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 lower end nail salons that can earn around minimum wage but most people do not visit high end spas or resort to realize that services are usually $40-150 each at these locations. Techs usually earn around half of the service cost in a salon plus an added 10-20% tip.  Some of the higher end businesses will offer benefits and/or lower commission on top of an hourly salary.  Retail sales can add additional income from products sold to customers. The nail employment market on the higher end that only want LICENSED Nail Technicians is in serious EXTREME high demand!
