A stylish head of professionally colored hair is often no accident. Cut, color, shape, and style all play critical parts in bringing our looks together. A great hairstylist is an artist and a true master of his craft. For most people, it’s all about having fun with color. Hair color allows people the chance to experiment, giving them the creativity to express themselves. Whether a client is trying to achieve a brighter, sun-kissed look or a darker, sultry look hair designer Rafi Kouyoumjian approaches the challenge with talent and flair.

Known as the best hair designer in the United Arab Emirates, Rafi is truly gifted when it comes to hair color. “Hair color takes tremendous patience and skill,” explains Rafi. “It is a talent that takes dedication to master. With so many tools and techniques available, I am always learning to deliver the best results to my clients.” Currently, a stylist at the highly acclaimed Beauty Spot at the Anantara Hotel in Abu Dhabi Rafi creates hair transformations that can be described as magical.

An industry veteran with 15 years of experience, Rafi always knew he wanted to be in hair design. “I chose a career in hairstyling because it’s an art, and it’s fun to be around women making them beautiful and listening to them,” states Rafi. With an extensive client list and rave reviews, word spread quickly throughout the region that Rafi was not only a magician when it comes to hair color but one of the best colorists in the UAE. 

“Color is beautiful, and I find the whole process of color transformation to be quite artistic,” explains Rafi. “It’s all about listening to what the client wants and finding the right shades and tones to bring out their natural beauty.” Just one look at his Instagram page @rafikouyoumjian, and his posts and stories showcase his natural talent. Whether it be blondes, redheads, or brunettes, Rafi truly has a grasp on bringing out vibrant and rich colors in his clients’ hairstyles. 

While Rafi is a full-service stylist, it is evident that his talent lends well to color. Highlights, full-process, or balayage Rafi hits the mark every time. When he isn’t at the salon, Rafi enjoys traveling, fashion, and life in the vibrant city of Abu Dhabi. Rafi Kouyoumjian is transforming looks throughout the city one color at a time. 

Although Jeetu Likhar grew up with strict parents and was never allowed to have videogames or consoles at home, his relationship with gaming started at a young age through social interactions at gaming centres and his friends houses. With the advent of social media and the internet, he fell in love with gaming and movies even more because of how strong the bond of the online community was. Although now he is married with two kids, a beautiful job, and a comfortable job at a bank, gaming will always hold a special place in his heart.
