ABHA: Businesswoman and chairperson of the Beauty Salons Committee of the Asharqia Chamber Shua’a Al-Dehailan has said that beauty salons in Saudi Arabia could provide more than 70,000 jobs for Saudi women. She pointed at the possibility of young Saudi women taking advantage of modern technology in the field which could open up job opportunities for them.
She added that experienced businesswomen were required to mentor and guide these young women into available investment opportunities.
Through her experience as a businesswoman, Al-Dehailan indicated the importance of understanding and being fully aware of work culture, responsibility and knowledge of professional ethics as a prerequisite for success.
Al-Dehailan explained her investment career and experience in the beauty field. She told the story of how she got into the sector and her experience which she gained from five years of working and convincing customers of her skills and abilities as a beautician which led her to international festivals and European shows.
As for beauty salon committees, Al-Dehailan explained that the committee in the Eastern Province was the first in the Kingdom and has led the way. She said that the committee sought to create a new way of doing business in the beauty field.
Al-Dehailan called on the Abha Chamber to set up a committee for beauty centers, pointing out its role in delivering the voice of beauty salon owners to officials, and finding appropriate solutions which will benefit businesswomen and women investors in this area.
The businesswoman opened the door to discussion with more than 50 beneficiaries of the program. She addressed the most important problems regarding recruitment and provision of cadres, the mechanisms of organization and the lack of trained staff.
The secretary-general of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Abha, Abd Allah Al-Zahrani, indicated that the Businesswomen's Center in the Abha Chamber works through "My Experience" program by using the experiences of businesswomen from different regions of the Kingdom to businesswomen in Abha.
