And some nail techs have become event coordinators, starting little shows all over the world to fill the void left by the big (mostly hair) shows.​​

Nail techs have become published authors, writing books & articles for our nail magazines, plus some have become professional bloggers with thousands of online followers.​​

As nail techs, we should be proud!

No longer are we the "red headed step-children" of the beauty industry, relegated to a back corner of the salon as an afterthought. 

Nail techs are now salon owners (many with business degrees), creating jobs by employing hair stylists, estheticians, receptionists​ & other techs.

Nail tech Educators travel the world teaching the art & science of creating great nails, while giving techs the ability to support themselves in a fun career that they love.​

Nail techs have become beauty school instructors, teaching future

generations of nail techs, plus some have even become school owners.

Nail Tech Event of the Smokies

​This is OUR world.......where nail techs are the stars!

A few nail techs have used their business savvy & skills to become Competition Directors for conventions & even for reality TV shows, too​.

Nail techs have even created products of their own & are busier than ever training educators while operating their own growing nail companies.​

But the biggest segment of our nail industry are the part time techs who are raising a family or working 2 jobs while building their clientele. ​

Nail techs have entered competitions across the USA & Europe, honing their skills to become world class competition title holders.​
