Is it almost time for you to join the workforce? Are you
dissatisfied with your current career path? In either case, enrolling in a nail
technician school might be the right move for you. One reason you may want to
train to be a nail technician is job growth. According to the U.S. Bureau of
Labor Statistics, demand for nail technicians is expected to grow by 13 percent
between 2016 and 2026, which
is faster than average across occupations.
In addition to a growing number of nail tech positions,
there are plenty of other reasons why being a manicurist and pedicurist is so
great. One of them is a steady income. It’s important to
remember that nail specialists have unlimited income potential, depending on
how much they’re willing to work. As a general rule, the more you work as a
nail technician, the more you’ll make.
Here are some other reasons why being a nail technician is
- You Have Independence:
You can work as an independent contractor and set your own hours. If you open
your own salon, you can hire someone to manage it for you.
- You Can Flex Your Creative Muscles Every Day: Being a nail tech requires creativity, which means you
get to exercise your creative side every single day.
- You Can Avoid Student Loans: While you do have to train at one of the area’s nail
technology schools, you won’t be weighed down with exorbitant student loans
that way too many college graduates have for years after they leave school.
- You’ll Make Friends:
In addition to befriending the other people who work at your salon, it’s likely
that you’ll become friends with a lot of your clients over time.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nail
technicians “clean, shape and beautify fingernails and toenails.” Manicurists
and pedicurists also provide advice about how their clients can care for their
nails better. They may also be a much needed, trusted earpiece during their
sessions with their clients, particularly when their clients are experiencing a
hardship of some sort.
Nail technicians can improve a person’s self-esteem through
their work and words of encouragement as well. Who doesn’t stand a little
straighter and walk a bit taller when their nails look wonderful, after all?
Every state except Connecticut requires you to earn a
license to work as a nail technician. To be able to take a state’s exam, you are

The length of time a training program will last depends on
the requirements of the state in which a training facility is located. It also
depends on whether courses are offered on a part- or full-time basis. In
general, you should expect a training program in any state to last at least a
few hundred hours and several weeks.
