Co-Founder of Zubias Threading
My wife & I founded Zubias Threading in 2008. From a single market stall, we have successfully grown our venture to 30 locations in and around Perth. My knowledge of threading dates back to my childhood; where I grew up in India with 5 sisters. That’s a lot of sisters – and a lot of beauty treatments going on in one house. More often than not, I ended up as the threading guinea pig, and a lot of my memories involve having my hair pulled out by my sisters – safe to say, by my late teens, I knew the technique very well.
Growing up, I was heavily influenced by my father who was a successful business man. Following in his footsteps, I studied a Masters Degree in Information Systems but quickly decided that was not for me. I wanted to do something with purpose, that was genuine and added value to peoples lives. It was then that my wife & I came together to create the brainchild that is Zubias. I’ve always had the drive and the willpower; and I can see the end and the bigger picture straight away, but I’m not good at detail. Whereas by wife is brilliant at that – she’s a fantastic organiser & lays beautiful plans. Together we are unbeatable, and I knew that from the get-go.
