Master Stylist & Co-owner

As a child growing up in Tanzania, Sheila Hassan dreamed of being a hairstylist. She used to accompany her aunt to the local hair salon where she was captivated by how hair transformed into different colours and styles. Farzana decided to follow in her mom’s footsteps and headed to New York after high school to study advanced hairstyling. While Farzana was offered great opportunities there, she was keen to return home and work with her mom. “We complement each other. I love coming to work every day.”
