The Hidden Side of the NAILS Industry That No One Tells You

The Hidden Side of the NAILS Industry That No One Tells You

The nail industry is often considered an easy profession with a “huge” income, and one does not need a high level of education to perform it. But what is the hidden side of a seemingly glamorous job? What is the hidden side of the NAILS industry that you have never known? All will be answered through this article.

Working hours are not fixed

The nail profession is indeed an easy-to-find job because the demand for beauty is extremely high, especially in the US. The qualifications of the nail industry do not require too much, and nail technicians can earn a lot of money depending on their skills and tips from customers.

However, the nature of the nail industry is a service industry, so working hours will be unpredictable. Unlike administrative professions, which are only 8 hours a day, and if you work overtime, you will be paid double for that time. For nail technicians, working from 10 to 12 hours a day is something that many nail technicians have to go through.

In cases where the salon is about to close, but customers require nail services, you still have to work extra hours to make customers happy. Customers often visit nail salons after office hours, which is also the most leisurely time of the day, and they need to find a place to relax, so nail technicians have to sacrifice their health to do their job. Because they have to stay up late, work more at night instead of working during office hours.

Accepting a trade-off in personal life

The weekend is also a time to rest and regain spirit after a tiring working week, so the number of customers coming to the nail salon will also increase significantly. But for nail technicians, this is the golden time to make money for themselves, so many people will accept this. This is also a hidden side of the nails industry, although perhaps everyone is aware of this. Therefore, nail technicians will not be allowed to take off work on the weekend, they can only take one other day during the week.

Weekends are often the time for everyone to spend with their families and children, or it will be the time for themselves to relax, and go on short trips. For nail technicians, weekends will be the busiest time because customers will be very crowded, and perform many nail services to meet their own beauty needs. Therefore, if a nail technician is a person who already has a family, they are forced to give up that time to work and earn extra income for themselves.

For many people, to earn extra money to support a better life, they work overtime, every day to receive higher wages, which means receiving more tips.

Work pressure is very high

Like other professions, the nail industry also has a hidden side. That’s a high level of competition, requiring both salon owners and nail technicians to progress and develop every day.

There is a lot of pressure in the nails industry

Pressure created between technicians and customers

For well-known nail salons, the number of customers will be under time pressure, forcing nail technicians to perform for customers in a short enough time but still ensuring quality. With the time to perform such tasks, nail technicians can consider how many customers they can serve and how many nail services they can do.

The weekend is also a time to rest and regain spirit for a tiring working week, so the number of customers coming to the nail salon will also increase significantly. But for nail technicians, this is the golden time to make money for themselves, so many people will accept this. This is also a hidden corner of the nail industry, although perhaps everyone is aware of this. Therefore, nail technicians will not be allowed to take off work on the weekend, they can only take one other day during the week.

With overloaded customers, nail technicians may be caught up in work, and may forget about eating, and personal hygiene, leading to serious health problems.

With picky customers, they will not like nail technicians spending too long on personal matters. In addition, there are also many people who, after performing nail services, feel dissatisfied, requiring nail technicians to redo or adjust, which makes the time to do nails significantly longer, and at this time, nail technicians must have patience and adapt to meet the needs of customers.

Pressure between technicians

The relationship between nail technicians is not only colleagues but also competitors. There is considerable pressure on the shoulders of nail technicians when they have to fight not only to win the number of customers but also to compete for favor from customers and services that customers have chosen before. The working environment becomes tense and full of competition, pushing beauty technicians into a race with no stopping point.

The pressure from competitors not only stimulates competition but also drives beauty technicians to constantly improve themselves. They must always update the latest trends, learn every day to avoid falling behind. New skills and creative services will help technicians attract and retain customers. A good technician not only knows how to make customers beautiful but also knows how to build a reliable and friendly relationship.

Problems between technicians and owners

In many cases, there is discrimination and bias from salon owners, creating pressure on technicians.

One of the main pressures on technicians is the pressure from salon owners for sales targets. Salon owners often set high targets for sales and profits, and technicians must meet these requirements.

Technicians may also face bias in the division of work and customers from salon owners. Salon owners may prioritize sending high-value customers or difficult jobs to some favorite technicians, while others have to do simple tasks or serve less valuable customers.

For nail salons that are not crowded, that pressure is on both the salon owner and the technician because at this time, the income of both will not be stable. Unknowingly becoming a burden on the journey to earn income to support life.

Insurance for nail technicians is quite limited

In the beauty industry, many nail technicians do not have access to social security or pension plans. This creates a lot of pressure and challenges as they have to rely on their resources to support themselves and take responsibility for their future well-being.

Without a pension plan, saving money and investing in the future becomes a top priority for nail technicians. To ensure a stable and financially secure life in the future, they must work as much as possible to save and accumulate money.

Without support from their employers or social security, they must set goals and manage their finances carefully. They must weigh the balance between daily expenses and investing in the future. Sometimes, this may require working day and night or seeking additional opportunities to increase their income.

Effects on health – a hidden side that many people forget

Although we are all aware that every industry has potential health problems, perhaps the following problems are hidden corners in the nail industry that many people are still unaware of today. The Nails industry still has these hidden sides without a thorough solution.

Digestive problems occur

Often exposed to many chemicals during work, such as making sulfur nail powder, it causes certain dangers for workers. On days when the salon is crowded, nail technicians often have to work and forget to eat. This can cause digestive problems such as stomach pain, stomach ulcers and other related problems.

Vein health is affected

Nail technicians often sit for long periods of time, especially when performing nail services. Sitting for long periods of time can lead to blood circulation problems and increase the risk of developing hemorrhoids.

Pay attention to breathing

Respiratory diseases that happen to nail technicians are probably a hidden corner that not everyone pays attention to. Because the process of grinding nails and making nail powder creates dust and small particles in the air. Breathing in these particles can cause damage to the lungs and may lead to breathing problems, such as pneumonia or other related problems.

Exposure to chemicals

This is inevitable in the working process. Such as removers, nail softeners, gels, nail polishes, and many others. Continuous exposure to these chemicals can be harmful to your health, causing skin irritation, skin problems, and other related problems.

Conclusion

The fact that nail technicians have to trade a lot to make money can affect their future and health. Although work can provide a steady income, there are also risks and negative health impacts.

Although the Nails industry looks flashy, there are also many hidden corners that only people in the industry know about. Every profession will go through difficulties and hardships to reach the path of development and success.
