Originally from Tunisia, Al-Hasna is now a familiar face in and around Kuwait. Read on to discover her beauty routine, her secret talent and her guilty pleasure!
Please introduce yourself to our readers.
I am Hasna. I am from Tunisia. I am currently a freelance fashion and beauty model.
When and how did you come to Kuwait?
I came to work in Kuwait for a different position around 8 years ago but recently became a full-time model.
Tell us about your education.
I completed university in Tunis in Physical Education and later worked as a volleyball, Zumba and Physical Education trainer also specializing in Special Needs.
Why did you change your field to modelling?
Since childhood, I had a dream to be a model and I received modelling offers when I was teenager. But I decided to complete my education first. In the past few years, however, people thought I was a model or a star and I started to get offers. That was when I decided to make it a full-time profession, officially one year ago.
What was your first modelling job in Kuwait?
It was for a local fashion store.
Did you find any difficulties during your first job?
Yes, initially I had the power to learn but needed some guidance and support in posing. I mastered this later and now have no problem in posing.
Who is your favourite photographer in Kuwait?
I have worked with many local and international photographers but I would certainly choose Shikhoon who supported me and pushed me to where I am today.
What is your personal style?
I like dresses which are elegant and can bring out the feminine body in the most beautiful way.
What would you say is your special trait or defining feature?
My smile. When I smile, my eyes don’t close which is not very common and my clients like this.
What are your hobbies?
I love dancing, travelling and shopping.
Which is your favourite travel destination and why?
My country, Tunisia. Because it is a small world in itself.
What is your opinion about the modelling scene in Kuwait for a beginner?
I see lots of beautiful faces modelling in Kuwait. Some of them are professional and some of them are still struggling to find their niche. But eventually, everyone will take his or her share of the energy they put into the work.
What is your beauty routine?
As I specialized in fitness I do regular exercises in the morning and drink a lot of water and fresh juices. I also sleep well and try to avoid anything that brings stress.
How do you stay confident and full of energy?
I get confidence from the way people look at my work and appreciate it and also when they like me as a person. This gives me more energy and confidence to give better results.
Any good memories from your modelling projects?
My first photo session was both the most difficult and the most fun because I entered as a beginner without experience and was very natural. It went very well. Now I am more disciplined and understand how it works. But the fun part is that most of my followers love my first work.
What is your favourite music or singer?
I love French music and my favourite singer is Celine Dion.
Your favourite all time movie?
The Wedding Date.
What is your guilty pleasure?
I love Fatayer.
Do you have a secret talent?
I am a good hip-hop dancer.
What is your go-to everyday outfit?
I always love easy and simple dresses.
What is your biggest dream to achieve?
To see my photos everywhere I go.
Your favourite brands?
I love ZARA as a brand but I definitely like GUCCI.
What is a favourite must for you to bring to a shoot?
I have a small black travel pack that has all my essential things and I cannot go to a shoot without it.
How do you feel to be on the cover of CP Magazine?
This is the first step of my dream. I feel proud and happy that I am going in the right direction.
