How long does it take you? Mani/pedi

#1
Hi, I just started working at my salon about 4 weeks ago..and as everyone in this industry or mostly everyone ;) I'm a perfectionist..

Even when I do a basic manicure and a pedicure I make sure the client doesn't feel like I'm rushing through their service to get their money,and i've had a couple compliment me and tell me that they like how I am,and that i don't rush through it like some other people they've been too

But I was wondering how long does it take you to do a basic manicure (reg polish) and pedicture (regular polish) I'd like to see if i'm taking TOO long :o

It all depends on how much talking I do, if they have a cup of tea or coffee, but all in all about an hour and a half for me, that can be french polish on both and art. If your clients are happy that's great.

Hi
Basic manicure, shape, cuticle work and polish - 30 min ( incl colour or french)
full mani - shape, cuticle work, scrub, massage, paint - 45 min
pedi - if the feet are decent - basic pedi - nails, cuticle work, foot filing, scrub, massage, and paint - 45 min
If feet are in a bad state and they need sanding - that's my secret weapon its 1 h.

It takes me 30 to 45 mins to do a mani and an hour to do a spa pedi, sometimes sooner depending on the condition of the feet. Love doing the combo cuz then they sit and dry in the pedi chair. When I'm doing a mani, they sit for the whole hour, ugghhh.

Sandy, if feet are bad (ie) tons of hard skin.. it takes me about 60 mins for a pedi, this includes soak, scrub, nail shape, cuticle work, removal of hard skin, massage, polish. I don't do an express version, I just do 1 type of pedi & that's what's listed above & I charge £18, I'm swapping from opi polish to shellac shortly so price will go up!

Manicures a quite a bit quicker as you save 15 odd minutes not getting hard skin off, pedi's are my favourite though love turning minging feet Into beautys lol x

It takes me 45min-1hr. I always block of one hour for my clients. I really take care of them and pay close attention to the details. They love the attention. If I do a spa mani or pedi it's longer. I do an extensive massage good callus care and incorporate fresh aroma infused steamed towels to the foot and leg or hand and arm to lock in moisture mask. I block off 1hr 15min -1hr 30min for spa pedi
