Meet Gladys – your JVT beauty maven!

Gladys is for real; she does exist. And a very kind lady she is. If you haven’t yet experienced the latest in the JVT cosmetics scene, it’s time to meet Gladys!

I had the good fortune to meet her when I popped into Gladys Beauty Saloon last week. I stopped by, unannounced, and treated myself to a manicure and pedicure.  I can honestly say that I was not disappointed! As they didn’t know who I was, I observed and enjoyed the treatment. I was well taken care of by the lovely ladies who told me a bit more about the Saloon and its beginnings.


Then I noticed Gladys. She was testing the latest paraffin wax treatment herself. It seems that Gladys wants to be sure her clients are getting the best so on this day she was trying out a new product she plans to offer. With twenty five years of work experience, Gladys understands quality. She is keen to offer the best services and especially wishes to make you feel right at home. Warm and welcoming, Gladys didn’t hesitate to pull open the front door to greet new arrivals. As she told me, “I just love the job of serving our clients.”


After my treatment, I introduced myself and got the scoop on Gladys.  Having spent her formative years in the beauty business, a combination of factors led Gladys to open her own shop fifteen years ago with her first beauty parlour in Karama. The JVT addition is the fifth saloon she has opened, on 20th October, with others in Motor City, Dubai Marina and Al Barsha proudly flanking her original premises. She told me some stories of the early days, counting out her earnings with just enough to pay her team. Today, she leads her beauty empire with 60 ladies in a hands-on manner and with a great passion for her field.


It’s wonderful to now count a full-service saloon inside JVT. While I only had time for a mani/pedi, there are all the options one would expect from full body massage treatments, eyebrow threading, leg waxing, hair cutting, coloring and styling. Do away with your tension and worries while Gladys girls take care of your hair, skin or nails! I, for sure, will be heading back for myself and with my girls for their next hair cuts.

Sorry for the guys, but this place is not for you. However, I recommend you stop in nevertheless and reserve a treatment for your lovely wife or girlfriend. It’s a great idea for a birthday gift, a delightful way to mark any holiday or why not, just to say ‘thank you’ to a special woman in your life.
