Your prices are good, concentrate in bringing more customers, if they want an updraged service you can increase your prices.

I think pricing is a very personal thing. It all comes down to:

  • How good are you?
  • How much in demand are your services?
  • Who else in your area does what you can do?
  • What products do you use?
I think personally, I don't want clients coming to me because im "cheap", but beacsue Im good and they like what I do.

Take a scout round at other salons in your area, look on the web and in local publications for an indicator of the prices in your area and set yours accordingly.

I agree with the points Sarah has raised also, I would include hard skin removal in the pedi & luxury pedi this is one of the main things in a pedicure imho

Definitely go by what your area charges. I looked at salons, mobile and beauty places, then took a middle ground when i first started out.

Now i charge more than some salons in my area, but despite the fact i am mobile, i charge for the fact i offer what a lot of other salons/mobile don't, like colour fades, 3D nail art and encased acrylic art.

It is all about what you offer and experience.

If you forsee a lot of people coming in and wanting the "treatments" for 7, I would suggest lowering the price another dollar/pound for both to 12.. This way, you can tell them, do you want your pedi done too? it's 2 off when you have your hands done..

If that makes sense! I know, I would definitely opt to get it all if I thought it was cheaper when usually getting just my hands!

Your prices are good, they steer well clear of cheap and cheerful and that's a good thing.

Love your website too btw.
