Statistics Nail salon services

Solidly recession-proof, three-quarters of salons said that business had either increased this year or stayed the same.
Nearly 23% said they’d seen a decline, and most blamed the economy: Either their area had been hard hit, gas prices
were affecting business, or clients simply didn’t have the money for elective expenses like nail care. Nonetheless, those experiencing good years did so by following sound business principles: when the going gets rough, they would promote, advertise, expand services, or find a new location.
