Welcome to Zazen!!
West Chester's #1 Salon that Specializes in Nails, Lash Extensions/Training, and Microblading.
I’m so excited you found us and wanted to share our story with you.
My name is Tien Nguyen Balan and I’m the co-owner of Zazen Nail Spa and Zazen Beauty in West Chester.
I’m married to my Husband, Chris, and a mother of 2 beautiful boys - Kai and Theo.
I left my corporate Job at CBS News in Philly many years ago to start Zazen because I was tired of smelling all those toxic fumes in traditional salons.
I wanted to offer something more healthier, safer for moms and kids, and just better overall in customer service.
I'm obsessed with making people feel beautiful and my expertise/speciality is in Eyelash Extensions and Microblading Eyebrows.
I've done over two thousand Lash Extension appointments over the years as well over 850 Microblading Clients that travel up to 2 hours to come see us.
In addition, I also teach beauty professionals how to learn Eyelash Extensions with Lash Classes . We have had over 80 sold out classes and hold classes monthly.
Hope to see you at Zazen! :-)
