What’s your Salon Name & Location?
I am residing at Juhu and working independently as a beauty professional freelancer providing a vast range of beauty services at my home. My clients are happy with the excited and flawless look I create for them. With a couple of years’ experience I can say I have been successful in becoming an epitome of makeup artist with creativity and professionalism. Now, my clients stay waiting for my services and as time rolled, I hardly got time to open a separate salon. However, I have planned this year and is going to open a salon in 3 months.
I have completed my Bachelors in Commerce.
What is your background?
My father is into mobile business and my mom is a housewife.
What’s your job profile before entering the beauty industry?
I never worked with any other industry. After getting married, boredom embraced me. Though I wanted to do something but cannot continue as my kids were small. I have to take care of them as well as my hubby. I took admission in LTA School of Beauty for professional graduate course once my children were big enough to take care of themselves.
How you got interested in Beauty industry?
My interest and inspiration were in the family. My sister has her own salon named ‘Sapna’. She is my greatest motivation. She helped me in knowing the basics of beauty and influenced me to start my career in this industry.
What do you think is the future perspective of Beauty industry?
The future perspective of beauty industry is increasing every day. Beauty is the source of confidence for women. It’s the biggest opportunity for any girl. However, though it’s different in each home but I think a career in this industry can be easily continued even after getting married where your in-laws or family members would not have any issues with the kind of work.
What did you learn and how was your training experience?
The training experience at LTA School of Beauty has been extremely outstanding. With experienced trainers, I got to know the complete use of beauty equipment with hair, skin, and facial treatments. With programs like SGP (Salon Graduate Program) and CIDESCO, I have upgraded myself from a beautician to cosmetologist. 360 hours of long training enables you to learn the practical methodologies and increases your hygiene level.
How education has helped you and what’s your success story?
Beauty education has helped me immensely in my career. I have learned how to cut, dye, and style my hair as well as give manicures and pedicures. It has also trained me perfectly on skin treatments and makeup applications. I have learned how to use chemicals safely – identifying different hair, skin and nail art and came to know important facts on proper sanitation. I have developed persuasive skills and knew specific treatments that can make clients satisfied.
My family has always supported me. As my sister is already successful in this industry, I never faced any major issues rather got immense help. While serving as a beauty professional freelancer, I understood good opportunities never come without experience.
What has been the turning point in this journey of success?
Knowing more and more about the beauty industry has been the turning point of my success. Starting with strong motivation from my sister, SGP and CIDESCO courses from LTA School of Beauty and short-term courses on advanced Bridal hairstyle & Wedding makeup have made my journey rewarding.
What did you do after completing the course?
After completing beauty courses, I started working in sister’s salon and served clients at home.
Your vision and future plans?
My vision is providing the clients with highest quality treatments with the help of latest beauty technology. Once I begin with my salon I ensure a better quality of life for each customer. Along with the finest beauty products, special lighting, music, décor, and textiles will be used throughout my salon to enhance clients’ overall experience. In the future, I want to be successful at salon business and being known among the renowned salon owners in India.
Where do you see yourself 5 years down the line?
In the next 5 years, I want to make my salon a Brand name and be the topmost beauty professional.
