Presently doing business as K & K Perfection, nail technicians Kristina Huynh and Kris Huynh have grown out of their present salon on Hill Street and within the next couple of months will expand their talents into a brand new business - this time, located at Charles Pointe.
Expected to open in May is "Perfections" specialized nail services.
"We'll have pretty much the same services and add some new services," Kristina said. "We'll be able to serve more people in a more convenient location with more parking."
The new salon will be located right next to Sweet Frog in the Commons 1 building, also occupied by Bridgeport Family Pharmacy and Mia Margherita, among other businesses.
With 14 and 17 years under their belts respectively, Kristina Huynh and Kris Huynh – no relation – have accumulated a repertoire of intricate free-hand designs.
"We can do any kind of design that is out there. You name it, we will draw it," Kristina said. "A lot of people bring in pictures from Pinterest and ask us to do it. We do some that you won't find anywhere else."
Joining them in recent months, Tiana Phan will partner with Kris and Kristina in the new venture.
The technicians utilize the OPI nail polish line in an array of colors and shades. Currently popular are the cool spring hues and designs.
"And we have tons of glitter we can add to the nails," she said.
Kris and Kristina keep up with the hottest nail trends.
"A lot of people love the pink and white acrylic nails and the gel lacquer which is like a shellac manicure," Kristina said. "That doesn't chip off and lasts for two weeks. It's very popular right now."
Before opening K & K Perfection, Kris and Kristina were both most employed at a nail service at Meadowbrook Mall. That is where they met. However, both are originally from Vietnam, grew up and attended school in California. The have operated out of Hair Trends since October 2014.
"Perfections" will also feature massage, facial and waxing services, S&S Healthy Nails and a come-back of the airbrush nails, Kristina said.
At the new business, the women will also extend their hours of operation with doors open from 9 a.m. through about 7 p.m.
The new location is ideal, Kristina said.
