Young Nails, INC.

Updated: Dec 23, 2018

Earlier this month my friends and I had the honor to attend the official PR event of Young Nails, Inc. celebrate the launch of their upcoming partnership with Ulta. Personally, I did not know anything about Young Nails, but my friends did. I was able to experience their story and get to know the brand first hand. I have to say, they have an amazing and down to earth team!


Young Nails was created by two brothers, Greg and Habib Salo. They started the company in support of their mother, Young Salo, who started her own nail business at the age of 49. Young Nails became a family business and they did everything they could to support their mother.

Greg and Habib never thought they would end up in the nail industry. Greg originally was training to be a fire fighter but put his energy into developing the best professional nail care products and education. A few years later Habib changed his path from medical school and music to put his knowledge of business, marketing, and strategy to work. The two formed the perfect team!

Today, Young Nails, Inc. is in over 40 countries and in over 3000 stores in the United States. They have a mission to bring the best quality products and education for the best results!


The Young Nails, Inc. event was held in a Penthouse Suite in a Hollywood Hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by Greg, Habib and the team. We immediately felt so welcome. We were served champagne and hor d’oeuvres while others were getting their nails done or socializing on the balcony overlooking the Sunset strip.

We were able to interact with the nail techs and learn first hand about each product that they offer. We had such a great time that we were the last to leave, after the event had ended. Greg and Habib took their time to get to know us and we were able to hear their story. It was so inspiring to see how much they love what they do and where they came from.

Before we left we made sure to get a photo with them and some of us even had a little dance off before we left for the night. As we walked out the door we were gifted with so many goodies and we can’t wait to start doing nail art at home!

Keep a look out for Young Nails, INC. in Ulta stores early 2018! Congrats Greg and Habib!!
