Last fall, Vicky Pham sold her nail salon businesses and planned to move out of state. Instead, she opted to stay local and recently opened Greyhound Nails in Clay Terrace.
Finding the right location was easy, Pham said.
“It is right in the middle of all my clients from past years,” she said. “And, hey who wouldn’t want to be pampered prior to or after a little day out shopping?”
Located between Whole Foods and Sprint, Pham said her goal is to “provide a clean, professional, friendly and enjoyable environment for all of our pampered guests.”
“We offer a variety of services, including kid’s nails, artificial nails, manicures and pedicures, facials, body exfoliating, waxing, eye tint and massage treatments,” Pham said. “Greyhound Nails also offers spa services for both nursing homes and in-home private parties.”
Pham chose the salon’s name to fit the local community.
“I landed on the name Greyhound Nails from the location and the high school mascot and to help represent Carmel,” she said.
Greyhound Nails employs four full-time and two part-time staff members who have a combined experience of more than 60 years.
The salon had its grand opening May 23.
“When I opened my other four stores I didn’t have a big bow to cut like I did here, which made it fun,” Pham said. “We had people and friends who came in and out all day long. The free Vietnamese food disappeared quickly as well. It was a long day, but God kept the rain away, thankfully.”
