I’m just about to graduate from esthetics school in Canada. I would like to open a small salon that focuses mainly on pedicures. I’m at a loss as to where to start, beginning with what products to use. I would like to offer at least two different product lines. I would like my pedicures to make a difference (detox, make feet feel relaxed and smooth and happy). Any suggestions?
I would like to know if it is better to perform pedicures with or without gloves? What types of infections or skin disorders can a nail technician get on her hands from infected clients? Is soaking with an antibacterial, antifungal, cross-contamination-preventing soak enough to protect our precious hands?
Is it true that some callus buildup can be caused by a fungus? I have noticed that some callus buildup is flaky and rolls off the client’s foot with just a touch of my hand. Please advise how I might treat this problem.
