If you're looking for nail salons or local transgender friendly nail salons you're in the right place. TransFriendly lists thousands of businesses around the world over that welcome and support transgender and non-binary people, including specialists in trans nail salons.
In the US, the mandatory tipping rate is usually around 15%-30%, so itu2019s a good idea to have a quote from your chosen salon’s price list so you can be prepared with enough money to tip.
In the UK however these rules don’t exist. The technicians will charge you accordingly, so it’s completely up to you whether you’d like to add a tip if you’ve decided you’re happy with the quality of work. If you do choose not to, a recommendation to your friends and a kind comment on their TransFriendly profile will really go a long way!
There’s a wide variety of options to chose from at nail salons, and it can be quite a daunting experience if it’s your first time! The most popular selections at a salon are usually gel, or acrylic nails. Acrylic is generally applied to a false nail extension added to your nail, and gel can be done the same way, or applied to your natural nail.
Our lovely trans friendly businesses can be available with ideas to guide you in the right direction of what you’re looking for, just have an idea of the length and colours you’d like and they can help you with the rest!
This can vary between customers depending on how active your lifestyle is and how likely your nails are to be damaged! As long as you take care of your acrylics, and head to your nail technician every two to three weeks for fill-ins, your set should last between six and eight weeks.
This can also vary between people, depending on how active your lifestyle is and how likely your nails are to be damaged! Gel polish is completely unlike regular nail polish and needs to the UV or LED light to form a hard layer. On average, gel nails last two to three weeks, but this can be longer with good care taken.
