Email this article

A person from the recruitment industry informed about the the demand for cosmetologists and sewers in Middle East. Former president of the Philippine Association of Service Exporters, Inc, (PASEI), Lito Soriano, said that an average of 10,000 hair dressers, cosmetologists and sewers will be needed in Middle East countries in the next two years.

Soriano said, “Middle East countries will need at least 10,000 hair dressers, cosmetologists and sewers in the next two years.”

According to Soriano, the goal of Middle East counties is to be the world’s trading center. The various construction and infrastructure projects (e.g. hotels, restaurants and spas) are efforts to realized their aim.

Unfortunately, gay beauticians have small chance to be hired due to the issue of gender sensitivity. Soriano explained, “May mga qualified (Pinoy beauticians) kaya lang ibang gender. Sa Middle East countries may cultural barrier sila doon.” Gay beauticians can still apply but their women counterparts are preferred.

Monthly salary of OFWs in the hair and fashion industry in the Middle East received USD 500 up to USD 1,000, plus tip from generous customers.
