Celebrity manicurist Lisa Logan was honored at Essence Magazine’s first annual “Best in Black Beauty Awards” in May. The lifestyle publication for African-American women created the awards to honor beauty innovators who are influencing what’s now and next. Logan’s many career highlights include applying custom Minx to Beyoncé for her performance at the presidential inauguration, being named “Best Manicurist” in Star Magazine’s Beauty Awards issue, and designing her own “Minx Professional for Lisa Logan” collection last year. She also created the distinctive nail fashion for Italian Vogue’s March 2012 cover feature photographed by Steven Meisel. Logan recently opened her own salon in Harlem, “The Nail Suite by Lisa Logan,” where she will continue to offer her clients the newest and best in nail fashion.
