Thanh Ha Nguyen owns a beauty salon on the outskirts of New York, where Aleida sought employment after being released from Litchfield. She is portayed by Kristen Hung.
When Aleida is released from Litchfield, she starts looking for a job that involves her manicure skill and then finds Thanh's salon, respectively.
Aleida initially exposes her abilities to Thanh, until she reports that Aleida would have to pay for training, which infuriates her.
Thanh dispenses Aleida when she begins to show hostile behavior and says that slavery is illegal in the United States and then leaves the place after showing the middle finger to the receptionist ("Sing It, White Effie")
