For this month’s On the Road, I decided to pop a new salon that recently opened right down the street from the NAILS office.
At Atir- a Natural Nail Care Clinic, nails do not have to be long to be beautiful. Owner Rita Gregory opened the first all-natural nail salon 16 years ago to fill a void she saw in the nail care industry. Today the franchise is strong in 14 states offering consumers a unique four-step treatment for keeping their natural nails healthy.
I think superstars are people like Shari Finger, who has been running a nails-only salon for 17 years and has probably trained a few hundred nail technicians during that same amount of time.
