MEDFORD, Ore. – A local nail salon owner is in the international spotlight in her trade. It’s the “sparkle” that Allie Banry adds to her nails which has landed her a spot in an international magazine.
That hard work doesn’t only happen inside Banry’s downtown Medford salon. While teaching tricks of the nail trade around the world, and competing internationally, Banry has made a name for herself with Nails Magazine featuring her as the number one competitor in 2011-2012 worldwide. Banry spent last year traveling for competitions, getting medals for her innovative ideas in several different categories.
Just as Banry is receiving recognition, she is preparing for another competition. She is headed to London this weekend for the 2012 “Nailympics.”
