After leaving her homeland of Vietnam nearly 30 years ago, Binh became a hair designer to support her three daughters. By 2006, she had secured the talent and the capital to open Binh's Place—a Paul Mitchell Focus salon where beauty professionals spiff up coifs and soothe the body. At the wash house, stylists nourish manes with shampoos and conditioners that exude essences of lavender and peppermint. Stylists repaint locks at the color bar, adding streaks of color with partial foils or camouflaging gray with oak leaves. In a cozy, private room, Binh's Place's resident massage therapists practice seven different modalities that suit various therapeutic needs. Nail and waxing technicians also do their part to enhance natural beauty, using precise techniques and professional products.
