How to start a nail business in UK?

To become a nail technician, you need to complete an accredited training course so you can obtain insurance to work with real clients. During your nail technician courses, you will also learn the necessary information and skills to be able to carry out treatments professionally and safely.

You can get your nail technician certification through a variety of training options. NTC offers a range of nail technician courses that are designed to suit every individual, providing the tips, tools and skills required to meet the challenges of an ever-changing, highly competitive job market.

Our team of qualified trainers will ensure you benefit from the best-accredited nail technician courses the nail industry has to offer.

NTC is recognised by one of the leading accrediting bodies in the Associated Beauty Therapists (ABT), meaning we are approved up and down the country.

Once you have completed your nail technician course and have the certification, it is important to continue to build on your skills and keep learning, so you can be the best nail technician you can be.

To attract clients for your beauty business, you need to build a portfolio and showcase your work in the best way.

Establishing your business

Before you start offering services to real clients, it’s a good idea to sit down and think about where you want your business to go and who your dream clients will be.

To register your business you may need certain licences and permits. Make sure to check with your local council to see what information they need to know. You will also need to register as a sole trader (self-employed) to pay taxes on your beauty business income.

Once your business is registered, you need to think about where you will work from. You can work from home, from a salon or be a mobile nail technician.

To offer any treatments, you will need the necessary equipment and supplies.
