Hajaz has worked at Nino Milano for five years.  This is her first hairdressing job after training at Manchester college.

Although she enjoys her job, hairdressing is not the career path Hazja had orgininally planned.  Whilst working part time at Nino Milano, she is also studying for another qualification in interior design, an area she has always been interested in.  Both her studies and her role at the salon allow her to be creative, particularly when doing ‘hair-up’.

Styling and wedding hair are Hazja’s specialist areas, as well highlights.  She likes to be as creative as she can and is constantly looking in magazines and the internet for inspiration and the lastest styles.

Originally from Northern Iraq, Hazja is Kurdish.  Before moving to Manchester seven years ago, she lived in Holland for a while.  As a result of having lived in many different countries, Hazja is fluent in Kurdish, Dutch and English!

As well as enjoying living in a big city like Manchester, Hazja likes to go home and visit her family twice a year.  She is married and has a four year old daughter, Yara.
