Nail Technician

Detroit Blows is a one-stop, non-toxic finishing salon that features express blowouts, beauty services, and champions the vibrant arts and culture scene in downtown Detroit. Our beauty services include fast-track nail care, make-up application, lash applications and eyebrow shaping services for the client that is on the go.

For our express nail care services, we will use non-toxic professional, long lasting products that are free of toluene, dibutyl phthalate, xylene, and formaldehyde. Our services do not include shellac, or acrylics; extension tips; airbrushing; or semi-permanent polish offerings.

Our salon includes an impact-driven retail shop that will house a rotating line-up of socially conscious brands, from home goods to hair care products.

Even better, $1 of every blowout service and a percentage of the retail footprint will support Detroit-based female entrepreneurs, and women entering and re-entering the workforce. Rooted in a commitment to female empowerment and entrepreneurship, a visit to Detroit Blows goes way beyond the blowout.
