Nails & Tips By Laila London Serves The Bronx Community
By: Nails & Tips by Laila London
"Our mission is to create a business that is family oriented and welcoming to both sexes, male and female," says Alize. "For example, we provide transportation for those who live within a one-mile radius of the business if one makes a deposit of 15% towards the cost of receiving a manicure or pedicure."
Alize's journey in serving the community and its people started during his youth, beginning with his work within the New York City Housing Authority. He credits those years with the NYC municipality as well as his tenure within the recording industry (he worked with hip-hop legend KRS-ONE as well as served as an executive for Arista Records) for helping him establish the salon. "When I launched the salon, I resourced the skills I developed on the business side of the recording/music industry by utilizing the relationships I have with folks in music, sports, film and television to help get the word out through their social media platforms."
Nails & Tips by Laila London offers a variety of manicures and pedicures as well nail enhancements – all with high standards one can find in more expensive salons but affordable for the community they serve. "The goal is to provide the nearby community with access to services that would only be granted to those more fortunate," says Alize. "As a Black-owned business, it's our goal to understand the plight of those in the surrounding community and provide a quality service our customers do deserve."
With much of the nation still reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic and its after-affects, Nails & Tips by Laila London came ready with what Is required now to be in the cosmetology business. "We are up to date in regards to the standard safety requirements mandated by the New York State Department of Health & Human Services in regards to COVID-19 restrictions. All stations within the salon are glass-partitioned and within six feet of each other to maintain social distancing. We have temperature monitors set up for both clients and employees. Disinfectants and PPE are well stocked and used regularly. We sanitize the areas constantly."
Alize looks ahead to a great future with Nails & Tips by Laila London. "The best feeling I have with the beauty salon is being able to offer a service to the consumer. We're giving back to the community that has given much to help our business."
