TheFace: Lamia Abdulmohsen, whose micropigmentation skills have helped women regain self-confidence

  • Abdulmohsen: I went all the way to Beirut to study micropigmentation with make-up specialist Roula Karam
  • Abdulmohsen: I also want to open my own center to train Saudi women to specialize in the same field, so that they can help and support other women as well

I am Saudi woman with 13 years of experience working in human resources and development. However, my dream was to establish a business and specialize in a field that can serve my community in a very human way. To that end, I went all the way to Beirut to study micropigmentation with make-up specialist Roula Karam. I earned international certification, not only in Lebanon but the UK as well, as a specialist in eyebrow micropigmentation. I have a lot of Saudi clients, along with other nationalities, and I help them regain their confidence and put smiles back on their faces. My goal is to help improve the self-confidence of all women, especially those whose hair has fallen out as a result of diseases such as cancer or alopecia, by applying hair stokes using a 3D micropigmentation technique. I hope this makes them happier about how they look when they see themselves in the mirror. I also want to open my own center to train Saudi women to specialize in the same field, so that they can help and support other women as well.

MoU signed to facilitate investment in Saudi Arabia

RIYADH: The Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA) and the Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to step up cooperation, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Thursday.

Under the MoU, the two authorities will establish a joint working group to boost cooperation in several areas including facilitation provided to investors, conducting economic studies of the market, building partnerships with commercial and industrial bodies and local companies, launching businesses, promoting the ease of doing business, providing logistic support, participating in local and international exhibitions, forums and special visits and exchanging knowledge and information.

All this will predominantly be in aid of attracting local and foreign investors. 

“SAGIA believes in the importance of such cooperation that can unify and multiply the efforts in a way that sets the world’s attention on the Kingdom’s cultural and heritage treasures and investment opportunities,” said SAGIA Gov. Ibrahim Al-Omar.

“This is done through close cooperation with DGDA to highlight these opportunities and market them internationally and locally. This MoU is a step in the right direction to achieve the objectives and directives of both bodies.”

Jerry Inzerillo, CEO of the DGDA, said: “Cooperating with SAGIA is one of the most important international investment motors to attract local and international investments to the Kingdom. This comes at a time where developing the Kingdom’s investment infrastructure is found within the objectives of its Vision 2030.

“At DGDA, we aim at attracting the best technologies and regional and international investments to the Kingdom. This will contribute to the improvement of the local economy and promote our objectives seeking to turn Diriyah into the Kingdom’s gem and an international economic tourist destination,” he added.
