Nails Specialty Program
Manicurists and pedicurists clean, shape, and beautify fingernails and toenails.
Manicurists and pedicurists work exclusively on the hands and feet, providing treatments to groom fingernails and toenails. A typical treatment involves soaking the clients’ hands or feet to soften the skin in order to remove dead skin cells. Manicurists and pedicurists apply lotion to the hands and feet to moisturize the skin. They also may shape and apply polish to artificial fingernails. Manicurists and pedicurists use a variety of tools, including nail clippers, nail files, and specialized cuticle tools. They must be focused while they perform their duties, because most of the tools they use are sharp. Keeping their tools clean and sanitary is important.
Employment of manicurists and pedicurists is projected to grow 13% from 2016 to 2026.
The average wage for this career in Florida is $14.45 hourly or $28,900 annually.
