What’s Manicurist Training Really Like?

What’s Manicurist Training Really Like?

You might remember gossiping while painting your friends’ nails at slumber parties. Or swiping on some nail color on your way out the door, hoping they don’t smudge. You probably already know that professional manicures take painting nails to another level. The care, precision, and process all lead to a better experience and more reliable results. To be a professional manicurist, you need professional manicurist training.

Be A Professional Manicurist

It’s OK to admit your favorite things to do are primp and make yourself and your friends feel pretty! With the proper preparation and a good dose of work ethic, even nailcare can turn into part of a rewarding job. Preparing for a cosmetology career takes more than keeping a steady hand with a polish brush. Manicures and pedicures require knowledge of specific tools and processes. You need to know more about tools, hands, and nails than how to make them look pretty.

Manicurist Training

You might have been painting nails since you were five years old. But even with years of home experience, you still need to take classes to do it professionally. Manicurists need to know about safety and cleanliness. They also need to understand anatomy and what makes healthy nails and hands. Since you’ll be working as a professional, it helps to know how a business works. Being your best professional self will help you in job interviews and can advance your career in your future. Here are some examples of the classes that help train you to be a manicurist.

  • History and Professional Life Skills
  • Infection Control, Practices and Principles
  • General Anatomy & Physiology
  • Basic Massage Manipulation
