A manicure in progress

Our Nail Technology program is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as professional nail technicians. With hands-on training, industry-standard tools and techniques, and experienced instructors, this program prepares students for a successful career in the beauty industry.

Our 400-hour, 14-week program is the foundation you’ll use to pass the state board exam and find a rewarding position as a Nail Technician.

This program provides you with a professional manicurist toolkit, an in-house student salon, a team of knowledgeable instructors, and everything you’ll need to learn and develop your skills.

You'll begin the program by working on a nail trainer hand. Once you have completed our fundamental section, you'll start working with guests in our student salon. Our instructors will guide you through the process, including the initial consultation with the client, the services you'll provide, and tips to help build your clientele.

Whether you are just starting out or looking to expand your existing skillset, Grondin's College of Cosmetology's Nail Technology program is an excellent choice for anyone interested in pursuing a career in nail care.
