Every woman deserves a little time for herself. Whether it’s finally catching up on her favorite show; treating herself to a long, hot bath; or just reading a magazine in silence, it’s important to make time for a little luxury.
But in today’s lightning-fast world, that’s easier said than done. There are bills to pay, errands to do, a house to run. As this video of one crazed mom proves, sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day.
That’s what makes this trailer so brilliant. With a little blood, sweat, and a few buckets of pink paint, this 1960s Airstream has been transformed into a one-woman revolution!
Now, for busy women in need of some “me” time, luxury doesn’t need to be a thing of the past. This on-the-go salon will come to you, and after 10 short minutes inside this plush trailer, you’ll emerge a whole new lady.
After scrolling through these incredible photos, be sure to watch the charming 1960s video at the end. It’s a lovely little slice of the past.

During the ’40s and ’50s, the Airstream trailer was advertised as an easy-to-tow “trailercoach,” used primarily for camping and traveling.
But in 2014, at the clever hands of Sarah Aflak, this vintage trailer underwent a very dainty transformation.
Now, what was once a 1960s hunk of aluminum is a beautiful powder pink manicure mobile called La Lacquerie!
But turning this vintage trailer into a traveling nail salon wasn’t an easy transformation.
The trailer, bought off of Craigslist, required a lot of repiping and rewiring before its salon doors could open.
Once it was up to code with the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology, it was ready for business!
Draped from head to toe in pink and glimmering with sparkly accents, this traveling manicure station is the stuff of every girl’s dreams.
The idea for a traveling nail salon came to Sarah when she was at work and went to grab a quick lunch from a food truck.
With her long office hours and hectic weekends, it was tough for Sarah to find time for herself. “Nails were the one thing I did for myself,” said Sarah. “It was always such a hassle to schlep across town to get my nails done.”
Sarah knew she wasn’t the only time-strapped, overworked woman out there. “I thought to myself, if only there was a way to combine the food truck model with beauty service.”
That’s when the lightbulb clicked on. Sarah knew it was crazy, but she had an idea.
Sarah did something bold. She quit her job; enrolled in beauty school; bought a cheap, old camper; and began to build La Lacquerie.
Now, a couple of sweat-drenched years later, Sarah’s brave move paid off. La Lacquerie has blossomed into a beautiful enterprise!
Her pretty-in-pink trailer is now spotted all around San Francisco, heading to offices and private parties in the area.
Little girls love the plush pink interior and the ladylike treatment.
Women enjoy the soft tranquility and the top-of-the-line products.
It’s the perfect traveling oasis for busy women — and men, too, if they’re bold enough to enter a lush pink trailer!
The next step? Converting more vintage trailers to further grow La Lacquerie, and then maybe expanding into the world of waxing!
