Nail salons in the United States – additional information

A nail salon is a speciality beauty salon which provides nail care services including manicures and pedicures and nail enhancement services such as polishes, overlays and extensions to both male and female customers.
The increase in revenue from nail salon services in previous years has not corresponded with a growth in the number of nail salons across the United States. In 2006 there were approximately 59,843 nail salons in the U.S. and this number has since oscillated over the years. In 2013, the figure dropped to 48,930 nail salons; a decrease of over 10,000 salons. By 2015, the number of nail salons more than doubled, with over 129,600 salons in that year but only to drop to about 69,700 in 2016.
Salons can compete with one another by the price and range of services they offer. The share of services offered at nail salons and studios in the U.S. was documented in 2014. In that year, 95 percent of salons offered pedicures and polish changes making them the most common types of services. At the opposite end of the ranking came acrylic toenails with 36 percent and foot massages with 26 percent.
As manicures were deemed the most common type of service offered by nail salons, customers may need assistance when deciding which salon to use. The reputation of a particular nail technician may help this decision. So may the price. Between 2003 and 2016, the average price of a basic manicure at nail studios in the U.S. has been recorded. In 2015, the average price was 20.2 U.S. dollars, which is the highest price since 2005. When it comes to the average price of deluxe manicures however, customers were expected to pay up to 29 U.S. dollars in 2016.
