That Hair Tho – or THT –is the new salon to open in JLT, and it’s championing clean and sustainable beauty.

While it may be becoming easier and easier to rule out animal-derived ingredients from your meals, going plant-based with your fashion and beauty choices can be a little more complex.


But if you’re looking for a vegan-friendly option next time you need (or want) to visit the hair salon, it’s a little easier now thanks to this new salon that has opened in Jumeirah Lakes Towers.


THT, located within Cluster N, use vegan, gluten-free and sustainable beauty products, and provides a range of services from hair colouring to manicures and pedicures and lash extensions.

As well as catering to those keen to practice clean and cruelty-free beauty, the newcomer also offers bespoke services to women who have undergone chemotherapy or radiation treatments that have led to hair loss.


Kate Darling is the owner of the salon. She began her career at L’Oreal in Australia nearly a decade ago, and now is an expert on global and Middle  Eastern beauty trends. She was a key contributor at the Mercedes Benz Arab Fashion Week, Arab Fashion Council, and Riyadh’s very first ever fashion event.


Kate said: “THT is a dream come true. The beauty industry is a forever changing one. There is never a shortage of new ideas, trends, and there is a constant invention. We aspire to keep up these trends and launch new ones.”


Laura Hepburn heads up the team as the creative director and in-house extensions expert. She’s is hailed as an expert in working with patients suffering hair loss through the use of extensions as well as using other creative systems and solutions.


Elsewhere in the emirate, there are established salons already leading the way for specialist and clean beauty products.


For example, The Organic Glow Beauty Lounge located in Jumeirah Village champions cruelty-free, ‘green’ products, while Aveda Salons (various locations) proudly promote its cruelty-free status.
