Simply Nails  -
Continuing education is not a requirement for nail technicians or beauty professionals in the state of Kansas.  It is, however, very important to me.  My goal is to attend a minimum 2 classes, tradeshows or other educational events each year.  Doing so means that I have to travel out of state which tends to be costly, but it also means that I am constantly growing  and learning new skills and techniques.  Products and techniques continue to evolve and change over the years.  It is important to me that I stay up to date on all of the latest trends and new products so that I can provide you with the best possible services and experience.
