Number of years at the salon: Nine years

Career Highlight: A definite career highlight has been watching Glamour evolve into one of the most popular salons in Abu Dhabi. In 2014, we were thrilled to launch Glamour’s second branch. We are also one of the UAE’s first salons to bring in celebrity hairstylists from the UK.
New openings or developments: We debuted a sibling company, Beauty Box, at Beauty Professional Dubai in February. Beauty Box will be a distributor of artisanal and ethically-inclined products in the UAE. With education and training being the core of this new project, we hope it creates an opportunity for salons to diversify their services.
