How Four One One salon is rewriting the beauty narrative in Qatar
Several years of trying out multiple salons, one thing is pretty clear – we don’t go to the salon to just look a certain way. We go to feel a certain way. And with that mission at the forefront, Four One One salon in Doha is creating beauty experiences with a difference.
For years, we’ve been inundated with advertisements about skincare and beauty treatments that can make us look and feel better. These spectacular before-after transformations come at the heavy price of a fine print that’s usually skipped.
The long-term side effects aren’t just on our skin and bodies, they’re on the environment too. Introducing Qatar’s very first luxury natural beauty destination, Four One One salon is changing the way we perceive and experience beauty and skincare.
The award-winning salon and finalist at Beauty World Middle East Awards offers some of the best skincare, treatments, massages, and skin and hair products highlighted by the use of all-natural Korean products.
With two British skin therapists, some of the city’s top massage therapists, international hair professionals, a homegrown, 10 free (10 harmful chemicals removed) vegan certified halal and vegan breathable nail polish line, a unique Korean lash extension system called Wink Magic, BL Lashes, Mamunia natural air fresheners and fabric deodorizers, fabulous hand and feet treatments by Koelf, and its own hammam inspired body ritual it’s no surprise that Four One One salon is easily the country’s most unique beauty offering.
Eco-friendly beauty and skincare are taking over the globe – and Four One One is spearheading some very unique and interesting green beauty initiatives in the local Qatari industry. The salon runs on an ethos where awareness and conservation are at the helm.
They want to do everything possible to save the Earth’s natural resources and reduce their carbon footprint on the planet.
They’ve made great strides with their progressive offerings that are as luxurious as they are eco-conscious. When you book an appointment at Four One One, you get to indulge in natural, vegan, organic, cruelty-free, and environmentally friendly products with sustainable packaging and positive impact.
Selected by one of the local recycling companies as their Green Ambassador, the salon is additionally always looking for ways to produce natural energy.

Diamonds may have been girls’ best friends, but nowadays it's skincare. And this isn’t a regular best friend – this is a luxurious one that contains natural, active ingredients that target a range of skin concerns. Ladamer, the professional Korean facial and skincare line at Four One One is the only brand you’ll ever need.
Its secret is in its patented Acell-300 oriental herb complex, which has proven to increase moisture within the skin, also creating a barrier over the skin to lock in herbs and nutrients.

The skin therapists are experts at treating issues such as acne, pigmentation, dryness, sensitivity, sun damage, and rosacea.

The experience is enhanced with a skin-specific Ampoule. With more than 58 natural skin-specific facial products and 6 specialty natural massage products from Ladamer, rest assured you’re leaving with a clear, healthy, and glowing complexion.

Game-changing vegan nail care - a Qatari brand
Four One One’s homegrown nail care brand is manufactured and named with the Qatari community and citizens in mind. It has gone all out and has manufactured the Pantone color of the Qatari Flag naming it “al Adaam”.
These are 10 free vegan halal certified and breathable nail polishes, all of which are non-toxic, plant-based, and cruelty-free. The polishes last for 7-10 days and dry in 3 minutes. Safe for children and pregnant women too, these polishes were nominated as finalists by Beauty World Middle East in the Game Changer, Homegrown Talent category within just six months of launching.

Happiness is a hammam ritual
If 100 minutes of happiness sounds like you, the Four One One Detoxifying Hammam-Inspired Ritual is a great place to start. The ritual begins with a lemon-coffee-olive stone scrub, followed by a rose and jasmine rhassoul clay application. After cleansing, a soft water mist follows, with a full-body massage incorporating cardamom amber oil. Finally, a tangerine fig buttercream application closes the session.
And for those who are keen to repair and replenish their skin, the Four One One Lymphatic Ritual transforms the texture and tone of the skin through the regenerative powers of vitamin-rich marine plants, arctic white peat, organic mushrooms, and sun-filled berries for a complete therapeutic experience. This ritual is perfect for those who have sunburn, pregnant, severe sensitivity, eczema, and psoriasis.
