Disillusioned with the quality of nail salons, Samira Far decided to open her own concept called Bellacures promising cleanliness and style. Using a franchise model in the hopes of building a nationwide chain, Far now has a network of seven salons in California. The concept will soon venture to Texas, with a salon scheduled to open in Dallas in June and three additional locations to follow in the Dallas market.
Far, who founded Bellacures eight years ago, plans to expand the concept nationwide with 20 new units over the next 18 months in Texas, Northern California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois and New Mexico. Her goal is to have 100 locations within five years.
