“Challenges are meant to be conquered”
A former teacher, Ms. Bharti Taneja started her own salon in 1988 with a meagre amount of two thousand rupees only. “Beauty industry was not as big as you see it today,” she shares. Ms Bharti Taneja is not the one who gives up just like that. Armed with passion and a strong will, she went ahead and transformed the Indian beauty industry.

In no time, Ms Bharti Taneja founded Alps Beauty Group.
However, it hasn’t been an easy-breezyroad to success for Ms Bharti Taneja. She had her share of challenges and hardships. Arthritis tried to slow her down in the early years of her career. Due to the severe pain, she could not stand or move for over a year. But she did not stop working. Even Arthritis could not break her spirit. “My passion for beauty saved me,” she says. Soon, with disciplined lifestyle and willpower, she beat Arthritis and proved that ‘where there’s a will there’s a way.’
