Remarkable talent. Exceptional service. A welcoming environment. It’s no wonder we’re taking the UAE by storm. Named after the brightly-lit signage above a theatre where the Hollywood elite first saw their name in lights, Marquee is inspired by classic 1950s film star glamour – and this glamour is at the heart of everything we offer. Our talented hair masters love what they do, delivering incredible style and an exceptional customer experience first time, every time.

We’re stylish. Innovative. Inspirational. And more than anything, we’re different. Our obsessive devotion to great hair delivers head-turning style with remarkable service every time, while our welcoming and luxurious surroundings make you feel relaxed and refreshed. We’ve sourced Japanese flatbed backwash chairs with your comfort in mind, and our in-house trichology services help you get to the root of any tricky problems. And we’ve scoured the globe – literally – handpicking ecologically and animal friendly products that don’t just make you look good, they make you feel good too.

We cut and we colour; core services that no girl can do without. But we know you want more. That’s why our team of top stylists – fresh from big brand salons in London – have put together a menu of Hollywood’s hottest trends, tricks and treatments to deliver red-carpet-ready hair.

We’re passionate about what we do, and we’ve handpicked a team of experts that share our obsession with getting it right. Our talented hair masters combine the perfect blend of technical and creative brilliance to ensure you get the look that suits you, your hair, and your lifestyle. We look, listen and collaborate to understand exactly what you want, so you step out of Marquee feeling dangerously irresistible.

Shabana Karim | Founder: Every great story needs a leading lady so let us introduce you to ours. Global style ambassador and founder of The Nail Spa – the region’s first spa solely for hands and feet – Shabana made the classic mani-pedi an essential experience for Dubai’s fashionistas. In 2013 Shabana added hair care to her style repertoire with the premiere of Marquee. By filling Marquee with star products and creative hair masters sourced from across the globe, Shabana ensures the spotlight shines firmly on the UAE.

Cat Hawkes | Artistic Director: Passionate about her profession and a self-confessed workaholic, Cat eats, sleeps, and breathes hair and make-up. Cat developed her talent at the London College of Fashion and has worked as a stylist and make-up artist at top London salons and many magazines, including bridal. She knows that through her work she can give people a confidence that reveals their own inner beauty, and it is this belief that has driven her to become the artistically accomplished professional that she is today. Having successfully turned her passion into a chain of hair salons in her native London, Cat has now brought her leading lady expertise to Marquee.
