About us Biography
I was born in Kabul, Afghanistan and grew up in India and Pakistan. My full attention growing up was on finishing University and working in the financial sector after graduation.
Aside from having a very clear goal what I wanted to do when I finished studying, I was also had a growing passion for traditional remedies, beauty tricks and tips passed on from one generation to the next.
To pursue my passion, during summer breaks from University I started working twice a week at a beauty salon to help a friend who owned the place. There I learned techniques of eyebrow deigning with a thread, facial hair removal and facials with all natural products which were known for centuries for their skin improvement properties.
It doesn’t take much time for a skill to become an obsession for me and I started practicing techniques on friends, family and even neighbours.
For the last decade or two, this has been only a passion. This year I decided to share this passion with a broader audience and that is when I decided to open Beauty Essence in a beautiful village of Laren.
