Licensed Nail Technicians

A nail technician, by law, must hold either a nail technician license or a cosmetology license. What most people don’t know is that in order to hold these licenses a nail technician as to take 350 hours of coursework, apply for and pass the state exam, apply for a license, and get 10 hours of coursework in every two years to keep the license valid. A cosmetologist has the same requirements but because they are also able to do hair and skin service, their course requirements are 1500 hours. Next time you are in a salon, make sure that your technician is licensed because their skill go much deeper than the beautiful polish they put on top.
