Madame Tussauds Dubai revealed that wax figures of Huda Kattan (CEO, Founder & Chairwoman of Huda Beauty) and Mona Kattan (Co-Founder & Global President of Huda Beauty, KAYALI & HB Investments) are the latest celebrities to join a growing pool of hand-picked, exclusive-to-the-region Middle Eastern stars at the world-renowned attraction on Bluewaters.

Madame Tussauds Dubai boasts an impressive array of wax figures. For many visitors it’s the chance to encounter popular figures from the Middle East that is the major draw.

The two beauty icons and their respective styling teams have played a pivotal role in the creation of their waxworks; Huda’s glamorous make-up has been recreated with precision by artists who worked closely with the beauty icon, selecting products which were then recreated and used as colour references.

Her doppelganger figure wears a dazzling floor length, one-of-a-kind gown by haute couture designer Yousef Al Jasmi. Huda’s personal hair stylist ensured her signature hairstyle was perfectly imitated, while elegant, crystal-embellished René Caovilla wrapround sandals complete the look.

Mona offered insights on how to achieve the ideal volume and fullness to her cascading locks and donating the very contact lenses that she wore for her sittings, as well as a pair of 12cm high black strappy heels.

Her wax figure is dressed in a striking black jumpsuit by British-Lebanese designer Nadine Merabi and positioned holding a bottle of fragrance from her range.

The side-by-side reveal took place at Caesars Palace Dubai, located near the attraction on Bluewaters.
