This September Style Doctors, UAE team was appointed to hold a styling workshop aimed to build unique and oriental style for the service crew of Han Shi Fu restaurant, which is new hot spot to visit among Dubai’s luxury dining places.

The Han Shi Fu restaurant concept brief

It is a New Chinese restaurant located in historic part of Dubai – City Center, Deira.

The new venue promises “authentic dishes with an infusion of bold flavors, bringing unforgettable experience to its customers.”

Starting from night, the place transfers its mood to spirited upbeat atmosphere with resident DJ sets, for the UAE’s creative youth, influencers, movers and shakers.

With this vision, hospitality and atmosphere in mind, Style Doctors, that are in love with mysterious and deep Asian culture, conducted a styling workshop for the restaurant’s twenty plus service team, helping to build their total image and make them understand the importance of overall look and how it might communicate with its customers.

Our Lead UAE Stylist, Sarah, started with a brief presentation about the significance of a first impression within the hospitality and service industry and how to use it by creating positive memorable impression to customers.

“Clothing has an effect on both the wearer and observer. If you look good, you feel good and if you feel good you perform great.”

Learning how make-up and grooming can help finish off the outfit with our make-up team

The task put upon our team was to give Restaurant’s staff an idea about how the individual look might reflect the whole perception of the place, making it is memorable to it’s customers. Style Doctors’ approach was to come up with outfits that reflects the unique atmosphere of the location at its high level being mostly adopted for day and night conception of the place and at the same time allowing its staff to express their personality.

“The right clothes can increase job performance and boost confidence.”

Our UAE talented stylists came up with a black and white uniform for waiters with touch of stylish accessories like black suspenders and bow ties both for men and woman.  According to psychology of colors, Black is always about sophistication, power, mystery, while white color is about freshness, cleanliness, coolness. Mixed together two colors can reflect the concept of Chinese Yin and Yang philosophy.

Since the restaurant has a bar, as well as several different dining areas, and the decor includes traditional Chinese scrolls and ceramic wall decorations, our stylists came up with a choice of very oriental dresses for hostesses and matching them with a pair of comfortable block heels, suggesting complementing the look with individual necklaces containing natural stones like jade, agate, as “adding an element of interest to your look might be an inspiration for your customers”. This look at its best level reflects design of the place, its mood and oriental cuisine.

Make-up lessons and grooming with Style Doctors UAE

During three hour workshop the Style Doctors team conducted an individual make-up and hair masterclass to the service personnel of the restaurant, discussing how to put on make-up, what to avoid and which hair style suits each individual in the team. For the men’s part, Style Doctors created an individual hair styles and a grooming session.

“Grooming should be an extension of the outfit and attention to the detail is just as important here”.
