Is there a future for a Nail Technician Career?

For many people, manicures and pedicures are an absolute necessity—a beauty treatment that they will continue to work into their budget, even when times are tough. Nail service prices are strong and these services are a core part of the booming spa industry that is expected to only increase in demand. The hardest part of becoming a nail technician is building up the loyal clientele you need to make a steady income. It takes persistence and hard work to find a good position and build a thriving career. The best nail technicians never stop learning.

Why become a Nail Technician?

Our hands and feet can say a lot about who we are, and nail technicians spend their time grooming and beautifying these telltale parts. Not that long ago, "mani-pedi" was a term used only by the wealthiest ladies of leisure. Now many women and men enjoy regular manicures and pedicures as part of their normal beauty routines. The most successful nail technicians make a manicure or a pedicure into a luxurious experience for their clients. The average nail technician works 34.5 hours a week, providing more flexibility for additional personal time, family time or continuing education.
