Manicurist Resume

A manicurist is a professional nail technician who works with clients to enhance the appearance of nails. The manicurist's duty involves giving manicures and pedicures. Among this, a manicurist can apply acrylic or gel nails or can repair damaged nails. A manicurist has to be detail oriented and needs to help clients to have healthy nails.


One of the most important duties of a manicurist refers to maintaining a clean work space. The manicurist disinfects the manicure equipment: nail and cuticle clippers, brushes for acrylic nails. This is necessary to reduce the risk of infections, so a manicurist must sanitize pedicure tubs between clients, to reduce the risk of contamination. Manicurists can work either as employees of a beauty salon or as independent contractors. Beyond the beauty techniques, a manicurist can also be responsible for scheduling appointments and performing bookkeeping.

While writing a manicurist resume, after mentioning the contact information and the objective statement, the next sections you have to focus on are skills, working experience and qualifications. In the abilities section, you can list the skills you have gained after working as a manicurist. For example: ability to provide great customer service or ability to apply many designs for nails.

In the working experience section, mention your previous jobs as well as the positions that you have held from the last job to the current ones. Describe what were your main duties and responsibilities. Mention duties like polishing and decorating nails, cleaning and shaping nails or keeping your working area clean. The final section of your Manicurist Resume has to be about your qualifications. There are no strict rules on how to practice this job, but the best thing is to have a Nail tech qualification or a specific Manicurists qualification.
