Roj is one of Craigmillar’s newest hair and beauty salon and it opened on 1st March on the high street.
Ali Moustafa and Masoud Asadi are the owners. They struggled to come up with a name for the business and decided on Roj because it sounded like rose and means day or sun in their Kurdish language.
Mr Moustafa also runs Afrin barbers at 46 Niddrie Mains Road. He says: “I always wanted to open a separate women’s salon because men use barbers and women use salons. Women and men are welcome at Afrin’s, but I opened the salon because women were asking for one.”
The salon has:
- A hair dressing area
- A separate room for Halal hair cuts
- A massage room
The salon offers
- Eyebrow and eye lash tinting
- Threading and eyebrow waxing
- Bikini waxing
- Bridal hair and make-up
Mrs Moustafa says: “We hope to have an ear-piercing service up and running soon.”
Mr Moustafa feels proud the salon is now open. He says: “We hope people will come and we promise the best service for our customers.”
