Name any Baroda socialite or celebrity and nine times on ten, it's Kity Bhayani who is taking care of her beauty needs - whether they are members of the erstwhile Baroda royal family, businesswomen, corporate wives, doctors or high-flying professionals, designers and artists. She is also the preferred beautician for local fashion photographers doing model shoots.
Kity's two-storied bungalow salon has enough rooms to afford strict privacy and it is done up in an understated way that is so much her own signature. Perhaps that's what endears her to her clients. Plus the fact that she is trained in ayurveda and naturopathy and makes all the products she uses in her salon herself and is very particular about the natural, organic and herbal ingredients. Since apricots are not available in Baroda, for instance, they are ordered from Delhi, to be crushed and pureed into her facial creams. For a special facial that she has put together for mature skins that would correct dehydration and pigmentation, she imports avocado oil which is its chief ingredient!
"I believe that real beauty comes from within," she smiles. "Balanced diet and correct food habits, exercise and meditation go a long way in making a person feel good and look beautiful. We just do the cleansing, toning and moisturising!" Kity studied beauty treatments with the late Sushilla Vaswani and Mohsena Suleimani and has done several international hair and skin treatment courses with exams in India. Kity trains her staff extremely well and they do their job competently and in almost pin-drop silence. She has 'specialist' technicians for hair treatments, scientifically worked massage procedures, special facials for teenaged to mature skin types, expert bridal make-up (which is her speciality and for which she has bookings weeks in advance!), and excellent pedicure and manicure. In keeping with the demand of her young and trendy clients, she has herself got training in Nail Art and temporary Tattoos.
Kity does not advise chemical treatments and she rarely offers them in her salon. All the products she uses are actually edible, comprising herbs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and natural oils and extracts. For instance, the Apricot-kesar-sandal-almond facial sounds good enough to eat! "Women must realise that they need to look after themselves too," she says. "They spend all their lives looking after other people, their needs and desires. So when they come to us, we make sure that they feel special, they relax and are fussed over and that they go home looking and feeling better!"
