Students study nails, hair, skin, and their related care. Students are grounded in theory before practicing procedures in a lab setting, using mannequins and live models for manipulative skill practice.
Particular attention is paid to applying concepts associated with bacteriology, sanitation, nail disorders, anatomy and physiology, and safety. NYS Certification enables them to open their own business or work in a beauty salon.
