Hi my name is Gerri Parker. I am an aspiring nail tech currently taking classes in Georgia. We received an assignment to gather information about other nails not located in Georgia and to do a report on them. I have sent out e mails but none of the salons have been wiling to help out so i figured i would try to post on here and see if some people wouldn't mind giving up a little bit of their time to help me out. I have provided the questions below Smile Feel free to e mail me if it is any easier or just would not like this info posted online ([email protected])

Gerri,

I can see why you're not getting much in the way of responses. Speaking as an educator, this is not a good way to go about getting this info. Even if you did get responses, your info would be just anecdotal. Rather than reaching out to individuals,you should grab a copy of Nails Magazine's most recent Big Book (http://issuu.com/bobit_nails/docs/nails_stats2011-2012) which has tons of information and statistics about the business. You should also read the last year's worth of Nails Magazine for additional info. You can also look up the Bureau of Labor Statistics for data on the profession.


we have to pick places that are not located in the same state as us which makes it hard from the get go but people just don't want to take the time to answer any of the questions... even when i call places and they haven't even heard the questions yet they just simply say they are too busy. The teachers wont let us use magazines to gather the info they want us to talk to an individual :\ but thank u for the info it is something that i will check out just for myself if nothing else Smile

Maybe you can contact the trade associations and licensing boards of nearby states. I think it is unlikely that you can cold call places and get answers.
