But during this lockdown, I am building on my mental being by taking inspiration from different avenues and sketching it in my own way – because art is not what you see but what you make others see. On the other hand, I am also trying to help my clients through awareness and encourage them not to use box colour or cut their own hair,” — Karan Deol, Artistic Head & Owner, Ellora Salons

We wish and pray for the lockdown period to end soon — meanwhile, this is the best time to update and upgrade yourselves.
