We often hear of a hairdresser who is also a make-up artist or a fashion stylist. The Indian beauty industry is full of multi-talented people. But people who have diverse talents are few. One such example is Priscilla Corner.

Diverse talents
An expert and experienced hairdresser, Priscilla is a known name in Kolkata. She is the Creative Head of the June Tomkyns chain of hair salons.

Her poems have been included in an anthology of Anglo Indian poets called Voices in the Verandah, and she has also written several poems on the theme of beauty for The Telegraph T2. She is also an accomplished playback singer and actress.
Priscilla’s formal training and expertise is in beauty and hairstyling. Over the past 20 years she has established herself with her skill, hard work and dedication toward her profession. In East India, she is simply regarded as the best in the business. Priscilla had been instrumental in opening the first eco hair salon in Kolkata – the June Tomkyns Eco Salon. She has been a beauty columnist with the The Telegraph T2 for the past seven years, and previously was a columnist with Femina Bangla.

Educator par excellence
Priscilla has numerous high profile models and actors in her client list, including Kareena Kapoor, Rituparna Sengupta, and Raima Sen. Be it in the salon or with celebrities or for collaborations with brands such as Schwarzkopf Professional, Priscilla ensures that she leaves her mark. She has been an inspiration for many hairdressers, especially from Kolkata, who look up to her as a benchmark.
Priscilla is also committed towards hair education. She believes in expanding the sphere of knowledge – hers as well as that of others in the industry. With multiple certifications in hairstyling from reputed institutes and hair stylists both in India and the UK (like Vidal Sassoon, Toni and Guy, Akin Konizi), Priscilla has managed to elevate her love for styling and beauty with technical skills and the latest know-hows.
