In our endeavour to understand various viewpoints on the topic, from every corner of the nation, Beauty Launchpad’s Education Special Series presents an insightful conversation with Shantanu Shukla - Chief Innovator & Mentor at Koffeure Training Academy, Lucknow.

What are your suggestions to improve the educational scenario in the Indian salon & beauty industry?

In the last couple years, there has been a great shift in the Indian Salon & Beauty Industry; we are moving towards being a more organised sector that is rapidly expanding with a tremendous customer base growing at a rate of 15-20%, every year.

To take up this opportunity, we need to have strong support from our education system, as manpower is a driving force of this industry. Now, there is a huge gap between the demand and supply of manpower. Well-qualified educators are a priority, as enhancing skill sets is a major aspiration for those looking to make a career in hair & beauty. The demand for short-term training programs is high, as the future prospects are endless.
