Onychoschizia, or splitting nails, are a very common presentation in the salon. The split can occur horizontally or vertically, but usually occur near the free edge. Peeling nails is a horizontal split of the layers of the nail poast the free edge, and vertical separation is usually what is referred to as splitting nails.

Splitting nails are common in your clients, but they shouldn’t be a major concern for you. You will still be able to give these clients regular services, and you can even help them recover from a temporary split using your skills with wraps or overlays.
