Knowledge is the secret of success in beauty therapy
Ms. Sudha Rana is the owner of Visha Beauty Clinic, Mumbai and she shares her experience of how she started with a small beauty parlour and later on grew it to an advanced beauty clinic by acquiring knowledge and beauty therapy education.
Sudha comes from a small Town named Kangrain Himachal Pradesh where she completed her education and shifted to Mumbai after her marriage. In a fast city like Mumbai, her husband wanted Sudha to pursue something which would make her independent & she could manage her house as well. Sudha was suggested an option in Beauty which quickly registered with her that yes- she will have flexible options and it is a recession proof industry. Sudha went on to learn different short & long term course with different people to get different perceptions in this industry. She started replicating things which she learnt and started her own parlor in 2001.
Sudha says she was happy doing what she had learnt BUT challenge set in when clients started asking too many questions which she was not able to handle. This set in because she was following what she learnt and was not able to create services as per client requirement. This made Sudha restless and the hungry for knowledge which would satisfy her clients. She kept enquiring with different people when finally in one trade magazine she got the answer that CIDESCO qualification which is regarded as the world’s highest qualification has sound scientific knowledge for all skin & body treatments & therapies. CIDESCO & CIDESCO from LTA School of Beauty changed her life completely. She further pursued CITY & Guilds Diploma in Hair Dressing & CIBTAC Diploma from UK in Aesthetics.
Sudha proudly wants to share that sound skin & hair knowledge is helping her a lot in her professional life where decision making on which product to buy, how the ingredients will help on which skin type has become very easy. She cannot be fooled by any product or machine vendor till the time she is not fully convinced.
Like many salons and parlors, Sudha also takes classes and teaches students but Sudha adds that training @ LTA helped her plan the right curriculum for her students. She teaches at different levels, uses right technical words & is happy to give the students the right knowledge with the skills.
Sudha has seen loads of changes in her social & family life after successfully transforming Visha Beauty Parlor to VISHA Beauty Clinic. Her relatives set an example to their children to be like Sudha.
Sudha has become the Idol for her family & wants to pass on one message to the industry that “Technology & products keep changing and we beauty professionals get carried away to be updated & land up spending more on these. I would recommend SPEND on Education & be a qualified Beauty professional. CIDESCO gave me the confidence to choose and make a right decision and my clients, my students my business has grown remarkably. They value my knowledge & are satisfied which is what is my success.”
