I went here last year under the nail technician program and it was a great hands on experience. They supplied me with all of the tools I’d need to be successful. I’m now a year in working at a nail shop with a steady clientele thanks to the job placement program. 10/10 recommended if you want to get licensed.


I graduated from the Academy and I had a great experience! All the educators Were very knowledgeable and taught me so much on many levels. Which I still carry with me to this day! The atmosphere, all the patrons I was able to work on, and how versatile the school is, was a great advantage. I appreciate how well prepared I was for state board And to get out in the field.

Extremely pleased with my progress in the Nail Tech Program at Academy of Hair Design! Signing up was the first step toward opening my own shop. Truly feel that every hour I'm in school I'm literally taking a step toward my business.


I did my research on all the hair schools in the Las Vegas valley and Academy Of Hair Design was the top pick, this school has some of the best teachers in the valley.

Academy of Hair Design has been an amazing experience. The teachers are informative and dedicated to what they do and want to see us all succeed. The environment is filling and educational but also fun. I would encourage anyone to at least check it out and see for yourself. Plenty of tools and lessons and also hands on experience.
