Hairstylist Candice Mohan has launched two new additions to her CandiceMohantt brand.

At an event at his company at One Woodbrook Place in Port of Spain on October 27, Mohan announced his acquisition of the franchise as the official distributor of international makeup brand J Cat Beauty at TT, and introduced Saanvi, its limited edition cultural clothing collection.

“J Cat Beauty is a premium brand at an affordable price,” Mohan told WMN.

“None of J Cat Beauty’s ingredients, formulations or finished products are tested on animals anywhere in the world.”

Additionally, J Cat Beauty is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, a program that delivers cruelty-free certification for products not tested on animals. It is operated by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics in the United States and Canada. The Los Angeles-based makeup company was founded in 2013 and offers a wide range of products.

“There were a lot of requirements to acquire the brand franchise. It was a huge investment, but I felt it was a great investment.

Not a makeup artist herself, Mohan said she had contracted the services of trained makeup artists to work in her salon.

Her Saanvi collection, she said, was designed by her and is a personalization of Western and modern style.

“It can range from simple to glamorous. I made it in such a way that it could be personalized by adding or removing… The parts are delivered between eight and 12 working days after the fitting.

Mohan, 37, has worked in the beauty industry for over 14 years. She started as an intern in a hairdressing salon at the age of 17. “At first it was just to fund my graduate studies.” At the time, she was an engineering student at UWI, St Augustine Campus.

“It (the hairstyle) was not something I really liked at the time, but after two or three years I found myself in the business”, working in several salons before deciding to open the his.

Born and raised in Mayaro, Mohan moved to Port of Spain in 2010.

“In 2016, I started doing it from my home in Diego Martin. In 2018, I started working for One Woodbrook. As a single mother of two teenage boys, she said she appreciates the flexibility her profession offers, especially since most things are done online.

“As a single parent and with the restrictions in my industry caused by covid, I had to find different sources of income. Covid19 unleashed creativity for sustainability… the responsibility of the economy took precedence The concept of online marketing was pretty appealing. “

“My dream has always been to start a business that supports the lifestyle, and I did! “
