How to Become a Manicurist or Nail Technician

Each state has slightly different requirements you need to meet in order to obtain a nail technician or manicurist license. To obtain a nail technician license in Kansas and Missouri, you must be at least 17 years old and have a high school diploma or GED. Once you’ve met these two requirements, it’s time to enroll in beauty school!

The first step to becoming a nail technician is to enroll in a nail technician program at a beauty school. Here at Crave Beauty Academy, we have two convenient campuses each with a nail technician program that meets the state’s needs. Our campus in Kansas offers a 350-hour nail technician program while our Missouri campus provides a 400-hour nail technician program.

Once you complete a nail technician program at a certified beauty school, you must sit for the state board, and then you’re well on your way to starting your career as a nail tech.

Learn More Than Nails

While learning all about nails is a big part of becoming a nail technician, that’s not all you’ll learn. At Crave Beauty Academy, you can learn how to provide the best customer service, salon and spa best practices, and marketing skills to help you achieve your dream career, whether you work in a salon or start your own business.
