about me

Hi there!

It is said that one should follow one’s passion and that’s just what I have done. Whether I am styling someones hair, giving a makeover or dolling up a bride, the sheer joy on their face makes my day. Everybody is beautiful. I just smoothen the rough edges.

14 years of experience, right from my formative years of working in a range of beauty salons for 5 star hotels in Mumbai and Goa, gave me the confidence to set up my own salon. Initially I successfully set up and ran Salons in Goa for various hotels. I launched my own Brand "TenderLocks - Make-up, Hair and Beauty Studio" in 2001.

I specialize in advanced hair cuts, hair colour, beauty & makeup, makeovers, and aroma therapy. I have trained extensively in hair & makeup with international brands like L'oreals, Mac, Make-up for Ever, Makeup Studio, Keune, Matrix, Schwarzkopf and Kryolan.

I get a high from working on portfolios, bridal make up and hair, fashion shows, cover pages for leading magazines, calendar shoots, advertisements & editorials and outdoor shoots.

Aaaaah! Just love it.

Thanks for visiting my website. Please leave a comment if you so wish. It would make my day.

God Bless & Cheers !!!

Hello Everyone :)

Well one of the best things of my wedding was the artistic touch of Blossom on me, the way she dolled me up was just fantastic, truly made me as stunning as ever and indeed one 'Fairy-tale Bride' that everyone admired.

So I would like to share my amazing experience with this kindest Lady - Blossom.

My first meeting with her was last April almost a year before my Big Day. Not being a Girl from Goa can be quite a challenge in organizing your day especially when it comes to choosing the right Make up Artist.

My prayers were answered the day I met blossom, referred by a common friend and having seen a few pictures of her work, I had a smile on my face thinking she might the Best one that I have been looking out for my wedding day.

After meeting her for the first time, I felt she has a lot of special qualities that makes her stand out so well from the rest in town.

She made this journey so smooth, no stress,no hassles, just a positive word from her every time I would text her to just stay calm and everything will go just right the way I wanted it to be.

Moving to my BIG DAY, I can't THANK LOVELY BLOSSOM ENOUGH for being so supportive and giving me the exact same look that I had been dreaming of without even a prior trial even. Her confidence and a friendly nature is another booster to her personality.

She is indeed such a lovely human being, with so much fun and laughter, tons and tons of positive vibes and warm support, definitely 'A STAR'. Her experience with the world stands out incredibly well when she starts working. I got to see that myself.

So all you Ladies out there who are planning your wedding day soon, if you want to get that perfect look with no stress, just a 'sit-back and enjoy the fun experience',Go ahead and book the GORGEOUS BLOSSOM who will add that special touch to you on your beautiful wedding Day - well in advance of course as her diary fills out in no time.

Thank you so much Blossom and the team of Tender Locks for your outstanding work in making my wedding day a cute fairy-tale for me.

Cheers and here's wishing you more luck and happiness in all that you do,

Tight Hugs from a New Friend,

They say every girl dreams of her wedding day and obviously wants to shine like a star on their big day!! I was no exception and had my wedding day all chalked out in my head ( demanding that I am),hence wedding day makeup plays an important part Of any brides day. Finding the right make up artist is therefore the key... And thank God for Blossom! From the minute I spoke to Blossom I knew she was the right lady to take charge of my face! ( by God she took charge of my face). She was an absolute pleasure to deal with! It was through her magical strokes that I transformed into this pretty bride. I think all her brides will agree with me if I say that she has truly been our fairy god mother! Both at my trial and the day of my wedding she made sure that she understood my needs and requests and also offered advice and recommendations on what shades and make up suit your skin type. She was a very calming presence on the morning of the wedding, which can be a stressful time for any bride! She did the make up and hair for my three bridesmaids, my sister as well as my own and had us all ready well in time. Blossom has not only mastered the art of makeup but literally owns it! Besides that she's a gem of a person and she's so much of fun to have around. It's obvious she takes pride in what she does and makes sure that she pays attention to each person she works with. She is not only an incredibly talented person but a very lovely person both inside and out!

Blossom and her team were fantastic! I had a huge bridal party. Hair and make up needed to be done for 8 people and Blossom managed to get all of us ready in time. She made each of us look like a princess and more importantly when she finished my hair and make up I felt like a princess! Thank you bloss and I hope you open up a salon in Toronto I would be there everyday! Lots of Love all the way from Canada.

Your website is great! So keep it up!


Sinduja Jeyakumaran | Tuesday, 12 August 2014 09:56 | London, UK

Hi, my name is Sinduja, coming from the UK and my husband from Sweden, when we decided to get married in Goa where we first met, I had no clue as to who to turn to for my bridal make up for my big day! We planned our wedding in Taj Exotica, Goa with the hope they may be able to recommend make-up artist for my bridal make-up. Unfortunately they were not offering that service at that point in time and I was left to my own device to find someone at such short notice with just days before the wedding. Through a friend’s recommendation I got introduced to Blossom very last minute. We never had a chance to meet for any pre-make up trials or colour tests. I just had to hope for the best and trust that Blossom will create magic! On the day of the Hindu wedding Blossom arrived at our villa, when I opened the door to Blossom she instantly sensed my nerves and how unsettled I looked with all the stress of pre-wedding and she gave me a BIG hug and said please take a deep breath and take a moment for yourself! Then she walked around the room and opened the patio where it overlooked our pool and said the most beautiful words to me... “take a look outside at this beautiful nature, whatever your faith is, take a moment to ask for guidance for this day to turn out as perfect as it could be”. I truly felt at this point that Blossom is a God sent and how she managed to shift my energy from being so stressed to very calm and grateful very quickly. Blossom’s makeover is magic I will come to that in detail in a bit but it has to be said, her unique and loving ways is JUST what every bride needs on their big day! I truly feel lucky for having Blossom walk in on my BIG day .

So coming to the bridal make up, we never met before and she hasn’t seen my Bridal outfit or my jewellery before to compare colours and so on. On top of it all, I was the first South Indian style bride she dressed without any prep beforehand. Now, only a master of all arts for whom, creativeness just flows regardless of the shape of the canvas. Only someone with wealth of experience can just adapt and create art like she did. Blossom was very quick to really listen to what it is that I was looking for and she delivered way above what I could imagine. She turned an ordinary girl in to a Hindu Bride so beautifully that I couldn’t even believe my own eyes. And it really has to be said, even my husband Henrik, when I walked the isle to the Mandap actually couldn’t recognise me. Henrik’s and his family’s own words were, “wow, you looked like a Goddess”. Long lasting Bridal make-up on your BIG day when emotions are flowing is so important and Blossom did everything to ensure she listened to what I was looking for and made me feel a million dollars! The make-up and hair-do lasted through second change of saree according to our Sri Lankan culture and tons of photo shoots in 33c heat where I remained looking fresh and colourful. Both of our Parents absolutely loved the make-up and hairstyle and you know how hard it is to please parents right?!

We had 2 weddings, one Hindu ceremony followed by Christian ceremony on the beach the following day. Of course Blossom was taking care of me for both. The Christian ceremony was more of a casual affair where I wanted the hair and make-up to be very casual yet effective. Also she was dressing my bridesmaids too this time. Again, Blossom’s attention to detail to what I was looking for and delivering above expectation was simply great. I clearly remember, she finished dressing me up and I had no mirror on the second day to look at whilst she is doing the hair and make-up so when she finished I went to the mirror to have a look for the first time and I screamed “Blossommmmmm!!!” and I think I managed to scare not only Blossom but also my bridesmaids in the villa too when I screamed but they didn’t know that I was screaming with joy that the hair and make-up looked so great that I couldn’t AGAIN believe my eyes!

Blossom I am so grateful for your touch on the 2 biggest days of my life where despite all the stress my husband’s exact words, “I made a stunning Bride”. Thanks to you Blossom we have beautiful photo memories which we will cherish forever.

God Bless you always! I just wish you can be accessible worldwide as I said before every Bride could do with Blossom on their BIG day not only because of her ability to create beauty beyond belief but also for the energy she brings in to the room! Your patience, love, kindness and calmness is priceless!
My heart-felt thanks to you Blossom.

Blossom, such an great person full of life and laughter :) one of the most passionate and dedicated people I have ever met. She is very professional, she gives her input in selecting the right look, at the same time lets her clients personality show tru her work, which is very important. Thank you soo much Blossom fr coming all the way to Mumbai to get me ready on my big day, and also fr making me laugh throughout, without your presence I don't think I could have been so calm I wish you all d happiness and luck, lots of love :) You are the best.

P.S. Anyone thinking of hiring blossom to do bridal makeup plz book at least a year or more in advance, coz this lady's diary is fully booked ;)


Marilyn Rodrigues | Sunday, 09 February 2014 16:56 | England

Blossom is the best ... I my self was so impressed when she did my bridal make up superb work... I never imagined myself to actually look so fab, she just made me feel over the moon. I was very worried about my scanty hair but Blossom just made me feel so confident n just transformed me into a beautiful bride... hubby was stunned :)
So I must say if it's your big day it has to be Blossom doing your bridal make up.


Jolene Braganza | Tuesday, 18 December 2012 05:53 | Betim

Blossom is a magician...I sit in front of the mirror, handover my unruly mess of hair to her expert hands and lo...a nice easy conversation later, with a snip-snip here and a snip-snip there she says, hmm ok..I think I like it, what do you think...I look into the mirror...WOW she's knocked off 5 years of age from my face easily. EVERY time I've had a haircut from her, I've got tons of compliments. Her passion for hair styling, hair coloring translates so fabulously on your locks, there's really no one else I go to whenever I need some tender hair care. Aptly named salon, friendly n highly skilled stylists - a MUST-GO place for all ladies desiring some artistic pampering!!


Swapna Pujari | Sunday, 05 August 2012 14:39 | #640, next VM Salgaoncar Law college, miramar, pan

Blossom is one hell of a passionate makeup artist I have known, have known her for a year now....
U can see her passion for make up when you work with her.. there are times i have blindly accepted projects just by hearing her name.. Because u know that at least ur face is in right hands :D
U don’t really have to tell her what u want.. tell her the theme she will create the magic for you..
She is fun on the sets yet professional.. she loves what she is doing that’s the best part!
She has worked with so many professionals now.. she is still down to earth and humble.. love her for that.. love her for the person that she is.. A true professional with a child like heart! :)
Thanx alot bloss for all ur guidance and making me look stunning in the pictures and wish u more and more success :D :) :) Loads of Love <3

A wise man once said…. “ some people want it to happen….some people wait for it to happen. But there are others that make it happen’….Blossom (or Bloss as I fondly call her) is undoubtedly one of those people who make it happen! I got to know her through a common friend…. I needed a haircut( having been unable to get it done at my favourite haunt in Bombay) and she came highly recommended!! She lived up to much higher expectations than the recommendation!! A simple(for her) but classy(for me) haircut paved the way for a friendship that has grown over the years…..
Having said that, it would only be appropriate to add that Bloss is very passionate about her work…. She rightly says that she gets a high out of seeing the smile on the faces of people she works on…because that’s exactly what she gets!!
We started off with my portfolio…. I had never posed before and ironic though it may sound I hated the camera. Make up played a minimal if not negligent role in my life and I was a complete liner-shadow-rouge-lipstick girl. I had no clue what make up could do to my face till I decided to do a portfolio….Bloss was doing my make up and Prasad Pankar was doing the shoot. Although I could sense his uncertainty about certain make up tricks that she wanted to try on me, both Prasad and I were flabbergasted with what emerged on the final pics when they came around.
I cannot thank her enough for all the time, patience and most importantly, make up training that she gave me in the days leading to the Mrs. India Pageant. She dropped her work to join me on shopping trips, advised me on color schemes for make up and actually trained me how to do it all up…..Her support through the Mrs. India Pageant is something I look back on with fond memories. Not only does Bloss know her job, she knows just how to play with what she knows and bend, twist (maybe even crush!) the base rules now and then to produce something that is spectacular!! This is evident in the transition that stands out in her styles and techniques… one of our fave pictures is part of this website. It was a big hit then and it still scores huge brownie points today! With new training and experiences, she has indeed crossed over to the next level …her make up style and technique in the glamour pictures in this website bear testimony to the passion and the drive that she puts into her work….
Bloss as a person does what she wants and speaks what she feels is right. She is what she is and there is no hidden face beneath her "I Dare To..." She will join you for a hearty laugh and shed a tear with you…. if you have Bloss as your friend, you are blessed coz she may not take your calls and may not even return them…but she is the kind of friend who’d be there for you when she’d rather be anywhere else. And if you have Bloss as your make up artiste/ hair stylist… then you are lucky coz you are probably gonna walk out of her salon not just feeling different but looking stunningly different!!

Bloss dear, here’s wishing you all the happiness of the universe…. Congratulations and tons of love!
