Meet Michael and Tammy Nguyen
The creation and the creators
In 1996, Michael and Tammy worked in Tampa, Florida as nail technicians. Having finished college, they were successful and happy and enjoyed their craft. After marrying, Michael convinced Tammy to move to Tallahassee with the promise of staying for 5 years.
In 2000, Tammy and Michael opened a small nail salon called Nail Port Express inside Wal Mart. Nail Port was immediately successful, with the owners both working in their shop as nail technicians and running their business. The couple was able to turn their success into a series of additional small nail salons, but Tammy dreamed of more. Tammy had visited a full-service nail and day spa and was unimpressed, knowing she could improve upon both the service quality and the atmosphere. Once the idea was planted, Michael used his talent in design and construction to draw out a serene showplace, one that would provide an exceptional level of service to it’s clients, with hands on owners working side by side with their team of beauty professionals to ensure the quality and excellence the Nguyen’s were known for in their nail salons. Michael liked the name Millennium, and a Tallahassee staple in the beauty industry was born.
Having built a small but impressive reputation in their series of small nail salons, Tammy and Michael learned what set them apart from other business owners was their involvement on site in the day to day operation of their businesses. Building their team and working together, they were able to maintain quality control and build their client base as well as a tremendous following. Every new technician they brought onto the team was held to their standards of service, and guests took notice. Questions and concerns of guests could be addressed immediately, and there was a sense of “I know the owner” that resonated with people. Additionally, Michael’s title of “Mr. Fix-it” meant the business never suffered from technical issues, a great financial and logistical advantage. Tammy, as a marketing professional, became the face of Millennium,working to become extremely involved in the community and well known for her work with the Chamber of Commerce as well as the multitude of charitable organizations Millennium and the Nguyen’s support.
The personal commitment of Michael and Tammy to their team and guests is evident in the quality of service and the end product they provide. This dedication has allowed them to manage and develop the Millennium name into the premier Nail and Day Spa in the Greater Tallahassee area. It is through this commitment and dedication that the salon has been awarded Tallahassee Magazine’s “Best of” Award, as well as the the consumer voted Tally Awards, where they have been named “Best Day Spa” every year since it’s inception.
Building on the success of Millennium Nail & Day Spa on Kerry Forest Parkway, Tammy and Michael created Millennium at Midtown, 1817 Thomasville Road in conjunction with Whole Foods, Lululemon, and other like minded businesses in the plaza. Opening in January of 2014, Midtown quickly grew to the same success as their Northeast location, allowing for the expansion of their flagship location to a brand new facility in Bannerman Crossings in 2017. The beautiful new facility at the corner of Bannerman and Thomasville is oasis of serene of color and open space, welcoming guests from not only North Tallahassee but also South Georgia and beyond. Many a guest that have moved into larger metropolitan areas make it a point to visit Millennium when they are in the area for business, travel, or leisure!
In keeping with their goals of a superior level of service and ensure that clients receive the ultimate experience, Michael, Tammy and their team keep up with the very latest trainings and certifications in the industry.
