Hello All,

Just out of interest wanted to know how long it takes you to do a pedicure?

Just standard pedicure including;
  • soak feet
  • cuticle work
  • cut & file nails
  • foot scrub
  • hard skin removal
  • massage
  • varnish
How long do you spend on the foot massage?
How much do you charge?

Love Emma x:hug:x

Hi, it usually takes me an hour to an hour and 15 mins.to complete the steps you described. My timing depends on how much sloughing of callouses I need to do. I've not timed my massage but I've never had any complaints. :)

For a full on CND Raw Earth pedicure, with Callus Peel, I'm looking at about 90mins. I charge £35 for the pedi, and either £15 or £20 for the Callus Peel.
For a "standard" pedi I charge £25 and it takes about 40 mins.

A standard pedicure with the steps you describe will take me 45 minutes (£20) , a full pedi with mask and longer massage I will take up to 1hr (£24).

45 mins to 1 hour, cost £22 - £30 depending on the type of pedicure - basic, luxury or callus buster.

45 mins for a standard and 1 hour for a luxury. I dont have a specific time that I spend on each part of the treatment. If I need to concentrate on removing dead skin then I will cut the massage down, unless of course the client isnt bothered about the dead skin xxx

1hr - Basic pedi
1.5hr - Spa pedi

**Same as kylieb, I spend more time focusing on the problem areas and will cut my time in others.
**You should charge taking into consideration your product costs, and the ambiance of your spa/treatment room (if you are working from home, obviously you would charge less than a five star hotel).
 

basic pedicure (as you described) 45 min , 55 USD
spa pedicure with a mask wrapped in plastic then placed in heated boots, hot towel treatment, and a longer massage 1 hr , 75 USD

Thanks for all your replies,
I too can take anything between 1 - 1 1/2 hours, it really depends on how much hard skin they have and cuticle work to do.
I am really trying to stick to an hour though,
I charge £18 for my pedicures and £20 for french varnish!
