Combined with 15 years of financial and global business management experience and incredible knowledge of the beauty industry, Krishan Jhalani, Co-Founder and CEO, knew that there was a need for a luxury hair extension company that could reach global success.
After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Economic Policy from Colby College and a Masters of Public Policy from the Ford School at the University of Michigan, Jhalani was a Senior Manager at an organization selling health products in over 70 countries. He managed the Southern Africa portfolio from Washington, D.C. and was responsible for sales and marketing for 5 Southern African countries.
Jhalani has successfully managed profitable businesses in the U.S., France, India, and South Africa, and has worked in a corporate capacity in Delhi, Berlin, and Harare.
Directing Indique from its corporate headquarters and overseas in India, Jhalani focuses primarily in product sourcing and development, complex international supply chain management, financial management, and both domestic and international sales channels.
Jhalani’s 15 years in the hair and beauty industry and international knowledge in business management along with his passion for beauty, created a remarkable partnership with Ericka Dotson for the founding of Indique Hair.
Krishan Jhalani currently resides in India with his wife and two wonderful children.
Ericka Dotson, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Indique Hair is the first African American woman to retail and brand premium hair globally. She was inspired by her clients to fill the void in the hair extension industry with a premium, knowledgeable, and customer-oriented business.
Dotson, a Howard University alumna, set her initial career path towards a traditional office profession. While working in the tech industry in Austin, Texas, she rekindled her love of hairstyling and began to sharpen her skills in hair extensions. Dotson began specializing in this growing sector of the hair industry and worked heavily with women experiencing hair loss.
Her time as a stylist led her down many creative paths. Dotson has had a great deal of experience in creating hair pieces and designing different looks. Her innovative style has been sought after in numerous fashion shoots and runways.
Ultimately, it was the frustration Dotson’s clients expressed when purchasing hair extensions that sparked the idea of creating a company. Her drive and passion for ensuring the highest quality hair for her clients morphed into Dotson’s partnership with Krishan Jhalani and the founding of Indique Hair.
Dotson is the creative force of Indique Hair. She spearheads the innovative pieces in all the collections and branding. Ericka has received recognition and countless press features in numerous media outlets such as Ebony Magazine, Centric TV, and South Africa’s Destiny Magazine as a leader in her industry. With her vision and experience, Indique is focused on providing exclusively premium virgin hair extensions. Dotson strives to maintain that Indique’s quality assurance steps are comprehensive and exhaustive, while continuing to improve and find additional methods to maintain or increase quality and service.
Ericka Dotson currently resides in Austin, Texas and has an amazing daughter, Skye, who is a professional hair stylist.
