Quick Overview

Hachette Flame: The Story Of My Mother Shahnaz Husain

This is the story of my mother who was born a flame; a flame so bright that not all the flood waters of the world could douse a single spark...' Universally recognized as much for her flaming tresses and her inimitable style as for her stupendous and sustained global entrepreneurial success, Shahnaz Husain is a legend in the world of cosmetology and pioneering Ayurvedic beauty treatments. Starting with a small beauty clinic in the veranda of her home set up with the help of her devoted husband and daughter, Shahnaz Herbals employs over 1800 people today, with exports to sixty countries and a range of over 250 high-selling products. Born into an aristocratic family, Shahnaz is seen as never before through her childhood, her adolescence and the charmed years of her early married life. In this warm and affectionate biography, shot through with vividly-remembered anecdotes of her vivacious mother's years of struggle and the close-knit family life they all shared, her daughter, Nelofar Currimbhoy, provides a fascinating insight into the personal and professional life of this remarkable woman. Beautifully recreating the incredible ups and the inevitable downs of her mother's extraordinary life, knowing her as only a daughter can, Nelofar Currimbhoy has infused her writing of this amazing journey with something of that special Shahnaz Husain spirit.
