Mai Nguyen has always had a dream of owning her own beauty salon, which she has now turned into a reality, opening Chill Nails and Beauty Salon in the CBD.
After moving to the region over nine years ago, Mai said she can never see herself leaving.
She had always planned on opening a salon in town and was just waiting for the right moment to arise.
“This is my dream job and I have always wanted to be a beautician and wake up every day and love what I do,” Mai said.
After six months of looking for a space, the transformation of the shop on Bourbong Street began, taking two months to complete.
“I love Barbie and so the shop has been decorated like it would be if it was from a Barbie scene with all the pink colouring,” she said.
“There are still some areas we are continuing to work on to bring them to life which will be completed shortly.”
Mai said Bourbong Street was the perfect location to open the business, being right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city.
“It is very fun being in the main street with people always walking past and up and down the street,” she said.
The range of services available at Chill Nails and Beauty include:
- Nail Art
- Nail extensions
- Spray Tans
- Lash Extensions
- Lash Lifts
Mai has three staff working with her and is currently looking for more staff members to join her team.
The salon is located at at 124 Bourbong street and is currently open 8 am – 5 pm and you can make an appointment by calling the team on 4151 2272 or emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find the salon on Facebook for more information.
