I chose the Nail Technician and Salon Administrator course in order to turn my passion and hobby into a profession. Thanks to the excellent course, and the knowledge and skills I obtained, I was hired by a well-known salon even before I had passed my exams. Not even a year after finishing the course, I am a highly sought after Nail Technician with friendships made in College that will last for life. Dreams do come true, when you do that first step.
