One of the highlights of the two-day expo was the Ikonic Luxure booth.

Hairdresser Gaurav Bhardwaj, who is the newly appointed Creative Director at Ikonic, presented stylings sessions, too. The demo area was choc-a-bloc with eager hairstylists taking in every minute of the look-and-learn sessions. The Ikonic booths had beauty advisors that explained the nuances of each product and also allowed the visitors to get hands-on with them.

Excerpts from the interview
What do you think of Cadiveu Professional brand?
Well, it’s a Brazilian brand and the products are derived from natural ingredients. That the biggest appeal for me!
What do you think of the Indian salon industry?
I haven’t got a chance to visit many salons here. But from what I see at the Professional Beauty Expo it looks promising. After I go around visiting salons, I will be better able to comment on it.
What do you plan to do during your stay in India?
I will try to see as many tourist attractions here as possible, perhaps collect some handicraft things, too.
Will you be conducting training sessions here?
Yes, definitely. Education is definitely on the cards.
What do you think of Professional Beauty India?
It is pretty much similar to what we have in Brazil. Back there is much bigger as there are more brands, but the concept is the same. I think Professional Beauty India is doing a marvellous job.
Which is your favourite Cadiveu Professional product?
That’s difficult to say… very difficult! But if I were to pick one, it would be the Keratin care range.
