“[I] got a simple white tip set. I have bigger nail beds on the thumbs and always had an issue getting tips that fit. Well, they had the exact size I needed. I have a feeling that they would have great tip options for acrylic toenails. Overall, [it was] a good experience…they do offer more options, like gel power and polish as well as ombre, which I have heard they do a great job with! [I] also ran into a lady [I work with] there. We both went on lunch. She’s been a customer for years and highly recommends the place” -Kellie S.

Of course, we were particularly interested in finding out what Doan considers to be his business’ secret to success.

People love our clean and inviting atmosphere. We have a lot of experience and knowledge,” he said.

Building Success Through Word Of Mouth

“Choose a location with a lot of traffic. Focus on delivering superb service, which will translate to great word of mouth”

“I’ve been going to Eastern Spa & Nails for about five months now, and I will never go to another nail salon in Albuquerque after my experience here. I get acrylics with gel polish, and they turn out beautiful every time. The employees truly care about the health and strength of your nails, and make sure you love how your nails look when you walk out the door. They are very reasonably priced, and the staff is so kind and accommodating. Love this place!” – Sydney A.

Not Your Average Nail Salon

At Eastern Spa & Nails, customers enjoy the added benefit of fresh, specialty-made products that are custom-formulated; you’ll never find stale or old products on the shelves.

That’s because Thao Pham, the owner of Eastern Spa & Nails, has great relationships with vendors and gets the newest products before any other salon in the state. With this unique arrangement, vendors automatically ship Eastern Spa & Nails the latest products, no questions asked. Both the vendors and the customers at Eastern Spa & Nails love it!

Thao knows that his customers are looking for a clean, organized facility that looks good, friendly service (e.g. bottles of water for everyone in the party and a large, higher-end collection of products to choose from, and he’s set out to offer them a studio that meets their expectations.

Thao has worked for other salons in the past and was unhappy with the fact that they would skimp on their products, offering low-end products that might damage their customers’ nails. He also saw that many of them were just in it to make profits.

He started Eastern Spa & Nails because he wanted to be part of a salon where customers are valued and the staff always does the right thing for them.

Building Success by Soliciting Feedback

Thao credits Eastern Spa & Nails’ strong online reputation to the fact that they actively solicit feedback from their customers. They even have a sign hanging up that reads, “We value your feedback.” The team at Eastern Spa & Nails always wants to know how they can do better for their customers.

We asked Thao what advice he has for the many other business owners out there looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are the words of wisdom he shared with us:

“There is no secret — just provide what you think is best. Put yourself in the customer’s situation, and think, ‘We are all humans. I like the best, so the customer will like the best.’ If you don’t like it, the customer probably won’t either.”


Congratulations to the team at Eastern Spa & Nails for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Thao, for taking the time to speak with us!

We asked Karen why they do what they do at Nailuxe Boutique and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what she had to say:

“Quality of service in the industry has really lacked over the last several years. More and more salons take shortcuts or don’t use quality products on their clients. It’s important to us to save face for the industry and to create an environment and an experience our clients really enjoy.”

Building Success Through Outstanding Service

Karen credits Nailuxe Boutique strong online reputation to their commitment to delivering outstanding service and quality with every client they help. They take the time to develop personal connections with their clients, and they ensure that each one is 100-percent satisfied before they leave.

“I hate to make this public, because finding a great hair cut is akin to searching for buried treasure. When you find a great person like [her], part of you wants to shout from rooftops proclaiming a star is born. The other part of you wants to keep completely silent, keeping her all to yourself. So against [my] better judgment, cat’s out of the bag. She is terrific. Just enjoy!”

“Great little local salon. All the girls are great and Jodi, the owner, takes good care of her salon, clients, and people that work with her. A business that definitely supports it’s local community.

“Best place ever! The employees are extremely friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is really laid back and relaxing. The prices are really affordable too, and you will always be satisfied with the end result of whatever you are having done! I will never go to another salon again for services! I really recommend this salon to everyone!”

Not Your Average Hair and Nail Salon

Jodi attributes the business’ success online to word of mouth. She’s been in the small town of Molalla her entire life and has been in business since 2000. Because of that, she and her staff have built up a fiercely loyal customer base.

This is Jodi’s advice to other business owners:

My hands feel amazing after a manicure, which is important because I teach piano for a living! On top of that, her designs and nail art are so cute and unique. My students come to their lessons eager to see what my nails will look like next.” -Phoebe G.

“This is a very professional salon where every person there is committed to a quality product and a quality finish. Highly recommended.” -Lyn L.

The Nail Niche’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Deanna Westover, the owner of The Nail Niche, took a bit of time to chat with us about her business’ spectacular online reputation.

First things first, we wanted to know what Deanna believed to be her business’ secret to online success. She said, “We don’t do walk-ins. We’re basically referral-only, so we want customers that have seen our work or know us personally that want to come to our salon. So, I don’t really advertise for just anybody, I want people to want to come and have our work done on them.”

She credits much of their success to repeat business from happy clients, saying “The clients know what they’re going to get. They’re coming in every two weeks. We know them, they know us, the clients know each other. It’s really a good pleasant atmosphere.”

Making the World a Better Place By Making Clients Happy

Deanna and her team spend every day making people feel beautiful. “I love making people happy and that’s a great job,” she said. “I’m happy that I’ve got that job.”

According to Deanna (and quite a few of The Nail Niche’s online reviewers), what sets them apart from other nail salons in the area is that “We do outstanding work. We use the highest quality of nail products. Our sanitation is over the top and we have a very fun and friendly atmosphere.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Deanna! Congratulations to the team at The Nail Niche for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

For gorgeous nails in Oregon, we highly recommend The Nail Niche.

Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa has earned dozens of online reviews with an average rating of 4.98 stars, an impressive Rating Score™ of 95.76 and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being ranked number one out of all of the nail salons in Arizona!

“The most talented and professional nail tech in Arizona. What you need can be created. The owner is truly gifted. Experiencing this nail spa is a must. You wont be disappointed. I have been coming for nine years, and I still get amazed by my nail art.”

Not Your Average Nail Salon

Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa is a nail salon that dares to be different.

Nikhia, the owner of Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa, believes that you should always be yourself, that everyone quests for something and that everyone is different. That’s why she has set out to make Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa a different kind of nail salon.

One of the main things that sets Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa apart from other nail salons is that Nikhia doesn’t use stencils. This allows her to create unique nail art that’s designed specifically for the individual, not just the cookie-cutter designs that customers can get at any nail salon.

We asked Nikhia why she does what she does. Here’s what she had to say:

“I was in school for engineering in order to make money. Nails became my outlet, taking me away from the stresses of everyday life. Everyone has an outlet — or a quest — and if I can help them find their quest through nails, I will.”

Building Success Through Making Connections

Nikhia doesn’t have to ask her clients for reviews. Instead, she just does what she loves to do, which is to connect with people and create stunning nail art.

In addition to a solid online reputation, this simple yet powerful approach to business has helped Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa earn the majority of their business through word of mouth and referrals. Believe it or not, Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa hasn’t had to do much advertising at all to become the number one nail studio in Arizona. Nikhia’s hard work speaks for itself.

We asked Nikhia what advice she has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s what she had to say:

“As long as what you’re doing is positive and helps people solve problems, give yourself permission to be different.”
