DHARAMSHALA, June 4: One of India’s best known celebrity hair stylist, Jawed Habib today inaugurated a hair styling training course for Tibetan youths at the College for Higher Tibetan Studies, Sarah, near Dharamshala.

The hairdressing course offered by the Tibetan Career Centre, an undertaking of the Department of Home of the Central Tibetan Administration, is a Jawed Habib certified training course.

Addressing the Tibetan youths participating in the course, Jawed Habib called hair styling a “very exciting, very glamorous, and very young profession,” which requires professionalism and training.

“Three generations of my family have been in this business,” Habib said. “My grandfather, my dad, and of course me. We have been in this same profession.”

Calling the business of hair dressing “recession free,” the hair stylist expressed high hopes for the future of the business.

“I really want every second person in this country to become a hairdresser,” Habib said. “Hair doesn’t stop growing, making hair dressing the only business that is recession-free. Hair grows and computer cannot cut hair. So, we need a good hair dresser and for that, I think training is important.”

The training initiated by TCC, aims at providing career opportunity for young unemployed Tibetans in hair styling. The ongoing three-month training is being attended by 35 Tibetans from 16 Tibetan settlements in India and Nepal.

Although, the classes for the students had started two weeks ago, the inauguration ceremony was done today in the presence of Jawed Habib himself.

Karma, a trainer at the course, gave all credit for her success to Jawed Habib and said that the ongoing project could not have been possible without Habib’s help.

Following the three-month training, the participants will get a certificate accredited by Jawed Habib Academy and will also get placements in his outlets.

Jawed Habib owns and operates more than 320 hair and beauty salons across 21 states in 90 cities in India and also manages 46 academies.

Yesterday, Kalon Dolma Gyari of the DoH, felicitated Habib at the training centre.

According to an official report, they discussed further plans regarding hairdressing training at ISTL Nelamangala in Bangalore.
