To get the shots for our March cover we headed to Panipa Hair, Beauty, Nails & Wellness in Ekamai Soi 19 to meet up with founder and owner Panipa Pavanarit and her daughter Praredaa Limpanonda, who is taking on her mother’s legacy. This is a special year for both ladies as they celebrate the 50th anniversary of the family’s beauty salon business, which operates nine outlets around the country.

The local beauty industry pioneer and her daughter are on hand to greet us and look radiant and ready to go. They have been getting ready since early morning, their hair and make-up professionally done by their own team at the salon. The space itself has a certain uniqueness and charm but the profusion of mirrors and shiny surfaces present a challenge for our photographer and so after an hour or two we moved on to the neighbouring Less Is More furniture showroom for a change of scene.

Insider: On Sundays Panipa loves to get together with her group of friends to enjoy singing and dancing

The showroom has a soft, warm, plush feel to it and soon our two ladies are making themselves comfortable on beautiful pieces of Scandinavian furniture. Relaxed and full of fun, they engage in the creative process with enthusiasm and we soon have a good selection of images reflecting the styles and tastes of the elegant pair.
