It was a tougher month for nail techs after the success of the Christmas period. Although treatment business was up, with an average of 23 manicures and pedicures performed per week in salons and spas, retail sales of nail products stayed on par with January 2016. However, many of you said Jessica and OPI do the best gift sets for retail.
Gel-polish is your most popular nail treatment with older clientele, followed closely by luxury manicures and long-wear polish. Offering on-trend services is important to you, which is why 31% of you will be adding dip systems to your menu this year. For SS17 nail art inspiration and tutorials, turn to page 95.
