Nail technicians perform manicures, pedicures and other beauty procedures to clients’ fingernails and toenails. These processes involve removing polish, cleaning, trimming, filing and buffing nails. They may also work to reduce calluses and massage and moisturize hands and feet. In addition to these services, technicians also discuss the various nail treatments with clients and recommend nail and skin care products.
The manicuring/nail technology program provides competency-based knowledge, scientific/artistic principles, and hands-on fundamentals associated with the nail technology industry. The curriculum provides a simulated salon environment which enables students to develop manipulative skills.
Graduates should be prepared to take the North Carolina Cosmetology State Board Licensing Exam, and upon passing, be licensed and qualify for employment in beauty and nail salons, as a platform artist, and in related businesses.
