I’m beautiful because I think I am

Love begins with you This is the philosophy of Enrich Salons. And this is what differentiates Enrich from other salons. Enrich does not simply work from the outside, but tries to simply enhance the beauty that lies within each person. It also recognises beauty as being the manifestation of love. Not only in the eyes of the beholder but love for yourself for being yourself. Here is one of the many examples of how different people spread love differently and have their own brand of inner beauty.   The power of belief It is common knowledge, that if you believe it, you can do it. It is the mantra that is used, and now overused, to motivate people in every field of work or activities. But what about being beautiful? Did you know that the same theory applies here too? Yes. You can be beautiful if you believe you are beautiful. This is because no amount of powder and make up can hide lack of self confidence in your own self. You can be ‘correctly’ skinny and get into tight jeans and look awkward. Again, you can be plump and flaunt a pair of tight jeans with elan. It is about how you carry off your look or clothes. And that in turn depends on yourself thinking and believing that you are beautiful.   It is NOT  human nature to want what you don’t have No. It is not. But, more often than not, society and a faulty education system that teaches but does not educate, unknowingly steer us into wanting what we don’t have. Those who can overcome that, and realize for themselves that innate human nature is not about that, find it easier to believe in themselves instead of wanting something else, something more. When it comes to being beautiful, the one person who can decide how much of ‘beautiful enough’ is enough, is you. Once you come to terms with that, your beauty WILL show.   So it all adds up to being and accepting who you are Every one has been subjected to those passing comments and judgements that has disoriented them, if lucky for a second, and if unlucky, for life. The trick is to stop heeding those ghost voices and listening to the ones inside you instead. You have what Creation gave you. It is up to you to make the best of that and flaunt it. Another common mistake one makes is equating beauty with social approval. If you believe you are beautiful enough, then you will have the power to change the way the world around you defines beauty.

Everyone is beautiful in their own way

Love begins with you This is the philosophy of Enrich Salons. And this is what differentiates Enrich from other salons. Enrich does not simply work from the outside, but tries to simply enhance the beauty that lies within each person. It also recognises beauty as being the manifestation of love. Not only in the eyes of the beholder but love for yourself for being yourself. Here is one of the many examples of how different people spread love differently and have their own brand of inner beauty.     Beauty lies not only in the eyes of the beholder Beauty lies in every one. Each and every single one of us. In different avatars. There is no single definition of beauty. It is something that pleases another or oneself, but in a positive way. And each of one have at least one such quality in us, which makes us beautiful for that particular reason. Insecurity about being beautiful is the only ugly thing. Not you. You are beautiful. But I am not beautiful like you. I am beautiful like me. Being your own kind of beautiful, or in other words, being yourself, is the best it can get. It is only up to one to find that within oneself and cultivate it. And the moment you accept that, you become beautiful. Sadly, some mistakes society has taught us to make When it comes to beauty, we immediately begin to compare. That is a very un-beautiful thing to do. It takes away from the essence of beauty. The one that lies within. Her hair is more beautiful than man. Her baby is more beautiful than mine. My figure is more beautiful than hers. Her voice is sweeter than mine. That is how we tend to think and compare even without knowing it. That is wrong. Beauty comes in different forms. Just like straight hair or curly hair. Beauty cannot be measured in levels. You are your kind of you. I am my kind of me. We also tend to categorise beauty. I would call that being downright racist, that too in no uncertain terms. And we are all guilty of it at some point of our lives. We tend to be happier is the baby is fair skinned. We look for the tallest groom for the child instead of the kindest. So while beauty is there in everyone, it is up to us to find and value it.   The classic case of Betty versus Veronica Who has not read Archies comics and who has not laughed at the antics of Jughead, and who is not familiar with Betty and...

Beauty is being the best version of you, inside out

Beauty is being the best version of you, inside out

Love begins with you This is the philosophy of Enrich Salons. And this is what differentiates Enrich from other salons. Enrich does not simply work from the outside, but tries to simply enhance the beauty that lies within each person. It also recognises beauty as being the manifestation of love. Not only in the eyes of the beholder but love for yourself for being yourself. Here is one of the many examples of how different people spread love differently and have their own brand of inner beauty.   Outer manifestations of inner beauty When a person is beautiful on the outside, we ask for beauty tips. But when she is beautiful on the inside too, we seek inspiration. Some things a woman who is beautiful inside does without knowing it are as follows. She exudes confidence no matter what she is looking like. She smiles more often than not. She carries her age gracefully. She does not get into competition mode when it comes to beauty, but rejoices in being herself. She sets examples people want to follow. She shares her inner beauty generously with others who are ready to imbibe it.   Deepika Padukone and how she lives what she preaches Deepika Padukone is one of the most successful, glamorous and beautiful celebrities we can think of. And a firm believer and practicer of “Beauty is being the best version of you, inside out”. What makes her beautiful on the inside too? Apart from all the above traits, she has an opinion or two on feminism and depression, along with the action necessary to back her up. In her endeavour to make this world more accepting of the woman and for the sufferers of depression, she has done and is continuing to do more than her two bits. Deepika Padukone and feminism A person who is beautiful on the inside, has a great understanding and empathy of and for her kind. She is a celebrity, a star, a part of the crem de la crem of society, but that has never made her forget that she is a woman first. Which means she knows the social barriers the woman of today faces in her very existence and identity, and the importance of woman empowerment necessary to break these barriers. She has always been very vocal about her stance on the issue and has also announced it loud and clear through Vogue’s Empower Women campaign.   Her stance on feminism Have faith in yourself and never underestimate your strength or your capabilities of being a multi tasker. Do not wait for a festival celebrating womanhood in order to celebrate...

And it is still growing. It is more of an experience than a service provider and has taken the Beauty & Wellness business to whole new heights.

It has 2,60,000 loyal customers, and counting.   So what keeps these beautiful people going back there? An interesting insight into customer psychology lists a number of things that are as important to the customer as the final product or service they seek to buy. Here are a few, and how Enrich Salons match up to each.   Customer service Great customer service that is personalised to boot is a winner. Having people at the desk who have people skills matter. Good customer service is about not only assisting customers in a friendly manner, but efficiently too. The aim is customer satisfaction and the skills necessary for doing this job right are being able to handle issues in an empathetic manner and seeing every issue resolved to its end. It is what sets one company apart from another offering the same goods or services for sale. Enrich Salons, from its inception, has been single mindedly customer oriented. They hire people who have good people skills, and then train them to better these skills further. So when the customer walks in, he or she feels like the individual that he or she is instead of just another customer waiting in a line, and that he or she will be heard and taken care of personally.   Sensory experience People want to feel good at all times, even when they shop. This greatly influences their buying behaviour and the amount of time they spend doing so. Designing the outlet not only for shopping convenience but also for a sensory experience helps. When a customer walks into an Enrich Salon in order to look beautiful, he or she is also made to feel beautiful at the same time. The superbly designed interiors, the relaxing atmosphere, the aromatic air that further relaxes the senses, the gentle touch of the expert technician, the soft music that lulls you to a beautiful stupor while the technician works on the customer makes him or her want to spend some...
