Get to know the "Hands behind Manos", the proudly Pinay women whose spirit, warmth, and care despite their humble beginnings distinguish them in the beauty industry.

As told by Felice Caringal, founder of Manos Nail Lounge

Manos Nail Lounge is a social enterprise is known for its tropical-inspired "modern Filipino" interiors and use of Filipino products, but what makes Manos truly Filipino is the spirit of the people that make the Manos experience complete.

The Ladies of Manos have become known for their warmth, genuine hospitality, and extraordinary care. While not all of them started out in the beauty industry (past jobs include: balut vendor, street sweeper, factory worker, and sales person), they all persevered and worked hard towards learning and enhancing their craft. They take pride in their work and are most satisfied when they are able to help clients by making them feel relaxed, pampered, and beautiful.

Outside the workplace, the Ladies of Manos remain committed to their roles as mother, daughter, sister, neighbor, and friend. They say that among their greatest joys are being able to provide for their families and working towards a better future for them. And like true heroines, some of the Ladies still find time to volunteer and take leadership roles in their respective communities.

No matter what part of the country they come from - Bicol, Leyte, Negros, Zamboanga, Bukidnon, Manila - each of them is beautiful and inspiring. We would like to honor the Ladies of Manos for exemplifying the characteristics of a true PINAY - armed with a passion for excellence and devotion to those entrusted to their care. :)

Manos emphasizes that "We are Filipino first, and it is our hope that through small innovative ways, we make a difference one pair of "manos" (hands) at a time." Here are two women of Manos Nail spa who truly inspire us:
