Power Woman- Gita Gopinath, the woman behind Sundri, a world class salon!

When we talk about unisex salons, most of us end up thinking it as a new age funda, but not many know that there are women who have been ahead of times, and they did this some 27 odd years ago, yes 27..

Gita Gopinath is one such woman, who not only dared to dream but also fulfilled and nurtured her dream to the extent that today she boasts of a salon that is 27 years old. Gita was married back then when she started all this, she faced some resistance from her family, more so from the husband and in-laws side, but she did not give up. She was one amongst the first batch who was trained by Blossom Kochar, back then. Once she enrolled for the program with Blossom Kochar, there was no looking back. Starting with a small salon, today she has a multistories building to call of her own. Situated in sector 14 market of Faridabad, Sundri by Gita Gopinath is one of the most reputed salons in the city. Here is Gita Gopinath at her salon..

Equipped with the latest technologies and trends, today Sundri is a perfect mix of modern methods and age old experience. The place is a beautiful one indeed and Gita’s personality reflects in each corner of the place. I was so surprised to find a floor place dedicated to a small library having philosophical books, on positive mindset and lifestyle, exclusively for the members of the salon, where in they can sit in peace, read, relax and unwind. Its such a beautiful thought I must say and the credit goes to Gita for thinking and planning all this along with her designer Deepa Devarajan, who helped bringing that serenity to the place. Deepa not only helped on designing this floor, but she is responsible for the overall design of the salon and its a perfect example of one power woman meeting and collaborating with the other.

Coming back to Gita, she has not just successfully taken Sundri to newer heights, but also passed on the legacy to her younger son. Karthik Gopinath, Gita’s son was a step ahead of his mother, as he not just got inclined to this business of styling at a much younger age, but also added feathers to his cap by winning prestigious competitions into hair styling in his teens itself. He is a shy dude who knows his work well and lets his work speak instead of himself. With the mother son duo putting in all their efforts at the right place, I see the future of Sundri stronger than ever. It was a pleasure meeting both of them and learning so much about their life, their struggles, their perseveration and their devotion towards their work. Its truly inspiring to meet such people who are so clear of their dreams and leave no stone unturned to follow and realise them.

I wish them both a great deal of luck, and for all of my readers, all  I urge is that do visit Sundri once, get yourself pampered with their services and you will know how different your experience will be.

Sanghvi Brands Launches The Luxurious Rossano Ferretti Hairspa At The Manor, New Delhi

Sanghvi Brands announced the launch of the Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa at Zehen at the Manor, New Delhi. Having founded more than 20 salons around the world, Italian born Rossano Ferretti has revolutionized the beauty and hairdressing industry with his novel inclination towards his customers’ individual and natural beauty. Ferretti believes in highlighting and enhancing the inherent beauty in each of his customers, and finds his inspiration in the natural fall of the hair and its individual characteristics. In having stripped down beauty and hairdressing to its most natural, organic elements, Rossano Ferretti has done away with the staged perceptions and norms of beauty in his Hair Spas, and has thus transformed the way people perceive hairdressing and hair salons. This fresh, yet luxurious approach to hairdressing has been termed as “Metodo Rossano Ferretti”, or “The Method.” The Duchess of Cambridge, Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon, Dakota Fanning, Monica Bellucci, Vanessa Paradis, Uma Thurman, Kylie Minogue and Elizabeth Hurley, among many others have visited the salons globally.

“The Method”, combined with some of the most beautiful locations in the world including in Hotel de Paris in Monte-Carlo, Four Seasons in Milan and other exclusive hotels in Rome, Madrid, Los Angeles, New York and Paris are two of the principal essentials required for a Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa. This combination gives Rossano Ferretti customers the ultimate, luxuriously customized experience.

Making up the rest of Ferretti’s team are international stylists, Michele Finessi & Laurent Visco, both of whom will be available at The Manor.

Michele Finessi has worked at the Ferretti Hair Spas in Venice, Parma & Beverly Hills. Deriving from Ferretti’s approach, Finessi too, incorporates his client’s personality, personal style, & their facial structure into his ideal look specifically tailored to compliment each person’s unique identity, making them feel and look their most beautiful. Finessi has styled many renowned personalities and has also been a stylist at the Oscars. He is now at The Zehen at The Manor, New Delhi to work his magic in India. Laurent Visco too has worked with many French and International renowned personalities. At the age of 23, Laurent Visco came to India to pursue his passion for hairdressing and has been creating magic with his personal style for the past 10 years.

This exclusive Hair & Scalp Insurance room will offer 5 new services/products for complete hair care.


Products in Highlight


  • Olaplex
  • Antidot
  • Malibu C
  • Wet Brush
  • Splitender

*Olaplex Olaplex is a revolutionary hair treatment, which is globally dubbed as an insurance for hair. The bottled goodness is a complete salon system that delves deeper into the hair’s structural integrity and rebuilds broken hair bonds. That means, now there’s a healthy solution for that all that harm done by repeated heat, sunlight, hair styling, bleach and chemical treatments. I personally got this done and I have to say that my hair did feel a lot different. Its been a week since I got it done and with just one sitting my hair fall has reduced considerably and I am sure it will do wonders in another couple of sittings. Its recommended to get done a Olaplex treatment at least once a month.



*Antidot – This is revolutionary!
Antidot Pro is a revolutionary product like no other on the market! In most cases, Antidot will prevent any burning, itching, irritation or any discomfort
while your color application is processing and can even prevent these effects up to 24 hours after coloration.

*Malibu C
A Malibu treatment typically will remove excess buildup in your hair caused from hard water, chlorine from swimming and water softeners.

*Wet Brush – Wet Brush is the #1 selling professional brush in the USA.
The Wet Brush glides effortlessly through wet or dry hair for healthy detangling and eliminates all tugging, tearing, pulling or ripping. Perfect for all hair types, it will give you gorgeous, healthy, tangle-free locks in minutes.

*SplitenderYou don’t need to cut your hair short to trim off your split ends, the Splitender does the work for you!
It trims the very end of the hair strand while preserving the length of the hair. I found this simply great, because most of the times the worry that we face while getting split ends removed is reduction of hair length, but this product helps removing split ends within seconds without doing anything with the length.


A special mention about the staff of Cut & Style, they were extremely warm and hospitable. Their attention to detail and knowledge of product and services was superlative. I enjoyed my hair getting pampered by them and it was a lovely experience. I highly recommend you getting these treatments and insure your hair against the adverse affects of hair rebonding, hair colour and other chemical applications.
