I’m co-owner of Indira Salon & Spa with my husband, Michael Nass. We have been in business for 17+ years in the Green Bay community. We were originally a part of the Main Street revival but after seven years at that location we expanded to a new location in Bellevue. That success led us to the Chicago market where we currently have three more locations.
My first dancing recollection comes from when I was about 10. Back in the day, playing was pretty basic… either you rode your bike, went to the public swimming pool or used your imagination in the backyard. I was that child that was always trying to dream up something creative. I was in love with the Fonz and wanted to be Leather Tuscadero. I would hold sock hops in my basement and charge the neighborhood kids a quarter to get in. I even made my own poodle skirt out of scraps of material.
By far, my dream dance partner is John Travolta… Staying Alive in Saturday Night Fever! I also wanted to be Olivia Newton John and knew every word from the Grease soundtrack!
My favorite dancers of all time on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” are Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, not only for their chemistry on the dance floor, but also for keeping it fun , down to earth and real! Kirstie is a role model for all women that size does not matter and you can be sexy at any age! However being “sexy” on the dance floor is probably one of my greatest fears!
I am a seasoned hairstylist who loves to travel. I also own a vintage and retro boutique in Chicago called WiLa CoLLections (why I love art). I spend my free time hitting up estate sales in Chicago.
I’m supporting the American Red Cross because I recently had the privilege of adopting two girls, Lucy & Ruby, from Taiwan (ages 6 and 10). Every day I get to see the world through the eyes of a child like it was the first time again. It has brought me to a greater level of awareness how helping others can change lives!
