Hair and Nail Salons: Creative, Resilient, Customer-Focused

The Governor’s Working Washington Small Business Emergency Grants distributed nearly $10 million to small businesses statewide. HV Nails was one of four businesses in Burien that received a grant from the Washington State Department of Commerce program.

HV Nails used those funds to make changes for the safety of their employees and customers, and the nail salon looks very different today than it did pre-pandemic. Compact nail stations surrounded by plexiglass are safely distanced throughout the salon to provide both manicure and pedicure services. The owner, Hai, says she has many new customers because they learn of the protective measures her business is taking from Instagram posts that her regular customers have shared. By prioritizing safety, HV Nails reassured their customers, which is key to successfully operating in a pandemic.
