First and foremost, the program is designed to provide practical exposure to the role of a nail technician.

This exposure allows students to gain a deeper understanding of the profession and to develop the necessary skills and techniques to succeed in the industry.

In addition, the program is designed to advise and encourage students meaningfully. Our instructors are experienced professionals passionate about their work and committed to helping students succeed. They provide individualized attention and support to each student, offering guidance and advice to help them achieve their goals.

We also strive to acquaint students with current technical and creative information when available.
