Part of the family: For the third year in a row, Nabila is in charge at the IIFA.
Team Nabila is the official hair and beauty partner of the IIFA Awards for the third year in a row. The powerhouse and woman behind it all, Nabila Maqsood, is in charge of the team of beauty and hair experts from NABILA Salon, ZERO beauty, and N Gents. Some of the most famous people in Bollywood are going to use the creatives’ skills.
The IIFA awards, which take place on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, are known as the “Oscars of Bollywood.” So far, Nabila has been seen hanging out with Farah Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal, Nora Fatehi, and other big names in Bollywood.
NABILA Salon also shared a video from the IIFA press conference on Instagram. At the press conference, she was called on stage to receive the IIFA shield for her work on the platform. She performed with Farah, Rajkumar Rao, Badshah, and other artists.
This time, Nabila also gave a lesson behind the scenes. She told the people there that she was surprised and excited to have been given the chance. In a video of the moment, she introduces herself and shows how team Nabila uses hair and makeup to “completely reinvent images” for TV, movies, and other platforms. “I’ve worked in this field for a long time. “My name is the same as a new look,” she can be heard saying.
In another film on Zero Makeup, Nabila talks to IIFA and says, “We feel like we’re now part of the IIFA family. We’ve been here three times in a row. It’s a great place where we feel welcome. We’ve set up a whole shop here for three days. We also do the artists’ makeup backstage for the awards show and fashion show.”
The team’s first show was at IIFA in 2018. An Indian media and entertainment company called Wizcraft, which was in charge of the IIFA event, and asked Nabila to be one of the backstage partners. “I thought it was a big compliment, since MAC has been the official hair and makeup partner for the awards for many years,” Nabila said with a lot of pride. Being on the same level as such well-known international brands, NABILA Salon was not only an important part of the beauty business in Pakistan, but also in many other places.
With more than 30 years of experience, she has put together some of Pakistan’s most famous star looks for TV and the red carpet.
