Think Big, Dream Big,


and the Results Will Be Big


Raised on a steady diet of poverty and abuse, no one could have expected Shivarama Bhandary—the man behind the famous Shiva’s chain of salons in Mumbai—to go on to become a celebrated hairstylist in the glitzy world of Bollywood. Styling at the Top traces Shiva’s truly amazing life journey... from the rigours and perils of his early years that shaped him, to this day when ‘Shiva’s’ is a brand name to reckon with.


At once heart-warming and full of grit, this is a deeply inspiring tale that deserves telling, one that will reach out across audiences with the sheer moving force of its story. With scrupulous honesty, it tells us about how Shiva etched his way from a tiny makeshift barber shop when he first came to Bombay, to now running a chain of twenty salons, with the bespoke Shiva’s Signature Salon, located in swish Malabar Hill, and the Juhu-Lokhandwala outlets in Mumbai, drawing maximum elite and celebrity clientele.


Styling at the Top is a testament to the power of hard work and positivity, and proof that where you start doesn’t determine the heights you can reach.
