2022 summer nail trends for your salon
The summer months are a popular time for salons across the county. With holidays and summer parties on the horizon, everyone wants to feel their best and there is no better way to do this than a fresh set of nails to treat yourself to. Nail trends come and go, therefore a salon business needs to stay on top of, and be able to offer all the latest trends to a high standard. From summer pastels colours to unique designs, next time a client comes in to request gel nail polish you can offer what’s trending, and something that they will love. Here are a few of the top trends for summer 2022.
This has been coming after the French manicure – not only is this also classic and sophisticated, but it is super modern and trendy for this coming summer. In simple terms, it is the art of placing a colour in a half-moon shape, at the base of the nail. This gives you the opportunity to play around with a variety of different colour combinations, from the minimalist appeal to the bright and bold.
Bright, block colours
A new trend that is dominating the 2022 summer fashion industry, is colour blocking. Although this isn’t a new concept, it has become increasingly popular with high-end fashion designers, with fast fashion producing many replicas. Why not make sure your client’s nails fit the trend? Not only are these simple and quick to do, but they also stand out and look amazing against a variety of skin tones and complexions.
Think cute, nature, and good vibes – there are so many options when it comes to nail art. Brush up on a few popular requests, such as hearts, flowers and swirls. Don’t be surprised if more clients start asking for clouds too, they are giving off total summer vibes this year!
A clear base is the perfect blank slate for nail art or even a simple coloured tip. Building on your natural nails, creative designs can sit over a clear base coat/acrylic nail, leaving the nail art to stand out. A clear base can also extend the time that the manicure lasts, as nail growth can not be seen as easily as a coloured base.
A trend that will never disappear – wearable, cute and gorgeous, there is a pastel colour out there for everyone. Whether this is baby blue, mint green or a stunning pale pink. They are the perfect colours for spring and summer and can be worn in a variety of ways. If you are unsure at first, why not swap out your French manicure tip for a pastel-coloured tip to change up the look!
