Nail Salons

Nail Salons

Overview

The 23,700 nail salons in the US provide nail care services, such as manicures, pedicures, and nail extensions. Manicures and pedicures account for over 85% of industry sales. Nail salons may also offer skin care, hair removal, or other spa-related services. Specialty services include waxing, eyebrow shaping, massage, wraps, reflexology, and eyelash services. Nail technicians may be employees or may rent booth space from the salon and act as independent operators.

Competition From Alternative Service Providers

Nail salons face competition from a variety of alternative service providers, including full-service beauty salons, spas, and clients themselves.

Nail Art

Nail art is a small, but growing category within the nail salon industry, driven by increased popularity among celebrities and the fashion world.
