I’m Tina, or Thuan Huynh. I began my career in the beauty world in 2009 after training as a manicurist in my home town of Ba Ria in the south of Vietnam. Later that year, I moved to the United States and continued working in nails spas in New England and California. After becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the rushed and impersonal nature of many larger nails spas, I decided to open my first business in 2015 in Keene, New Hampshire. My ambition was to offer clients a more personalized, relaxing nails experience by focusing on individualized attention and remaining small. The success of my business afforded me the opportunity to travel to Serbia to be trained in the art of permanent makeup tattooing by the world-renowned PhiBrows, subsequently becoming the first permanent makeup artist certified in the state of New Hampshire. By 2019 the harsh New Hampshire winters were taking their toll. I finally decided to relocate myself and two children to the relatively milder climate of coastal Connecticut where I found the opportunity to open Tina Perma-Beauty Spa here on Main Street in Old Saybrook. When I’m not working at my business, you will probably find me cooking, eating or traveling with my kids, or tearing up the pickleball court, the sport I love.
