Lots of Broken Nails? Educate Your Clients on Nail Care

Do your regular clients come in for their manicures complaining of their nails breaking in between services? (I am definitely guilty of this!) Well, nail care goes way beyond the salon and it is important for you to inform them on how to properly take care of their nails outside of their regular manicure services. By educating them and offering products/items they can use at home, you will find yourself with a lot more happier clients that keep coming back!

Some tips for preventing nail breakage:
  • We all know biting our nails is just a bad habit, but it is also very detrimental to your nails! It leaves the nails thin and weak and they are more likely to get caught on other surfaces and break due to the jagged and uneven edges. When informing your clients of this, offer to apply nail art, which will discourage them for wanting to bite off the fun designs! =)
  • Make sure to keep your retail area stocked full of buffers and fine-grain grit files for your clients to use at home. In between services, your clients nails are going to grow and nails grow unevenly and can cause weakness in some spots. Remember to  let them know to file in ONE direction. (filing in both directions will tear the nails)
  • Keeping the nails painted at all times, whether it regular polish, gel polish, or hard gel will keep the nails thicker, making it more resistant against breakage. Also, inform your clients to not pick at the polish or gel polish, as this will cause the nails to become weak.
  • Use nail strengthening treatments as a base coat or top coat!
  • Keep nails strong and hydrated with cuticle oil. use it during the services and suggest they use it at home every day as well. This is another item you'll definitely want to keep fully stocked in your retail area. Quick and easy up-sell to your clients!
  • Constantly washing hands can dry them out. Let your client know to always apply lotions after they have washed their hands and to try and avoid getting their hands wet when doing dishes or cleaning. Its a great idea to retail the hand lotion you use on your clients during manicures and let them know they can purchase it as well!

With these simple tips, you are sure to see less and less nail breakage from your clients! =)
