When it comes to beauty products, what is the ‘habit’?
The Habit Beauty Salon in Hyderabad’s capital city has become a destination for beauty enthusiasts from all over India who have ventured out to try out new hair extensions and hair salons in India.
The salon opened on May 23 and was packed with visitors from across the country.
“I have been coming here for the past two years,” said Roshan, a 20-year-old student from Delhi who came here for a haircut.
The salon also features a variety of hair products including hair dye, hair clips, hairspray, facial hair extensions, hair removers, and hair extensions for the eyebrows.
There is a lot of variety in the salon’s collection.
“We have the best haircuts, face masks, face products, and body scrubs,” said Harish, a 26-year old student from Mumbai.
The beauty salon has a wide range of products ranging from face masks and eye cream to body scrabs, eyebrow creams, and nail polish.
The hair salon’s owner, Karan, said that customers can choose from many hair products.
“A hair salon is like a salon in itself,” he said.
“They have a lot to offer.”
The salon is part of a trend in India where some beauty shops are offering a range of hair services from natural hair products to hair gel.
“In the past five years, the salon has become more popular,” said Manoj, an employee at the salon.
“The salon was always empty and there was no one coming here.
Now, there are a lot more customers.”
The popularity of hair saloons in India is increasing rapidly, said Ravi, an assistant professor at the Department of Anthropology, Jawaharlal Nehru University.
“There are a number of hair salon owners here in Hyderabadi,” he added.
“Hair salons are becoming a more and more popular and more and less expensive part of the business.”
A lot of beauty shops in Hyderabal are owned by women who earn a living from their salon.
The majority of the women earn less than Rs 5,000 (about Rs 40,000 for a family of four) from their businesses.
The hair salon owner said that most of the customers come to the salon for a quick cut.
“It’s a great way to relax after working,” he explained.
“After the haircut, we wash their hair and get them ready for the day.
They are not going to leave without the hair extensions.”
The beauty salon owner also shared that hair extensions are one of the best hair products available in Hyderabladesh.
“All the salon owners are using them.
They have a great selection,” he admitted.
