The outward appearance of an individual is the first thing to attract the attention of others. It is, therefore, of great importance to be presentable at all times. The Beauty and Wellness sector is growing fast and is an important industry in today’s world. The wellness and beauty industries have undergone a remarkable growth story in recent years due to young populations, rising incomes, and an overall change in conscience towards a healthier lifestyle. Beauty culture training is currently being provided by private organizations and qualified ladies to try to set up their beauty parlors in small and medium-sized towns. As a sunrise business, each of its segments has immense potential. Low levels of penetration and rising demand from non-metro cities have exposed the industry to untapped growth opportunities. It contributes a great deal to a nation’s economic development and is slowly becoming a leading employer — creating millions of job opportunities. The explanation for this exponential growth is increasing consumerism, globalization, and rising consumer lifestyles. The rapid growth of the beauty and wellness industry, together with the entrance of many small and large companies into the market, has led to a huge demand for trained staff or beauty therapists. The industry is booming and is mainly due to the growing urge of both men and women to look fashionable and feel good about themselves. Customers frequent the salon to take advantage of beauty treatments and therapies. The beauty salon must, therefore, provide its customers with a happy experience.
