What Is Onycholysis?

Onycholysis is when the nail separates from the nail bed. It’s a very common condition, and one that, if treated quickly, poses no danger to clients.

Caring for the Elderly

Clients ages 8 to 80 enjoy salon services, but how techs handle an 8-year-old client will be different from how they handle her senior counterpart. Techs can develop a reputation for being the go-to girl among this expanding demographic by understanding the needs of an older client — and taking the time to meet those needs.

When Nails Separate

Onycholysis may look scary, but fortunately, a separated nail can re-attach itself. Nail techs can do their part by offering gentle, soothing services that help prevent further irritation to the affected nail.
