What you can expect to experience while on the job
Employment of manicurists and pedicurists is projected to grow 12 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. The projected increase in employment reflects demand for new types of nail services, such as mini-sessions (quick manicures at a low cost) and mobile manicures and pedicures (nail services offered outside of the salon). The desire among many women and a growing number of men to lead a healthier lifestyle through better grooming and wellness also should result in higher employment for manicurists and pedicurists. Considered a low-cost luxury service, manicures and pedicures will continue to be in demand by individuals at all income levels.Read More
