I work with celebrities from all around the world and it's always nice to return to a celebrity I know or to also meet a new one, which was my case with Joelle Mardinian. This little film is made up from photographed images by Banan Alawneh of behind the scene shots of me working on Joelle's hair.
Joelle was a wonderful person to work with. She totally trusted me and allowed us to do with her hair whatever was needed. After a color touch up, I gave her a haircut and all the other prep necessities for our TV hair commercial. The day was very long, about 20 hours in total, but she was as fresh and happy after all these hours as she was when arriving at 6.00am.
Joelle is a renowned tv personality on MBC's weekly reality show entitled "Joelle", where she focuses on the beauty transformations and complete makeovers of individual women allowing them to find their true beauty - incorporating in this mission all the services her celebrity salon "Maison de Joelle" offers. She launched an online forum where she could also answer all her fans' questions related to beauty and fashion.
Find below a list of her salons in the Middle East:
Maison de Joelle Jumeirah - Dubai, UAE

Maison de Joelle Hilton Capital Grand Hotel -Abu Dhabi

Joelle is also a prominent makeup artist and a leading beauty expert in the Middle East and acts as regional creative director for the renowned cosmetic brand Max Factor. She opened "Clinica Joelle", a cosmetic surgery and non-surgical solutions group in Dubai - Emirates. The clinic is a collaboration of A list doctors, surgeons, slimming experts and beauty consultants who are well known in their own field and who have helped and treated an unprecedented number of regional celebrities.
I was happy to meet Joelle and to work with her and I will take this occasion to thank her and her team for making me feel so welcome. I learnt this little sentence in Arabic " شكرا جزيلا جويل ، أنا سعيدة جدا بمقابلتك ".
And to all of Joelle's fans who have since joined me on Instagram @wendyiles , a big thank you, I've been happy to be connected with all of you !
