5 Reasons To Consider a Career as a Nail Artist
Do you love doing your nails? Nail art can be such a fun way to let out your artistic and creative side while making a career by showing off your talents! Plus, there’s nearly no limit to where your creativity can take you as a nail artist. Just take a look at any Pinterest or Instagram-worthy nail pictures and you’ll see that the sky is the limit.
If nail art is something you love, then you may want to consider a career as a nail technician. It can be an extremely fun and rewarding career for several reasons, but we’ll cover just a few of our favorite benefits.
1. You Can Show Off Your Creativity
If you’ve always been excited to find a career that lets you express your creativity, then you should consider becoming a nail technician. Working as a nail artist means you get to show off your creative side every single day.
Whether it means trying out a new nail trend on one of your clients, or showing off your skills with an elaborate manicure for a special event, no two workdays will ever be the same. Imagine your clients’ nails as a blank canvas and have fun with it!
2. You Can Enjoy a Flexible Schedule
Nail salons are typically quite flexible when it comes to scheduling, so you can find a position that works with your busy life. Whether you’re looking for something part-time, full-time, or weekends-only, you’re likely to find a great salon that will work with you. And of course, should you ever decide to open your own nail salon or work as a freelancer, you can have the ultimate job flexibility as you can choose when you want to work.
3. You Can Form Relationships With People
If you’re the type of person who loves connecting with others and helping them feel better about themselves, then a career as a nail technician is a great opportunity for you. Each day, you can work with different clients and give them their favorite new nail looks.
You can even build relationships with them over social media by sharing some of your favorite nail art inspiration to help prepare with ideas for their next nail appointment. And who knows? Some of your best clients could even become your closest friends.
4. Nail Technician Programs Can Be Affordable
Some nail technician programs can be completed in as little as 15 weeks, so you can save on the time, hassle, and cost of completing a traditional university degree while still enjoying a rewarding career.
Because nail technician programs are shorter, they’re often easier on your budget than other beauty school programs. And, there are still resources out there to make paying for school possible! There can also be financial aid opportunities available to those who qualify. That way, you can focus more on building a future you love rather than how you’re going to pay for school. Get in touch with our admissions team to learn more about how you can get started applying for financial aid to any of our programs.
5. Nail Technicians Are in Demand
Did you know that manicurist and pedicurist jobs are growing? These types of jobs are expected to grow in the years 2019 to 2029 by 19%. In comparison, the average of all jobs in the United States are expected to grow by 4%. That’s much faster than normal and very exciting news to those who are wanting to join this field in the beauty industry.
