One thing is for sure all barbers in Dubai are not cut from the same cloth. If you want a #2 clipper cut Julian's is not the place for you. If you want to be able to take in a photo of Richard Gere ,or anyone else for that matter and leave with that cut, then you have found your place. When I 1st started going to Julian's I had my hair cut by the man himself. The fact that he never used the clippers was a shocker. I always left with exactly what I asked for and Julian was open to a conversation about the hairstyle mid-stream to make sure it was on track, refreshing. I have, since going to Julian's, migrated to Benny for hair magic. No clippers, wonderful technique and every bit the artist having given me cuts like Owen Wilson and Mr. Gere. How do you know a good cut? When people say you look like... and that is what you asked for. What I also like about Julian's is the fact that you can have a conversation about the economy, Olympics, current events you name it! Great haircuts and great conversation. There is no doubt the cost of a haircut at Julian's is at the high end of the male grooming scale but in the years I have been going there I have never left the chair feeling I paid for more than I got. Wonderful music, great conversation, a cup of tea and a super cut make this the only place I go for hair styling in Dubai.
