Nail Technicians today come in two types: Licensed and Unlicensed.
Any person in the State of Virginia must be state licensed to sell nail care services of any kind. This license must always be posted for customers to view at any time or they can be reported to DPOR at (804) 367-8504 or by email ComplaintAnalysis@dpor.virginia.gov
To get a Nail License students must pass a State Approved education inside a State Licensed Nail School for the state they want to work in.
Many types of people come to our school to get a Nail License. Some want it for a career, a side job or a hobby. Licensed Nail Technicians are in demand at an all time high right now. This is the right time to get into the Nail Trade business!
COLLEGE/HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:
Most parents don't realize that a side trade today can help their college student work holidays, weekends and/or summers to get the income they need while networking to obtain job employment for the career they are studying in college. Great success can come to a high school student or college student with a trade skill.
Parents with a Nail Techncian license can work flexible hours to be there for there children when they want to be. Parents can work at home or part time to make extra cash when they need it. An experienced Nail Tech can work 4-5 days a month to make over $1,000 in the comfort of their own home.
Typical nail services can cost around $15-100 per hour with the higher end salons and spas usually charging double to triple the average nail cost. The lower end nail salon usually average in income around minimum wage or less. The higher end salons and spas can offer an income of $20-50 an hour! The higher end resorts/spas are the recommended places to work for a consistent competitive salary but they require a nail license to avoid violations, liability and fines.
Nail Techs usually earn around 40-60% of the service cost plus an added 10-20% tip. Some of the higher end businesses that only employ licensed Nail Techs may offer benefits and/or a gauranteed hourly salary with a lower added commission per service. Retail sales commission can add additional income from products sold to customers. Nail career statistics data does not distinquish the difference with high end or low end salary calculations.
