A full service salon that includes manicures, pedicures, hair styling, and a blow dry bar is now open in downtown Colorado Springs.
The Beauty Bar at26 N. Tejon St. is owned by 30-year-old Uyen Le, who also owns Helen’s Nail Salon at Constitution Avenue and North Powers Blvd. She opened her salon Tuesday.
Le immigrated to the U.S. from Vietnam with her parents when she was seven. She said the opening of her new salon is another example that America continues to be the country where people can come and be successful and live out their dreams, as long as they work hard.
“We think we have problems with our government, but look how much worse it is in Egypt,” she said. “This is still the land of opportunity.”
