 Wafa Saqr, the female hairdresser of Taif, returned to work on Thursday after obtaining a license to practice the profession. She has had to close her shop 45 days ago due to some license-related issues.

Wafa shared her passion and enthusiasm to engage in a profession dominated by males. “Praise be to God, I had a great degree of confidence in myself and in everyone, and hence I will not give up, no matter how many hurdles I might encounter while pursuing in this profession,” she said.
