The Nail Bar, which is the brainchild of co-owners Cathy Campbell and Melissa Harrison, recently celebrated its second year of operation on Oct. 8 of this year.
Campbell and Harrison worked together at a nail salon, and in 2013, they went into business for themselves. Though The Nail Bar has not been open for very long, it has already established itself as a prolific Jackson business.
"We had a lady whose nails we did until she reached the age of 100," Campbell says. "That was quite a milestone. She would come in and get her pedicure and, when she'd get through, she'd get up and do the pedicure dance. She was holding on to that walker, and she'd just dance. She was fabulous."
Campbell says that she and Harrison strive to make clients feel as if The Nail Bar is a place in which they can feel comfortable and at home. "We genuinely just love each other," Campbell says, "so it's not like going to work each day. It's more like going and being with friends."
The Nail Bar offers services such as manicures and pedicures, acrylic and gel nails, massage therapy and cosmetology. For more information, find the business on Facebook. —Adria Walker
