Mane man to open cradles
- Jawed Habib promotes education in hairdressing

Hairdresser — a person who cuts and styles your hair. Try this definition on this affable tress guru and he begs to differ. For Jawed Habib, a hairdresser is a skilled scissor-hand who knows hair science well.

In Jamshedpur to promote good hair care and education in the field of hair dressing, the mane man declared that his company, Jawed Habib Hair & Beauty Ltd, would soon open schools across Jharkhand for offering certificate courses in hairdressing.

“It is no more the naai we knew ages ago. No work is mean. I believe hair styling is one of the fastest growing professions. No matter how much digitisation happens, computers will never give you hair cut. Thus manpower in this sector is always needed,” said Habib during a news meet at Beldih Club on Friday.

Habib and his partners are currently looking for space in Ranchi and Jamshedpur to start the schools that will offer varied courses from month-long to six-month duration.

There will be separate modules for professionals and freshers. “We have 55 schools all across the country and we are keen to foray into Ranchi and Jamshedpur. The thrust will be on hair science. Our firm guarantee jobs for all students,” said Habib who has already got 440 salons across 100 cities.

Divulging details, the hair pro said that the module would be exactly the same as that of Delhi or Mumbai, but the fee would be much less.

“The fees will be charged on a weekly basis, starting Rs 4,000. Professional teachers will guide the students,” he added.
