Kalpana group of Beauty salons and Spas comprise of some of the most-well-distinguished wellness parlours in India. With a rich history spanning more than four decades and flourishing under the guidance of our founder, Smt. Elizabeth Chacko, we at Kalpana, cater premium beauty care and wellness treatments for both women as well as men at affordable rates.
As one of contemporary beauty industry’s leading luminaries, Dr. Elizabeth Chacko has balanced years of professional proficiency with a selfless, almost relentless drive for effecting a change in the prevalent social scenario, especially in the one that pertains to lower class girls and women.
The eclectic cosmetologist’s portfolio which spans over 40 years speaks about tales of aspiration, perseverance, hard work and continued excellence. Upon graduating school and college from the much revered British Oakgrove School, Mussoorie and honours in economics from Jesus and Mary College, Delhi. She set out on a journey to urge people to dream by opening the doors of new possibilities to them. Nursing a longstanding interest in dermatology, she pursued a two year course in electrolysis and cosmetology from the United States. The dream she wanted to turn to reality, was aptly named ‘Kalpana’ and thus began the success story of one of India’s most recognizable brand names in beauty and wellness sector.
The first ever salon was set up in Connaught Place, Delhi and the second in Chennai. In 1979, Kerala, her native land welcomed her with the first of its kind beauty salon in Kochi. At a time and in a society where confidence wasn’t one of the strong suits among the women in the country, she introduced the concept of beautification. Adopting a wide range of premium quality beauty products, all synthesized from natural means, she quite literally opened a brand new world for the women of the land, a world full of awe and possibilities.
Breaking the prevailing misconception among the society regarding the beauty industry, she successfully managed to effect an upsurge in her number of patrons. Taking young girls from unfortunate economic backgrounds under her wing, she imparted them training free of monetary cost. Even making Kalpana’s brand presence felt in South India and across the Middle East, she organized numerous beauty pageants for providing young women with a platform to showcase their talent and embrace their true beauty.
While she is happy to talk about her achievements as a businesswoman and teacher she is even happier to say how she has closely watched how women have changed over these 40 years. “They were sceptical to come in for an appointment back then. But today I have trained so many girls who have become independent and have conquered heights in the beauty industry”.
With an ever-burning desire to excel, she truly believes this is just the beginning of her great adventure, an adventure to keep on inspiring newer generations and turning their dreams into reality.
Is it merely trying your best to look like a Celebrity? Or is it something more?
Even when you know it is not your skin colour that defines you.
If you ever come to Kalpana, you will realize we don’t sell beauty here. We don’t endorse delusions on how to achieve it either. Because we know it won’t be real. Because we know YOU ARE WORTH MUCH MORE THAN IT.
Never ever making compromises on your health, never resorting to measures that harm your natural skin and hair texture, we work towards ENHANCING THE BEST IN YOU. Because Beauty is not something which can be added or subtracted artificially. IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS THERE IN YOU. ALWAYS AND EVERY TIME. It just needs to be brought out.
Being one of the most renowned wellness establishments in India with a long list of clientele that includes celebrities and famous personalities, Kalpana is now going global with the opening of our latest branch in Dubai.
So as we march on, what we strive for is to sprinkle the unique ideology we nurture on the world. We want to redefine the concept of beauty. To tell people whitening their skin in the best possible manner is certainly not the way to achieve it. And neither is cutting fat to exorbitant amounts and sharpening their nose. Beauty resides in them. They just need to look, that’s it.
Hence with our core values thoroughly ingrained, we wish to remain in the forefronts of beautification and hospitality sectors. We aspire to bring million more smiles on people’s faces making them a whole lot more confident going forward in their lives.
