About Us

The Nails salon chain and AND Trading beauty distribution company are the realised vision of one Qatari woman, Maha Abdulla AlNaemi. Following a lifelong interest in beauty, nails and haircare coupled with an extensive travel repertoire from which she drew inspiration, Maha Abdulla AlNaemi spotted a niche in Qatar's beauty market and opened her first nails-only salon in the Royal Plaza mall in January 2005.

Success and demand followed and a second nails salon opened before the end of 2005 at the Intercontinental Hotel on the beautiful coast of the Arabian Gulf.

A matter of months later, when the Franck Provost French hair salon brand was looking for an outlet in Qatar, Maha signed up with exclusive rights and opened inside the Four Seasons Spa Doha. This salon combined haircare, beauty and nails services and treatments.

Now growing at a rapid rate, 2008 saw new salon introductions and business ventures by the company. The opening of a Jean Louis David hair salon on the 39th floor of Al Fardan Towers inside the Guerlain branded Spa Chakra in Doha's exquisite West Bay region was coupled with the introduction of a training centre facility and the distribution rights for global nail brand CND, formerly known as Creative Nail Design.

The distribution of CND alongside the salon chain make AND Trading the largest beauty company operating in Qatar. With so many salon professionals working on staff it was a natural progression that AND Trading would train its staff in-house and then facilitate training to other beauty companies and professionals in the country.


2009 will see many more developments, introductions and acquisitions starting with the new nail bar inside Faces, a beauty store located in Landmark mall.


More information will be divulged in the near future…
