It is becoming harder to find nail tech jobs at spas and nail shops. When the price of a manicure is low and the employer pays a low commission, it’s difficult to fill the positions in nail tech. But times are changing. Because a skilled and experienced nail technician is a hot commodity, it’s easy for them to be picky. Salons and spas need to charge more for creative services, customized nail services, and more packages. Nail techs can offer more than just a manicure and pedicure. Last time I got a manicure, the nail tech finished it with a five-minute upper back massage.
Spas and salons need to be open to new ideas and offer services that are not often offered to increase their income. Your salon/spa will be able to offer services such as spa manicures and spa pedicures that include a sea salt scrub for exfoliations. Aromatherapy adds value to your menu. Favorites include Geranium and Lavender.
Parraffin, the hottest new addition, could cost as much as $20. Parraffin can be applied to hands using a new method that uses disposable gloves. The chemical activates once sealed, which causes soothing heat to melt the paraffin, allowing deeper moisturization. Once the gloves have been used, they can be thrown away.
There are many great ways to offer world-class service and increase clientele. After applying sea salt to the client’s hands, wrap their hand in a warm towel. Wrap the client’s lower arm and hand with a larger towel. You will be loved by your client. You can also do this service on your legs and feet. Customers can request customized nail tech services, such as the strawberry daquiri and chocolate martini. These drinks are not actually drinks, but can be served in martini glasses (there are beautiful plastic martini glass). After your client is done, pour them a glass of wine.
Martini parties and manicures are the latest trends in nail tech, and most shops cannot accommodate them. Invite clients back to your nail salon for a manicure or martini party. They will need to pay a fixed price for a manicure and pedicure, hand food and music, as well as a glass wine. It will surprise you at the number of people who show up. You can have a “Bring a Pal Pedicure Party” and ensure that the pal is a man. Men love to get their nails done. Post dates and times for your nail techs, and have your receptionist give out invite cards to your customers.
Here’s an idea: When customers call your salon, answer the phone with this: “Thank you for calling Nail Spa. We are having our first annual Martini Party Friday!” Jenny, how can I assist you? This is what famous restaurants do, and it works every time!
Natural nail care is growing in popularity. Women want services that do not contain harmful chemicals. Acrylic is becoming more sophisticated. If the nail tech wears a mask, why shouldn’t their customers? This is a different topic. Spa Ritual, a vegan nail polish, is another option. The no chip manicure is also available, which is great for natural nail growth.
