English class instruction runs Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 9pm. Spanish class instruction runs Thursday to Friday from 9am to 9pm. Students are free to set their timing (daytime only, nighttime only, 2 or 3 days per week only) based on their schedule.

Only $500 is due at enrollment. The balance of tuition can be spread out over the 2 month program. This equates to $545 per month until graduation. If you decide to pay for the whole program at signup, you get a $200 discount.
We do not offer federal student loans or financial aid. However, most students will attest that this program is one of the best bang-for-your-buck programs in Orlando. Most students recoup their tuition within two months after graduation when working in a salon.
With a nail technician license, you are ready to work at a nail salon or to start your own salon. Once you have secured your license, it is highly recommended that you continue with your Full Specialist license as many nail salons value the versatility of employees who can offer brow and eye lash services at their salon.

When can I start?
For example, if you start in on week 3 of the current wheel, you would complete until week 8 and then finish when the class rotates past week 2.
I can only attend days or nights. Can I still enroll?
If you are bilingual, you could attend days-only from Tuesday to Friday and complete the program within 10 weeks by attending both English and Spanish classes.
Do you offer financial aid?
What is the ultimate cost versus a school that offers financial aid
At Hollywood Beauty Academy, the Nail Technician program costs $1,790. The total cost of our program is cheaper than schools that offer financial aid because the Pell grant does not cover the total cost.
You can enroll in the program with a $500 deposit. Then it is $516 per month until full payment is made or until you graduate.
