After completing my studies he went to Mumbai for work, unluckily he couldn't find a good job so he started sitting at my uncle's Salon in Mumbai. He got a job as a computer programmer but at free time he use to see my uncle working on the hair. After 2 year or so he hired a cyber café on contract basis so couldn't concentrate on hair styling so an Idea Struck into his mind, and he started learning about hair on net.
He surfed almost each and every site on hair, hair dressing, coloring, Styling etc and use to read interviews of top hair stylists of the world. He use to sit on net for hours and use to learn different tips and techniques and use to practice on my Cyber café's client . He says

"It just my passion, my hard work, my scissors, my god who have helped me in mastering the art of hair dressing practically as well as theoretically. Although no one can be a 100% perfect hair stylist because good hairstylist learns something with every new client"
"hair styling is an art and a good hair stylist is always a very valuable commodity. A hair stylist that specializes in dealing with your hair type is even more valuable and much harder to come by. I really believe that the cut and style of your hair can transform your look and personality from grossly ugly to a glamorous look"
