It is a Beautiful thing

when a career and a passion come together?

Here's what our students have to say...

I chose ANAR because it came highly recommended from a nail technician that was a family friend and happened to be doing my mom's nails. My mom's nails were always so beautiful and of such great quality. It sparked my interest, so this nail tech explained a bit about the course to me and I was sold. It was a great atmosphere to learn in. Very individualized teaching. Being educated in the small classes allowed the instructor to spend a helpful amount of time with each student. Even outside of class time, my instructor and the owner were kind and caring enough to answer any questions that, I myself as a new nail tech, had. And the very best part is that even now, years after completing my course, the people of ANAR are still always there to help you succeed in this career. By bringing in the latest products and being willing to show you how they work, to offering endless classes to keep your skills up to date and ever improving. I personally couldn't be happier with the route I took and that is thanks to where it all began! - Jayden St. Dennis
