Lacquerbar U Online Manicuring Certification Program
When it comes to nails, beauty schools teach you barely enough to pass a state board test. So we created a 100% online, part-time course to teach you not only the most modern manicuring techniques, but also the business skills that will help you build a lifelong money making career.
Whether you’re right out of beauty school, or a working hair stylist looking to add variety to your schedule, our 6-week program for aspiring manicurists and cosmetologists is flexible to accommodate full or part time working professionals who want to up their nail game.
Lacquerbar U is the most bang for your buck
Nail industry shows and bootcamps in LA and NYC are fun and all, but most of us ain’t got time or money for that. And with Lacquerbar U, you’re getting the latest manicuring techniques, nail art how-tos, salon/studio ownership do’s and don’ts, social media marketing advice, and more – all in one program, accessible online, wherever you live.
We know you’re trying to make more money and not just spend it, so we’re offering flexible payment plans to fit your budget!

What content you’ll learn each week
Lacquerbar U is officially in session! We’ll be starting off by getting down to the basics, from nail anatomy, to knowing your worth and learning how to properly price yourself.
Time = Money. When in service you’ll find yourself running into time consuming issues, in week 2 we’ll guide you how to effortlessly move through these situations with our focus on manicures.
This week our service topic is all about knowing how to give the best pedicure, an amazing massage, and touching on medical conditions to be aware of. On the business side we’re giving you the down-low on clients, how to retain them, but also knowing when to call it quits.
In week 4 we’re jumping into Acrylic and Hard Gel! E-filing? We got you boo. We’re also getting into the world of coworkers, communication, conflict resolution, and competition drama. Remember, we all go up together!
Now we’re getting into the nitty gritty. This week we’re going over your career options, taxes, insurance, State Board, and budgeting yourself.
In the past 5 weeks you’ve learned A LOT. It’s now time to show you off to potential clients, this last week is all about social media and marketing yourself.
Let's do this!
