Nail Technology


Something you can nail? Want to get your foot in the door?

Becoming a nail tech is a great way to get into the salon industry quickly. In just 10 short weeks, Ohio State School of Cosmetology and The Spa School can take you from beginner to an artificial nail specialist, an educator, or even a spa hand and foot care specialist. Our graduates work in full service salons and in salons exclusive to hand and foot treatments. If you enjoy attention to detail, a fast-paced environment and making people look good from “tip to toe,” this may just be a match made in heaven!

In your time as a student, you will learn to care for the hands and feet. Through the theory of design and the technical aspects of hand and foot care, our program provides a hands-on approach, literally. We start with teaching a variety of manicuring and pedicuring services, but quickly move beyond the basics.

You will also learn all of the advances in nail enhancements, such as acrylic nails, tips, overlays, silk wraps, gel nails and nail art. We even touch on the business knowledge required to own your salon. A combination of classroom instruction and practical training, will allow you to gain the skills necessary to excel as a Nail Technician, manage your own facility, and pass your State Board licensing examination.


"Got a perm today!! Absolutely love it and of course I am going back for my hair care."

Laurie Strike

"My facial got off to a rocky start because my esthetician was double booked. Because my schedule no longer permitted me to be a "regular" (although I had been frequenting the establishment for almost 10 years & have brought them new clients), I was bumped and they had to scramble to find one for me. Then she needed to prepare my room & procure my products. If it were not for this 15-30 minute delay, then my facial went smoothly. Facial complete with hand & foot massage, extractions & use of high frequency machine."

Margie Toy

"Had a facial with Christina and it was awesome..."

Teresa Prince
