The owner of the salon, a gangster stuck in a moll's body, a discerning curator of the female oddities who make up her crew. Desna will throw down and fight to the death but also eats Lean Cuisines and worries about getting fat.
A mild-mannered preppy who works as a manicurist at the nail salon. Polly has recently been released from prison, where she did time for identity theft on seniors. Beneath that southern gentility beats the heart of a con artist and master manipulator.
Our troubled ingénue, in a strippery kind of way. What you see first in Virginia - the bored hotness, the attitude, the bluster - disguises her truth, which is that she’s desperately looking for a place to belong.
A woman of few words, an enigma who discovered women in prison and discovered is an understatement - mastered is more like it. Now her thing is macking bored Florida housewives and being Desna’s driver and muscle when necessary.
Desna's best friend and co-worker, a hard woman with a filthy sense of humor, used to be wild but has settled down a lot. Tenuously sober, loves her kids more than anything but sometimes feels trapped.
A larger than life, dangerous, deeply Catholic bisexual who runs go-go joints up and down the Gulf Coast. He raised Roller and Bryce when their father was shot. This is a man who lives his numerous contradictions right out in the open.
A gangstered-out redneck who runs his uncle’s barely legal pain clinic and uses Desna's (Niecy Nash) nail salon to launder their obscene profits. A swaggering man-beast who thinks he owns the world; Roller's outrageous lifestyle just might be his downfall.
