- Interests and basic knowledge about nail grooming

- Study on target customers (segmentation)
- Pricing strategies
- Shop location
Professional Tools to Keep the Business Going
After the preliminaries, it’s not just the table and a bunch of professional tools to keep the business going. Even if you’re only investing to the business, not physically being a manicurist, having some basic understanding of the procedures and skills is necessary; so that you could manage the hiring procedures and do quality management etc.
Below are some courses, which could equip you regarding this, and they are OPI certified!
On the other hand, outlining product types, product sources, pricing etc. needs to be taken into consideration . I would suggest using a few brands so clients will have more choices; yet most importantly it’s because different nail types would need different formulas (a maximum of 4 brands will be ideal otherwise it will be too difficult to control). In addition, please do spend some time and effort on nail care products as they are very important ancillary tools for making your service a complete and professional one.
