Nail Technician

Bedford, PA


Nail Technician, Sculptured Nails, Gel Nails, and Custom Design Acrylics.


I graduated from Bedford High School and Bedford County Technical Center in 2009. In the fall of 2009, I attended Pruonto’s Hair Design Institute to complete my cosmetology hours. I joined the Tame Your Mane team as an assistant in May of 2010. I have been given a lot of opportunities to increase my knowledge and hands-on experience through the participation of in-salon educational classes. I’ve attended numerous hair shows in Orlando, New York City, and Baltimore. They are such a great way to get inspired and see what is new in both hair and nails. In October of 2011, I attended the Young Nails Institute in California where I received my certification in Sculptured Gel Nails. During my time there, I gained many new skills to help me succeed in my profession. I am always trying to gain more knowledge and skills to help improve my craft.

What inspires me most about the nail industry is that it is dynamic and always changing. I browse the Internet and visit sites, like Pinterest, to stay up-to-date on the latest trends. The most fulfilling part of my job is seeing my clientele’s reaction to my art. So if you’re looking for something new, creative, and fun, check me out on Instagram (@Kuincy09) to see what’s new at Tame Your Mane.

Outside of the salon, I enjoy spending time with friends, family and my rag doll kitties Thor and Remi. I enjoy shopping, going to the movies, traveling, watching my shows, and cheering for the best team: the New England Patriots.
