Meet the Glam Houston Sisters Behind Jawda Jawda

Mimi Faucett Trahan | March 30, 2019 | Features

As the glam sister team behind design firm Jawda and Jawda, Sarah and Saba Jawda don’t just follow trends, they set them.

“We are pretty simple in our [beauty] routines, but do rely heavily on skincare and take what our dermatologist suggests seriously,” says Sarah Jawda (far right), one half of the duo behind multihyphenate design firm Jawda and Jawda. Over the past 10 years, Sarah and her sister, Saba, have cemented themselves as national design leaders, garnering clients like Landy’s, IHG and Randall Davis. They do it all (residential, office, retail, graphics, styling). And along the way, a killer personal style and what seems like a flawless look have made each of them fashion and beauty icons. Here, the Jawdas spill their secrets.

“Sergio at Ceron does my haircut and color. He is the best.”

“On my everyday face, I use Dior’s Diorshow mascara, Signature De Chanel eyeliner pen, Laura Mercier primer, Giorgio Armani foundation, Chanel lipstick and By Terry blush. I have two go-to moisturizers: Valmont moisturizing serumulsion and Kiehl’s Ultra facial moisturizer with SPF 30.” All at Saks Fifth Avenue, in the Galleria

“My favorite sweat session is running in Memorial Park. I love working out outdoors.”

“This jumpsuit is by Sandra Weil from Cooperativa Shop, the brooches are Olga Piedrahita and the shoes are Christian Louboutin.” Jumpsuit by Sandra Weil and brooches by Olga Piedrahita; both at Cooperativa Shop, cooperativashop.‌com; So Kate 120 patent leather nude pumps by Christian Louboutin, at Saks Fifth Avenue, in the Galleria.
