All Seasons Nails opens in Nevada
Husband and wife team Dao Tuan and Luu Dang recently opened All Seasons Nails at 1316 Sixth St. in Nevada.
Their second business, the couple previously operated a salon in Des Moines before deciding to relocate their family to Nevada.
The salon specializes in a variety of manicures and pedicures, plus facial waxing.
Dao Tuan said his wife has 14 years of experience doing nails, while he has been doing them for about six or seven.
Because of COVID-19, customers and staff are required to wear masks at the salon. Sanitizing and cleaning of equipment and supplies has been increased.
The salon offers the couple the chance to work together every day, which Dao Tuan said is a perk of the job.
Manicures include the classic, shellac, and shellac only varieties. Pedicures offered are the basic, combo basic, hot oil, honey, deluxe, all-season and special all-season. Nails can be: dipped full set, with dipping powder, French tip, acrylic, full set, fills or fills with shellac. Nail repair is also offered. Waxing options include eyebrows, lip, combo or whole face.
Services are customized based on the customers’ needs. Higher-priced manicures and pedicures offer more pampering features. For example, a deluxe pedicure consists of an aromatic mud mask, special organic wash, hot towel and hot stone massage.
“Men come in to do pedicures, not just women," he said. "And sometimes we put nail polish on them. It’s whatever they want."
The pair, who are originally from Vietnam, came to Iowa to be closer to relatives. They both attended cosmetology school in Des Moines. But, Dao Tuan said, coursework only teaches you so much about the nail care field.
“School is where you get the license; they don’t teach everything,” he said. “You have to learn from the job.”
Making sure the customer loves the outcome of the service is the couple’s main objective.
“You work until they’re happy (with the results),” he said.
While the salon is equipped to handle bridal parties and groups for other special occasions, Dao Tuan said COVID-19 has caused a dip in these sales.
“I’ve been doing it a long time,” Luu Dang said. “I like to make people happy and pretty and then they come back.”
The salon also sells masks for adults and kids.
Walk-ins are welcome. Appointments can be made by calling the salon or by booking online. The salon may be reached at 515-988-1156 and email@example.com. Visit the salon on Facebook and at www.allseasonsnails1979.com.
It is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed Mondays.
