The nail industry has been booming in recent years, and this is mostly because of the influence of social media & celebrities. Nowadays everyone is craving a fresh acrylic set, as well as a neat manicure. If you want to become a nail tech, here are the basics that you should know:
The best qualification to have is the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Nail Technology. This diploma could lead to employment whether it is in a salon or as a freelance nail technician. This is because it is fully insurable and recognised by the UK government. You can work in the beauty industry straight away as a junior nail technician or choose to develop your skills with further training.
If you have the VTCT Level 3 diploma, you will know how to do nail enhancements e.g. gel, acrylic, forms and electric filing. You will also be taught the theory behind each nail enhancement process and practical skills. This course also focuses quite a lot on pedicures, manicures, as well as any skin or nail infections, as well as fungus.
The best part about a Level 3 diploma?
You can open up a salon and run your own business! You can be your own boss!
