The Nail Boutique Salon staff consists of qualified and certified individuals. Below are a few of the smiling faces you will see at our salon and day spa.
From salon client to co-owner, Cindy joined forces with Sonia to open the full-service salon that Nail Boutique is today in 2009. Cindy’s no stranger to business ownership, however, as she has a former life in retail business management throughout the Carolinas. She also brings her flair for interior design and passion for fashion into every square inch of the salon. When she’s not helping where she can on the salon floor, Cindy is helping out the community through Wigs for Cancer, Relay for Life, and as a volunteer for Backpack Buddies.
