Prefixing Extra to the ‘Ordinary’

The visionary behind the success story of one of the best beauty salons in the region, Manpreet Arora sheds light on her journey

Born to a defence personnel, Manpreet Arora had an enthralling upbringing which sowed in her the seeds of a passion for art and ever since then, the expertise has only been accelerating with each passing day.

While reminiscing her childhood days, Arora shares, “We are 3 siblings including me and my 2 brothers. As a kid, I used to complain to my mother that why are we 2 boys and just 1 girl. My brothers would spend most of their time outside, playing with their friends and I used to seek for a girl who would play ‘Ghar Ghar’ with me. Not having any girl of my age around, diverted my attention from playing with dolls to reading and painting. Soon I developed a craze about make-up and hairstyling, and I started trying those looks on me and my younger brother which ignited my passion for make-up

A commerce graduate with 1-year professional diploma in Aesthetics, Arora worked in MNCs for five years and also in the government sector for half a decade, before taking the plunge and laying the foundation stone of Tresskin Beauty Salon in Mohali.
