I just opened a new nail salon and can't find nail techs! HELP
#1
I just opened a new nail salon in Davie, FL and am having the hardest time finding nail techs. The plaza is soooo busy and I'm afraid that I will start losing clients because we don't have enough techs. Can anyone suggest how I can get more techs.
I posted on Craigslist, went to the local beauty schools, but that is still not getting me enough techs.

HELP...any advice is welcome.

Going through the schools is always a good option but, you have to do it consistently because otherwise they forget. Craigs list is also good, but you have to keep re-posting to stay on top. Put a sign in your window, banner out front on the street and ask your clients. I offered a finders fee to my clients one time and found an awesome technician.
I've done all of the above and timing IS everything. Patience is huge as well as frustrating. Send the positive vibes, they will come Smile

Thanks so much Big Grin I appreciate the tips...and you are right about the positive vibes. I'm excited and scared at the same time. You are right..consistent posting and following up will be key! The FINDERS FEE idea is GREAT...I never thought of that. I will try it.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Find out when the students will finish their programs and send the notices right before "graduation." They may be interested in the job but don't have their license--yet!

Thanks...will do. I've been calling the schools consistently the last few days to find out who's finishing. All the students have different graduation times.

I'll post again soon. Thanks.

i dont know if this is just arizona, but here you can contact the board and pay a small fee for the list of license holders. then just send a postcard to them inviting employment. ive never had to actively look for a job.

Finding new staff depends on lots of factors that owners must consider first: compensation, experience (if required), education, etc. Ideally, the size of the clientele should match the available staffing, not the other way around to avoid hiring out of desperation : )
