Difference between a nail technician and a manicurist

The other day I was talking to my friend and she mentioned that she always assumed that a manicurist and a nail technician do the same thing. Well not really. There is a big difference between the 2 jobs. One major difference between the 2 jobs is that it takes a high school diploma or equivalent to complete a manicurist course at a licensed cosmetology school. So what do both a manicurist and a nail technician have in common: - They cut and trim nails - They remove old polish - They apply nail polish - May perform both manicures and both pedicures So what does a manicure do other than a nail technician: - Waxing (including bikini wax and Brazilian wax) - Removing hair from any area of the body - Shaping eyebrows Also to note, a manicurist must be licensed. Ya you better be licensed if you are going to perform a bikini wax. Hurts like hell.
