HappyNails

Following the Fall of Saigon, Mai and Henry Huynh emigrated from Vietnam with the dream of building a new life for themselves in the United States of America. Settling in sunny Southern California, the Huynhs were ready for a fresh start but unsure of where to begin. Henry eventually secured employment with a leading aerospace and defense technology company, while Mai found work as a manicurist and studied the dynamics of the burgeoning nail industry.
The couple worked hard in their respective fields, saving every penny with the dual goals of starting a family and building a business.In 1983, Mai and Henry introduced the public to their first nail salon. Located in Newport Beach on the legendary Pacific Coast Highway, the salon was aptly named “Happy Nails & Spa.” The following year, they welcomed their first child into the world.

The philosophy behind their salon was simple: quality services, reasonable prices, and an upscale environment equate “happy nails.” Adherence to this concept has become the driving force behind the growth of Happy Nails & Spa.
