Hair - - Editor's Letter -

The first Gee­tan­jali sa­lon was opened in Green Park Mar­ket, South Delhi, by Prem Is­rani and Neetu Is­rani with the aim of of­fer­ing the best ser­vices not only in hair, skin and beauty but also in bridal makeup and pro­fes­sional makeovers. There are more than 15 sa­lons at prime lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing one at the Amer­i­can Em­bassy, and the sa­lon has grown from a 10-artiste team to 500 pro­fes­sion­als Su­mit Is­rani joined Gee­tan­jali Sa­lon in the year 1998 af­ter re­turn­ing from Lon­don where he stud­ied in var­i­ous prom­i­nent in­sti­tutes and worked with the best pro­fes­sion­als in the world of hair and beauty. Su­mit Is­rani em­bed­ded him­self with the be­lief that “hair cut­ting is a vis­ual art; it should man­i­fest one’s per­son­al­ity and there­fore must be in­di­vid­u­alised”. Af­ter years of train­ing and ac­cu­mu­lat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence from the best in his pro­fes­sion (Vi­dal Sas­soon, Guy Kre­mer, Jo Hans­ford, Jac­ques Des­sange to name a few), to­day Su­mit is un­doubt­edly one of the most sought af­ter hair stylists with the finest panache for hair colour­ing. He is a per­sonal favourite of many stars from the Bol­ly­wood and fashion fra­ter­nity such as Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Lisa Hay­don and many em­i­nent per­son­al­i­ties in­clud­ing the glo­ri­ous and gor­geous Hil­lary Clin­ton and Michelle Obama.

Gee­tan­jali Sa­lon part­nered with PVR Direc­tor’s Cut to show­case de­signer Khushali Ku­mar’s col­lec­tion‘Reve’. The look of the mod­els was de­signed to be Vic­to­rian from the 1920s era. The team from Gee­tan­jali Sa­lon cre­ated high-twisted French buns com­ple­mented with ex­tended winged eyes and ox-blood lips to add a touch of grandeur to the show.
