Welcome back, O! After a WDAS FM contest ranked Koco Nail & Wax salon nationally by fan votes, the Steve Harvey Morning Show flew owner Onisha Claire (and her dad) to Vegas for the star-studded “Neighborhood Awards,” recognizing local businesses that contribute to the community.
Congratulations, East Falls business owner Onisha Claire and Koco Nail & Wax Salon, nominated (for the third time) by local fans for Steve Harvey’s “Neighborhood Awards,” celebrating men & women from all over the US who uplift their neighborhoods thru their contributions and excellence as entrepreneurs, community leaders, educators, and more.
“We had an amazing time!” O told us, “The ‘Best Nail’ category is so dynamic, and #teamkoco is honored to be among the best in the country. Vegas was a great way to prime for the DNC — we had a huge rush of visitors and celebrity clients.”
O’s already looking forward to next year. Since the Neighborhood Awards are based entirely on customer votes, Onisha’s chances of winning increase as her business grows. This Fall, she’s expanding to her 2nd location: Koco Brow Bar in University City.
A bright, cozy space near the Twin Bridges, Koco Salon has been a local favorite since opening in 2010, earning raves on Yelp, Instagram, and nail blogs around the city. Read our EFL review or book online now at KocoNails.com.
Way to go,#teamkoco! We’re proud to support local business, and also personally thrilled for a super-cool chick who works so hard and deserves every bit of success. Follow Koco for more pics and video from the show, and of O & her dad’s Vegas adventure.
PSST: that’s Nehemiah Davis, with her — a West Philadelphian whose eponymous foundation fosters local business and charitable neighborhood initiatives (and fellow Neighborhood Awards nominee, who also won this year).
