TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOU?
My name is Trinity Hoang and I am 30 years old. I moved to the States at 15 years old. After high school, I attended Cal State Northridge University and graduated with a degree in marketing. Soon after college, I moved to Charlotte, North Carolina
After visiting Charlotte a few times, I noticed a void in the beauty industry that wasn’t recognized. That’s when I decided to bring a new nail boutique concept to introduce into the market. In 2012, Cachet Nail Boutique was born. Our first location was opened in South End and after 3 years of success, we decided to expand into our flagship location in the South
Park area. Not only did Cachet Nail Boutique grow in square footage, but also became the first nail boutique in North Carolina with an ABC License to serve alcohol and to offer our clients the full experience they deserve.
CACHET Nail Boutique is dedicated to providing the ultimate nail and beauty experience, delivered in an upscale and comfortable environment and, above all else, we are committed to the health and well-being of our clients and team members. We focus on providing impeccable, uncompromising customer service for our clients, and keeping artistry and innovation of style and beauty first in mind.
My passions extend past the beauty industry and into general aesthetics surpassing the physical exterior. With an eye for interior design and a love for real estate, I partnered with Nilou Henderson in 2018 to launch a new company, Stage Of Designs, with the goal of helping turn our client’s vision into reality and creating the home of their dreams.
DURING YOUR TIME VOLUNTEERING FOR A COMMUNITY ACTIVITY OR PROJECT, WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT?
During my time volunteering for a community activity, the most memorable moment was when I got to run with the kids and the parents that I mentored. Just seeing a big smile on their faces and knowing that they are very happy to let someone in their life to mentor them in hopes of 0.
IN YOUR OPINION, HOW DO YOU CONTRIBUTE TO THE COMMUNITY? PLEASE BE AS DETAILED AS YOU CAN.
My contribution to the community of Charlotte involves with Running Work. RunningWorks uses sport to empower individuals and families to break cycles of abuse, abandonment; neglect, poverty and homelessness one stride at a time by creating a safe haven for more than 150 men, women, and children served weekly: a team and family where they can learn to trust.
I am contributing to the program by mentoring the youth and helping to raise money to end homelessness in the area.
As often as I can, on Sundays, I volunteer at my local monastery to prepare meals for the monks and volunteers. This allows me to make an impact in my community while practicing my religion.

CAN YOUR SHARE ONE THING THAT IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
I would love to stay at the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. Jukkasjärvi is a tiny town 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. The walls, fixtures, and fittings of this temporary hotel are made entirely of ice, which has to be rebuilt every winter.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU USED YOUR PASSPORT?
About one month ago, I traveled to Tulum, Mexico. I enjoyed the native people and culture so much that I decided to extend my trip so that I could explore even more! Very soon I will be traveling to Europe to vacation with family.

I am an introvert, as well as an extrovert; I speak 2 different languages, and have a lovely niece that I love to spend time with! I don’t yet have children of my own but until then I have her to give me lots of practice and even more love!
WHO IS YOUR HERO?
My late Fiancé, Khanh, helped turned my dreams into reality; which resulted in opening Cachet Nail Boutique. Without his help and guidance, Cachet Nail Boutique would have never opened. He was and still is the driving force behind me pursuing my dreams and aspirations. I hope that my continuous hard word and dedication will live up to the plans we shared for our future and I can continue to make him proud.
