These days everyone including both men and women used to go to a beauty salon or beauty parlor for hair cutting, massage, pedicure, threading, and many other services.

Although there might be a hair cutting boy or barber in your locality, people started liking to spend some time weekly or in 15 days in a sophisticated & well-equipped saloon to get relaxed. But still, women are the major customers of those saloons.

    1. Hi Mohan,
      I started my beauty salon 2 months ago. I think you could buy basic needs from the store near you. Or shop online from some specific websites recommended by your friends. If you need some suitable products later which are safe and have good results to be used in your beauty parlour, I highly recommend I bought mine from this website.
