Corona Campus Offers New Nail Technician Program

March ’13

Nail Technician program at Salon Success AcademySalon Success Academy is now offering a nail technician program at its new campus location in Corona, California. Students can complete their training quickly, in just 400 hours, and be prepared to pass their State Board exam and start working as a licensed nail technician once they graduate. Students receive their training from knowledgeable instructors, Ms. Stephanie and Ms. Vicky, using new equipment and high quality nail products.

  • New manicuring tables and lights
  • Pedicure basins with water jets
  • Gel manicuring lamps
  • Paraffin wax warmers
  • OPI nail polish back bar

Guest educators often come into the school to give nail demonstrations. A guest educator from Tech Nail Concepts, Esmerita Alvarez, showed the students how to do three-dimensional nail art using acrylic. The students then had to incorporate 3D nail art design into a romantic-themed manicure for Valentine’s Day.

“The competitions are fun! It’s a great way to express yourself and push yourself creatively. These are not your everyday nails,” Jenny Woodall said, a nail technician student who graduated in March.

Michelle Tretola graduated just a few days after Jenny. She enrolled in the nail technician program because she loved doing nail art and she could finish her training quickly. She also liked the thought of working flexible hours and still being able to care for her young children. She learned about the new Salon Success Academy in Corona and waited until the school opened to enroll.

Jenny Woodall (L) and Michelle Tretola (R) graduated from the nail technician program in March“The school is really nice! Everything is really clean and it looks just like a real salon. The program is new, but it’s growing really quickly. Every day we have more and more clients coming in to get their nails done,” Michelle said.

The students said they adore Ms. Stephanie, the nail technician instructor who teaches them practical and theory. They also love learning from Ms. Vicky, the Assistant Campus Director at the Corona campus, who worked in the field as a licensed nail technician for 12 years. She’s always showing the students tricks of the trade, like how to use monomers to change the color of the acrylic.

They give you confidence and help you become the best you can be,” Jenny Woodall, a nail technician student said. “They’ve done a great job preparing me for work after I graduate. I definitely feel like I’ll be able to get a job now.”
