What used to be a beauty supply store has been transformed into a beauty salon.
Located in the shopping center near the Safeway on El Camino Real in Menlo Park, the salon has a bright and clean atmosphere.
The salon's owner, Ngoc Nguyen, had rented space in the back of the beauty supply store, where she offered clients eyelash extensions, facials and waxing.
When the beauty supply store went out of business and the space went up for sale, Ms. Nguyen decided to start her own business and leased the spot.
She is from Vietnam, and worked in the beauty industry before moving in 2011 to the U.S., where she attended beauty school and received a license to be a certified aesthetician. She lives in Milpitas.
In the Menlo Park salon, she installed six leather pedicure chairs and a nail bar, which lets friends sit together while they get their nails done. There is a separate room with three stations for haircut, color and styling services.
In the back of the salon, there are two private rooms where waxing, facials, makeup, eyebrow and eyelash treatments are done. Currently, there are three hairdressers, four manicurists and two aestheticians working at the salon.
Lyna's Beauty Salon is located at 515 El Camino Real, Suite #160, in the Safeway shopping center in Menlo Park. The salon is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
