Mia Aflalo of Israel is barely five years old and already has 78,000 Instagram followers – up from 48,000 on August 29, when the UK Daily Mail reprinted modeling photos of the preschooler with fabulous tresses and gorgeous green eyes.
Mia’s fame comes by way of Tel Aviv celebrity hairstylist Sagi Dahary. He’s posted pics of her magnificent dos alongside those of more famous clients, such as singers Ninet Tayeb and Sarit Hadad. Dahary even styled Gal Gadot’s hair for her comic encounter with Conan O’Brien on his visit to Israel last year.
Dahary takes obvious pride and joy in his work with Mia. He has commented that his pint-sized client is not only beautiful but also patient and good-natured during their hairstyling sessions.
Mia’s modeling photos are now going viral across the world, with some commenters oohing and aahing over her extraordinary looks and others condemning the pictures as exploitative and liable to attract the wrong sort of attention.
Another of Dahary’s child clients is professional model Anastasya Averbukh, nearly eight years old, who has even more Instagram followers than does Mia Aflalo.
