Nail salons in the U.S.
The nail salon industry in the United States is a large and thriving industry, which is active across all 50 states. However, the accessibility and types of clients have changed drastically since the early 20th century. In the early 1900s, nail salons were accessible to only wealthy women. Over the next two decades, it became possible to buy nail polish in stores. Having a manicured hand was a sign of wealth and social status during that time period. In today’s society, manicures and pedicures are available to everyone. As a result of this, there has been an increased amount of spending on nail salon services from 1998. However, the number of nail salons in the United States has decreased since 2006. On the other hand, the number of nail technicians has increased. Manicurists and pedicurists make about one third of what theatrical and performance makeup artists make, who are the highest paid employees in personal appearance services in the United States.
Acrylics are one of the many services offered at nail salons. Acrylic nails are a mix of powder and liquid product, which are shaped into a soft ball and then formed into a nail shape. The acrylic is applied to the nail then hardened to become stronger, then painted with nail polish. The average price for an acrylic fill has steadily increased from 2006 to 2019. Acrylic nail upkeep requires coming to the nail salon about every two weeks.
