Welcome to Zazen!!

West Chester's #1 Salon that Specializes in Nails, Lash Extensions, 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, PA.

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 three thousand Lash Extension appointments over the years as well over 900 Microblading Clients that travel up to 3 hours to come see us. 

In addition, I also teach beauty professionals how to learn Eyelash Extensions with Lash Classes and Microblading Classes .  We have had over 90 sold out classes.

Hope to see you at Zazen! :-)
