Percent change in employment, projected 2010-20


Note: All Occupations includes all occupations in the U.S. Economy.

www.bls.gov, Employment Projections program
Employment of manicurists and pedicurists is expected to grow 17 percent from 2010 to
2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

The increase in employment reflects demand for new nail services being offered, such as
mini sessions (quick manicures at a low cost) and mobile manicures and pedicures more
healthful lifestyle through better grooming and wellness should also result in higher
employment.

Considered a low-cost luxury service, manicures and pedicures will continue to be in
demand by individuals at all income levels.   

Job Prospects
Job opportunities should be very good overall. The growing number of nail salons and the
need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations will result in many job
openings.

Pay
The median hourly wage of manicurists and pedicurists was $9.45 in May 2010. The
median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than
that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $7.85, and the
top 10 percent earned more than $14.71.

Although most manicurists and pedicurists work full time, many have variable schedules
and work part time. Their schedules are often determined by the type of establishment
they work for. For example, a full service salon may require manicurists and pedicurists to
work an eight-hour day. A boutique hair salon, however, may require shorter work hours
on a part-time basis. Longer hours are not unusual for self-employed workers. Weekends
and evenings tend to be the busiest times for manicurists and pedicurists
