Team Lotus


Rana Asfour
Born and raised in Amman, Jordan, Rana Asfour is currently a platinum hair designer as well as marketing director at Salon Lotus.  Rana started in this industry in 1998 at the young age of 19, and many years later says, “I still have all the passion and excitement I started with. When I was a kid I gave all my Barbie dolls  haircuts and my poor little sister had to be the guinea pig as well. I always knew I was destined to do hair.”
Rana’s work as a hair designer goes far beyond just a haircut. She combines her extensive color training, her amazing hair cutting skills, and her eye for sculpting to give each client the total look they want and deserve.  Blessed with curly hair herself, Rana  is excellent at cutting and styling curly hair.  She says that “using the right product to give your curls great shape without frizz is almost as important as the perfect cut”.
Rana believes continuing education is essential in any successful career, and has definitely made it a part of hers. She has traveled the United States going to many hair shows, and participates in regular in-salon coloring and hands-on cutting classes. She has attended the Goldwell color academy in Baltimore, Maryland, as well as business seminars in New Orleans, Louisiana, combined with countless Aveda, Brocato, and  S Factor classes, making her an expert in her field. As one of the senior educators in the Salon Lotus apprentice program, Rana uses her broad knowledge for hair to help guide young designers into successful careers of their own. Lee Ann Herbert, co-owner of Salon Lotus said of Rana “ I was amazed when I heard Rana answer a clients question of how she knew what to cut?” Rana replied, ”It is quite simple, you just remove what does not belong outside of the shape you want.” This was an aha moment for me and the client both, reinforcing the fact that she IS a true artist!” With the natural talent, passion , and education it’s no wonder Rana is a driving force of our team. Team members new and old are always striving to keep up with her forward approach to design and success. Rana credits her success to giving every person who sits in her chair 110% of herself and it shows.  When it comes to hair Rana says “ this is not just my job…this IS what I do!”.
