Face to Face with Hifsa Khan

Published

Banker turned boss lady Hifsa Khan run one of Lahore’s oldest and prestigious beauty salons. With a flux of new age parlors in the market, we sat down with Hifsa to discuss how her salon stands out from others.

Q1. Tell us a little about your salons history, how did you end up entering the beauty industry and what inspired you?

Although I have been working as a corporate Banker with many International Banks including ABN Amro but, I have always been inclined towards Arts since childhood, looking back, perhaps it was that facet of my personality which slowly became dominant over the years till it took a stronghold over my career.

This U turn came to my life when I got married and started a family. The break that I took for taking care of my baby gave me a chance to breathe and explore my inner passion. I had always loved makeup and though my own wedding makeup was great, I had found that the bridal services industry was wanting in the amount of time, love and care offered to the bride, and that void became my cue…

Q.2 Your signature bridal makeup is loved by many, how would you describe your style?

My style is customized as per my bride’s face and expectations. So if I fell in love with Anushka Sharma’s no make up look on her wedding, at the same time I like to give some of my bride’s traditional & royal red look. I also love the soft peachy look with shimmery eyes giving my bride a heavenly gorgeous look. That’s why we conduct Demo meeting with the brides before their big day to decide which makeup style will make them look best. So being an artist I have to keep an eye on latest makeup trends also and I always keep myself equipped with all the latest makeup techniques. 

Q.3 Makeup can be harmful to the skin if applied all the time, what beauty regime would you advise for clean and clear skin?

No, if the makeup products are of high quality, they are not harmful for the skin but yes the proper cleaning of makeup is necessary before you go to bed. And for clean skin, you have to follow the skin care regime which includes proper water intake, enough sleep, use of quality skin products & above all positive thinking which keeps you glowing inside and out. 

Q.4 Your salon offers Thalgo skin care services, which would you recommend most & why?

Thalgo has a wide range of skin care products and I must say all have magical effects. But my favourite Thalgo service is “Thalgo Silicium Facial”. This treatment is for anti-aging skin and many clients at Hifsa Khan Salon have tried this service and their feedback is amazing. I myself get this treatment for my skin and found it more than I have heard about its magical results. 

Q.5 What kind of hair treatments can one find at your salon?

Hifsa Khan Salon has wide range of hair treatments ranging from organic to chemical based treatments having quick results. Our most famous Hair Treatment is Organic Ayurvedic Hair Treatment which is anti-dandruff, stops premature grey hair and improves hair loss. To have better results, 3-4 sittings are recommended in a month. Its application is very simple and we have its retail box available also in the salon which has 4 portions of the treatment. 

Q.6 Do you plan to venture into skincare and cosmetics?

We do have strategic collaborations with many skin, hair and makeup brands but with the emerging trends of the industry, it would be inevitable to have our own range of makeup products.

Like I myself get my makeup items assembled in customized lots from international manufacturers. And sometimes it becomes very hectic so it’s far easier to convert your imagined colors into your own products and launch it as retail too.

Time to be flawlessly flawed

Published

on

These Pakistani models are endorsing makeup free look and we totally agree with their idea of being comfortable with one’s flaws having no fear of using a concealer or a lipstick.

A few months back, Sonam Kapoor posted a picture of her face without makeup embracing her flaws with a total grace and confidence. It looks like, being confident without makeup is now a new trend as we see many people posting their bare faces and preaching the new concept of self love.

Now that Ramzan is here, all the bludgers out there (including us) would find a way to stay away from the hassle of getting ready and putting a lot of makeup. So, this is the perfect time that our models and actors are giving the right vibes full of self acceptance by putting their makeup free faces on instagram. And guess what, we are totally loving it!!
