Not everyone has a sense of style & design, and then many have one but not the other, but Mumbai chi mulgi , Nilam B. Kenia has the rare combination of both! Originally from Kutch, but born and brought up in Mumbai, Nilam did her Majors in Psychology and then did a hair dressing course under a French tutor with specialization in cuts, styles and other technicals.
Like they say, a small spark is enough to ignite a major fire, this was the small spark that was needed to get Nilam interested, in pursuing a career in hair and makeup. She then went on to study hair styling under Franck Provost in Paris and interned with his team for 6 months as well. Nilam has also done a course in makeup from Marvie Ann Beck and courses in bridal hair styling from Seema V. Jerajani after which she went on to win a silver medal in an all India makeup contest in Runway Styling by HBS Style Speak.
She then went to London School of Makeup where she did a 3 month diploma in makeup and then got registered as an International Makeup Artist and also did makeup for a designer in the London Fashion Week! Post her return to India she has been assisting Florian Hurel over the last 2 years.
