Nalini Naegamvala, together with her partner Yasmin, ventured into unchartered territory 35 odd years ago, with the launch of their cornerstone salon. Viewed as mavericks, little did either envisage the huge industry their adventure would spin off. What set the salon apart was their adherence to precision and technique... traits that they are still identified with. At Nalini's, hair and its treatment has always been driven by the client. Highly customized services, backed by intensive training, experience, knowledge and passion is on offer every time you walk through our doors. Our philosophy is quite simply... you.
The way we see it…what’s the point of a salon without skin & beauty? And so, we’ve added this an extension thus giving you the entire package. Apart from doing everything hair and make-up related in the salon… here, we do everything from from head-to-toe…facials, massages, manicures, pedicures and hair spas. I am here to make certain you get what it is you want, as and how you want it. I am here constantly overlooking the quality, and I do it with all the energy I once put into my salon to make it the success it still is. I appreciate you patronage, and always look forward to seeing you visit.”
Having trained under global masters such as Vidal Sassoon, Morris school, Rever school and Wella, she continues to inspire her fraternity, most of which have trained under her. A testament to her expertise and mentorship is the large number of independent salons header by her one-time students and staff. Constant training is her benchmark and that translates brilliantly onto the cutting floor.
The younger daughter of Nalini Naegamvala, has been intrinsically involved in the Nalini of Nalini & Yasmin Salons form the age of 17. Throwing herself into the various other aspects of the business as salon director, she sees the challenge as vast, thrilling, and multi-dimensional! 23 years and going strong ….. She, (having been 1 of the creative stylists for Trend Vision Wella India for over a decade) has an impressive clientele from the celebrity brigade (the names that we do not feel like mentioning here, since she believes that she is about the work and the client whom-so-ever they maybe!) as well as several loyalists. Her area of expertise, equivalent if not superior, is the technical side of hair, but she believes that if it weren’t for the haircut, there would be nothing worth ing, straightening, perming, or styling etc. Natasha gets her inspiration and motivation for her work from her clients, peers, competitors, mentors and even her students.
Elton started of as hair stylist within the four walls of his house long before he had ever theoretically learnt the subject. With a natural inclination and gift, he decided the next most obvious step was to learn the science of hairdressing and so he enrolled in our school in 2005. He hasn’t looked back! In fact since then he has developed his natural gift into a moneymaker! And laughter always follows … Cut, colour, perm etc, but with a twist! And Classic .. done to perfection… He is now a Top Stylist, Senior Trainer and a key component in the creative department in both the salon and academy. He has enabled his skill by constantly training himself, be it in the salon, amongst his peers & colleagues or at other schools. He has travelled to London in 2009 to do a course at Vidal Sassoon London and Advanced colour in New York this year. With an eternal want to do more, Elton went into make-up and now excels at it, having done shoot-upon-shoot, bride-upon-bride. He now is the senior trainer, both in hair & make-up at our academy.
Nicole, with a variety of interests is a keen and capable hair stylist, and make-up artiste at Nalini’s salon. She started by doing the course at our academy in 2005, and further went on to do a number of additional courses, namely Colour Correction with L’Oreal, and in 2009 travelled to London to do another at Vidal Sassoon. To get to know Nicole is to get to know naughty-come-nice! These 2 qualities make Nicole a joy to be around. She beautifully combines these qualities with the art of hair dressing. Presently she holds the position of Senior Stylist, Senior Trainer: Hair & Make-up.
Deepti as we know her is the giggly yet ever-reliable pillar of trust. Quiet, docile, dependable are some of the more endearing qualities to this person. She started her career with Nalini’s salon in 2005 by first doing the hairdressing course and then going on to become one of our senior stylists. Along the way, she has done the master class and colour correction at L’Oreal in 2008, and the year before that, having shown tremendous growth travelled to London to do a 1 week course with SAKS. Today, she holds the position of Senior Stylist in the salon Senior Trainer and Course Coordinator in the academy. To give credit where credit is due, things would not function the same at the academy if we didn’t have Deepti, as is in the salon.
Carey the “prankster” as we know him to be, began hairdressing after a friend who was in the fraternity seemed to love what he was doing. What started of as just a job, has gone on to become a passion. In 2006, he joined our academy and since has grown to become a keen stylst. Training comes naturally, men’s haircutting a natural gift and an inadvertent love for making women look the best they possibly can. He has since, travelled to London in 2009 to do Salon Creative at Vidal Sassoon. He styled the hair for one of Mumbai’s undeniably more talented actors’ Boman Irani in one of his films. Today, he holds the position of Senior Stylist and Senior Trainer at Nalini Education.
Francis is a go-getter if ever there was one! He started of his career on the high seas in the marine navy, and the ripe age of 40 (although let me assure you, you wouldn’t have guessed it if we hadn’t spill the beans), he enrolled in the hair basic course at The Nalini Academy in 2007 to chase a dream he had wanted to follow for years, and make it a reality. Francis has in this short period shown a keen interest and steady growth in the salon. Today, he is fast developing with a steady clientele in the salon.
As barbers go, in our opinion, we are of the belief that Riyaz is amongst the best. Natasha herself endorses his skill, and suggests that most of her male clients should and can trust him implicitly. She often is completely enamored by not only his creativity and finesse, but also his attention to detail. As demeanors go, Riyaz is tremendously loyal, a kind a dear friend to all his clients and has a talent to match.
Ayesha’s vivacious personality was part of the reason she chose this profession…. Her love for people! She wanted to be able to combine that with something creative. And thus this! She is 2003 alumni of the basic hair course form the Nalini Academy. She has had further technical refinement from Vidal Sassoon, London 2006 and in 2010. She is actively involved in the styling for various film productions like Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Kidnap, Luck, Rocket Singh, and the likes of Imran Khan, Ranbir Kapoor (Rocket Singh), Genelia D’souza, Sameer Dattani, Shahzaan Padamsee, Gauher Khan, Brunah Abdullah, Avantika Malik, Arman Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit are all her loyal clients. She has even done several advertisements like Coke etc. She currently heads the department for styling the hair on film productions, as well as does so through contacts and accolades she has built up on her own. Ayesha has also had her work featured in print advertisements everywhere. She was also responsible for CNN IBN anchors’ styling. Presently, she handpicks her clients, bringing them into the salon as and when possible in between her very busy film and media work.

Nalini, having received her training from global masters at Vidal Sasson, Toni and Guy, Morris School, Rever School and Wella School, has always recognized the the necessity of education in this field. She also has the foresight to get international trainers to visit the academy regularly and keep abreast with the latest trends and technological advancements. The salon has always been a hotbed of creativity, having spawned nearly all of Mumbai's successful independent stylists. Having received this validation that education and hands-on training are crucial to the growth of the industry, Nalini soon realized her dream and opened an internationally competent education institution, encompassing both the creative and technical aspects of hair. With make-up, grooming and all things beauty rounding off the curriculum, the Academy in collaboration with the Wella brand, is a name of considerable repute. In order for 1 to become part of the faculty, the selected stylist has to have been on the floor for a designated number of years, undergoes a rigorous internal “train the trainer” programme…to be cleared by all other faculty members, only to then be certified a trainer. The school has always been around, and in 2005 the Nalini's Academy opened its doors and the response justified its presence. Catering to a wide spectrum of potential stylists, various models are in place to suit vast student permutations.
We are in constant need of models for our academy. In case you would like to be 1 for any of these categories:
|* Hair Cut|
|* Make-up & HairStyling|
1. For our make-up & hairstyling models, for every 5 sessions with us, “you” the model will get a free haircut
* These sessions are under the observation of our trainers who have themselves undergone rigorous training
* Please be informed that these sessions can take a couple of hours as the trainees are in need of the time
