Our Manicure course teaches you to perform classic manicures, French manicures and spa manicures as well as gel polish applications. Explore a variety of associated treatments, including exfoliation, paraffin wax and massage techniques for hands and arms. Study current nail art trends. Classes occasionally feature industry guest speakers and representatives from nail care product lines who help you become more familiar with the esthetics industry. Practice what you learn by performing services – on classmates, models and clients – in the classroom and in the school spa. Public health standards, personal appearance, professionalism, etiquette and communication are integral parts of this course.
Course Delivery Method:
This course uses a blended format that combines classroom instruction, online learning (via Blackboard Learn) and the spa environment. It starts with a mandatory online Blackboard Learn orientation.
This course requires you to work on other students and to let other students work on you in order to gain the skills you need to work on models and clients. You will also be required to bring your own model on occasion and for practical exams and to purchase our manicure/pedicure kit from the Makeup and Esthetics Student Store. This esthetician course has a mandatory dress code.
You must have completed grade 12 English. (An approved equivalent is also acceptable.)
