Owner and Designer
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. He has entered numerous competitions over the years, receiving both notoriety and top awards for his excellence in hair design. 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. His greatest pleasure is having them look their best when they leave his chair, creating "happy and sassy" attitudes and unmatchable style.

After spending the majority of his beauty career working in Chicago, Noah has returned to his hometown of Champaign, IL to continue refining his craft at Fuad’s.Noah’s passion for the arts lead him to complete his BFA in Fine and Applied Arts at the University of Illinois, majoring in Industrial Design. Shortly thereafter, he enrolled and achieved his degree in Cosmetology from Paul Mitchell.With over 10 years of experience, Noah brings a fresh perspective to the table. He pulls influence from Japanese and German design aesthetics, as well as minimalistic techniques. With a multifaceted background, Noah has managed to develop a keen eye for color formulation and placement which he applies in practice. His vast professional experience includes hair cutting (apprenticeship in precision English cutting style), ample barbering experience, natural hairstyling, balayage, and hair replacement services (extensions, toupees, micro links, and more). He has worked with numerous celebrity clientele, and provides in-depth consultations with every customer to ensure satisfaction and exceptional results.Noah’s passion for beauty is clear as he states “While working in the fashion/accessory industry, I saw that little changes and enhancements can build up and empower a person. I use this perspective with my fine art / design knowledge and implement it into my work within the beauty industry on an individual basis rather than for the masses. Watching the transformation and empowerment within a person is really what drives my work.”Noah is a seasoned professional who is more than capable of ensuring world-class beauty results.
