When did you realise that hair was your passion and how did it develop into your career? How did you get into this industry?
I always had a passion for doing hair. My mother wanted me to go to hair school when I was a teenager but I was afraid
of getting picked on so I didn’t do it. It wasn’t until I was in my mid 20s and having met a lot of celebrity hairdressers
that I realized you could make a career out of this. Everything took off really quickly for me despite having to do a lot
of work to get to where I’m at, but, it has always been really fun and when you love what you do it doesn’t feel like work.
What’s the easiest way for Ohlala readers to take their hair from a day in the office to happy hour and still look great?
Taking into consideration the humidity we face in the Kingdom of Bahrain…
Playing with texture is the best way to play with your look and take it from day to night. Tying it up into a loose chignon
during the day allows you to naturally get loose waves when you take it down at night.
Which hair product should every lady covet?
Moisture is key for healthy hair. Natural oils are probably my favourite way to hydrate the hair the night before
you wash it, such as matrix biolage raw oil.
What is your #1 hair care tip?
Keeping your highlights within four shades of your natural hair colour. This keeps the hair at its best condition and
is the most flattering on your skin. Going any lighter or darker than four shades can be harsh and can compromise
the integrity of your hair.

The thing I love about Bahrain and Purple Patchouli is that the girls really make me feel like family. They have a great
attention to fashion and style and are adventurous with their looks.
