Overview

Prior study is not a prerequisite - you just need a passion for the subject matter!

Over recent years there has been a huge increase in demand for personal grooming products, and an upsurge in gymnasium attendance as people try to emulate the pristine appearance of their favourite music, film or soap stars, as well as a massive growth in start-up businesses within the beauty and glamour sector.

Which is why this is the best possible time to consider a new career within that sector, and the best way to hit the ground running is to get yourself trained in the skills required.

If you enjoy working with people, are creative or artistic, and love keeping up with the latest fashion trends, a new career in the beauty industry could be for you. Work in the sector is both interesting and varied, and job satisfaction is very high indeed.

What is a Nail Technician?

Nail Technicians generally work in beauty salons or nail bars. They carry out different nail treatments on a daily basis from the basic manicure to nail extensions. Nail technicians have a general interest in beauty and enjoy satisfying customers through this. Good customer service skills are needed as well as being approachable and having effective communication between the Nail technician and the client.

Why did you become a Nail Technician?

Ever since being a young girl I have loved the idea of beauty and fashion. When I was a teenager I loved the idea of going to have my nails done and very much enjoyed painting and decorating my own nails. I knew this was something I wanted to take up at college. I went onto college to take a two year nail technician course which I thoroughly enjoyed.

What activities do Nail Technicians do on a day to day basis?

On a daily basis nail technicians will see their clients. They carry out many different nail treatments, such as manicures and pedicures, applying nail extensions, applying polish and decorating nails, removing nail extensions. Nail technicians would also have to give their clients on advice on the correct nail care depending on what treatment the client had done.

What qualifications do I need to become a Nail Technician?

To become a Nail Technician it is usually a requirement to have NVQ Levels 1 & 2 in Nail Treatments. Salons, beauty rooms and nail bars would not usually employ anyone who has not completed a n NVQ in Nail Treatments for insurance purposes. These can be completed at local college’s full time/ part time and sometimes in evening classes.

What can I expect to earn as a Nail Technician?

Nail technicians can earn from £12,000 - £16,000 a year

Experience Nail technicians can earn up to £25,000 a year
