Hi McKenzie,
I agree with Juan. You need to go to a Beauty School or technical school to be licensed to work at a Nail Salon. The one thing I would add is that if you hope to one day own, or manage your own, Nail Salon, or business, I would encourage you to take some business classes, as it would advantageous to any future growth in your career.
Good luck!

Hello! If you want to work in the beauty industry by simply focusing on doing nails and hair, you do not have to attend a 4-year college or university. However, you do need to attend a technical college or a beauty school. In order to do nails and nail professionally at a beauty salon or nail place, you need a license (For example, being a licensed cosmetologist). The length of the programs can vary by school and its often times a "hands-on" experience.
