HOW MANY PEOPLE DO NAILS IN THE U.S.?

Good question. And the answer is, “It all depends on who you ask.” A drive through any town in the U.S. would lead you to believe that there are hundreds of thousands of nail salons in the U.S., practically one on every corner. But a glance through the records of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (the government agency that counts workers in all professions) would make you think that nail care was a growing, though still relatively small, career in the U.S.

But we do ultimately come up with these numbers, which are admittedly only estimates, though made with experience, solid data, and a fair amount of intuition. We pull data from four business lists, our own circulation list, online databases, the state boards of cosmetology (ironically, not always the best source for this information), and then we compare our survey data to these lists to come up with something that feels right.

The grand total number of active licenses in the U.S. that you see below (404,154) represents the best estimate of how many active licensees there are for nail care. We don’t believe that more than half of those licensed are actually practicing. For this reason, we don’t recommend dividing the number of nail techs by the number of salons to get a precise idea of salon staff size.

As always we love to hear from our readers who are interested in more data or additional insights into this data. We offer this information simply as one of many tools to help you understand and run your business.
