Juan M’s Answer

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.

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!
