The course here are not videos so if you struggle to read this then you may struggle to take our course and to sit for the state exams to get a license to sell nail services in Virginia. Most students finishing our course will not be able to enjoy a nail service in most nail salons ever again.
those on payment plans can only book 1 day with the down payment and each additional day will require another monthly payment paid. Students on payment plans can't take exams until the course is paid for (even if done).
students can book their class online, by text, in class or by email. A reminder is sent two days before to cancel or reshedule a class online. Less than 24 hour cancellations will cost $50 to rebook. Exception to weather issues.
We do offer a in school course that takes 10-15 days mainly for ESL students. Ask if you are interested. It does cost about $1,000 more and is tougher with lots of homework!!
After finishing the course (and getting your license) attend professional training classes and trade shows to advance your skills especially in Acryilcs, Gels, Dip, Drills and Art. Pro classes/trade shows require a state nail license.
Enrolling after Sept 2022 will cost about $500 more to take the newly updated course with more attendance.
Students living outside Virginia
Students can be multi-state licensed especially if they live near state borders and want to work on both sides.
Students licensed in Virginia can only sell nail services in Virginia but they can transfer their license into other states based on their regulations to sell nail care in other states.
We have had students from all over the US attending our course to become multi licensed.
Yes students that live outside of VA do have to drive if they want to attend this location, otherwise call beauty schools in your area to attend their school.
