We’re thrilled to welcome you to The TEN, Detroit’s first modern nail bar! Our journey

began in  our Freshman college dorm at Spelman College. Throughout our years of studying

and hard work we formed a strong friendship. We both graduated  and went on to work in

major metropolitan cities – New York and Chicago- and were fortunate to build a wealth of

business experience.  After years in New York and Chicago  respectively, we decided it was

time to return home and launch a business that would  address an unmet need.  We saw a

need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a  fun social space for Detroit’s

residents and professionals. How could we not  have a place in Downtown Detroit for  manis,

pedis, and champagne?  Don’t we deserve it Detroit?  We designed the TEN to provide you with

a #Perfect10 experience. We are no average nail salon. We want you to relax, enjoy music,

a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much needed break from all  of your

hectic work days. YOU deserve it.  We can’t wait to grow with you. We both would like to invite

you to visit us anytime at the TEN!

We’re thrilled to welcome you to The TEN,

Detroit’s first modern nail bar!

Our journey began in  our Freshman

college dorm at  Spelman College.

Throughout our years of studying

and hard work we formed a strong

friendship. We both graduated

and went on to work in major

metropolitan cities – New York

and Chicago- and were fortunate

to build a wealth of business

experience.  After years

in New York and Chicago

respectively, we decided it was

time to return home and

launch a business that would

address an  unmet  need.

We saw a need for  a quality,

modern nail bar that

could also serve as a  fun

social space  for Detroit’s

residents and professionals.

How could we not  have a

place in Downtow Detroit

for  manis, pedis, and

champagne? Don’t we deserve

it  Detroit?  We designed the

TEN to provide  you with a

Perfect10 experience.

We are no average nail salon.

We want you to relax, enjoy

music, a drink, your friends,

a clean and precise manicure,

and a much needed break from

all  of your hectic work days.

YOU deserve it.  We can’t wait

to grow with you. We both

would like to invite you to

visit us anytime

at the TEN!
