Description: Nails Technology is the study of nails and their associated structures, hand, foot, and nail diseases and disorders; as well as manicuring, pedicuring and artificial nail application and maintenance.

Format: Students progress through the course in four levels: freshman, sophomore, junior and senior. To progress from one level to the next, students must complete the required hours, required operations, written evaluations and practical evaluations for each level.

Freshman level is three weeks and is spent in a classroom setting where students learn the basics in manicuring and nail extensions and practice on each other and models. Students are given written and practical evaluations at the end of each week.

After successful completion of the 3 weeks of freshman classes, students are assigned to the clinic floor to begin practice and practical skills and customer service skills. Once assigned to the clinic, students attend other classes each week.

Throughout the instruction, we teach a wide variety of classes on artificial nails, including fiberglass, acrylic, gel, and many others.

In addition to the above mentioned classes, students also attend half- and full-day classes at the sophomore, junior, and senior levels to increase their skills in both cosmetology and business and in preparation for written exams and for the state licensing exam.
