Costs Vary Depending on Location

If you do decide to go to a physical school be aware that the cost will vary widely from place to place. Some states require few hours of classroom and practical training. Other states require several hundred hours at school before you are considered ready for your nail tech licensing exams.

Is Private or Public School Cheaper?

Also the type of school that you attend can be a huge cost factor. If you attend a local community college (e.g.) for courses you are likely to pay less. If you go to a very well-known and highly-regarded institute you are likely to pay more. Generally, the more expensive schools will have better facilities and better teachers but this is not always the case.

In some cases, and after contacting some schools, you may decide that it really is worth it to spend the extra money for a premium education. However, lack of money is standing in your way. There are options for financing your studies. Grants, scholarships, or personal loans are all an option. When you contact schools be sure to ask if they can help you get the money together to pay for tuition an other training costs.


So, in summary, given all the information above, the cheapest school you could find that would prepare you for licensing exams would be distance education or online training from a community college. Find a school by entering your ZIP below:
