Manicure Course Overview

This course is for beginners and existing therapists looking at adding manicure as a salon treatment. We also recommend this course as a foundation to our Gel Nail courses.

Our Manicure course is designed to enable candidates to offer a professional manicure service to the public. Manicures have always featured as a popular service in both beauty and hairdressing salons.

Manicures are a very popular and relaxing treatment to do; you will learn how to adapt this treatment from a basic manicure to a luxury treatment including exfoliation, masks, heated mittens and paraffin wax.
