We take immense pride in our 27 year dedication towards our business. I have been trained under L’Oréal Professional, Toni and Guy techniques, Jawed Habib, Wella and Indola for hair artistry and hair chemistry, as well as Make Up For Ever amongst other top schools in the world for make up. Bringing in a transformation to young brides is something I have been doing since 2007. We ensure nothing but the best”.

“Finally, what matters is your experience with us, and we guarantee you the best,” says Sana Poonawala. Sana, who has been trained under Toni and Guy, London, L’Oréal Professional, Schwarzkopf, Wella and Keune, is a hair and make up artist now practicing in Bangalore.
