The stylization of hair and hairstyle is not as easy as it seems. You’re required to be artistic, creative, friendly, organized and diplomatic. I had the pleasure of conversing with the incredible Suk Ram, Founder of Suk Ram Haircare who is the ultimate definition of class, elegance, and fashion. With his set of skills, familiarity, and experience he created a high-class and innovative range of hairstyling.
Thank you for taking some time off from your busy schedule to answer a few questions about your life, Suk Ram, could you tell us about what carried you to this specific occupation pathway?
We all have dreams, some of us desire to earn a comfortable lifestyle while some want to be famous. However, since I was a child loved to experiment with my talents on friends and family, of course on those who would let me. At the age when children love to play games on consoles and sports, I would be practicing hairstyles on anyone who would let me and just give me a chance.
What do you think is the most critical part of a hairdresser’s work? Especially for someone who is as globally recognized as you?
Customer service is a crucial part of working as a hairdresser. You need to be able to make clients happy and satisfied with your judgment and creation it’s all about building trust as they can be in a vulnerable position. You need to give them the self-confidence they are desiring for and that they will look outstanding once you’re done with the hairstyle. Your hairstyle should be such that it can be easily identifiable. It should be suitable for the individual and their lifestyle.
What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now? We are hearing often about the launch of your new haircare range, Can you give us a little insight?
I’m being asked about this daily within the industry.
I’ve launched my new Haircare range this year, The innovation is all about sustainable living, being connected with nature and the earth, what we call eco-friendly. My Haircare range is Vegan-friendly, Free of sulphates and parabens, Cruelty-free, made with the extremely fine Organic Ingredients.
My 27 long range, manufactured in Australia, fuses luxury with nature curated for consumers online and salons to retail within wet-line and styling categories alongside luxurious additions to the range in home and body care categories adding to the promotion of all-round wellbeing and a more natural, sustainable way of life
It’s a really exciting time and it’s going to be a very special year with tremendous new and exciting experiences.
What are some of the main duties that you perform regularly? And what takes up most of your time?
The biggest duties I perform at present are looking after the clients that have been with me during my journey in my personal salon and hosting product knowledge seminars across the UK and abroad for my salon stockists.
There are many more things that I invest my time in also.
What takes up most of your time?
Hmm, that’s difficult to answer. But I think Formalities! I think these formalities actually mean a “waste of time”. and this is the only part of my business world which I neither like nor appreciate.
You’ve worked with many known Celebrities in your career. Who has had the best hair to work with?
There’s no way I could choose one person. I’ve loved working with everybody, but for diverse reasons. They all offer a certain something in their own way. There’s not one person I enjoy working with more than the other because at the end of it all they all have remarkable hair and fantastic personalities.
What’s one hair product or hair tool you can’t live without?
Ok! That’s always quite difficult to choose. Well, if it’s about choosing the one then at present I must say it’s my Volume Powder that I love most right now, its a re-workable, lightweight powder that boosts the hair for increased texture and volume. The results are phenomenal.
The fine, mineral powder absorbs the natural oils and product residue on your hair and scalp to give the maximum body with a dry matte finish.
How do you keep up with the times where hair fashion is concerned?
I study a lot and I love to explore my field to examine what new commercial trends are coming threw the runaways a season in advance In addition to this, I believe I am in constant training mode, I feel that to be able to keep up with the times, one has to stay in the loop constantly.
How should people connect with you?
Well, it will be an honor if people would like to connect with me; You can contact me on Email, Instagram, Facebook or at Sukram Hair Care I’ll be very much delighted and responsive to every query or appointment.
Thank you for letting me interview you today. This was very encouraging!
