Meet our newest nail techs

Cathy's Blog - Stiletto Maintenance

A big part of what makes Brown & DeLine unique is our dedication to helping people improve their lives – to be the best they can be. It is so satisfying to help people achieve their goals. We work hard every day to be just a bit better than we were yesterday. We strive to grow professionalism in our industry.

One way we accomplish this is through sponsoring a cosmetology apprenticeship program.

Our latest apprentices are both learning to be nail technicians. This apprenticeship is a 6 month program with a minimum of 480 hours of in-salon training – at no cost to the student. Our apprentices learn so much during their time in the program. They get to learn technical skills from one of the best nail teams around. They also learn salon management techniques, retail product knowledge, business building, and our way of giving each client a 5-Star customer experience. A huge plus of an apprenticeship is that our trainees get to build a relationship with clients and the team. They are able to build their career before they are even done with the program. It is such an advantage to be able to start your career while you are still ‘in school’. Our apprentices hit the ground running! We are so proud of them.

A similar program would cost about $5,000 if done at a beauty school. While beauty schools are great at teaching basic technical skills, we feel you can’t beat the advantages of the apprentice program.

We are so excited that our 2 newest apprentices are ready to take appointments! They are nearly done with their training. They have practiced on some of our toughest customers – Brown & DeLine team members. As apprentices, they are encouraged to offer services to paying clients to hone their skills. Apprentice appointments may take a bit longer than your regular service, but you are receiving top-notch services. Prices for apprentice appointments are discounted – you’ll pay just $21 for a Classic Manicure and $43 for a Classic Pedicure.

I hope you are able to enjoy a great service at a great price from one of our apprentices.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Thank you for being a part of what makes Brown & DeLine an industry leader.
