Beautician queen

A beautician from Bangalore has won a prestigious award.

THE PEOPLE at Kanya Beauty Salon, Indira Nagar, have reason to feel great. Not only is it one of the leading salons in the City, but one of its beauticians, Barabara Poe, is the only Bangalorean to win an award at the All India Beauty Specialists and Hairdressers Association (AIBHA) contest, held in Chennai recently. The AIBHA event is a prestigious national-level competition for hairdressers and beauticians from all over India.

This year, the AIBHA awards had six categories - ladies' hair cut, gents' hair cut, evening hair style, nail art, bridal make-up, and fantasy round. Ms. Poe took part in three categories and won an award in the bridal make-up category. Says an excited Ms. Poe: "Kanya Beauty Salon chain bagged 12 of the 18 awards in the six categories." She adds that the award really belongs to Latha Mohan, proprietor of the Kanya chain of salons, who groomed her and her colleagues.

Ms. Poe, who has been in the beauty industry for the last 25 years, was associated with Kanya earlier. Then she branched out and worked with other reputed beauty salons across Asia, and returned to Kanya, Bangalore.

Kanya was started by Latha C. Mohan and Madhu Mohan in 1980, at Chennai. Today, it has eight branches. The emphasis at Kanya is on keeping abreast of the latest trends in the hair and beauty industry. International beauty experts impart in-house training to the staff on a regular basis.

These training sessions have helped, as the success of Ms. Poe illustrates.
