The seventeen-year-old has made quite a splash, particularly with her amazingly full hair. Vogue was so obsessed that they wrote an article about it, which we can’t even hold against them. Her dark-brown locks are almost always in a natural, permanent blow-out, which further add to her already glowing features. Being of Egyptian and Moroccan heritage has her in the right genetics for awesome, statement making hair, but the she still makes an effort to treat her hair with care. In her interview with American Vogue, she revealed argon oil and Aunt Jackie’s Curl La La Defining Curl Custard as a few of her best kept hair health secrets. Hammam is signed with Code Model Management in her Netherland hometown, Amsterdam, and also represented by Viva Models in Paris and London.
