Nail art has been exploding the last few years, and as the trends become hotter and people show off their latest looks on social media, it’s the perfect time to take on a nail career. Not only can you showcase your creative ability, but nail careers are often flexible for you to manage your own schedule and set your own prices.

The Aveda Institute Las Vegas Nail Technology course can be completed in as little as five months. Not only do we prepare you for the state board licensure exam, but we educate beyond—setting you up for success once you graduate.

One of the things you’ll love about our institute is our education on intentional guest service. You’ll learn how to grow clientele, recreate nail art from looking at a picture, and other exciting nail trends. With more than a thousand services booked a month in our student clinic, you’ll grow in confidence and skill with our expert educators assisting you each step of the way.


Our 600-hour Nail Technology course will teach you:
  • History of Nail Care
  • Personal Hygiene and Public Health
  • Professional Ethics
  • Sterilization and Disinfection
  • Bacteriology
  • Disorders of the Nails
  • Cells, Metabolism and Body Systems
  • Technical Application of Chemicals
  • Nail Art

The Masterpiece Program, a copyrighted part of our curriculum, was developed exclusively for the Aveda Institute Las Vegas. We take an artistic approach to learning using five core elements of art, customer service, community connection, technique, and fashion sense. It is designed to help you understand the best ways to address your clients’ overall wellness with techniques that surpass the basics of beauty.


Aveda Institute Las Vegas has developed a culture where you’ll live out our core mission and participate in philanthropic events. We offer our nail technology students:

  • Several mock state board tests throughout the course to better prepare you once you graduate
  • Career fairs to meet with future employers
  • Annual charity events (where we raise money to build wells for clean water in under-privileged countries)
  • Guest speakers including influencers from the industry


The number one question we get is how am I going to pay for school? The great news is, we offer financial aid to those who qualify. If you are interested in our Nail Technology course, start by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). Our team will sit down with you personally to build a plan that works for you.


The first step to getting started is to schedule a career planning session. We’ll discuss your future goals and aspirations, share information about Aveda history, answer any questions you might have, and help you build a financial plan. Fill out the form below, or call the Aveda Admissions Department at (702) 459-2900 ext. 302 or 304.
