What does a nail technician do?
If you’re feeling bored in your job, it could be time to consider a new career. Choose a job that won’t see you sat in front of a computer all day and become a nail technician.
You could work as a nail technician in a salon, nail bar, department store, or spa. Another option is to start your own business and visit your customers at home.
Nail technicians carry out treatments including:
- Manicures and pedicures.
- Taking care of false nails and extensions.
- Filing nails.
- Decorating nails with gems, glitter, or transfer designs.
- Keeping nails healthy and clean.
Why be a nail technician?
Every day will be different and you’ll never stop learning, or meeting new people. You’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you have made your customers happy. Working as a nail technician can also be flexible around your family life.
What skills do you need?
Skills you’ll need include being creative, having an eye for detail and being patient enough to take your time on each nail. Customer service skills are a must and you’ll need to be friendly and chatty with your customers as you work.
