Hey everyone, my name is Stephanie Huck. I was born and raised in Laurel, MT. In 2013 I decided to take the jump and attend The Nail Institute to make my dream of doing nails a career. I’ve always had a passion for nails and making others feel beautiful about themselves. I love doing free hand nail art , as well as a classic set of Pink and Whites, and let’s not forget about my relaxing spa pedicures ! When I’m not at the salon, you can find me outdoors, being your typical boy mom to my two sweet boys. Part of my job I love the most is creating great connections with amazing people, while still having the flexibility to be a mom and wife.
