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.

Time to refresh your skin before the New Year! 🍊 Have you tried our acne facial? 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Like any part of your skincare regimen, facials are best and most effective when you get them on a regular basis.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We recommend once a month. 
Why? 
✨Every 28 days your skin cells turn over. 
✨Receiving monthly facials ensures that your skin will be healthy for years to come, not just for one day.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is a great 2023 goal, stay on top of your glowing skin!
