My name is Thi Tran-Kelley and I am the owner of Bellerose Salon. I was born in Vietnam and at the age of 16, I immigrated to the United States to start a new life. At the age of 18, I received a call from my uncle, who needed help with his new salon business. I was excited for the opportunity and immediately flew to New York to help him out.
After 4 months, I moved back to San Jose to continue my career in the beauty industry. In 2005, I had the craziest idea to open my own salon. It was a nerve wracking move at such a young age but it was the best thing I have ever done!
As a small business owner one of my favorite things to do is make my clients feel fabulous, increase their confidence and help with their self-esteem. For the past 17 years, I'm living my dream! I love what I created at Bellerose Salon, I started as a small nail salon and over the years have continuously educated myself and have grown the business to what we are today.
"This was my first taste of what would eventually become my passion."
