The Art of Brides
Oscar for Ziba Beauty
Oscar is the Lead Artistic Director for Ziba Beauty, and heads Ziba Beauty Bridal. A licensed hairstylist, he started his career at MAC Cosmetics where he worked as a Senior Beauty Consultant for 10 years before meeting Sumita Batra – CEO of Ziba Beauty. Impressed not only with his expertise, but also with his love for all things Indian & South Asian, Sumita brought Oscar into the Ziba Beauty family in 2001, where he started work as a makeup artist and hairstylist, rotating between our studios every three months. As Ziba Beauty expanded its services and studios and Sumita founded the Bridal Department, Oscar started styling brides, and has styled nearly 800 brides over the last 15 years. As word of his talent spread, he was brought in to style brides from all cultures, and has now worked with Chinese, Japanese, Persian, Greek and Vietnamese brides, just to name a few. Some of his more high-profile clients include Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, former Miss India pageant winners, and Teri Hatcher. He has also been featured on ABC and NBC for his work.
Message from Sumita Batra – CEO Ziba Beauty:
“I started the Bridal Division at Ziba Beauty when we opened our doors in 1988 as the lead makeup artist and stylist. I was always passionate about the Indian/ South Asian Bride, and loved all the different traditions I had grown up with. After 15 years of styling brides from all over the world, I brought Oscar under my wing to help me carry this division forward. Oscar came to us with over 10 years experience as a senior MAC artist and as a licensed hairdresser from Mexico. He had a passion for the South Asian Bride that matched mine and together, we styled hundreds of brides. Today, Oscar is the lead Artistic Director for Ziba Beauty and I trust him implicitly with our Bridal Department. He is booked 6 months to a year in advance and creates simply stunning brides every year. He is fun, creative, and knows all the intricate details involved with getting the best out of each bride that he works with. My advice to a bride that gets an open and available date to book Oscar – don’t think twice. He is the best!”
