NEW YORK, May 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hudson BLVD. Group, LLC (HBG) the nation's premier multi-brand beauty services operator, announced today that it is has secured the fourth pillar of its service offerings through the acquisition of celebrity-favorite nail art destination, Valley.
HBG was formed in 2015 and currently operates a diverse portfolio of beauty brands across the hair, skin and makeup categories, including DreamDry, co-founded by Rachel Zoe, Spruce & Bond and Pucker, respectively. With the acquisition of Valley, HBG rounds out its assortment with the nail category.
Founded in 2006 by Los Angeles native Nina Werman, Valley was the first of its kind to deliver highly personalized nail-art services and impeccable nail care. With three NYC locations spanning Nolita, Chelsea and the Upper East Side, Valley has catered to a discerning clientele looking for a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere.
HBG operates 16 locations across four brands following the acquisition. With expansion underway in 2017, the Company's store count will grow to 19 and new services and product lines will be introduced. Further plans to integrate Valley across HBG's portfolio are in development, including within the debut of HBG's first multi-brand store concept which will open next month in New York.
"We are thrilled to include Valley as a sister brand in our portfolio," says Robin Moraetes, President of HBG. "Valley was the first of its kind, introducing nail art to consumers before it was a trend. It's where I went when I first moved to New York from LA. We see immediate opportunities to grow the Valley business by introducing the brand across our existing customer base and alongside the other brands in our portfolio."
"I'm so happy to have found a home for Valley within HBG, which I'm confident will enable the business to grow to the next level," said Werman. "I'm proud Valley has brought such meaning to our clients over the years, and I'm excited that within the HBG enterprise I have the opportunity to further develop the brand through new product and service offerings." Werman joins HBG as Founder and Brand Director of Valley, and will continue to provide creative direction for the business and its offerings.
This news comes on the heels of HBG's recently announced partnership with Neiman Marcus to launch DreamDry salons nationwide beginning later this year.
