A nail salon “to revolutionize the industry” is scheduled to open in Charlotte, NC.
Mimosas Nail Bar will open to offer clean, world-class nail salon services in a fun and inviting atmosphere.
Mimosas Nail Bar will have its grand opening in Charlotte, North Carolina this October 12th and invites the community to join for the opening weekend event. We are excited to be working with Dress For Success Charlotte. We want everyone to bring in clothing, shoes, or accessories to help women get into the workforce and, in turn, receive a free manicure gift card!
“We decided to open Mimosas Nail Bar to fix the problems with the nail salon industry,” owner Trang Tran explained. “When walking into a typical neighborhood salon, you are greeted with overwhelming smells of acrylics, long waits, fluorescent lighting, and questionable hygiene that completely undermines the experience. I thought to myself, there has to be a better way.” We are committed to our client’s health and protecting the earth. We demonstrate this by offering a safe environment and by using eco-friendly, non-toxic, cruelty-free products. Utilizing practices from the medical and dental industry, we saw a clear opportunity to provide nail services that encompass an elevated, honest, and non-toxic experience throughout every facet of nail care, waxing, and lashes.
Tran emigrated from a country where it is incredibly difficult for a woman to succeed in business. Therefore, she relishes in the opportunity to create a unique nail boutique and wants to challenge the industry to bring premiere services to her customers. Just as Uber, Starbucks, and Amazon have changed expectations in their sectors, Ms. Tran believes Mimosas Nail Bar will do the same in the nail salon industry.
Mimosas Nail Bar plans to revolutionize the industry by focusing on four key pillars: simplicity, excellence, fun, and philanthropy. Through these four key ideas, the salon believes it can offer an enhanced nail salon experience to its customers and the city of Charlotte.
At Mimosas Nail Bar, customers will be able to easily book their appointments in under 30 seconds on the app or website. When they arrive there will be no waiting. However, they will find a fresh signature drink waiting for them. After customers enjoy a luxurious salon experience, they will walk out without pulling out their wallets, because their account will be charged automatically.
Dedicated to quality and integrity, Mimosas Nail Bar promises its customers only the best. Highly trained nail technicians will offer top-notch service and results, and Mimosas Nail Bar prides itself on using vegan and cruelty-free polishes and supplies.
The environment at Mimosas Nail Bar is unlike any other. In addition to the deluxe salon chairs and bar seating, charging stations will be available for your laptop or phone. The complimentary drinks will compare to high-end wine bars and coffee shops. Numerous monitors will display social media feeds and live television. Lastly, customers will be able to show off their newly painted nails in the fun Mimosas Nail Bar immersive art areas.
Not only does Mimosas Nail Bar want to leave a mark on the beauty industry, but it hopes to improve the lives of women in Charlotte by donating money each month to multiple Charlotte women’s foundations. When women invest in their beauty and well-being at Mimosas Nail Bar, they will also be contributing to the wellness of others in Charlotte.
“Our goal is to truly change the industry for the better and give back to the community that has given us a chance for freedom and the ability to follow our dreams,” Ms. Tran said.
At Mimosas Nail Bar, clients can expect to have their expectations exceeded at every visit.

Help get the word out for our charity drive for ‘Dress For Success Charlotte’!
For our grand opening weekend, we are offering a free manicure gift card for every piece of clothing that is donated to help women get into the workforce!
“The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.”
A little about the owner:
Hi, I’m Trang Tran, owner of Mimosas Nail Bar. I’m a first-generation immigrant to the U.S. that’s finishing up my doctorate in dentistry at UNC Chapel Hill while starting my dream business, a Nail Bar here in Charlotte. Where I was from; no matter how hard I would work you just can’t get ahead due to the economy and the gender-bias, which is why I want to give back to the community that has given me a chance at freedom.
I want to give back to the community and empower women in a number of ways.
First, I’m thrilled to launch our business and leadership development program, because I’m striving to create a nail salon that empowers women on both sides of the manicure bar.
For my employees, I not only want to provide a fun and healthy environment to work but also a place for them to learn and grow within our organization. I’m hoping I can empower our staff to be able to follow their dreams and not settle—in an organization where anything is possible—because I want our nail designers, receptionist, and managers to become owners and have a stake in our organization.
Second, Mimosas has plans to donate to charities on a monthly basis. I have found through my time in serving underserved communities in North Carolina and recently from a month long service trip to Uganda, that there are few things more rewarding in life than seeing someone smile. At Mimosas Nail Bar, we will be donating a $100 service for a raffle each month, in which all proceeds from the raffle and from our dollar for dollar match will go to a different local women’s charity.
Third, Mimosas differentiates ourselves from traditional nail salons by offering a membership model that enables our clients to gift their unused manicures to local women’s shelters.
And lastly, during our grand opening weekend we are excited to be working with Dress For Success Charlotte. We want everyone to bring in clothing, shoes, or accessories to help women get into the workforce and, in turn, receive a free manicure gift card!
Growing up in a 3rd world country was difficult, but when I look back on those struggles, I realize that those are the things that made me who I am today. Supporting women in my business to become leaders and supporting women in the community is my way of saying thank you to Charlotte for giving me my freedom and the ability to follow my dreams.
