New nail salon opens in Bayberry Plaza
As soon as customers enter Brand Nails in Liverpool, a quiet atmosphere catered to luxury nail salon services welcomes them. A row of 10 pedicure stations lines the right-hand wall with recliner-sized massage chairs.
On the other side, there are eight manicure stations adorned with small flowerpots. There are also four rooms for various salon services such as waxing.
The salon held its grand opening Friday Jan. 22 at its Bayberry Plaza location, 7608 Oswego Road, Liverpool.
Brand Nails' owners, Brandon and Jessica Park, recently moved from New Jersey to open their business in Liverpool.
Brandon said he and his family travel a lot throughout the state, and "fell in love with the area."
"There is fresh air here," Brandon said, which is a big difference from the New York City area. "The people here are polite and kind."
The owners thought Liverpool would be a great area to open their first nail salon business, the Parks said.
Even though the business is new, Jessica has been certified as a nail technician for about 20 years. She said she started to have a greater interest in nail service over the past few years and wanted to turn it into a business. Brand Nails currently employs eight people who are skilled in nail, wax and other salon services.
The Parks decided on the name, Brand Nails, with two forms of inspiration. Part of Brandon's name is worked into the business name, but the word "brand" also means "luxury," in the Korean language.
The salon would then have a "unique" setting as it would be delivering "luxury" scale services to its clientele.
Such services include manicures for $12, French tip permanent nails starting at $50, spa pedicures for $45, eyebrow waxing for $8, and other combo packages such as a manicure-pedicure for $50. Full lists of all available services are located at the front desk of the salon.
Brandon said he encourages people to take advantage of the group discount Brand Nails offers. A 10 percent discount will be given to groups of 10 or more people receiving services during the same time. He said this is a good opportunity when there are bridal parties, birthday parties, or a group that might be attending a formal dance together.
Advance appointments for groups should be made ahead of time by calling 622-2880.
The salon is open seven days a week; from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Sundays.
