Who We Are.
Shivarama Bhandary or ‘Shiva’ as he is fondly referred to has evolved from humble beginnings to establish himself as one of the city’s leading styling specialists, known especially for his innovative ideas. Having lost his father at the tender age of four, Shiva turned his focus to the one trade his family was renowned for. The Bhandary clan, his lineage, had in its ranks, many a professional hairdresser, revered for their commitment and artistry. With an intention of carving his personal identity, Shiva shifted his base to Mumbai in 1979 and took up a job at Star Salon, Bhandup. His passion won the respect and patronage of his clients and also the acknowledgment of his superiors who soon recognised his natural flair.
We want your hair to look fabulous, luminous and healthy.
A desire to explore newer challenges and a constant aspiration to enhance his skill-sets has been a deep-rooted philosophy for Shiva. An opportunity to hone his passion in Qatar in 1984 proved to be career-defining. Here, he not only came to be recognised for his penchant for hair styling, but also for his sheer artistry in conjuring innovative hair designs. Sports fanatics from Brazil, Korea and Sudan, with a taste for psychedelic hair-cuts composed of innumerable company logos, players and games, fed his hunger for experimentation. Having met with more success than he had anticipated, Shiva decided to return to India to share his styling philosophy across other budding talents.
We care about your hair and your well-being.
An affinity for innovativeness brought Shiva numerous accolades all through his professional life. Notable among these, was winning the Salon International event for Wild and Wacky Hair in 1998. The triumph paved the way for a three-month trip to London, where he got a chance to interact with and learn from the world’s top-line hairdressers at the Vidal Sassoon Academy. Shiva is today also widely respected in the glamour world. He has gained adulation from big names such as Late Shri Balasaheb Thackeray, Shri Uddhavji Thackeray, Shrimati Rashmiji Thackeray, Mr. Aditya Thackeray and Mr. Tejas Thackeray. He has also served renowned celebrities such as Sunil Lulla, Krishika Lulla, Kishore Lulla, Madhur Bhandarkar, Shrimati Smitaji Thackeray, Sonu Sood, Neil Nitin Mukesh and many others.
In his quest to elevate India high into the global echelons of style, Shiva’s earnestly seeks your patronage.
