Are you looking for that special nail salon, one where
you will feel comfortable and at ease? Let’s look
at what makes a nail salon great!
First, make sure they are licensed. The nail salon should
have a state-license that was issued by the Health licensing
Office in public view. Also each nail technician should
also have their own license and, not just a photocopy,
in plain view.
In the workstation area of the nail salon make sure
it is clean. There should be no dirt or dust of any kind
in this area. All disposable nail care products should
be disposed of. You should see disinfected and clean
instruments in the nail salon workstation.
A smoke free salon is a very important factor in
choosing a nail salon. Many products that are used in
nail care are highly flammable so no one should be permitted
to smoke. Ventilation is very important to make sure
that the fumes from the nail care products are not too
strong causing a fire hazard as well.
The nail salon should be organized especially in the
workstation area. Look for containers clearly marked
with the contents of each and every item. Also, as you
sit and wait for your turn watch the nail technician,
they should thoroughly wash their hands with soap before
touching a client’s
hand, instruments and supplies that can not be disinfected.
Items would include the sponges and orange sticks used
in nail care.

find one that is just right for you. Before you make
your decision, sit and watch the procedures that the
nail technicians use. Watch to see if they immediately
throw away disposable nail care products and keep a clean
You want to feel at home in a nail salon, observe the
customers and workers to see how you feel, use your intuition
and make a logical decision as to whether this nail salon
is for you.
Pricing in each nail salon will differ. But, as the
old saying goes you get what you pay for. You can tell
if they are overcharging, by how much the supplies cost
at the beauty supply store. Also, you do not want to
be undercharged, and then they may be reusing disposable
nail care products to cover their loss.
With the above information you should be able to choose
a nail salon with ease. You will be able to tell if this
is the nail salon for you. Now, enjoy your time and trust
your nail technician to care for your nails and you
will be comfortable and have beautiful nails.
