to melt the keratin mixing it into the Remy hair. Once the keratin bond is cool it becomes hard and your hair and the bond are attached to each other. That’s how the hair extension stays on your hair.


Despite cold fusion, this method doesn’t have many advantages to talk about and basically, it is not advisable method because first of the high and unbearable temperature of the machine damages the hair. At the same time, it is very time consuming and can take several hours of your time. Above all, the worst part is when it comes to removing the extension. In this method, to break down the bond and remove it from your hair, often acetone is used which damages the cuticle and weakens the hair.


Tape in hair extensions is applied using double or single-sided polyurethane tape. In this method, the extensions are pre-taped and will fix on both sides of your own hair.


This type of hair extension doesn’t last more than six to twelve weeks. Although, tape-in hair extension is easy and quick to apply, they are usually low-quality hair extensions, plus, it might make you feel uncomfortable since it’s tying your hair up, especially on the side of the head, even by using single-sided tape.

In addition, after taping in extension, you should avoid washing your hair or excessively sweating at least for 24-48 hours after application because the bond needs time to stay attached properly to the hair.


Commonly this extension is known as sew-in or braided method. This type of hair extension is ideal for curly or thick hair. In this method, you’re a bundle of your hair is braided to create a base for the extensions, and then the extensions are sewn into the braids with a needle and cotton thread.


Although in this method, also no heat or hot glue is applying but the process takes a long time and the key point to note is if the hair extensions are not washed properly and regularly, bacteria can build up and cause infection. Plus, feeling of discomfort and headaches after an application is common. Above all, the tight braids in this method sometimes can cause tension or traction alopecia.



We offer 100 percent Remy hair to look natural. Our Remy’s hair is from India and Europe, the most common countries for this type of extensions. Base on your original hair color, you can choose your wig.

Hair Hair treatment Olaplex

Olaplex Hair treatment and Olaplex no 3 reviews by Dubai expats

Olaplex hair treatments are one of the best ways to cure your hair. Olaplex no 3 before and after.

Olaplex-No.3-royal-retreat-DubaiApparently, highlight or coloring the hair cause damages and early hair aging, because in the process of bleaching or changing the color, the bonds of the breaks and it results in hair weakness. However, these days still you can have healthy hair on your balayage look or ombre or status by using the right before and after care product.

If you are one of those women who likes to have different look every often, take my advice and avoid using the hair care products that contain silicones, sulfates, phythalates, DEA and aldehydes. Because these toxic ingredients which mostly you can find in the commercial shampoos or hair conditioner break down the protein of the hair and remove the essential oil that the scalp needs to stay healthy.

Therefore, for going through the process of styling your hair the first thing you should do is choosing a trustable beauty salon and followed by, is to make sure about the products that they are using and you can ask your hair colorist idea about the aftercare shampoo and conditioner.

In regards, one the best hair perfection that I ever saw and tried is Olaplex hair treatment. This treatment product can restore the broken bonds and revitalized the poorly conditioned hair damaged by chemical, thermal or mechanical effect.

OLAPLEX INGREDIENTSolaplex-treatment-by-royal-retreat-spa-Dubai:

Olaplex hair treatment is a single operative ingredient which calls” Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate”. In fact, this single active element has two reactive ends that break the link of single sulfur hydrogen bonds cause by bleaching or coloring to form of disulfide bonds before, during and after a process of hair styling. Perhaps, that’s why this product refers to a magical hair product.


Fortunately, this product can be used either in the salon by your colorist or at home or even both. Basically, Olaplex treatment has 3 easy steps. The first step which refers to Olaplex No.1 is the bond multiplier, Olaplex No.2 calls bond perfector, these two steps should be applied to your hair by colorist during the process.

The step Olaplex 3 which is hair perfector, actually considered as the last step that can be used at home to protect the hair from ongoing damages. The last step is as important as the first two, since using hair perfector, prevent the hair trends from dryness or breakage and achieves a healthy and shiny look on your trendy hairstyle. You can find about Olaplex 3 direction and instructions to use at home by calling Royal Retreat Beauty salon and spa.
