Manicuring & Advanced Program

So you want to be a “Nail Tech”?

Nail technology continues to be a fast growing area in the beauty, spa and fashion industry. A nail tech (or manicurist) uses techniques and products to help achieve and maintain healthy and attractive hands and feet.

Taught by our highly trained instructor (who is certified by OPI) you’ll learn with as much hands-on, learn by doing and one-on-one instruction as possible. In just a short time you’ll learn how to perform manicures, pedicures, hand and arm massage, artificial nails, gels, wraps, tips and nail art.

This dynamic curriculum along with our Best in Business (Advanced Program) all in a gorgeous state-of-the-art facility are just some of the reasons why successful salon owners call us almost every week looking to hire our graduates.

And if you compare us to the competition, our program takes only 10 weeks (theirs is 16 weeks) and our tuition is $2,000.00 (theirs is $2,800.00).

So put yourself on the “fast-track” to a great future and call us today!
