Nails are Back Webinar
by American Association of Cosmetology Schools

Enhance your program with new skills that will take your students to a new level of client care, one more fitting current clientele.

You will be taught how to refer to and receive referrals from physicians and podiatrists who hold a new respect for your technicians.
