Nail Care Courses

What Is Nail Care?

Nail care forms part of beauty therapy, and it involves making sure that all fingernails (and toenails) are properly groomed and healthy.

It often also involves adding colour to the nails. It is a specialised field of study, and it is recommended that you complete a course in nail care if you want to become a successful nail care technician.

Why Should I Study Nail Care?

With people constantly wanting to improve their appearances, nail care or nail grooming has become a popular treatment option for both males and females. A career in nail care gives you the opportunity to express your creativity, as well as to make people feel good about their appearances. If you are passionate about working face-to-face with people, and helping to beautify their appearances, or even if you simply want to start your own business from home, then nail care may be a great option for you.

In South Africa, most jobs will require you to have completed a relevant course, but each employer will have their own set of requirements that they expect you to meet. Other aspects that they are likely to take into consideration include: your technical nail care skills, your interpersonal skills, and your other personal characteristics (such as whether you are detail-oriented and customer service-oriented).


There are many other reasons why you should study nail care:

  • You will gain the skills that you need to work in this industry.

  • You can increase your earning potential.
  • You can acquire the skills you need to start your own beauty therapy business.
