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 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!
