Savio Pereira
Author: Francesca Mascarenhas
Savio My Saviour!

I hope that all you guys have gone through atleast one 'Bad Haircut' in your lives 'coz only then will you appreciate my friend Savio!

Now excuse me while I reminisce a little...In 1998 just before Christmas I went for what I thought was just another haircut, you know to the 'salon round the corner'. Little did I know I'd be going home in tears. But enough about me and my childhood traumas.... My sister's wedding was a year later and oh boy was i glad that Savio was her old High School friend.

As he did her hair for her special day, I remember looking longingly, wishing my locks were longer and prettier. (You know sister of the bride should be able to bag atleast a few proposals.) I was ecstatic when Savio finished my hair, a little cut gave it a little shape and that torturous look i sported for that entire year just slid of my newly straightened hair.

Well that was my first most memorable encounter with Sav that i just couldn't resist sharing it with you. I've known him for about 6 years, though he probably remembers me in my diapers but thats not something I'm going to throw any light on! The most carefree, fun loving individual I know with an attitude so contagious you can't help but smile. His genuinity complements his credibility and its because of his hardwork that today he is the proud owner of his own Salon MAGIC which he runs with his partner Apeni.

He tied the knot in 1999 and has 2 kids Denise and Jaden with his lovely wife Priya. Family man is just another one of his irresistable qualities. Sorry girls this one's taken!
