With over 17 years experience working in the beauty industry, Lydia Espin was inspired by her clients to open a Beauty Salon for women in Dubai.

Her vision was to create a personal salon experience that made women feel they were stepping out of the fast lane and into an environment where they were welcomed with open arms. With Lydia’s drive, determination and demand for quality this vision became a reality when Essa Beauty opened its doors in April 2012 and is exactly that a warm, friendly and tranquil retreat where clients feel immediately at home, relaxed and ready to be pampered.


"Launching a beauty salon has always been a dream of mine, and even now I have to pinch myself to believe that Essa Beauty has been open for business for over 7 years! A few people have asked where the name ‘Essa’ comes from, and simply it is a term of endearment that my parents call each other referring to our surname - it always reminds me of them!


I have two passions, one is helping women achieve beautiful skin and the other is to ensure we provide the highest standards and best practice in all our treatments.


I hope you enjoy your experience at Essa as much as I do.”
