Ambika is a well-known name in the world of hair & beauty. Her 6 salons at South Extension, Rajouri Garden, Chhatarpur,  Model Town, Kochi and Trivandrum handles celebrity circuit that includes models, film stars, fashion designers, publishers, socialites, etc. Besides being the most sought after name for every fashion related event in the capital, her turf extends internationally as well. She has done fashion shows in New York, London, Paris, Singapore, Dubai, Mauritius, Switzerland etc. Ambika has even tried her hand at movies such as "Taal" doing Aishwarya Rai's face. Due to time constraint she chooses to spend more time at the salon that handles close to 300 clients a day.


It was basically a natural progression for Ambika Pillai as a makeup artist to come up with products, which complement and go well with our Indian skin tones. The company ‘Ambika Pillai Sales Pvt Ltd.’ was born in 2008. The Ambika Pillai Makeup Product Range currently comprises of Lipsticks, Lip Glosses, Mascaras, Lip Pencils, Eye kohl Pencil, Liquid Liner, Aqua Powder, Nail Polishes, Nail Polishes that change colour with your every mood, Makeup Brushes and Hand bags as well.

Working on getting the perfect textures, colours and feel of our products which actually complement the Indian skin tones has been a labour of love for her.

 We, as a company believe in giving back to the community, and since Cankids (children battling cancer) is a cause very close to our hearts, it is a charity that we support.
