Born and raised in Morocco, Hamid developed a keen eye for fashion and beauty early on. Further influenced by Boho Chic style, Hamid translated his creativity and fashion savoir faire into the beauty industry when he moved to the US. In 2002, he began working at Leon and Co, drawn to this particular salon because of its excellent reputation and internationally known leadership. Hamid devoted himself to two full years of training under Leon himself. Both men continue to uphold ongoing education as paramount to success, believing that a crucial part of the salon’s success is constant education and talent development. Hamid has been recognized with various awards and certifications throughout his career, including Advanced Cutting and Balayage Technique from Jamison Shaw Academy, and Color Certification from both Wella and Tocco Magico, in addition to spending time traveling with Leon to participate in numerous photo shoots for magazines and special events. Hamid strives to make each of his client’s experiences unique and uplifting, and his devoted clientele reflects this commitment. Far more than just a creator of beautiful hairstyles, Hamid’s color and cut expertise mean that his clients leave with a color and cut that suit their life and reflect their personality. In 2016, Hamid was promoted to Salon Manager. His commitment to growth and eye for excellence make him the right person to lead our team of talented stylists toward continued success and renown.
