Louisiana Nail Technician Schools

The vast majority of cosmetology schools, in addition to general beautician programs, also offer programs specifically for nail technology. The state of Louisiana has a good number of such schools spread throughout the area.

It is important to note that Louisiana requires schools to be properly licensed. Any students from an unauthorized school will be denied their individual nail technician license, so be sure to check the school’s licensure status before applying. Prospective nail technician students should be prepared to pay, in addition to normal tuition, a one-time equipment fee to cover the cost of their supplies, books, and uniforms (if required). However, financial aid or scholarships may be available for qualified individuals. As far as coursework goes, most schools follow the guide below. Though, of course, there will be some variation from one school to the next.

Nail Technician Licensing Requirements in Louisiana

Due to health and sanitation concerns, nail technicians are required to be licensed by the state before they can work in the field. The following requirements must be met in order to be approved for licensure:

– Over the age of sixteen
– Minimum tenth grade education, or its equivalent
– At least 500 hours of nail technology education completed
– Pass the state board’s examination

The state board exam is a standardized test that assesses individuals’ knowledge and skill. This is done to ensure that nail technicians have been educated properly and know how to follow relevant safety procedures.

Employment Outlook for Nail Technicians in Louisiana

Average hourly wages for nail technicians is around twelve dollars or $26,000 annually. Of course, this will vary greatly depending upon the employer and the individual’s experience/qualifications. Currently, employment levels for cosmetologists, including nail technicians, are somewhat below the statewide average. Unfortunately, current growth projects are unknown. However, national growth for this field is expected to average to above average.
