Mumbai: Pushing traditional beauty business practices aside and embracing innovation, invigoration and inspiration, Amyn Manji in 2009 set up NS Style Salonhttp://www.nssalons.com/ in Mumbai, which now has 12+ branches in Mumbai, Goa and Kochi.
From his early childhood days, Amyn showed the signs of entrepreneurship when he started helping his father in his business. In 1999, while completing his Bachelors in Commerce, he co-founded Spearhead Live http://spearheadlive.com/ along with his brothers, which offered cable internet services to households in Bandra. Amyn toiled to make his business prosper, but the journey was fraught with challenges considering that the cable TV industry was extremely unorganized at that time. Nonetheless, Amyn’s relentless efforts helped his company grow to become an ISP with Pan India presence and it operates till date. To overcome the obstacles, Amyn developed an ERP software at a time when no one knew what it meant until people realised that software makes it easy for business.He later completed his graduation along with a CCIE (Routing & Security) certification from C.I.S.C.O.
After trying his hands at all this, Amyn now wanted to do something different. That’s when he set up NS Style Salon. His entrepreneurial brains made sure the business kept increasing and he remained proactive in introducing innovations that the clients’ simply loved.He proved to be the pioneer by successfully launching Eyelash Extensions in 2012, Permanent Makeup in 2017 &India’s first Airport Salon in Mumbai in the year 2019. Amyn said, “I believe in doing things differently and am never afraidto try anything new. After the First Airport Salon of India we have plans to expand NS Salon acrossIndia and abroad diversifying into niche cosmetic products in the near future.As the NS Style Salon has grown from strength to strength, I am making sure that the brand and ethos of the salon remains intact.” Amyn has also marked his presence in the Fashion Industry as a Co-Founder of India Beach Fashion Week (IBFW).
Businesses have suffered a lot during lockdown &lots of salons have been closing down, but NS Style Salon seems to have a great future ahead due to its brand value and a great business model which is client centric.
