Our Pedicure course teaches you to perform classic pedicures, French pedicures and spa pedicures as well as gel polish application. Explore a variety of associated treatments, including exfoliation and massage techniques for legs and feet. Examine leg and foot anatomy, and discuss specific medical conditions related to pedicures. Classes occasionally feature industry guest speakers and representatives from nail care product lines who help you become more familiar with the esthetics industry. Practice what you learn by performing services on classmates, models and clients both in the classroom and in the school spa. Public health standards, personal appearance, professionalism, etiquette and the importance of communication are integral parts of this course.
