Life at our company

“This salon is my home away from home. They are my second family. I’m given support and I’m nurtured. I made the right decision all those years ago, when I decided to take a leap of faith and work abroad. I can’t imagine my life now if I hadn’t taken this job, my life would certainly not be as colorful. I not only have a career where I am genuinely valued, I live in an amazing country where I have grown as an individual. Experiencing different cultures has opened my eyes, my heart (and my imagination) to new possibilities. This is where I belong- with Kozma and Kozma.” -Jennifer, Senior Hair Stylist

Testimonials

Here is what some of our team members say:

"I made the move from the UK to the middle east in January 2016. I started in Qatar with this company, I stayed there for 6 months, and then had the opportunity to move to Dubai and work for them here. I’ve been here for two years now, and I can honestly say joining this company has been the best decision I ever made! 
To begin with, making the move to the middle east was a scary overwhelming thought, but from the beginning, the company really puts your mind at ease- they take care of everything from your visa, to your flight over, and make sure you are picked up from the airport, and welcomed at your new accommodation by your new roomies!
My first impression was how friendly everyone was. They really go out of their way to help you settle in. I loved meeting stylists from all over the world, all with different stories and skills to share. I’m lucky to have made friends for life since being here.
The things I love most about working for the company is the fact that training and progression are so important to them. The owners are so invested and are always looking out for new trends, products, and techniques. We regularly get training in all aspects of hair, whether it’s improving in skill’s we already know, or learning something totally new!  I personally love the curly techniques we offer, which I would never of had the opportunity to train in if I wasn’t working here. We’re all encouraged to be creative, and any ideas we come up with are always taken on board. Another cool thing is we’re given the opportunity to be involved in events and photoshoots as well, which is always fun!
The company also offers great opportunities for professional progression. I joined as a senior stylist, and recently got promoted to hair department Supervisor, which I’m loving and I’m super grateful for. My confidence has grown personally and professionally, I’ve become stronger as a person, and way more independent.
I love the lifestyle out here- it’s totally different from what I originally expected, and much more relaxed than people think back home. The people here are super friendly, and there’s so many different cultures. The sun is always out, which means lots of pool and beach action! There’s so many nice restaurants and nightlife as well. The huge shopping malls are insane, and there’s always things to do whether its hotels, waterparks, theme parks, or sport and fitness.  I personally love that travelling is so much easier from here- places like the Maldives, and Sri Lanka are only a few hours away, and after meeting clients and friends from all over the world my destination list gets bigger every day!
I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to join Kozma and Kozma, and to be living the life that I do. I’m looking forward to growing even more with the company, and I’m super excited to see what the future brings!"
-Natalie Parkes, Senior Stylist and Hair Department Supervisor, originally from London

"Hi! I’m Veronica Greene. I work as a senior stylist at Kozma and Kozma. I’m originally from the USA and I’ve been working in Qatar for three years. 
Since coming to Kozma and Kozma, I have gained immense technical skills beyond what I could have dreamed. The salon is fast paced, always busy and is well known in the city as the top hair salon in Doha. The opportunities to grow as a stylist here are great since the community is very international. Even as a very experienced stylist, I have learned new ways to cut and color hair since coming here. 
It is very easy to travel from here. I have been to a long list of countries since working here, as the  paid vacation provided is very generous compared to what I had in the United States. With the money I have been able to save while working here I have sought out opportunities like working at runway shows at New York Fashion Week and Miami Swim Week. 
Living in Doha is a comfortable lifestyle. With very minimal overhead expense, I am able to enjoy my days off swimming in one of the luxury hotel pools or meeting up with friends for a walk along the beach. The city is safe and I don’t have to worry about crime or violence here, like I did in the cities I previously lived at in America. When I came here I didn’t know what to expect and I took a chance coming out. I am so happy I did.
I look forward to traveling to London in the near future to study at the Vidal Sassoon academy as part of a rewards incentive created by the company as a way to acknowledge hitting daily and monthly goals and targets."
-Veronica Greene, Senior Stylist, originally from USA

"I am originally from the U.K. and have been working for Kozma and Kozma for almost 5 years.
I joined the Kozma and Kozma team in our original salon in Qatar, as a senior stylist, and I have since progressed to Assistant Manager of the Hair department and was given the exciting opportunity to move to Dubai. Being given this role has given me endless amounts of opportunities to grow and evolve as a person, and within my career. 
My favourite aspect of my job is supporting my fabulous team of amazing stylists and watching them grow into what they are today, I have developed a love to teach, train and pass on any knowledge I have. 
The Middle East has been a great place for me and my home for the past 8 years it has opened my eyes to so many different cultures and people from all over the world and I really couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! I look forward to growing with the Kozma and Kozma family and all of the exciting things we will have for the future of the company."
-Julia Butler, Senior Stylist and Hair Department Assistant Manager, originally from U.K.

"I’ve enjoyed learning the special Kozma natural curly techniques the most. I feel that I’ve really learnt loads about dealing with different textures of hair living in the uae as many of our clients curls vary. I really appreciate and understand so much now about curls and absolutely love wowing our curly clients with our curly service menu. Some of my clients have amusingly named it “the jaw drop moment!” when they see their curls after our informative lesson.
I love the rewards program for our team, which incentivises you to do even better and get recognition for work that you do.
I love living here because there is always something happening- pool parties beach clubs and plenty of ladies nights! 
I’m looking forward to us growing as a team, as living abroad, you become even closer than you would at home. Living together, socialising and working together creates a special bond which you don’t get at your average job."
-Terri-Leigh Bennett, Senior Stylist, Originally from U.K. 

"I’ve been working for Kozma and Kozma for 5 months now.
  When I started with them, I only knew the basics of colour but thanks to the manager doing intimate training with me I’m now colouring more confidently on a daily basis. It’s good to know there is always things to learn and a team from all over the world, to learn from! 
A really cool thing about working for the salon is we all have access to this app called ‘you earned it‘ where we get points for all different things like targets, our appearance, our work- and you can use the points to claim back treatments in the salon like pedicures and facials! Perks of the job and all that! 
I will never look at curly hair the same. I used to be slightly afraid to style it as I wouldn’t have the products/ techniques/method but after being taught the Kozma method, now I am the one showing clients how to style and care for their naturally curly hair. Clients in my chair see their curls like they have never seen before- one client told me ‘how have I had these curls for 30 years and only just seen them like this!!’
I absolutely love the Dubai life style- pool days on days off plus I’m always going to different hotels/ beaches for the latest ladies days and I love the unlimited amount of bars and restaurants to go to. 
I look forward to learning more about different hair types and different cultures from working at Kozma and Kozma."
-Holly Robbins, Senior Stylist, Originally from Birmingham U.K.
 
"My Name is Amber and I moved from the UK to Qatar 4 years ago at the age of 24. 
This was something I have always dreamt about doing, but one of those things I figured would always only be only a dream. 
One day I was innocently browsing the internet and clicked on something that lead me to a Kozma and Kozma recruitment advert. Immediately, I just fell in LOVE with the company culture and I knew I had to be apart of it. This made me take the leap to fulfil this dream. Without a doubt it was the scariest, most rewarding, incredible decision I have ever made. 
During my 4 years of employment at Glow I have worked hard, and have taken every opportunity that has come my way. I have worked my way from senior stylist to Manager of the hair department, for 3 busy locations in Qatar. I often think of how far I have grown in a short space of time- living proof that hard work and dedication pays off. This company has transformed me from a hairdresser to an international hair stylist with management responsibilities. I have acquired a huge amount of skills and they continue to invest to my ever growing knowledge bank- not only the practical side but also the ‘behind the scenes’ running of a successful business. Kozma and Kozma have given me excessive training, both in house and internationally. I have been sent on all expenses paid learning trips- including Spain, Dubai and New York. This is a salon of opportunity. My imagination was encouraged to flow freely and my creativity was nurtured to grow. This has enabled me to create incredible works of art that have been featured in some of the regions biggest magazine's.
Qatar.. what can I write about Qatar to do this beautiful country justice? 
This country has grown to be my home. The experiences this country has given me I will be forever grateful. A place where the sun is always shinning and dining in a 5star restaurant is just the normal thing to do. A place where fellow expat friends become family and your groceries are packed and delivered for you. I love Qatar and always will. It’s my first home from home. 
When I look back on applying for this job 4 years ago, leaving everything behind and starting new on this unknown adventure, I feel incredibly proud at how far I have come and how I have changed as a person. From the travel opportunities to the financial opportunities- an life with Kozma and Kozma is an extraordinary life. 
My only regret is that I didn't do it earlier." 
-Amber McAleavy, Hair Department Manager, Originally from Liverpool, U.K.

"I have loved working for Kozma and Kozma over the past 7 years. What an amazing company to work for as they encourage creativity and push you to do better. 
I started with them as a hair stylist, was promoted to Supervisor, then later Assistant Manager, then I progressed to Manager. With the support and encouragement of a fun and dedicated team I have worked my way up to running all 3 busy locations in Qatar as Operations Manager. 
I was given so much advice and guidance from the company that even on the difficult days, I felt supported. It is a unique opportunity to be able to work with so many talented individuals. 
Living in Qatar is a great way to connect with so many different nationalities. The country is fun and safe to be in.  
I love going to all the 5 star hotels and meeting up with my friends- my favourite is the Kempinski and St Regis. I have befriended so many people from all over the world here and it has really opened my eyes and my mind. 
My weeks are filled with great food from the many amazing restaurants, to trying to burn it all off again in yoga studios, fitness classes and fun water sports like wake boarding. 
Living in Qatar makes so many countries more accessible- my favourite travel spots so far have been Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Zanzibar. I always love planning my next holiday as I know I’m planning my next life changing adventure.
I can honestly say that I have changed so much since moving to Qatar. In the beginning my plan was to move for 1 year. I’m 7 years on now. I would not be in the position in my career I am now without the support of this company. I have been given so many amazing opportunities to be a part of fun projects that have even taken me to other countries.
 The sky’s is the limit with Kozma and Kozma, if you can imagine it, it can be a reality. Kozma and Kozma is not held back by anything as long as you are creative and passionate towards your job they will support you in whatever you want to do. I look forward to continuing my adventure in Qatar and with this company - I know neither will disappoint. "
-Hayley Huggins, Operations Manager, Originally from the U.K.
