A cosmetologist by profession and an educationist by choice. 568

There are countless talented cosmetologists, but a very few also possess the entrepreneurial skills required to take their talent to the next level. Bhavna is surely proved she’s one of the select few.

An ordinary woman in her early 40s, daughter of an army hero from a small town, proudly call herself as an educationist who strongly believes that a knowledge is useful only if it gives growth or happiness or money ; better, all three.

Bhavna has a long history in the industry having worked as a core member of senior management in organisations like Loreal India, Lakme Lever, Landmark Dubai, NDTV worldwide, Zee TV. She was the National training Head for Lakme Salons, and L&D head, North for Loreal India. All the while, her entrepreneurial spirit was itching to break out. So, with a mix of drive, determination, and a little bit of chutzpah, launched her salon brand, Hair & Other stuff – The Salon in Juhu, Mumbai in 2014. The brand picked up good and was loved by the clientèle, that included celebrities from Bollywood.

Exhaustively trained by Loreal in makeup, hair & skin science, I always had a vision of educating others on the same. The idea was to provide expertise in hair and skin, along with a strong focus on educating the clients on their own hair and skin concerns and solutions.

– says Bhavna Singh.

As one of the highly qualified beauty practitioners, Bhavna loves to learn and ensure her skills are kept updated – meaning every customer benefits from her advanced knowledge and the very latest creative techniques and she doesn’t mind sharing that knowledge.

Hair & Other stuff – The Salon is now operational in Gurgaon on the Golf course road. Her expertise is now more tilted towards hair, and there’s a lot of cool hair stuff happening on her floor. From facials to pedicures & manicures, from nail services to makeup, the vision is to have Hair & Other stuff, The Salon as a customer-centric salon in all honesty.

When she is not in her dream place, you can find her at her home busy in her own stuff with her two young and handsome boys aged 21 and 16. Sounds unbelievable?

Yes, you read it right. She doesn’t look like one. Does she?

Believing in the philosophy – If you’re an entrepreneur, find something that you really love and are passionate about, and use yourself. It’s so easy to sell that, Bhavna, a cosmetologist by profession and an educationist by choice is exploiting all her skills to help people look and feel special.

Brides to be, remember the two A’s ! 183

While a lehenga with a humungous flare that is larger than the mandap itself seems to be every Indian Brides dream, but what most brides forget is that it’s essential to still stick to an outfit that is close to one’s personality. Ask me why?

Coz when you wear an outfit that isn’t in sync with your personality, there’s going to be a conflict between your attitude and the attire.

Each bridal outfit delivers a certain vibe and it should always be styled to suit that vibe. Wearing it in a manner that is not in accordance with it’s style will only take away it’s grace.

When I got married, me and my cousins planned a fun & masti wedding coz that’s how I am in real life too. But like every other Punjabi girl, I had always imagined myself as a royal and graceful princess bride and that’s exactly the look I went for. Elegant and classy. But as planned, there I was, dancing, laughing, screaming, hooting and actually being nothing close to graceful. Seriously, my behaviour was far from it.

– says Nehal, a teacher and a Delhite who got married last winter.

See, she has a point!

In my view, your lehenga can even lose all the charm because of the way you style it. Imagine a bride in Manish Malhotra’s super funky bridal lehenga who opts for a traditional look. Don’t you think it will take away all the quirkiness of the attire? Of course, it will.

You just can’t afford a mismatch in your makeup and jewellery with your outfit.

Girls, your bridal outfit is really an extension of your personality. Wearing an outfit that’s in sync with the kind of bride you want to be, really helps! If you do want to be a shy, graceful bride – go for a traditional and ethnic bridal outfit OR if you want to be a carefree, fun bride, choose an outfit that’s fluid, vibrant and uncomplicated.

After all, it will highlight your personality and you want to keep it real. Don’t you?
