Get a [More Ergonomic] Grip

According to Young Nails’ Greg Salo, the most ergonomic way to do this is with an over-grip.

How do you hold your client’s hand when using an electric file? According to Young Nails’ Greg Salo, the most ergonomic way to do this is with an over-grip. “The technique keeps tension out of your wrists and prevents your clients from wanting to look up at their fingers while you’re working,” he says. “The key is having your clients sit at an angle so you don’t need to bend your wrists. The other advantage is cutting in smile lines during a backfill. Your wrists don’t bump into each other and you are able to cut from one side to the other without skipping or stuttering.”
