Her background :
Nisreen’s love for “making a difference in the lives of others” comes through in everything she does.

She says the joy it brings her is enormous and one of her favorite quotes is: “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention” - Oscar Wilde
MIAS Beauty Bar was established in December 2019, shortly before businesses were impacted due to the Covid-19 pandemic. MIAS started out as a side hussle, offering specialised express beauty treatments to help women save time, money and look and feel younger while doing so.
The name MIAS is an acronym inspired by the names of our children - Mezaan, Izz-ud-Din, Ayaan and Safiya. As mothers and daughters we sacrifice our time on families and profession, neglecting our much needed beauty treatments. To remedy this we have created the perfect beauty experience that suits your lifestyle and pockets - without taking too much time out of these busy days.
It later evolved into a chain of salons offering aesthetic slimming and wellness treatments, to help women not only transform their outer but inner beauty too 💗
