Employment of manicurists and pedicurists in the state of Maryland is projected to grow 18 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. New types of nail services, such as mini-sessions and mobile manicures and pedicures, may drive employment growth. High turnover and a growing number of nail salons will result in very good job opportunities.
