1.  Why did you choose to be an Ambassador to Pantene?

I was on a shoot and needed some products.  Went to the store and the only products available were Pantene.  I didn’t think it would work, but I didn’t have a choice.  I was surprised at the results. I began trying other products and using them regularly with clients.  What’s great about Pantene is that it’s available easily everywhere and its like $4. During an interview a beauty editor asked me “What is one product that we wouldn’t suspect would be in your kit?” I told her Pantene and shortly after Pantene contacted me and it went from there.


2.  You work with some of the top industry professionals and forecast and create future trends. It seems as if everything ‘has been done’ how do you keep it new & fresh?

I don’t think ‘everything has been done’.  For me it’s still new and its the first time I’m doing it.  I also believe there is still a lot to be done.

3.  What brings you creativity?

I work with some amazing makeup artists and stylists and together we create.  I also take inspiration from my surroundings, art and It’s like dots, I connect the dots.


4.  How can one bring a runway trend that they like to their everyday lives while still keeping it original?

Everyone is an individual and it’s important to remember that.  Even if everyone’s doing it, its still something new to you.  You have to personalize the trend to suit who you are and your personal style.

5.  You recently styled Natalie Portman’s Hair for the THOR Premiere.  Tell us about her look. 

Her haircut is a sleek and straight long bob cut with a center part which is totally current with ombre tones.  It’s just great to style her and watch her walk out the door looking good.


6.  In the Middle East hair fall and thinning hair, is a huge issue.  What do you think of Pantene’s New Clinicare Thickening Beauty Essence which is launching in 2014?  It’s suppose to give the feel and look of adding 6500 more hair!  What’s the best way to use it?

This is a great product, its very easy to use.  Simply apply it in the roots (you can apply it everywhere if you like) and you’ll notice fuller hair immediately.


7. You haven’t been to the Middle East yet, when are you coming??

I’d love to come to the Middle East with Pantene or with other work.  I’m busy over the next three months with the awards season but I’d love to come.  I love fragrances and I love the culture.  I also love Dr. Lamees Hamdan’s products, they are amazing!  Not sure when I’d be coming but hopefully soon.
