Fuad was born in overseas in Bethlehem. During his youth, he realized that he had a natural flair for hair design. While traveling through the Middle East and Europe, he continued his pursuit for excellence in his chosen field. Fuad traveled to the United States in 1978 to expand his opportunities. He received his U.S. Cosmetology License and became a member of the National Cosmetology Association. He has traveled to many major American cities as a Platform Artist, demonstrating and sharing his stylist expertise with both national and international design artists. His European travels have also continued, and he has attended and participated in a variety of shows overseas, keeping him current in design trends for his state-side clients.

Fuad continues to enjoy sharing his expertise with fellow stylists locally and around the world, but his passion is to bring the most current looks and colors to his clients here in Illinois.
