Manicure and Pedicure Online Certificate Course Outline

Module 1: Manicure and Pedicure

Manicure and Pedicure

Manicure is a cosmetic treatment for the hands and nails that includes nail shaping and painting, as well as cuticle treatment. Manicures can be performed at home or in a salon. Making designs on the nails using nail paint or gems is also part of a manicure. Artificial gel or acrylic nails are used in French manicures.

History

Manicure and pedicure have been practiced for thousands of years all throughout the world. Manicures were initially used in India 5000 years ago. A manicure set was discovered in Babylon and is thought to date back to 3200 BC. Eggs, wax, and gelatin were used to make nail paint in ancient China. Cleopatra, the famous Egyptian monarch, is said to have used henna on her nails.

Purpose

Manicure and pedicure are used to improve the appearance of the nails and to keep them healthy. Manicure and pedicure are considered "pampering" by certain people. These procedures, on the other hand, are a technique to release tension and may have health benefits.

Benefits and Drawbacks

Nail treatments include a number of advantages and disadvantages. Massages are given after manicures and pedicures to help with blood circulation. Joint flexibility is improved by good circulation. Massages have also been shown to relieve stress and improve mental wellness.

Module 2: Anatomy

The anatomy of the various body parts involved in these cosmetic treatments, such as the arms, hands, feet, and ankles, will be covered in this module. We'll look at bones, joints, and muscles, among other things.

Hand and Lower Arm

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Muscle Groups
  • Blood Supply

Feet and Ankles

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Muscle Groups
  • Blood Supply

Layers of the Skin

The epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous fat, sometimes known as the hypodermis, are the three layers that make up the skin.

Nail Structure

A variety of elements make up the structure of each nail.

  • Nail plate
  • Nail bed
  • Hyponychium
  • Onychodermal band
  • The matrix

Nail Growth

Toenails develop more slowly than fingernails, which grow 3.47 mm per month on average. When the matrix generates new keratin cells, the old ones are displaced, causing the nail to move forward along the nail bed.

Module 3: Nail Conditions and Contraindications

Nail Conditions

It’s vital to recognize common nail and skin issues - some treatments may not be suitable for persons with particular conditions. Always ask the client if they have any problems with their hands, feet, or nails throughout the consultation. This is for their protection and to protect your business; harming them accidently could result in legal troubles.

Common nail issues

  • Fungal infection
  • Discoloration
  • Brittle nails
  • Splitting nails
  • Thickened nails
  • Ingrown toenails

Skin Conditions Affecting Hands and Feet

Clients' hands and feet may be affected by skin disorders, which may limit treatment possibilities.

  • Paronychia
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis

Module 4: Equipment and Environment

This area covers everything from technical items of equipment to lighting and chairs used in manicure and pedicure. We'll also learn about the technician's function in the entire therapy process.

Manicure and Pedicure Equipment

  • Nail cutter
  • Nail filer
  • Nail buffer
  • Cuticle pusher
  • Cuticle cutter

Technician Preference

A nail technician is a beauty professional that works on fingernails and toenails as well as massages for the hands and feet. Grooming one's nails improves their appearance and helps to keep them healthy. Manicures, pedicures, nail shaping, callus treatment, cuticle grooming, synthetic nail treatments, and paint application are among the services provided by technicians.

Chairs for Clients

In a nail salon, the chair you choose is crucial. It must be comfy in order to assist the client's posture. The lumbar support provided by hydraulic chairs is excellent. In today's salons, leather chairs are favored since they are easier to clean. To meet the demands of the client, salon chairs should include adjustable armrests, footrests, and height.

Tables/Workstations

Manicure workstations are elegantly designed tables where clients can receive comfortable nail treatments. Manicure tables should provide plenty of room for the technician to work comfortably. A nail dust collector is fitted into some workstations. Workstations should be made of an easy-to-clean and maintain material.

Module 5: Manicure Procedure

Preparing the Nail for Manicure

It's crucial to prepare your nails before getting a manicure so that the manicure lasts longer and your nails stay healthy. It is critical to sanitize the client's hands to prevent the spread of germs or infection.

Buffing

Buffing the nails using a nail buffer gives them a shinier appearance. It aids in the removal of edges and promotes healthy nail development.

  • Discs
  • Emery Board Shape
  • Buffing Blocks

Cutting

Extra edges of the nails must be trimmed off because they can become jagged and ragged. Different equipment, such as nail clippers or manicure scissors, can be used to trim nails. Nail clippers have a concave edge that easily fits into the nail and simplifies the process. Manicure scissors aren't very frequent. They do, however, have advantages over normal nail clippers in that they are far more exact.

Filing

Filing focuses on giving the nail shape and smoothness. The correct nail filer, as well as the proper filing directions, should be utilized to get a perfect form.

  • Square Nails
  • Round Nails
  • Squoval Nails
  • Oval Nails
  • Almond Nails

Cleaning

Cleaning your nails is important because it removes bacteria and debris that has built up in your nails. Acetone or specialised nail polish removers can be used to clean the nails. It aids in the improvement of nail health. Nails can also be cleaned by soaking hands in warm water while using a scented soap to release dead skin from the nails.

Nail Shaping

A nail filer with a specific grit is used to form different types of nails. Filing maintains the nails strong and healthy while also giving them a beautiful appearance. To avoid damaging the nail, use the filer softly in one direction.

Cuticle Treatments

  • Cuticle Creams
  • Cuticle Oils
  • Coconut Oil

Massage

The massage that takes place during a manicure enhances blood circulation and increases joint mobility. Massage also eliminates dead skin cells and improves the skin's look. It is known to improve mental wellness by lowering the client's stress levels. Massaging has been shown to improve skin health.

Painting the Nails

A base coat is required because it keeps the manicure from peeling. Apply the first layer from the middle to the sides when the base coat has dried fully. Make sure the color is properly distributed on the nails. Apply a second layer to ensure complete coverage. Apply a top coat towards the end to prevent the nail paint from chipping.

Module 6: Pedicure Procedure

We will learn about the detailed method of a pedicure in this module. Pedicures promote physical and mental well-being by relaxing the feet.

Buffing

Buffing removes ridges and adds gloss to the nails, giving them a polished appearance.

  • Rough Part
  • Smooth Part
  • Shiner

Cutting

Nail clippers or nail scissors can be used to trim toenails. Toenails are clipped with larger nail clippers since they are thicker. It's best not to use the same nail clippers for toenails and fingernails because bacteria and other pathogens can be transferred.

Filing

Filing the toenails gives them a great shape. Toenails that have been filed properly will not become entangled in socks or stockings. Toenails can be filed using an emery board. The filer should always be held at a 90-degree angle to the nail.

Cleaning Nails

Cleaning your nails is an important component of taking care of your feet. Toenails need to be groomed because they prone to gather dirt and germs. Infections and skin problems can be avoided by cleaning toenails. Soaking feet in lukewarm water with scented soap removes debris or bacteria from between the toes.

Nail Shaping      

Toe nails should not be shaped in an oval or pointed shape because this might lead to uncomfortable ingrown nails. The optimal toenail shape is one that is flat across and not too short.

Cuticle Treatments

A cuticle is a dead skin layer that covers the nail and protects it from infection. Cuticles have a tendency to overgrow, which can lead to infection in the nail bed if left untreated. Overgrowth, paronychia, and dryness are all problems that can harm the cuticle. All of these issues are treatable.

Skincare

Taking care of your feet is crucial and moisturizing them on a daily basis keeps your skin healthy. Cuts, swellings, and ulcers on the feet should be checked on a daily basis. Calluses, which are thick areas of skin, are common on the feet. Calluses can be caused by tight shoes or frequent contact on the feet. To eliminate dead cells from calluses, rub them with a pumice stone in a circular motion.

Massage

Because they bear the body's entire weight, feet should be cherished as much as any other part of the body.

Painting the Nails

Clean your toenails with an acetone nail paint remover before painting them. Before applying nail colors, make sure your nails are totally dry. Without touching the cuticle, glide the nail paintbrush from the top of the nail to the free edge. Finish with a top coat to prevent the pedicure from chipping.

Module 7: Health, Safety, and Hygiene

Risks of Manicure and Pedicure

These cosmetic treatments come with some health hazards. A simple cut or wound can provide a risk, as can a more serious infection such as a fungal or bacterial infection.

  • Nail Fold Infection
  • Follicular Infection
  • Contact Dermatitis
  • Warts
  • Cancer

Health and Safety for Manicure/Pedicure

Before getting a manicure or pedicure, there are a few things to keep in mind. To protect one's health, certain steps should be remembered.

Fire Protection

Employers are required by OSHA to have an emergency response and fire prevention plan that complies with the Code of Federal Regulations.

First Aid Kit

  • Small flashlight
  • Scissors and tweezers
  • Emergency blanket
  • Triangular bandages
  • Antiseptic towelettes

Module 8: Client Consultation and Business Expansion

Customer Consultation

When a client is deciding whether or not to return to your salon, providing exceptional customer service makes all the difference. To improve the customer experience, create a nice setting — their visit should be soothing. Body language is the next important part of customer service. It should go without saying that you should greet customers with a smile and a warm, open, and welcoming demeanor.

Where to Conduct Your Business

If you're opening your own nail salon, you'll encounter a variety of challenges, one of which is deciding where to locate your business. If you're starting from the ground up, you might not be able to afford to acquire or rent a facility. Instead, you might find yourself working as a mobile nail technician or even from the comfort of your own home.

  • Home business
  • Mobile nail technician

Business Licenses

You should pay particular attention to state and local licensing regulations while beginning your own salon. To apply for a business license, you'll normally need to register a permanent business address. If you choose to run a business from your home, the requirements may be different. Make sure to check your area's zoning restrictions.

Marketing

Facebook and Instagram are two of the most effective venues for promoting and growing small businesses.

Recognition & Accreditation

Upon successful completion of this course and achieving a passing score for the assessment, you will become a qualified Manicure and Pedicure Professional. You will also be issued with an international continuing education credit (CEU) certificate, accepted by many Nail Technician organizations worldwide.

The Certificate is applicable worldwide, which demonstrates your commitment to learning new skills. You can share the certificate with your friends, relatives, co-workers, and potential employers. Also, include it in your resume/CV, professional social media profiles and job applications.

The epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous fat, sometimes known as the hypodermis, are the three layers that make up the skin.

Nail Structure

A variety of elements make up the structure of each nail.

  • Nail plate
  • Nail bed
  • Hyponychium
  • Onychodermal band
  • The matrix

Nail Growth

Toenails develop more slowly than fingernails, which grow 3.47 mm per month on average. When the matrix generates new keratin cells, the old ones are displaced, causing the nail to move forward along the nail bed.

Module 3: Nail Conditions and Contraindications

Nail Conditions

It’s vital to recognize common nail and skin issues - some treatments may not be suitable for persons with particular conditions. Always ask the client if they have any problems with their hands, feet, or nails throughout the consultation. This is for their protection and to protect your business; harming them accidently could result in legal troubles.

Common nail issues

  • Fungal infection
  • Discoloration
  • Brittle nails
  • Splitting nails
  • Thickened nails
  • Ingrown toenails

Skin Conditions Affecting Hands and Feet

Clients' hands and feet may be affected by skin disorders, which may limit treatment possibilities.

  • Paronychia
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis

Module 4: Equipment and Environment

This area covers everything from technical items of equipment to lighting and chairs used in manicure and pedicure. We'll also learn about the technician's function in the entire therapy process.

Manicure and Pedicure Equipment

  • Nail cutter
  • Nail filer
  • Nail buffer
  • Cuticle pusher
  • Cuticle cutter

Technician Preference

A nail technician is a beauty professional that works on fingernails and toenails as well as massages for the hands and feet. Grooming one's nails improves their appearance and helps to keep them healthy. Manicures, pedicures, nail shaping, callus treatment, cuticle grooming, synthetic nail treatments, and paint application are among the services provided by technicians.

Chairs for Clients

In a nail salon, the chair you choose is crucial. It must be comfy in order to assist the client's posture. The lumbar support provided by hydraulic chairs is excellent. In today's salons, leather chairs are favored since they are easier to clean. To meet the demands of the client, salon chairs should include adjustable armrests, footrests, and height.

Tables/Workstations

Manicure workstations are elegantly designed tables where clients can receive comfortable nail treatments. Manicure tables should provide plenty of room for the technician to work comfortably. A nail dust collector is fitted into some workstations. Workstations should be made of an easy-to-clean and maintain material.

Module 5: Manicure Procedure

Preparing the Nail for Manicure

It's crucial to prepare your nails before getting a manicure so that the manicure lasts longer and your nails stay healthy. It is critical to sanitize the client's hands to prevent the spread of germs or infection.

Buffing

Buffing the nails using a nail buffer gives them a shinier appearance. It aids in the removal of edges and promotes healthy nail development.

  • Discs
  • Emery Board Shape
  • Buffing Blocks

Cutting

Extra edges of the nails must be trimmed off because they can become jagged and ragged. Different equipment, such as nail clippers or manicure scissors, can be used to trim nails. Nail clippers have a concave edge that easily fits into the nail and simplifies the process. Manicure scissors aren't very frequent. They do, however, have advantages over normal nail clippers in that they are far more exact.

Filing

Filing focuses on giving the nail shape and smoothness. The correct nail filer, as well as the proper filing directions, should be utilized to get a perfect form.

  • Square Nails
  • Round Nails
  • Squoval Nails
  • Oval Nails
  • Almond Nails

Cleaning

Cleaning your nails is important because it removes bacteria and debris that has built up in your nails. Acetone or specialised nail polish removers can be used to clean the nails. It aids in the improvement of nail health. Nails can also be cleaned by soaking hands in warm water while using a scented soap to release dead skin from the nails.

Nail Shaping

A nail filer with a specific grit is used to form different types of nails. Filing maintains the nails strong and healthy while also giving them a beautiful appearance. To avoid damaging the nail, use the filer softly in one direction.

Cuticle Treatments

  • Cuticle Creams
  • Cuticle Oils
  • Coconut Oil

Massage

The massage that takes place during a manicure enhances blood circulation and increases joint mobility. Massage also eliminates dead skin cells and improves the skin's look. It is known to improve mental wellness by lowering the client's stress levels. Massaging has been shown to improve skin health.

Painting the Nails

A base coat is required because it keeps the manicure from peeling. Apply the first layer from the middle to the sides when the base coat has dried fully. Make sure the color is properly distributed on the nails. Apply a second layer to ensure complete coverage. Apply a top coat towards the end to prevent the nail paint from chipping.

Module 6: Pedicure Procedure

We will learn about the detailed method of a pedicure in this module. Pedicures promote physical and mental well-being by relaxing the feet.

Buffing

Buffing removes ridges and adds gloss to the nails, giving them a polished appearance.

  • Rough Part
  • Smooth Part
  • Shiner

Cutting

Nail clippers or nail scissors can be used to trim toenails. Toenails are clipped with larger nail clippers since they are thicker. It's best not to use the same nail clippers for toenails and fingernails because bacteria and other pathogens can be transferred.

Filing

Filing the toenails gives them a great shape. Toenails that have been filed properly will not become entangled in socks or stockings. Toenails can be filed using an emery board. The filer should always be held at a 90-degree angle to the nail.

Cleaning Nails

Cleaning your nails is an important component of taking care of your feet. Toenails need to be groomed because they prone to gather dirt and germs. Infections and skin problems can be avoided by cleaning toenails. Soaking feet in lukewarm water with scented soap removes debris or bacteria from between the toes.

Nail Shaping      

Toe nails should not be shaped in an oval or pointed shape because this might lead to uncomfortable ingrown nails. The optimal toenail shape is one that is flat across and not too short.

Cuticle Treatments

A cuticle is a dead skin layer that covers the nail and protects it from infection. Cuticles have a tendency to overgrow, which can lead to infection in the nail bed if left untreated. Overgrowth, paronychia, and dryness are all problems that can harm the cuticle. All of these issues are treatable.

Skincare

Taking care of your feet is crucial and moisturizing them on a daily basis keeps your skin healthy. Cuts, swellings, and ulcers on the feet should be checked on a daily basis. Calluses, which are thick areas of skin, are common on the feet. Calluses can be caused by tight shoes or frequent contact on the feet. To eliminate dead cells from calluses, rub them with a pumice stone in a circular motion.

Massage

Because they bear the body's entire weight, feet should be cherished as much as any other part of the body.

Painting the Nails

Clean your toenails with an acetone nail paint remover before painting them. Before applying nail colors, make sure your nails are totally dry. Without touching the cuticle, glide the nail paintbrush from the top of the nail to the free edge. Finish with a top coat to prevent the pedicure from chipping.

Module 7: Health, Safety, and Hygiene

Risks of Manicure and Pedicure

These cosmetic treatments come with some health hazards. A simple cut or wound can provide a risk, as can a more serious infection such as a fungal or bacterial infection.

  • Nail Fold Infection
  • Follicular Infection
  • Contact Dermatitis
  • Warts
  • Cancer

Health and Safety for Manicure/Pedicure

Before getting a manicure or pedicure, there are a few things to keep in mind. To protect one's health, certain steps should be remembered.

Fire Protection

Employers are required by OSHA to have an emergency response and fire prevention plan that complies with the Code of Federal Regulations.

First Aid Kit

  • Small flashlight
  • Scissors and tweezers
  • Emergency blanket
  • Triangular bandages
  • Antiseptic towelettes

Module 8: Client Consultation and Business Expansion

Customer Consultation

When a client is deciding whether or not to return to your salon, providing exceptional customer service makes all the difference. To improve the customer experience, create a nice setting — their visit should be soothing. Body language is the next important part of customer service. It should go without saying that you should greet customers with a smile and a warm, open, and welcoming demeanor.

Where to Conduct Your Business

If you're opening your own nail salon, you'll encounter a variety of challenges, one of which is deciding where to locate your business. If you're starting from the ground up, you might not be able to afford to acquire or rent a facility. Instead, you might find yourself working as a mobile nail technician or even from the comfort of your own home.

  • Home business
  • Mobile nail technician

Business Licenses

You should pay particular attention to state and local licensing regulations while beginning your own salon. To apply for a business license, you'll normally need to register a permanent business address. If you choose to run a business from your home, the requirements may be different. Make sure to check your area's zoning restrictions.

Marketing

Facebook and Instagram are two of the most effective venues for promoting and growing small businesses.

Recognition & Accreditation

Upon successful completion of this course and achieving a passing score for the assessment, you will become a qualified Manicure and Pedicure Professional. You will also be issued with an international continuing education credit (CEU) certificate, accepted by many Nail Technician organizations worldwide.
