Sophiya Haque ~ 1971 ~2013

For those of you who don’t know her, Sophiya was a talented actress, singer, dancer and presenter, as well as  a wonderful funny gorgeous human being.  I had the pleasure of meeting and  working with Sophiya during her MTV Asia/Channel V stint as a VJ in Hong Kong in the 90’s.

Since her VJ days Sophiya went on to star in many of London’s West End Musicals. ‘Bombay Dreams’ (by Andrew Lloyd Webber) was the musical afew of us old friends were able to last see her star in.. Fantastic and Brilliant Show. She also had a role in ‘The Wanted’ with Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy to name afew.

For more details on her story …. Sophiya Haque

Sophiya passed away last night to the shock of many friends and family around the world. At 41, she was way too young with way too much to offer still. With only several weeks notice she was diagnosed with cancer and died suddenly but peacefully in her sleep.

Sophiya was fun, she was adventurous with her hair and she allowed me to create and try allsorts of styles. If it didn’t work, we would try something different but we worked together for many years and she trusted that I would always make her look good. As my tribute to her I am showing you my favorite styles that I created on her back in the day.

You will me missed by many… Heaven will be welcoming one hell of a sassy chick! Love to you beautiful Sophiya, we’ll never forget you <3
