A BEAUTICIAN who dubbed herself 'Glasgow's worst hair washer' now has luxury clinics across the world which boast famous clients.
Deborah Alessi grew up in the Scottish city and began her hairdressing career at the Rainbow Rooms.
Now the entrepreneur has salons in Dubai, Beverly Hills and the Maldives.
Deborah was born in Glenmavis outside of Airdrie, Lanarkshire, before moving to the east end of Glasgow.
The entrepreneur, who studied business management at Glasgow University, worked for airlines for several years before getting a job on the Bahrain Royal Family's private aircrafts.
But her interests soon turned towards the beauty industry.
She told the Glasgow Times "I eventually got married and spent many years helping my now ex-husband expand his plastic surgery practice.
"I was always researching and learning the newest trends in health and beauty… and I have always loved trying new products to help keep my skin healthy and glowing."
After being introduced to vitamin injections, Deborah decided to launch her own brand.
She started Beverly Hills Wellness and Aesthetics Clinic in LA which expanded out to the Maldives, India and Dubai.

And now the beautician is based in Palm Jumeirah's Five Palm Hotel in Dubai having started in Caesar's Palace.
But the owner remains tight lipped on her famous clients telling the Glasgow Times: "I can't give you any names, but we have movie stars, famous influencers, royals from around the globe.
"And plenty of locals and tourists too.
"Anyone who is wanting to look and feel better about themselves really."
Deborah hopes to continue her success in the UK having opened her first clinic in London with plans for a Glasgow base too.
And as a survivor of domestic abuse, Deborah also has her own charity Face Forward which provides free reconstruction surgery for all victims of domestic abuse and emotional support.
She said: "It started as just a small local organisation, has grown into a now internationally recognised charity, and we've helped survivors from 15 different countries around the world.
"It is my proudest achievement."
