Founded in 1984, we opened and operated the very first Modern Nails salon in Studio City, California, where we served the local community and celebrities such as Janet Jackson, Brooke Shields, Heather Locklear, Paula Abdul and many more. In 1996, during a visit to the East Coast, our founder was captivated by the culture, diversity, beauty and charms of Washington D.C., and decided to open a Modern Nails salon here in D.C. Through dedication and excellent service, the community embraced us and our salons quickly expanded. Today Modern Nails is permanently based here in the D.C. Metropolitan area. Our salons are located in major shopping centers to include Tysons Corners, Pentagon City Mall and Ballston Common Mall.
With over three decades of experience, we’ve mastered the arts and trades of the nails industry and have emerged as a leader in the business. Our high‐quality service, relaxing atmosphere, and highly skilled technicians are what make us the number one nail salon in the DMV – in fact, Modern Nails was voted the best salon in the Washington Metropolitan area by the Washingtonian. Presently, we are thrilled to bring the very first Modern Nail Bar to the Clarendon/Courthouse community. So if you are looking for a little relaxation and pampering, contact us today to experience Modern Nail Bar for yourself
