I am Rupali Diwan
Having grown up in Mathura and Delhi, I moved to Nagpur when I married my childhood sweetheart. Some time later, I joined my mother-in-laws’ venture – Chic Beauty Parlour, which she had established in 1985. Chic is a premier beauty parlour in Nagpur and learning from her, helped me form a solid base of knowledge of the beauty industry. I have always had an eye for art and beauty, and this helped me a lot in my initial days.
To further enhance and fine tune my skills, I joined L’Oreal Academy in Mumbai for a 6-month comprehensive course, after which I did an internship with Jean Claude Biguine Salon.
I am Orachic.
Even all these years in the field, I still had trouble finding appropriate products which suits my skin or didn’t give me side effects. This led me to establish my own skin care line – Orachic. Orachic is a completely herbal line of products. My mother-in-law, Mrs. Sudha Diwan has also joined me in this venture.
We will be launching a new line of products by March 2017, and we are also in planning stages to open our own chain of salons in the near future.
Apart from giving my time to the parlour and building my own product range, I also organize seminars and take classes to make women aware of their skin types and to guide them in how to take better care of it, suggesting what products to use and other beauty regimes.
As with any new venture, Orachic has also had it’s challenges. Taking on the established brands in the market is a daunting challenge. However, I am not the one to give up. I’m confident that with hard work and perseverance, my line will be the best in the country.
Have faith in yourself, never give up. This is your time, pursue your dream. It is never too late to learn anything, trust yourself and push yourself to be better than yesterday. You must always be open to learn.
