SEATTLE — More and more people are turning to nail saloons for manicure supplies and manicure treatments.
The trend is being driven by the recession, as consumers are spending less on jewelry and more on manicures.
The salon industry is booming, but the trend isn’t entirely new.
More than 200,000 nail saloon licenses have been issued across the United States, according to a recent report from the American Society of Hairdressers and Allied Trades.
The number of salons in the United Kingdom and Germany have been growing, too.
Salons are popular among young people, and are also becoming popular for those who like to have a good time, such as those who don’t want to get their nails done on a daily basis.
“People want something that’s fun and fun for a long time,” said Dr. Paul L. Fisch, director of the dermatology department at St. Anthony’s Hospital in New York City.
“Nail salons, with all the manicures, can provide that.”
Many nail salon owners are also looking for a place to get away from it all.
“I get a lot of requests for manicures in my salon, especially in New Jersey,” said Stephanie H. Lech, owner of the salon in the Midtown Manhattan shopping center of Manhattan.
For Lech and other nail salontowners, nail salON is a way to recharge.
There are two types of manicures available at nail salon licenses.
First, there are the basic, “salon style” manicures that are designed to give a “classic, classic look,” Lech said.
The second type of manicure is designed to appeal to the younger demographic.
Nail salon owners who use the basic style manicures are charged $60-$80, but those who use a more “modern, contemporary” style may charge $150-$300.
The fee is based on a percentage of the manicure price, but most of the money goes toward salon equipment and supplies.
“I don’t charge a fee because I’m not making any money off of it,” Leech said.
Lech said she doesn’t charge for any additional treatments, and only requires her salon customers to wear nail polish to the salon, which includes a tattoo artist and a hair stylist.
While manicure prices vary, most salon owners said they usually charge $100 for a basic style and $300 for a more modern style.
Holland, of the New York State Department of Financial Services, said that most salons charge a $100 fee for basic style, and $150 for a newer style.
Hollis said that many salon owners charge $300 or less for basic manicures and $500 or less, depending on the style of the nail salon.
Leech has been charged $600 for a simple style, which is designed for younger women.
It’s not clear whether manicures made from recycled materials or natural materials are included in the fee, but nail salon owners often use reclaimed nail polish or natural products to make the basic manicure, Fisch said.
Fisch said he’s seen salon owners use “paint-on-a-chip” technology to create a more natural-looking manicure.
He said he didn’t see any cases where the salon owners charged more than $300 per manicure because the salon had to buy the nail polish itself.
In many instances, he said, nail salon customers are paying the same amount for manicurists because of the technology, which allows customers to create their own manicures with their own materials.
As for the cost of manicurants, Fich said he doesn’t think there’s a “cost” to the industry, but he said it would be “more interesting” to see a report from his office to find out what is going on.
He said the fee is a “natural way” to make money, and he doesn.t know why some salons are charging more for manicured nails.
Fich does say, however, that he does not expect many salons to go out of business.
He is working on legislation that would require the government to collect a fee for each type of nail salon license.
Dr. Paul S. Molloy, president of the American Academy of Dermatology, said there’s not a huge difference between a manicure and a tattoo.
Molloy said there are two main types of nail salonies: basic and basic style.
Basic manicures look similar to a basic salon, he added, and there are no tattoos, though there are other types of salon in the nail shop.
Most salons sell nail sal on the premises, but they also offer free manicures at the salon’s window.
