Shakti Beauty School

After her first visit to India, Mari Cruz Morales had a vision of bringing her knowledge of hair styling to train young impoverished women in India.  After several years of running hair styling workshops when she visited, she realized the need for an established location to offer ongoing training.

The Shakti Beauty School was founded in 2018.  Since its opening, the School has served as a place where women can gather to receive training in hair styling, henna design, manicure/pedicure, threading, and cosmetic application and design.  The goal is that through learning these skills, students will be able to find work to support themselves.
