“Employment of manicurists and pedicurists is projected to grow 16% from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. New nail services being offered, such as mini sessions and mobile manicures and pedicures will drive employment growth. High turnover and a growing number of nail salons will result in very good job opportunities.”
