Story of Dream Salon and Spa

Dream Salon & Spa Owner ~ Sein Cozad

“Just keep going Sein, dream big!”


These are the words that would play on repetitively for Sein on her journey to acquire her own salon and fulfill the American dream.

Sein owns a multiple award-winning salon in Cincinnati, Ohio, yet the road to get there would test more than just her cosmetology skills. The journey proved to be worth it after seeing the joy and happiness on her customers’ faces from receiving her services.

Sein grew up in Cambodia. She loved to cook and play dress-up with her friends in her free time. She sold fruits and vegetables to get money,and told herself someday she would sell something that smelled much better. She even went as far as to use fruit to paint her nails before she had nail polish.

When she got married, her cousin suggested that she go to America to chase her dreams. She started practicing cutting hair and could not stop even when she was at home. She had a natural talent for haircuts and styles, pedicures and manicures, and massages. Her goal was to help people feel good and look good, giving them the confidence to excel. Not only did she give them confidence, but by seeing how impressed and happy they were with her
results, it gave her the confidence to take things to the next level. She decided she wanted to open her own personal business with the primary goal of helping people. She dreamed of having her own space and sharing the environment with people who had the same passion and hard-working attitude.
When she first came to America in 2003, the only thing on her mind was taking care of her family back home. She wanted to be sure she could make enough money to send her brother and sister to college, and buy them a small house so they had a place to live. A job, any job. She had no idea what to expect, and even questioned if she would be treated like a slave.

Fortunately, with the support of her husband and people around her in America, she eventually decided it could be possible. In 2004, her first year in the states, she received her nail license. By 2006, she had her citizenship in America and was able to bring her family here. In 2007, she went back to cosmology school. In early 2009, she received her license, along with a new addition to the family, a baby girl.

In July of 2014, Sein’s dream finally came true when she opened Dream Salon and Spa. With very specific standards, customer service was her first and foremost importance. Sein has been committed to treating customers the way she would want to be treated. She recognized how humans should be treated and cared for and committed to treating her guests like family.

Sein’s goal is to give back by using her gifts and talents to help her customers love themselves and feel worthy. Sein proves time and time again that hard work and big dreams are trying, but not impossible. By following through with her big dream, she has been able to provide a unique experience to people in Cincinnati, one that can only be explained by experiencing it for yourself!

We guarantee our shellac manicure for up to 2 weeks. If it chips within that time, we will fix it with the same polish free of charge. However, if you request a different color, that is considered a polish change and therefore charges may apply.

Cancellation/Late Arrival: Please cancel within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment time. If you arrive late for your appointment or choose to change/add on services, we will do our best to accommodate based on service provider availability.

Children: Our salon is kid-friendly. However, we also strive to create a relaxing atmosphere for all of our guests. If your child becomes disruptive or disrespects the area, we reserve the right to ask you to leave with your child or ask you to make other arrangements at the management’s discretion.
