His father runs a salon in Chandigarh and He always hated to be a Hair Dresser may be because of people's opinion (Nai, Hajjam) about this profession. After completing his studies He went to Mumbai for work, unluckily he couldn't find a good job so He started sitting at my uncle's Salon in Mumbai. And also He surfed almost each and every site on hair, hair dressing, coloring, Styling etc and use to read interviews of top hair stylists of the world. He use to sit on net for hours and use to learn different tips and techniques and use to practice on his client.

However, somewhere down the line I changed my mind and started working on hair. I can cut hair Cut hair using Clippers, Scissors, Razor, Candle Fire, Piece of Glass, Razors and even blind folded" Grins Nadeem.
Nadeem Says "I want to be Great Hair Stylist, that's my Passion, My Ambition, My Dream; I have no gurus or people in my field who I idolize, It just my passion, my hard work, my scissors, my god who have helped me in mastering the art of hair dressing practically as well as theoretically"
"Although no one can be a 100% perfect hair stylist because good hairstylist learns something with every new client"
He want to tell them hair styling is an art and a good hair stylist is always a very valuable commodity. A hair stylist that specializes in dealing with your hair type is even more valuable and much harder to come by. He really believe that the cut and style of your hair can transform your look and personality from grossly ugly to a glamorous look.
