In December of 2012 Braun Silk-epil 5, which is all about smooth skin confidence invited girls from across the region to be shortlisted as the 4 candidates who would undergo confidence make-overs by a panel of experts. Three leading experts along with Saudi Arabia’s inspirational young artist, Aseel Omran picked 4 candidates from over hundreds entries to take part in these workshops.
Three leading experts, image consultant Mimi Raad, skin expert, Dr. Shazia Ali, and psychologist, Samineh Shaheem created workshops and became mentors in an effort to elevate the candidates’ self-confidence and prepare them for life’s challenges.
“From the first moment I saw melody there was something special about her, says, Samineh Shaheem, the expert psychologist. There was this calm sort of feminine disposition where her soft voice didn’t exhibit her confidence and we worked together to achieve that”, explained Samineh.
“True beauty is not about perfection but having confidence in your own abilities”, says, Bushra Iqbal, Brand Manager, Braun Beauty, Arabian Peninsula. With this competition our aim was to help young girls in the region discover the beauty of self-confidence and that without confidence true beauty is never complete”,
