Kolkata: Banking on his popularity among the youngsters, celebrity hair stylist and owner of popular salon chain Jawed Habib has plans to fan out to thousands of Indian towns and metro cities in the next five years.
Thousands of salons will come up under both brand names, Jawed Habib and Jawed Habib Express, across India’s small and big towns, besides metro cities, Jawed Habib said.
Presently Habib has 545 outlets in 110 cities in 24 states of the country.
“Please mind 65 per cent of India’s population is young. For them money doesn’t matter so long looking good is important,” Jawed Habib told PTI here.
“From the practice of putting flowers in your oil smeared hair to centre parting, hair cut has evolved a lot in the past 10 years or so,” he said.
“We cannot copy London or for that matter Kolkata will not copy Goa. Every place has it’s own unique distinct style and we will not alter that,” he said.
About his plans to open salons abroad, Habib said “We are already located in UAE, UK and Singapore. We would definitely like to spread our wings further.” PTI
