What will you learn
Hollywood Beauty Academy will prepare you from start to finish to work in a nail salon or to start your own practice. Every module begins with theory, followed by hands-on training. The modules consists of: Anatomy, Manicuring, Pedicuring, Nail Resin Systems, Gel, Basic Nail Art, Sanitation and Salon Management.
No prior experience needed. Prospective students must pass 10th grade English before enrolling. A high school diploma or GED is not required.
180 hours. If you attend classes two days per week from 9am to 9pm, you will complete the course in 2 months (9 weeks).
English class instruction runs Monday to Tuesday from 9am to 9pm. Spanish class instruction runs Wednesday and Thursday from 9am to 5pm. Students can work with their instructor to set their schedules (ex. if students can only attend during the day or only at night).
At the end of the course, you will test with our lead instructors. You do not need to sit for a state exam.
$2,720. This includes 2 months of instruction, a nail kit, apron, all state board license and registration fees. We use the latest edition of Milady’s Nail Technology textbook which can be purchased via Amazon. The ISBN number is listed below in the FAQ.
Only $500 is due at enrollment. The balance of tuition can be spread out over the 2 month program. This equates to $730 per month until graduation. You will get a $200 discount on the program if you signup and pay in full using cash, check or Zelle.
Federal student grants and loans do not apply for any 180 hour Nail Technician program in the State of Florida. This is because federal funding only applies to programs above 600 hours. 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.
