Amena Khan is a British model, fashion designer, and social media influencer.
She is best known for founding the fashion company “Pearl Daisy,” designing head scarfs, and becoming the first hijab model in a L’Oreal hair-care campaign.
She was the first woman wearing a hijab to be part of a mainstream advert for hair care.
She resigned following the criticism of her now deleted tweets criticising Israel in 2014.
She said: I deeply regret the content of the tweets I made in 2014, and sincerely apologize for the upset and hurt that they have caused. Championing diversity is one of my passions, I don’t discriminate against anyone. I have chosen to delete them as they do not represent the message of harmony that I stand for.
She also co-founded “Ardere Cosmetics” a makeup line meant for darker skinned woman and has her own false lash line called “Lashionery.”
In 2018, she also launched a clothing line for her fashion boutique “Pearl Daisy”.
