Nail Technician Job Outlook Continues to be Strong

featured image

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 10.1 percent employment growth for nail technicians between 2018 and 2028. In that period, an estimated 15,700 jobs should open up.

Manicures and pedicures are one of the few luxuries some women and men can’t live without. It’s no wonder, then, that the U.S. market for nail services saw revenues of about $8.4 billion in 2018, according to statistics company Statista.

Nail technicians provide nail services to customers at salons, spas and barber shops, while some technicians operate their own business. Nail techs clean, file, trim, polish and repair fingernails and toenails. They discuss treatments with clients, such as applying artificial nails or moisturizing hands and feet, and sell additional services and products.To encourage repeat customer visits, manicurists and pedicurists must also have excellent customer service skills and listen to the client’s needs – including personal problems and juicy gossip – so being a “people person” is a must.

How to Become a Nail Technician?

Nail technicians are required to complete a state-approved cosmetology or nail technician program. Most areas have a local cosmetology school or offer trade classes in personal care. In the Fargo – Moorhead area, The Salon Professional Academy offers a part-time program which allows you to keep your day-job while you learn. Training programs include courses on the tools and products used to provide manicures and pedicures, identifying skin and nail disorders, disinfecting techniques and sanitation.After completing the program, nail technicians must take written and practical exams to get a license through their state board, which all states require except Connecticut. Applicants for licensure must be at least 16 years old and have a high school diploma or its equivalent.
