Today we’d like to introduce you to Holly Tran.
Hi Holly, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I immigrated from Vietnam and have gone through many hardships on my own. For most of my life, all of my money has gone to support my mother and my nine older siblings. When I gave birth to my second daughter, I knew that I needed to do something more in order to provide the best for my family. At first, I decided to open a nail salon with my friend and co-worker, Kim. As the eyelash extension market was starting to grow, we pivoted from specializing in nails to lashes and became one of the first places to provide eyelash extension services in San Diego.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
When my business was just starting out, my second daughter was only a few months old, and my oldest daughter was barely two years old. I had to leave my oldest at my sister’s and bring my youngest with me to the salon. It was incredibly difficult trying to balance being a mother while also working and being the owner of a new business. Over the years, it has been difficult trying to stay relevant as the eyelash extension market in San Diego has become more competitive.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Our salon specializes in eyelash extensions, facials, and waxing services. Our most popular service is our eyelash extensions, specifically our Classic Lash Set. We are efficient and offer a competitively low price for lashes with only a 60-75 min service time while also maintaining excellent quality. Most of our clients come to us because they are busy and cannot fit in 2 hours+ on lashes and because we provide a beautiful and an overall simply flawless look. Our Classic Lash Set is our most popular service because most of our clients want the look of lash extensions without it looking too heavy. We’re able to do this because we offer classic lash extensions, which is an individual lash extension adhered to one of your natural lashes.
Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
I have learned to become more patient as this time has been harsh on everyone. Doing customer service in the beauty industry has never been easy, and the pandemic certainly did not make it any easier. However, I have become more patient with those around me and try not to take things too harshly on myself. I enjoy what I do and want my passion to be evident in the services that Poshe’ Salon provides.
