Dubai Bling: Who Are Mona Kattan Parents?
Dubai Bling’s Mona Kattan is the daughter of Ibrahim Al Kattan and Susu Al Qazzaz. Her parents independently moved to America. Although they are rich now, the family didn’t grow up very wealthy. Her sister Huda shared, “We didn’t really have a lot of money. We lived in apartments—I can’t even remember all of them—and then we moved into a house and that was the most exciting thing, ever.”
Mona Kattan is 38 years old in 2023. With an estimated net worth above $150 million, Mona has been an Advisory Board Member at The Retail Summit since August 2023. She is also working at Heroine Sport as a Board Member and Partner, as a Creative Council Board Member at Waldencast, and founder of Kayali Fragrances.
Mona previously worked at Johnson & Johnson | Consumer Division as a Financial Accountant, DBS Bank – Development Bank of Singapore as a Financial Analyst, Corporate and Investment Banking, and MasterMind PR & Communications as Managing Partner | PR Division.
Along with her sisters Huda and Alya Kattan, Mona Kattan co-founded Huda Beauty, where she currently serves as Global President. The inspiration for Huda Beauty’s founding, Mona recognized an opportunity when her sister Huda, a cosmetic artist, began creating her fake lashes and pushed her to start a line of her own.
Together, they debuted a false eyelash collection at Sephora in 2013, and the first run of the collection sold out almost instantly. With a range of innovative products that range from body foundation to lip contouring pencils, melted eyeshadow to 3D highlighters, they have grown the business to a $1 billion valuation today. These products are sold globally at Sephora, Harrod’s, Net-a-Porter, and other top retailers.
Mona is currently married to her husband Hassan Elamin. They exchanged wedding vows on 22 February 2022. January 2021 marked the beginning of the couple’s whirlwind relationship, and the rest is history, as you may know.
Mona was previously engaged to Dominic Nowell Barnes. She ended her engagement with Dominic and deleted any trace of him from her Instagram account, even though she had announced her engagement to him earlier this year. The Huda Beauty Global President, who met her former partner on Tinder, had previously disclosed that she didn’t realize she didn’t want to be single anymore until she saw the first season of Huda Boss.
Dominic is the creator and CEO of The Giving Movement, a streetwear company based in Dubai. The brand has integrated philanthropy into its basic values, contributing $4 from each item sold to organizations that help children from disadvantaged backgrounds. By early 2023, the label had generated more than $4 million for Dubai Cares, a childhood education organization, and Harmony House, a non-profit located in Delhi, India.
