Hi Guys,
I'm totally new to this site (btw, it's really helpful!). I'm about to qualify as Creative Nail Tech L & P but need some help/advice.
I'm located in South Wales and desperately looking for opportunities to get started, ie. job or space/table to rent. I'm fairly new to the area so don't have a great deal of contacts. Does anyone know of anyone looking to rent space or looking for a nail tech? Or where to look...I've looked everywhere I can possibly think of and more but....nada!!!! :eek:

Also, what do you think is better...renting space, being employed or working from home/mobile?

Sorry about all the questions but am really stuck! I'd appreciate anyone giving me some tips here - thank you!

Hi Laurie and welcome to this site,

I can't help you in where to look as i don't know your area but i can give you my advise on where to start,

When i qualified i started mobile and it just didn't work!!.... because i didn't have experience...

I then went to work in a salon, it was the best thing i ever did, as i was doing clients all day every day and i had as steady in come coming in to do more training.

I move up to manager in the salon and got experience with the other side of the business and in the end i had decided that i had gone as far as i could in a salon there was no more moving up so i decided to set up on my own.

I was employed for 2 years and now i have had my own business for 2 years as well, and i love it!!

If i were you i would work in a salon for a bit and the think about it, it is so hard to start on your own with no clientele no experience behind you and no reputation yet.

I hope this helps you xx

Hi Kirsty (Scratchers),

Thank you for all the info! It's really helpful.

I was kinda thinking I might have to go down the route of being employed by a Salon to gain the experience first which I am happy to do...but...I'm struggling to find work in my area. I've written off to loads of salons etc and hoping to hear something back soon!

Hi Jayne (JDs),

I had a look in the Geekbay and there was nothing for this area, however, I am going to post something on there hoping that I might have someone contact me with a position available! So thank you very much!

Laurie
