Meet our Founder

East London born to Vietnamese parents, Thanh established Dream Nails in 2006 setting up her first salon in Loughton. Thanh grew up surrounded by all things nails with her family heavily involved in the nail industry (her father a leading nail product wholesaler and her mother establishing one of the first New York style nail bars in Shoreditch).

Thanh trained in a leading London nail and beauty college and proceeded to gain valuable experience at a high end London nail and beauty salon business before making her dream of owning her own nail salon a reality.

Thanh wanted to blend the best of Vietnam with the best of British. The Vietnamese are widely regarded as having an acute attention to detail and providing no-nonsense high quality nail treatments. However, they tend to fall down on the level of client service – something Thanh wanted to change. Thanh wanted to deliver a high quality service with an enjoyable experience for all Dream Nails customers whilst delivering the latest in nail and beauty trends. Blending highly experienced and skilled staff with exceptional client service is the continuing ethos of Dream Nails today.
