Grow Your Career as a Manicurist or Nail Technician
To become a nail technician specific training is required. There are two main ways of getting into nail artistry. Both of these options are through a beauty school or recognised learning institution with licensed instructors. With your first option, you may complete a nail technician course within a larger training package such as a beautician or cosmetology program. This option will also allow you several other career opportunities. However, if you are interested solely in nail artistry, there are standalone courses available. Regardless of your choice, you will learn how to give clients manicures and pedicures and apply a variety of nail techniques, as well as learn a range of hygiene practices to keep you and your clients safe.
For those looking for an alternative training option before they commit to a licensed course, there are countless videos and tutorials online that demonstrate effective nail artistry tips and techniques. These can give you a stepping stone into the industry before you officially begin, and serve as an ongoing resource to help grow your skills as an artist.
