Getting Pampered At Rola’s Beauty Lounge

For a long time now I’ve been desperately wanting some relaxation/beauty time and I finally got the chance to enjoy that a couple of days ago. All thanks to a very generous, well-timed invite from Rola’s Beauty Lounge to try out their facial, back massage, hair treatment & brushing, and mani/pedi services. Talk about pampering!

I was so looking forward to my appointment and as soon as I walked into the place I knew I would not be disappointed. The interiors are so pretty with white orchids all over.

I started with a tour around the salon. Above is the gorgeous massage/treatments area. They have different kinds of advanced machines for fat burning, body shaping, laser hair removal. Several types of facials and massages are also available.

After the tour it was time for my facial. The specialist’s name was Marina. She had a close look at my skin and thought an oxy facial would be suitable for me.

This is the Oxy machine. It uses blue light and red light technology to clean and refresh the skin. A mask is then applied and left for about 10 mins while I got to breathe some pure oxygen. The whole facial from start to finish felt amazing!

Moving on to the hair treatment. Handled by Paula. She examined my hair and suggested a nourishing treatment for curly hair.

The hair wash area is lovely! Each basin has an LED head light that changes color.

Then some hair styling. I love embracing my curls. But they can be very high-maintenance sometimes.

I got samples of these shampoos, dedicated to curly hair. Can’t wait to see how they change my hair.

Last but not least.. The back massage. I don’t know the name of the lady who did it for me. But she was really good. I asked her to focus on my neck and shoulders and I really felt a relief.

I seriously think I found my new favorite salon in Kuwait. You really must check it out.
