The beauty and wellness industry is booming in India, thanks to the growing desire among both men and women to look stylish and feel good. Indeed, a KPMG report projected that the size of India’s beauty and wellness market would nearly double to Rs 80,370 crore by 2017/18 from Rs 41,224 crore in 2012/13. Of this, industry experts say makeup alone would account for over 40% of the market size, relying heavily on the ‘big fat’ bridal makeup.
Making a mark for itself, Monsoon Salon & Spa started organised salon chains to make this industry affordable for everyone and relieve it of the ‘only for the rich’ tag. Currently operating nine company-owned-company-operated model of salon & spa chain business across Delhi-NCR, the India’s most awarded salon’s USP is its unique way of focusing in each of the five verticals – hair, beauty, makeup, nail and spa.
For hair, they have famous Aussie hairstylist Rod Anker, who is also the Creative Director of the salon chain. Anker to his credit has various awards like Vogue Colourist of the year 2012, Elle Beauty Awards Jury 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014, to name a few.
Now they have collaborated with Vidya Tikari, one of the most-sought-after makeup artists in India. Known for her professionalism and versatility, Vidya is a deft in managing fashion week madness to wedding season rush. She has also created stunning and exquisite looks for Bollywood celebrities like Sushmita Sen, Aishwarya Rai, Deepika Padukone, etc. for over two decades.
