Savvy Nail Salons: The Nail & Skin Bar
With a low-key vibe and high-energy employees, The Nail & Skin Bar has remained a favorite among Memphis, Tennessee residents for years. In the heart of the city’s funky, eclectic Midtown area, the salon—part lounge, part beautification hotspot—stands out as a business that offers girly fun while still maintaining an impressive male clientele.
Located in a historic building built in 1912, the business recently celebrated its six-year anniversary, but had little time to celebrate. “We had our anniversary on October 6, but we were so busy working, we forgot to do anything to commemorate it!” laughs Joslyn Jackson, manicurist and esthetician. It’s no surprise the salon stays so busy; with a focus on fun, a serious passion for high-quality services and a commitment to uplifting the industry, we predict it will continue to go strong for years to come.
