Ziba Beauty

Ziba Beauty's first business was located on 186th and Pioneer in Artesia. Today, Ziba Beauty currently has thirteen studios in Los Angeles and one in the Bay Area serving 60,000 customers a month.

Kundan Sabarwal founded Ziba Beauty in 1985. Her daughter, Sumita Batra, carries on eastern beauty traditions as well as the family business as CEO. Through Ziba Beauty, Sumita Batra's and Kundan Sabarwal's curiosity and passion for authentic eastern beauty traditions, introduced the Art of Threading™ to the United States 30 years ago.

Like her mother, Sumita's sense of community is strong, and one of her passion projects as been Senhoa, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to combating human trafficking through long-lasting partnerships. Sumita has donated office space for Senhoa to operate in California, and a percentage of proceeds from retail sales go to support the organization. Two years ago, she traveled to Cambodia to support the organization in their efforts and meet the affected women.

Sumita lives in Artesia with her husband of 27 years and their three children, Maya, Kavan and Hansa. The family is a longtime supporter of the Distinguished Young Women program and still actively involved in the community. Their "Pioneer" spirit captures the essence of the Pride of the 58th!
