    She's also loaded. Her family wealth amounts in the $ tens of millions if not more. She has her own fashion line locally and belongs to the local jet set...coterie of the rich and famous.

    Yeah not my style exactly but some people's tastes - well let's just say money doesn't buy taste. The designers are catering to those folks.

    Nahila Hedayet ON BRIDES-TO-BE
    4 minutes read

    From well-devised hair care services to spectacular make up, Prive’ Salon and Spa has gained a
    considerable amount of popularity for its range of unmatchable services. In a conversation with
    Nahila Hedayet, the mastermind behind this initiative, Persa Sanjana Hussain digs a little deeper to
    find out about how she makes the magic work.

    [​IMG]
    Nahila Hedayet

    The journey dates back to 2009, when Nahila started learning makeup little by little and felt a spark of
    passion. She feels that her life truly started to make sense when she found the courage to do what she
    wanted to do alongside taking care of her family. Once she started the rest followed almost easily. “All
    my clients were appreciating my work and I was getting lots of good feedback. The love and
    appreciation I get from my clients made me realize that this is the career I want to pursue.”

    It is a huge responsibility to be a person brides rely on to make them look good on their big day. Despite
    the pressure, she assures that it is the visible imprint of pure joy in the faces of the brides that keeps her
    going.

    While talking about her countless achievements Nahila seemed to feel most strongly for being a part of
    the New York Fashion Week on behalf of Unilever Bangladesh. “Being backstage with renowned and
    very creative topnotch hairstylists and makeup artists, see them work and getting tips and tricks from
    them was all part of this amazing experience. New York fashion week is a huge fashion event and me
    being there as a first stylist ever from Bangladesh was a huge thing for me.”

    The diva says that she would have been a corporate lawyer if not a beautician. But here is an interesting
    perception that she shared: “I guess somehow life takes twists and turns and lead you to your destiny
    without your permission,” speaking of which, we couldn’t be any more glad that life led her into being
    an artist. She defines an ideal life as the one where you draw the perfect balance between work and
    personal life and enjoy both equally. She opines, “What you want in your life and what you are
    projecting towards the people surrounding you defines you. Life is not perfect and life is only ideal when
    you are happy in it.”

    Here are 5five of the FAQs that we wanted this talented beautician to answer for us:

    1) If you had to choose the four most important makeup items for an everyday look, what would
    they be?
    A little bit mascara can give a wonderful definition to your beautiful eyes. Concealer can cover just what you want especially those dark circles under the eyes and make you look more fresh and awake. Get your face look lively and vibrant by putting some blush and a lip tint. These four products can make a big difference to beautify and define your gorgeous features.


    2) What are the three tips that you have to give to the to-be-brides of the season?
    Wedding preparations can be very stressful, you can keep yourself calm by taking care of yourself. Start eating healthy food and drink lots of water.It is very important that you take care of your skin and hair as well so you look perfect on your big day. Besides, do a lot of research on hair and makeup styles so you are aware of the upcoming trends this will give you a lot of ideas to choose the perfect look that will go with your personality.

    3) What are the hair treatments that busy women should go for?

    Deep conditioning is something that is required for all types of hair once a while. It is something that you can do in shower and it doesn’t require much of a time. Oiling your hair is something very traditional and relaxing and it also helps to moisturize your scalp and dry ends. But if you are a looking for something more advanced than Keratin infused hair treatment is a perfect solution for anyone who is too busy to take care of their hair on daily basis. This treatment lasts for three to four months. Keratin treatment nourishes your hair by restoring the hair proteins. It helps to get rid of the frizzy hair and makes your hair more manageable.

    4) Brides usually have to put on a lot of makeup, how can they prepare themselves better for the
    functions?

    I always advise my brides to prep their skin ahead for their upcoming functions. Flawless skin doesn’t require much makeup and it's only achievable if your skin is well prepared. Also, one must cleanse their skin properly at night before going to bed and make sure there is no makeup left on the skin. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing are the three simple steps that can do wonders for your skin. Most of the skin problems are due to sun damage so applying sun block is also very crucial.

    5) Newlyweds usually have a lot of “dawats” to attend: What tips would you give the new brides
    for an evening and a day look?

    For daytime keep it fresh and simple — minimal makeup is always recommended. Prep your skin with a good primer and apply few drops of foundation concealing your under eyes will help to reduce puffiness if you haven’t had a good night's sleep. To make your daytime simple look more elegant apply winged liner, highlight your cheekbones and apply any bold lipstick to look effortlessly beautiful. For your night events go full glam. You can apply a full coverage foundation along with your favorite primer. Highlight and contour your face to define your features. For eyes the options are honestly endless but go for something that is suitable for your eye shape. If you are doing dark eyes go for lighter lips and if you are keeping your eyes light go for bold lips, keep this old trick of variation in your mind and you are good to go. There are no definite thumb rules to follow when it comes to makeup. At the end of the day, it is all about your comfort level.

    Jessia Islam finished with flying colors at the top of the modeling world in Bangladesh by combining elegance and an acute sense of fashion. She became a beauty pageant titleholder. Luck worked in her favor in striking gold in 2017 at the Miss World Bangladesh pageant. Riding on the weave of her success, she astutely made permanent her mooring in the modeling industry as this was what she always cherished since childhood.[​IMG]
    She gave herself body and soul in the pursuit of fame. Though her parents didn’t feel modeling to be an option at first, Jessia was determined to become a byword for elegance in the fashion industry.
    Preparedness is an issue that eternally troubles all newcomers. The biggest mistakes the aspiring models can make is to think that having good looks is enough to enter the fashion world. But beauty must be interlaced with fashion knowledge. Jessia is a good example of such a winning combination.
    This beautiful, magnificent and talented girl took part in Miss Bangladesh “without a moment’s readiness.” She is disarmingly honest about her surprise in making it to the top. Jessica testifies to the fact that her wish was to participate in Lux Superstar beauty pageant, “but all on a sudden, she came to know about Miss Bangladesh and gave it a shot.” Surprisingly and after loads of hazards, she finally did bear away the bell! Jessia successfully and proudly carried the day by appearing in the first position. Not only this, she also represented Bangladesh in Miss World competition held in China where she placed in the top 40.

    Since the start, Jessia has been eager to explore all the facets deemed ennobling to any first-rate model working to make headway in the industry. Her desire has been to traverse all the nodes of possibilities to come full circle in her career. She has performed in TVCs, brand photoshoots, modeling for quite a long time since she harbored the wish to join the rank of the others on the astral sphere — those who rule the roost in the fashion world.
    Jessia completed her A level and wishes to continue her studies simultaneously besides her walk of life.
    She is aware that the tile Miss Bangladesh entails massive responsibility. She is waiting for a level playing field take on the challenges that lie ahead. To work hard is something that she constantly wills since she is also “ready to prove her detractors wrong about her capability.”

    Her setbacks during her flight to success haven’t deterred her from the course she had set for herself. For example, when she was in Miss World, her Facebook account was hacked and she could not even promote herself as well as her own country. Moreover, she faced much confusion during Miss Bangladesh regarding the conclusion which is probably known by all. The model who comes off as an embodiment of grace, Jessia has also developed a persona brave enough to stave off all negative criticism to be ever so ready to turn a new leaf over to receive the laurels that await her.

    She loves to read books, watch movies, go for shopping, and hangout with friends. She has not started travelling yet but soon will — it tops her “to do” list. She is choosy about her “idols”. Her favorite actors — hard working people she admires include the likes of Emma Watson, Angelina Jolie, Arefin Shuvo, Sakib Khan, Nusrat Faria and many more. She loves every ion that has to do with Victoria’s Secret and can’t resist her temptation for a piece of pizza.

    This youthful soul thinks that her generation has a massive role to play in the film industry and she wishes to leave a mark on that “zone” of her own accord. Her ultimate wish is to ready herself to stay at the top of the race. Alongside all the other competent souls, she too wants to land on the good book of the industry, since she feels that — God does what He does for the good.

    [​IMG]Wedding photographers are often the MVP of weddings, snapping every precious moment of your big day and encapsulating them in a tangible form, to be cherished for the rest of your life and beyond. From a quick snap of your smile when you see your loved ones to a shot of your favorite relatives dolled up and grouped together striking a pose for the 100th picture, each moment is carefully picked, framed and given life to by these photographers. Persa Sanjana Hussain breaks down how this art stills the lived moments into memory.

    How it started: I have always been very passionate towards photography. The idea of capturing things the way I see through my eyes has always fascinated me. So, I always went about taking photos of objects, sceneries and my dearest people whenever I could.However, I took it as my profession in 2010 when people started admiring my work and referring me to their friends and family for photography jobs.

    Most enjoyable part about work: For me, capturing things the way I see them is my most favorite part about my job. Also my other favorite part is being able to capture one’s life’s special moments for an eternity. It’s a very exhilarating experience to be a part of someone’s life’s most important days.

    [​IMG]

    Competitive Advantage: It would definitely would be my passion towards photography,careful attention to detail, and my perspective.

    Looking Forward to: Excel in my passion and of course being able to provide quality in this highly saturated industry.


    One Change to be made to the Industry: One thing that I want to change about the industry is prioritizing quantity over quality. This is something that both the photographers and their clients have to understand. Quality should always be first priority for both parties.


    [​IMG]

    Moment closest to Heart: I’d say that it’s totally clichéd and typical, but I cannot ever get over my very first professional wedding photography event. I was so young, nervous and excited! I ended up capturing double the amount of pictures that I capture now because I wanted to utilize everything as much as I could!
