From the world of advertising to the world of kids and image changing!!

Hi Friends,

This is Melissa Patheria, proprietor of Kidzappy Kids & Adults Salon. Yes! Kidzappy, its quite an unusual name for a salon and even more unusual for one that caters; newborns to senior citizens.

Keep reading to know why I chose this name.

I wasn't always in the salon business, in fact, I left my swanky career, the big national level role to follow a passion, a passion that had started years ago in Oxford, UK while doing my Bachelors and Masters.

The good old students days, where in between my classes and my assignments I would baby sit. The love of kids soon, took a back seat and just like some men follow the scent of a women, I started to follow the scent of the moolah!!!.. and the joy of the one day of the year, which is even more exciting than your birthday!!! Yes, the beautiful PAYDAY!!

But there was something lacking, where was the joy and satisfaction!! And June 2011, marked my exit from the corporate world of Digital Advertising to the arms of sabbatical. Sabbatical was a great guy, he took care of me and nursed me well. But, again, he wasn't my type. So, I hunted around for a better options and one day my sweet niece, made me realise how kid friendly salons were lacking here.

That thought gave birth to Kidzappy Kids & Adults salon in December 2012,  now its been a wonderful journey and its still going on.  In my second year, we have already moved to a bigger premise. The parents are also happy and relaxed when they get their services done, as our qualified and friendly staff, take care of them even when they are not getting their own services done. And like they say ! God Willing!! Inshallah, this is just the start :)

So, now I am happy, the cute stories of kids, the joy on their faces, when they see the Lightning Mcqueen and Barbie Mustang shaped cars, the Doreamon chair and the play room. The testimonials from parents and all in all just the satisfaction of giving someone an image change that would fetch them compliments and give them a high!!

So, have I answered the question of why the name? Or are some of you still scratching your heads. So basically, I wanted the Kids to be happy, whether they come for their services or they just accompany their parents.

So, that's all from me today, watch this space for tips and other news...

Hope you liked my first blog, please give me your suggestions as I am open to them.

Thanks
Melissa
