About...


Deborah Rodriguez is a hairdresser, motivational speaker and author of the bestselling memoir THE KABUL BEAUTY SCHOOL: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil, a book that grew out of the five years teaching and later directing the Kabul Beauty School, the first modern beauty academy and training salon in Afghanistan.

Rodriguez also owned the Kabul Coffee House which inspired her to write her first novel, THE LITTLE COFFEE SHOP OF KABUL, which went on to become an international bestseller. She is the founder of Oasis Rescue, a nonprofit organization that provides help to women in troubled, post conflict, and economically depressed areas, providing supplies and skills to women who aspire to become more financially independent through hairdressing.

She currently owns and operates a beauty salon and spa in Mexico and has completed a new memoir, MARGARITA WEDNESDAYS: Making a New Life by the Mexican Sea, an intimate account of Rodriquez’s journey to remake her life after being forced to leave Afghanistan...
