Over the past 12 years, Houda Hourani has cultivated a lifetime of artistic creativity. As a painter, sculpture and designer, her natural sense of beauty has prepared her to become the world renowned stylist she is today. Her formal training began at the Sally Esser institute and continued under Rany Elalam. Since then, she has refined her expertise as a freelance stylist for runways, photo shoots as well as movie sets. She has been featured with highly acclaimed trend setters such as Nigel Barker and Lilly Ghalichi.

Houda is currently the owner of Salon West, a thriving showcase of 25 highly selected, well-trained hair and makeup artists. Houda’s true talent lies in her innovative nature. Through extensive research and countless hours of practice, she was able to introduce and perfect techniques such as micro feathering to the Midwest. As she approaches the peak of career, Houda is sharing her expertise with others by creating the Houda Hourani Institute.

Outside of her true passion, her world revolves around a talented daughter who is already involved in music and acting. Along with her loving husband, they are co-owners of Aesthetic Consultants, a cosmetic facial augmentation corporation built on the Houda’s philosophy of ingenuity and excellence. In her spare time, she enjoys photography, social media blogging and cooking.

Houda vows to continue her dedication to her craft and push the limits of her specialty. Until then, she would like to extend her sincere gratitude to all of her clients and students who have made her tireless work worthwhile.
