#ELLEBeautyWeekender: Q/A With Shalini Samuel
Hair goals and more
At the ELLE Beauty Weekender presented by Tata CliQ, we are celebrating all things beauty with Shalini Samuel. She started five years ago using her passion for hair and beauty to build her social media presence. Her hairstyling tips and easy out-of-the-kitchen solutions for skin woes were immediate hits. Join us in a rapid-fire round with her.
ELLE: What does beauty mean to you personally?
Shalini Samuel (SS): Beauty to me is self-love. The intention of grooming yourself (not to perfection) is to be a better version of yourself and enhance what you already have.
ELLE: Could you give us one hair care hack that was a game-changer for your hair?
SS: I switched from using a conditioner to a mask every time I shampooed my hair. My dry coloured ends needed that extra rich nourishment, and the hair mask really helped with that.
ELLE: A hair product you don’t leave home without?
SS: Dry shampoo! It’s such a multipurpose product.
ELLE: If Ryan Gosling came over to you right now, what would you say to him?
SS: Take me as your personal hairstylist.
ELLE: What was the last beauty treatment you had?
SS: A salicylic peel.
