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 infull 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.

Kelly Jo McCarthy

"I go to The Spa School. It’s a cosmetology school. You have to make an appointment. I was there on April 2015. Sometimes the service is great and sometimes it is, I wouldn’t say horrible because they are students. I was there April tenth. At Christmas time they give out gift certificates like buy one and you get two for the price of one. The cost is usually about $35. Because I bought them in December it is worth it. They do nail pedicures."
