A SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS SALON
We are a lifestyle nail salon that offers manicure, pedicure and foot massage services, drinks and snacks, as well as fair trade retail all housed under one roof. Enjoy our complete suite of offerings in a luxuriously intimate setting, including a personal iPad pre-loaded with movies, games, books and podcasts; drinks and snacks; as well as a complimentary glass of wine on Fridays and Saturdays.
Most of the products we will use, sell or serve in our salon are non-toxic, eco-friendly, fair-trade and/or cruelty-free. Our number one priority is the health of our customers and employees.
We proudly use Zoya & Coat Nail Lacquers and AngelPro & Jacqueline Burchell gel polishes - all salon quality polishes that are formaldehyde, DBP, toluene and camphor free and are safe for use on children and expectant moms.
We are Singapore's first socially-conscious salon that was established with the aim of providing vocational training and employment to local marginalised women with a higher barrier to employment, so as to help them progress from a position of vulnerability to security and self-sufficiency. Our social model sees the vocational trainings offered run as a business, so hands-on experience is gained by trainees whilst a portion of profits from the salon go to sustaining the social support and services offered to them. This fosters sustainability in the organization and eliminates donor dependency.
