Meet the owner

At this point, Sylvia’s Nail Care Centre is an Oshawa institution. Serving customers since the ’80s, it is considered the longest-running nail shop in the Durham region. Sylvia's is the brainchild of Sylvia German, a former hairdresser who struck out on her own to open a nail care centre. Her shop provides a sense of community that only a business that has been around for this long can offer.

“I really admire my mother,”  says Caroline Alcook, Sylvia’s daughter and coworker since the late ’80s. “She built something up on her own and created a place that’s wonderful and welcoming.” The results of Sylvia’s hard work are immediately apparent: despite retiring in 2010, Sylvia still comes in regularly, and employees and customers alike get excited to see her. “We call her our greeter,” Caroline says with a laugh. “Everyone gets so excited when she comes in. Many of our customers have been getting their nails done here since we opened, so they all know her.”

    So warm and friendly! They take their work very seriously and are so kind and personable! Had my nails done by Sarah and they came out better than I could have asked for, my manicure came out so natural and my pedicure came out so vibrant!! Flawless and shiny! They go to great lengths to follow health board laws and everything is so sanitary and clean! I was sent home with the buffers they used on me! Come if you want gorgeous nails friendly service and sanitary equipment all for a great price!

    Sylvia's is Professional, Courteous, well known Canadian Owned business in the Durham Region for over 25 yrs. I have been to a number of Nail Salons in the Durham Region and by far I have recommend Sylvia's to all my family and friends and will continue to do so. I just had a new fill and chrome nails completed yesterday. I have already been complimented 4 times! Excellent Job Caroline!
