HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS?

Our Manicure program blends in-depth classroom instruction, hands-on training and one-on-one guidance from teachers who really care about you and your success.
The first half of your Manicuring program consists of lectures, demonstrations, practicing on practice fingers and practice hands, testing your knowledge on all the course subjects. The class sizes allow each student to receive individual attention from our teachers who will challenge you creatively and technically.
After completion of 150 hours, passing the written and practical midterm evaluations, recommendation of your instructor and providing a physician’s certificate, you will advance to the Senior status with a Student Work Permit issued by the N.J. State Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling.
In the second half of your program you will get even more hands-on in our Student Salon. While performing clinic services on public, you will build your self-esteem and knowledge to succeed in your future career, sharpen your skills through additional lectures, advanced demonstrations and salon management.
Once you complete the required 300 training hours you will be fully prepared to pass your N.J. State Board exam and have the tools and confidence to start a new career as a licensed Manicurist.
