When I met Jessica Lynn at Pure Sole Nails, she was in the thick of end-of-the-year holiday appointments, but I would guess Valentine’s Day appointments will keep her busy too. Jessica moved into the space at 684 South Avenue in October and based on the raves on Yelp, has created a warm, welcoming and safe place for manicures and pedicures.
Jessica decided to open her own business because she wanted a safer environment for her clients, future clients and herself. Her salon and treatments are non-toxic, vegan and eco-friendly. As for opening in the South Wedge, she said “I wanted to be a part of a community that cared about the environment and lived a nontoxic lifestyle – I thought the South Wedge was the perfect place.”
Jessica has been doing nails for 11 years and before opening her salon, attended MCC. She grew up between Irondequoit and Pittsford, and has lived in the South Wedge for a year. In her spare time, she loves to shop, but since opening the salon, hasn’t taken any days off. The pay-off she said is that, “I get to call it my own. At the end of each day it is mine.”
Jessica is welcoming, the shop is attractive, and the place smells nice! Her motto is Peace. Love. Pure Nails.
