Why Nails?

A Career In The Beauty IndustryNail technician proficiency is a great skill to add on to an existing career such as Spa Therapist Aroma Massage or Reflexology. It’s also a great skills to learn simply to use for yourself, your friends as a nice present to give to family and friends when their birthday arrives.

There’s more to being a nail technician than just cleaning and painting nails. Many nail technicians specialize in nail art, acrylic nails and sculptured nails. Nail technicians instill self-confidence and an extra amount of self-esteem to their clients. After one or more pedicures, flip-flops and open-toe sandals march their way to the front of every closet and look forward to being in the spotlight. Pedicures give busy people (male as well as females) a chance to relax, pamper themselves, and keep feet healthy or start a new path to healthy feet.

Visits to a nail technician are like a mini spa-vacation for salon guests. The foot and hand massages are very relaxing, and guests love to put their feet up and enjoy a few stolen moments of leisure. In addition, pedicures prevent calluses, keep the bottoms of feet soft, remove dirt, prevent ingrown toenails and keep nails healthy. Manicures prevent hangnails, nail damage and strengthen fragile nails. Hand massages improve and increase the blood circulation, suppleness and flexibility of the hands and wrist. It also discourages wrinkling of the skin on the hands, which is one of the first body part to show the sign of aging.

The Business Of Nails

Nail technicians only became part of everyday self-care a dozen years ago. Up until then, ordinary people were happy doing home manicures or disregard the process all together. There is a very good potential for earning more money with the addition of nail technician skills or even by becoming a self-employed nail technician. Nail technician skills is a great way to add a second career to your existing “day job.” As a home based nail technician, you will have more independence and flexibility in respect of the hours you work.

To put yourself even further ahead of the salons, you can offer a mobile nail technician service. This would be a valuable service for people with special events such as weddings or birthday parties, senior citizens who cannot get around town easily, mother-daughter quality moments or work at home professionals.

One skill that is a must for this profession, but that can't necessarily be taught at nail technician schools, is the ability to connect with your clientele. The most successful nail technician careers are founded in a talent for making people feel comfortable
