Tipsy Salon & Spa – Pamper Yourself
The original owner of Tipsy Salon & Spa Beth Nguyen is back, and Tipsy is better than ever! “You can get a drink and get multiple services done.” That’s one of the things that make Tipsy unique. “You can get your hair blown out, make-up done, hands manicured – all while having a drink,” says Beth Nguyen.
Tipsy, known for their hair department and ten pedicure stations, is a franchise, with other locations in Jupiter and Boynton Beach.
Another thing that makes Tipsy special is their commitment to medical grade cleanliness. “We autoclave all of our instruments,” explains Beth. With her whole family coming from the medical field, it’s an innovation that sterilizes all of their mani/pedi and other instruments. They also have liners for their ten pedicure foot baths.
“We have a friendly staff in a fun and upscale atmosphere,” says Beth. It’s a gorgeous spa, featuring a bar in the middle of the space. Services include:
With such a large space and a liquor license, Tipsy is the ideal place for baby showers, bridal showers, tennis teams, bridge clubs and other ladies’ groups in search of a good girls’ night out. They offer Botox parties once a month, offering Botox at $10 per unit, a price that cannot be beat. For larger parties, they recommend making the appointment about two weeks in advance.
You can take advantage of their weekly specials too. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, pedicures are $20. On Thursdays, it’s half off drinks. It’s $25 blow dry services for first-time clients. They also offer a free haircut with any color service for first-time clients. And 50% OFF massages (with a coupon, which you can find on our “AW Coupons” page). The most popular special is the $20 pedicure and the blow dry.
I got the chance to sample their signature drink, called the Lychee Momo (a lychee mimosa), made with lychees and prosecco. They also have wine, beer, champagne, mimosas and sake.
When it comes to their staff, Beth ensures that everyone speaks English well and she hires a diversity of people. “We have a very educated staff,” says Beth, “They have been schooled by cosmetic companies and hair care companies.” Many of their nail techs have worked at Tipsy, at Jupiter and Wellington, for as many as eight years.
Tipsy also offers an innovative nail service called “Dip It.” Some of the benefits of “Dip It” are…
At Tipsy, they are both educators and developers of this product, which is taking off in New York and other locations. It’s a dipping powder that extends the nails (like acrylics), but it’s non-damaging to your original nails.
Beth Nguyen enjoys her family time too and is the mother of a two-year-old and a four-month-old. Her brother Tuan is a hospitalist in Naples. Her sister Thuy is an orthodontist in Louisiana. And Beth just recently finished medical school and will be taking the med boards soon. She feels that their strong medical background helps make the salon a better, cleaner venue.
As the Wellington location is now re-opened under the original ownership, Beth is enjoying re-connecting with old clients. “I want everyone to know that we are back, bigger and better than ever!” So many clients have expressed their gratitude, finding that their favorite salon is back again.
So what are you waiting for? Stop by Tipsy Salon & Spa, located by Stonewood Tavern just outside of the Mall at Wellington Green, and pamper yourself!
