Take your beauty biz to a new high

Take your beauty biz to a new high

Salons in Southern part of India are synonymous with Naturals and now Naturals is synonymous with Kareena Kapoor. Actress Kareena Kapoor is now the brand ambassador of the leading beauty chain which has 350+ salons pan India presently.

Prospective franchisees have a golden opportunity as the brand plans to take the number to 650 by end of 2014. Veena Kumaravel, Founder, Naturals Salon gets candid with Beny Sachdeva and talks about industry trends and challenges.

Any new trend you witnessed so far in beauty & wellness sector? Where do you see industry's growth five years down the line?

As far as the skin treatments are concerned, we are witnessing a surge in preventive ageing services. People are more aware of products and services and are willing to go the extra mile to retain their youthful looks. Make up trends are now veering towards an overall natural look with dewy fresh skin. Colours for eyes and lips are mostly creamy pastel shades which complement many skin tones. In hair one can observe varying looks where there is something for everyone, be it a vintage 60's look, a minimalistic look with rigorously simple lines, a non-conformist look that shuns prescriptive cut and colour for the cool kids who don't want to fit in, or even smouldering new look for the sophisticated glamour girls

Women entrepreneurs face funding problems. What solution do you have for this?

Especially for women, Naturals has a tie up with Indian Overseas Bank. This is exclusively to promote women entrepreneurs. One challenge often faced in the setting up stage for women franchisees is procurement of funds.

Which is the biggest challenge in this industry?

I believe that retaining qualified and trained staff is the biggest challenge in the beauty industry, besides high rental costs and fast changing trends. Under technical training, Naturals' franchisees are updated on new-age trends of hair, skin, nail and usage of beauty products. Whereas under salon management, the company offers training on how to take care of a customer, managing the staff, inventory control, billing procedure, telephone handling, communication skills and other trainings to run the salon smoothly.
