Nail Technician Job Outlook Continues to be Strong
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.
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.
