We can now add getting “Pretty With Pink” to the list of fun things to do at Sylvan | Thirty! Pink Pedi, an eco-friendly, fume- and toxin-free nail salon, is expected to open its doors next to Tacodeli and Whisk Crêpes Café this fall.

At Pink Pedi you won’t find the pungent fumes commonly found in nail salons. Instead, Pink Pedi will maintain the integrity of green and health-conscious services in a fume- and toxin-free environment.

With plans to adorn the walls of the 700-square foot space with exposed wood and greenery, Pink Pedi aims to create a cozy, relaxed atmosphere where customers can receive regular and gel manicures and pedicures, eyebrow waxing, dipping powder nail enhancements and custom nail art. Pink Pedi will exclusively carry the nail polish line Zoya, which is free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibuthyl phthlate, toluene, camphor and other cancer-causing chemicals commonly found in nail polish.

”Our goal is to go beyond the typical nail salon and offer a unique, memorable experience by providing quality services that are safe for both our customers and our employees,” said co-owner and former fashion designer Lucy Dang. “The modern yet family-oriented vibe found at Sylvan | Thirty makes it an ideal location to begin our new family business.”

No strangers to entrepreneurial success, Dang recently retired her scissors and pins to open Pink Pedi with her husband, award-winning fashion photographer Brandon Lyon. Shortly after her debut in the fashion industry, Dang was named the 2013 Texas Next Top Designer and her brand Lucy Dang Dallas was recognized as the “Best Fashion Label” by Dallas Observer. Both Dang and Lyon have been awarded the 2015 Fashion Group International of Dallas “Rising Star” awards for fashion and photography, respectively.

While her focus has shifted from dresses, Dang will bring her passion for design to Pink Pedi with a series of homemade lotions, potions and sugar scrubs containing therapeutic essential oils. With different flavors created every month, the all-natural, organic products will be available only at Pink Pedi.
