3 Things to Expect When Working as a Nail Technician



Have you thought about entering the field of cosmetology? If so, you will be glad to know there are many exciting fields cosmetology school has to offer. One such field is nail technician. If you’ve been contemplating becoming a nail technician, here are three things you can expect:

Great Opportunity to Work with Your Hands

If you like working with your hands, becoming a nail technician is the perfect job for you. The best part is, not only are you working with your hands, but you are working on the hands of others. As a nail technician, you will be responsible for making others feel relaxed while giving them a boost in their confidence by making their hands and nails look beautiful. Whether clients are preparing for prom, a wedding, or simply want to be pampered, you will have no shortage of opportunities to fulfill their need when working on their hands with yours.

People Skills Required

If you enjoy being around different kinds of people and actively like getting to know others, becoming a nail technician is a great opportunity. Having other people skills such as the ability to listen well, demonstrate empathy for others and help people to solve their problems are also great characteristics for a nail technician. If you have a sincere desire to help others, you will find many fulfilling rewards as a nail technician.

Job Security

One of the greatest benefits of becoming a nail technician is the job security it provides. In 2012, there were a total of 86,900 manicurists and pedicurists (the category nail technician falls under) employed in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook is expected to grow 16 percent, which is faster than average. Whether you choose to become a nail technician in a spa, nail salon, hair salon or have your own business, there may be no shortage of job opportunities for you.

Besides the above expectations for nail technicians, you will also be able to have fun by using your creative skills while working with different types of materials, textures and colors. The job of nail technician is not a physically demanding one, so if you prefer to sit rather than stand on your feet all day, this is one more great reason to consider becoming a nail technician.
