More Vietnamese Immigrants Drawn To Nail Salon Business

One of research interests is entrepreneurship and self-employment among Asian Americans. In that context, as New American Media reports, one example that has increasingly become prominent in recent years is the dominance of Vietnamese Americans in the nail salon business: These days, [nail salons are] a main source of living for the Vietnamese American community. Drummey, publisher of VietSalon, a bi-monthly magazine, says that nearly 45 percent of the nail salons in the United States employ Vietnamese technicians or are Vietnamese owned. . . . And with that growth has come advancement. Men, for one, are entering the field in huge numbers. And as Vietnamese Americans are becoming more entrenched in the industry, they are investing more funds and technique in their daily work, upgrading their salons with top-of-the-line equipment and first-rate artistry. The article also mentions that apparently, there are now even international competitions on nail art (the intricate designs that are painted onto fingernails). Unfortunately, the article does not mention any challenges that Vietnamese experience in either opening up or operating their nail salons (such as dealing with increasingly stringent health regulations, toxic fumes from the chemicals used, and competition from other Vietnamese salons), nor any issues related to interacting with their clientele that inevitably arise (ie, how customers might get annoyed if employees talk among themselves in Vietnamese rather than

    to allow for vietnamese refugees to come. The bulk of you swamp gooks arriving is in the 80′s. East asians come here as immigrants and they need to have 3 business sponsors to put up a bond (lots of money) even though their united states relatives are like their siblings, mother , or father. You swamp

    Doing nails is a job. It is easy and brings money.

    Crackers are shameless in displaying their animosity over issues that they themselves created. Wait, correction: they are merely tools for the rich crackers who conditions them to possess mentalities that are inadequate in regards to the intellect and the logical. These crackers rely on their masters to inform them to actualize ideas that are not theirs. (Western imperialism causes Vietnamese to leave VN into a “racist” space where they are forced to fit into the model minority paradigm)

    If they have a chance to become a Doctor, Lawyer or Engineer, do you people think that they would want to be in Nail Salon Business? It’s called “Sacrificing for the Children Future”
    What wrong with Doing Nails? It’s a Legal Business! At least we dont go around selling drugs or murdering people for money!
    The USA Law makers should do something about the unhealthy Chemicals in the Salon ;(
    Those that hate us because of jealousy! We Viet found a good way to make good money & u didn’t!
