For Spa Manicure/Pedicure you should charge 30% more than your basic Manicure/Pedicue.
For CND Shellac you charge 50% more than the basic Manicure/Pedicure.

It's difficult as it varies from area to area, what I would do is have a look around at local salons and see what there prices are like.
You want to be competitive but not to cheap if you are using quality products then you should be charging accordingly.

Check out what your local salons are charging or mobile peeps (do a google search). Then match their prices but bear in mind your experience level. hth

Something else to consider.....

Just because you're new doesn't mean you're not brilliant already:big grin:

If you decide what you would ideally like to be charging when you feel fully confident and have more experience and have built a good core clientele, then you should make this your pricing structure NOW! Give an opening offer for a month or two and stress that it's only for a limited period of time, state the date your offer runs out on your price list, advertising, etc.

Hopefully you will be so busy that you gain confidence and experience much quicker than you think!

thanks for the vote of confidence fiona! i have a little way to go yet though!
good idea about setting the prices and then just doing introductory offer as its always hard to up your prices especially if your a bit of a wimp like me when it comes to charging! lol x

look at pricing in your area, look at cheaper salons and more expensive and price yourself where you want to be!! as said before then for a month or so give a great opening offer, its so hard to put prices up but very easy to give fab offers...i always offer fab discounts when i bring a new product in just to re coup some money and bring clients in to try that specific product hth

In my opinion that's too cheap. Your shellac Mani should be at least £25.

Thanks little Kate its so hard as I keep thinking do I need to keep prices down because im not experienced. Maybe those prices as an introductory offer then for few months while I get going? Really appreciate your advice thank you x

I think you should put your shellac up to £25 but you also need to check pricing In your area. I charge £25 for fingers or toes but include removal.

Lower prices also mean it doesn't give you much leeway for special offers. Everyone loves a special offer. I may do a special offer once a month if I feel something isn't selling as well or I would like more practise at something if it's a new treatment.

Hi i am just at the training stage doing mani and pedi but i research my local salons and i feel their pricing is cheap for shellac they offer a manicure using shellac for 20 pounds and 15 pounds for manicure without out shellac.
So i will have to go a bit cheaper which is a shame as i don't feel i be making much x
