We’re not just a salon, we’re a movement
It’s a movement against the highly traditional & broken nail industry. While other salons count how many people are rushed through in an hour, we count how many memorable experiences we create each day.
Our team consists of highly-trained technicians and artists who are perfectionists. We know what beautiful nails look like, and more importantly, how they are done. Rather than saying ‘yes' to every client that walks in, our artists take the time to refine each fingernail canvas to perfection.
There is still a stigma around nail tech being a low-pay and low-skill job which isn't a career path. That's not how we see it. Nail technicians/artists are, in fact, highly-skilled and creative jobs that also take years of practice to perfect. It's a meaningful job where we can to inspire confidence and help people express themselves through gorgeous nails.
Having experienced first-hand the underpaying and overworking culture of migrant-owned businesses, we're determined to make it right (as migrants ourselves). At 1999 House of Nails, all technicians and artists are paid based on skill level and ability to deliver great services; regardless of their skin colour, cultural background or gender.
