The beauty industry has been in steady growth for a decade. Many budding entrepreneurs are exploring the beauty industry and one of the most popular sectors is nail salons. Nail salons have been around for years; many of them have outdated storefronts. A lot of them, in other words, need renovations, but not many know how to handle these specialized projects in a niche market. Beauty salon projects and nail salon projects might be similar, but require significantly different floor plans and furnishing. Many builders are not aware of this, and thus: finding the right contractor for updating your nail boutique is often quite difficult.

We’ve tracked down a few contractors who are experts in remodeling and constructing nail salons. These companies were chosen for their beauty and nail salon portfolios. Some of these contractors list nail salons as a central part of their expertise. Some of the other factors considered for choosing these contractors were their commercial portfolio, their area of expertise, and other relevant accomplishments. Nail Salon projects were highlighted so readers could get a better grasp of the contractor’s capabilities.

If you are thinking about building a nail salon, we recommend checking each builder’s license with the local licensing board, speaking to past clients, and using our bidding system to get competitive quotes from at least 3 contractors. Getting multiple bids is the best way to ensure you get a fair price and that bids include the complete scope of work.

Millennium Construction

12101 Florida Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA 70815

Many residents in the Gulf Coast lost their homes after Hurricane Katrina struck. Unfortunately, some contractors took advantage of these residents and charged unreasonable rates and provided mediocre handiwork. Christian Albert was outraged by these contractors and it inspired him to establish his own construction firm to help families rebuild their homes. Thirteen years later, Millenium Construction is known all over the Louisiana Gulf Coast for having a team of trained professionals who are very hands-on with all of the firm’s projects. The firm’s services are not limited to general construction: the firm provides reconstruction, flood restoration, and roofing repair and replacement.

Millennium Construction’s works are found all over Baton Rouge. The firm has a long list of clients from the private and public sectors. Many of its clients have come back to the firm for more work on additional projects. One of these clients is Queen Nails. Millennium Construction constructed the salon’s two branches in Mississippi. The firm first worked on the Biloxi branch and gave it a Mediterranean-inspired design. The warm hues of the beige columns and maroon furnishing provide a relaxing atmosphere for the clients.
