8. Abeer Sinder
This gorgeous Saudi makeup blogger is not only a beauty specialist, but also a trailblazer in her own way. Working on breaking racial boundaries, she advocates for inclusivity and works on being a role model for Arab women that look like her. Her videos range from social commentary to the latest in hype makeup products to buy, but our favorite part is her curly hair maintenance tips that follow a healthy regime of taking care of your bouncy mane without compromising its waviness.
This Saudi social media star expends comedy to shed a light on fundamental disputes in the society and the Arab region. For a daily dose of humor and awareness, Darine is your social media go-to. She has turned her platform into a movement while she conversing everything from Saudi mannerisms to relationship advice – meaning you’ll have a laugh but you’ll stay woke.
10. The Abduls
Had the honour last night of being @bicestervillage guest at the Arab women of the year awards and witnessing truly inspirational women getting the recognition they truly deserve for paving the way for the next generation. Thank you for being such great role models to look up to!
Bonus: here you’re getting not one but two social media personalities operating under one blog – and one family. Thana and Sakhaa Abdul are Saudi twin sisters living in London, and capturing every outfit one at a time. They are also founders of their own business, Coded Nation, a website that features curated Arab designers and collaborations. Looking for grunge and edgy? Go for Sakhaa. Looking for dashing and power-suiting, go for Thana.
