Bringing those who relentlessly work on your body behind the scenes to the limelight, Auras Enterprises announces the first of its kind awards of India – India Hair and Beauty Awards 2015. With a high powered jury comprising of prominent names like Fashion Designer Raakesh Agarvwal, Hair Stylist Sylvie; Fashion Columnist Salloli Kumar, Choreographer & Stylist Ajay Bisht, Former Miss India Vanya Mishra, Beauty Expert Shobha Segal & Pooja Garg nail and skin expert will be crowning the best of the salon and beauty industry. The winners spread across 30 categories will be honoured on 9th of May at the Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium at a red carpet gala award nite.

The brain behind the concept Sam Ali shares his thought on the reasoning behind these Awards: “India has never had an award to felicitate or talk about the work that goes backstage. It is very important that we start recognising this talented group of people and give them the due credit. A lot of study and hardwork goes into it to make someone beautiful from the head to toe.”

Ali adds further, “KPMG Wellness Sector report released in April this year projected that the size of India’s beauty and wellness market would nearly double to Rs.80,370 Crore by 2017/18 from Rs.41,224 Crore in 2012/13. It says that the business is so good that it has caught the attention of private equity firms but it is quite unfortunate that there are no awards for this industry that appreciates and recognizes its creativity.”
