Following the birth of her daughter, Haffsah decided to start her own business and to name it after her first born, Lajeen; “Lajeen Artistry”. She initially started doing hair and makeup for her friends and family, and subsequently got approached by people to do it for them. That’s when Haffsah decided to get into the game!
