Manicurists and pedicurists clean, shape, and beautify fingernails and toenails.
Manicurists and pedicurists must complete a state-approved cosmetology or nail technician program and then pass a state exam for licensure, which all states except Connecticut require.
Employment of manicurists and pedicurists is projected to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. New types of nail services, such as mini-sessions and mobile manicures and pedicures, may drive employment growth. High turnover and a growing number of nail salons will result in very good job opportunities.
