  1. She did nails for a living, my wife and friends would often have nail parties and hired Chung. Such a nice woman, had several children 🙁

  2. She(Tammy) was a vibrant, charismatic lady. Also very generous and down to earth . She owned the previous Polish salon as well, also a well loved salon in Walnut Creek. Lavender Dreams is my favorite salon , her employees are like a reflection of her. Walnut Creek will sure miss you Tammy.
