Nail Industry Identity

Creating beauty is something that is an art within itself

To accentuate and add to already pre existing features and highlight them is the mission of beauty therapy. In the Nails industry this is more prevalent than ever. Nails have a long and deep rooted history in our culture. With most cultures having their own form of nail design dating back throughout their respective times. Today the presence of Nail care and nail design is a standard in people’s aesthetic outlook and one of the most essential identity markers. That is part of the make up of what makes one distinctive and different to their peers and a sign of identity.

In studying Nails you will not just be presented with rudimentary techniques to apply everyday over and over to clients. You will have the opportunity in helping to bring your unique, individual craft in helping clients achieve the distinctive Nail look they desire. It is obvious to see that the craft of a Nail Technician expert is respected worldwide.

From the sparkling award shows of Hollywood, to the office lit rooms of London, nails are as popular as ever and how far you want to go as a Nail Technician is up to you. Internationally, the Nail Technician is always in demand and sure to find themselves busy with clients & further opportunities.

The Art of Being A Nail Tech

Doing Nails and becoming a Nail Technician of high quality are two different things. Yes, you may havefound yourself in a nail salon wherethose who are doing your nails areconsidered "experts". But in actualityare good at what they do through simple repetition. This is not todiminish what they do. But a proper professional Nail Technician is someone who has an eye for design, understands why and how they are doing treatments, as well as being well versed in matching what the client sees in their mind in to reality.

Our courses will guide you in every aspect of becoming a Nail Technician.

Giving you the tools and knowledge to start your passion in nails.

Developing your own distinct style and artistic approach.

As well as giving you the confidence and needed edge to make your ownmark in the Nails industry.

A professional must have the ability to understand the anatomy, condition of health and safety intreating nails. Which must be learned and applied. The skillset for art design takes time and proper instruction in order to able to learn to adapt to any situation for a client. Many schools do not offer the time and patience to allow you to learn, fail and ultimately succeed. In choosing Ray Cochrane Beauty school you will have this opportunity to grow and learn.
