How much can Nail Technicians earn?

Nail services can cost $20-70 per hour depending on what kind of business you work in. Most people are familiar with cheap low end salons but high end spas or resort services are usually $40-100 each. Techs usually earn about half of the service cost in a salon plus an added 10-20% tip. Some businesses offer benefits and/or lower commission on top of an hourly salary.  Retail sales can add additional income from products sold to customers. See jobs HERE
