Nabila took charge in IIFA for the third consecutive time The Express Tribune
For the third time in a row, Team Nabila is backstage at the IIFA event as their official hair and makeup partner. Nabila Salon, Zero Make Up and N Gent’s staff of makeup and hair masters are led by the powerhouse and woman behind it all, Nabila Maqsood herself. The creators are all set to lend their skills to some of the biggest names in Bollywood.
The IIFA Awards held at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi are considered the ‘Bollywood Oscars’. So far, Nabila has been seen rubbing shoulders with many B-town bigwigs, including Farah Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal, Nora Fathi, and others.
Nabila Salon also took to Instagram to share a video from the IIFA press conference, where she was called on stage to receive the IIFA Shield in recognition of her services to the platform. He shared the stage with Farah, Rajkummar Rao, Badshah and more.
This time Nabila has also offered a master class on the backstage. Addressing the audience, he expressed his happiness at getting the opportunity. In a video capturing the moment, she is seen introducing herself before revealing that Nabila’s team will be using hair and make-up to “completely recreate the images” for TV, film and other platforms. How do you use it? “I have been in this profession for many years. I am synonymous with image makeover,” he can be heard saying.
In another video shared on Zero Makeup, Nabila gave details while interacting with IIFA, saying, “We feel part of the IIFA family now. This is our third time here in a row. We feel welcome. Yes, it’s a great platform. We have a full salon setup for three days. We also take care of the backstage makeup of the actors during the awards ceremony and fashion shows.
The team made its debut at IIFA in 2018 when Wizcraft, an Indian media and entertainment company directing the IIFA event, approached Nabila to join the backstage partners. As for the proudest moment, Nabila said, “I consider it a great compliment as MAC has been the official hair and make-up partner for the awards for the past several years”. Being placed on the same pedestal as such international brands, Nabila Salon was not only an important facet of the beauty industry in Pakistan, but was recognized for its talent in many other countries as well.
With over three decades of experience, she has been the mastermind behind iconic celebrity television and red carpet looks in Pakistan.
