Why Become a Manicurist?

The time it takes to become a manicurist is relatively short compared to other beauty school programs. If you want to start your career as soon as possible, becoming a manicurist might be the path for you!

Why Elaine Steven Beauty College?

You can receive comprehensive training and one-on-one guidance on how to become an effective Manicurist. This course can teach you how to prepare to work in a Salon. You will be mentored by experienced instructors and learn all aspects of the Manicuring industry.



To be eligible to work as a Cosmetologist, Manicurist or Instructor, you must be licensed by the state in which you intend to work. In Missouri you earn your license by passing an examination given by the Missouri State Board of Cosmetology. Only students who have completed the minimum training hours required by the state, (1500 for Cosmetology, 400 for Manicuring and 600 for Instructor Training), are eligible to take this examination.

The State Board of Cosmetology will not allow a student to take the State Licensing Examination until they have paid in full all charges (including Enrollment Fees, Tuition, Books/Kits and Supplies) owed to any and all Missouri Schools of Cosmetology that the student may have attended.

License Renewal:

License renewal is required by September 30th of every odd numbered year. This is including licensure at any point (ex. If you receive your license in an even numbered year you will have to renew the following year). .  In order to renew your license for Instructor Training you are required to complete 8 hours of continuing education.

Working Conditions

Manicurists work in clean, pleasant surrounds with good lighting and comfortable temperatures.  They may sit for long periods of time and almost always work with chemicals that may have unpleasant odors.  Many full time manicurists work more than 40 hours per week, including evenings and weekends, when salons are busiest. Employers look for prospective employees who are self-starters, enthusiastic, well-groomed and professional in appearance, display ability to maintain professional relationships with clients and co-workers, are dependable and responsible, follow salon policies and procedures, have a good attendance record, and embrace a “team player” attitude.
