Opening a manicure studio – What we need to know?


It is no secret that well-groomed hands are considered a sign of good taste and aesthetics. That is why women today rarely miss a manicure. You can not go to the hairdresser for months, make-up in your daily life everyone does yourself, the beautician is not visited by everyone, but the maintenance of a good-looking manicure is needed at least a bunch of months. With such a serious demand for manicurists, opening a manicure studio can be a lucrative business.
In the following lines we will give you a little more detailed information on how to start this type of business.

For starters, let’s start by introducing you to the different forms of opening a manicure studio:

Option 1 – the owner pays rent / uses his own premises, makes repairs, buys all the equipment. Here you can be a manicurist or hire one.

Option 2 – Rent a room to a manicurist. In this case, the manicurists work entirely with their equipment and materials, take all the profits for themselves, and pay rent to the owner of the salon.

Option 3 – Salon at home. A good option for beginner manicurists without start-up capital.

In addition, if you already have a beauty salon, you do not need to open a manicure studio. You can just open a manicure place in it.
