Adam Al-Kisawni was born in Amman, Jordan where he began styling hair. He was influenced and mentored by some well known names in the hair and fashion industry but quickly ventured on his own, building a rather large client base. As the years went on, Adam's love for styling grew into a passion that he pursued more and more. At the age of 16, Adam had his first hair show and it only confirmed what everyone already knew... Adam's work was incredible. Adam became a Master Stylist in 2007 and moved to the U.S. in 2008. Although he was leaving behind a large client base, with his unique style and attention to detail, it wasn't long until he built a following that surpassed the previous. The ©Hair By Adam team is located in San Antonio & Bergheim/Boerne TX but they travel all throughout the U.S. and abroad upon request. With the client base that Adam and his team has built and the influences these clients have among the fashion and film industry, very shortly ©Hair By Adam will be a common household name. Adam owns two locations North Star Mall San Pedro Ave, Hair By ADAM and Bergheim,TX. Come see him at Diamond Spa and experience Luxurious Hair.
