Banan Mahmoud

Hair Stylist

Banan is a queer woman of colour born and raised in Egypt, she began her career in hair after recognising how little space and opportunities were afforded to women of colour with textured hair.

Her repertoire includes hair cutting, hair styling and make up artistry for film, television and editorial. Some of her work can be seen in Wentworth, Preacher, Vogue Italia and for 66 Records.

Banan’s style is influenced by natural textures and effortless shapes that work to enhance natural beauty. She offers a space where hair is accepted in its true form, so her clients can love themselves authentically. Banan is part of a thriving queer community and always strives to create safe and inclusive spaces.
