My experience at Trendy Nailz Institute was nothing short of a learning experience. I was searching for a school that celebrated individuality, cared about their students, celebrated sisterhood, and of course had a reasonable price. Upon meeting with Ms. Hester she checked off everything on my list before I even committed to her program. Even though I started a week behind my peers Ms. Hester sat one on one with me and made sure I understood the material and allowed me to make up hours in her other class. Throughout my time in at Trendy Nailz Institute my instructors showed a depth of understanding and passion for nail art which I greatly admired. On top of teaching us the “basics” about nails Ms. Hester went out of her way to teach us the trendy nail designs we see everyday on social media. She allowed us to be creative in our work and made class feel very engaging. I am leaving Trendy Nailz Institute with the skills, technique, and professionalism I came in wanting to learn. By simply following Ms. Hester’s advice and incorporating what I’ve learned in class I already have a position in a salon lined up upon my graduation. I am leaving this class 100% confident in passing the state board written and practical exam. I would absolutely recommend this school to anyone searching for a place where they can comfortably be themselves and build their confidence and knowledge in becoming a well-rounded nail technician.

Well, where do I begin? I came to this school originally because I loved the techniques that they teach you Vs the normal nail tech classes that you learn at a college. I came to class not ever touching acrylic in my life and in the past ten weeks I have learned more than I could expect! I feel comfortable doing nails & I know it’s only up from here! Not only have I gained much knowledge I have gained friends for life. Mrs. Hester & Mrs. Washington are amazing! Mrs. Washington is so knowledgeable & a great teacher. She is understanding & gives the best constructive criticism! Mrs. Hester is so humble & she is one of the biggest influences in my life now. She is a goal oriented woman who is about her business & I strive to be just like her. I’m sad that class is almost over but I know that this is only the beginning of our friendship & my career as a bomb nail technician!! Thank you ladies for all that you do everyday to help young women, like myself!

An awesome place to be and to get nails done and a wonderful place to learn!!!💅🏻✨
A “Trendyfied” Experience
3 months ago I walked into Trendy Nailz Institute excited, ready and eager to learn “how to do nails”. For 12 weeks I was embraced by awesomely knowledgeable instructors about something that I love going to get done for myself but didn’t know much of anything about. In the 60 nights (Tuesday-Saturday 4:30 - 9:30) that quickly came and went, I have attained a infinite desire for growth that surpasses “doing nails”. I received 300 hours of purpose to push far beyond cuticles! This program was 18,000 minutes amongst amazing energies, abundant knowledge, international pallets (😂insider), and dedicated instructors full of motivation and wisdom. 1,080,000 seconds of the best in nail technology that’s sure to set you apart from the rest is the bare minimal received here at Trendy Nailz Institute of Durham! #TRENDYFIED Experience of Excellence
Where do I begin...Trendy Nailz Institute is nothing more than AMAZING‼ Not only did Ms. Heaster teach us how to do nails the proper way, but she taught us how to overcome and preserver. On the first day you will think, what have I gotten myself into. However by the end of the class you will not want it to be over. On days we felt like giving up, she coached us through. Trendy Nailz Institute taught us how to be respectful to each other, our clients and most importantly self respect. You can't find a better Nail school in Durham, NC. She doesn't just teach you the basics, she teaches you everything from designs to sculpture nails. Ms. Hester doesn't hold back knowledge, because she wants you to be the best in all areas. So if you're looking for a nail school that is well rounded and the passing rate for practical and written exmaniation speaks for itself, TRENDY NAILZ INSTITUTE is the place for you!!!!! Whatcha waiting on??? Join the sisterhood today and get yourself a career and not just another job!!!!

Trendy Nailz Institute is a place you will always remember.
I'm a former trendy Nailz alumni and my journey with trendy nailz has been amazing. The whole experience in one word is GROWTH you lean so much more than nails..you come in by yourself and leave with a whole family.it's a sisterhood and when ms Tracy Hester tell you she going to drag you to the finish line that's what she mean. She wanna see you make it and she's a great supporter..
When you start to get overwhelmed the energy you get from just walking into trendy Nailz Institute won't let you I would most definitely recommend trendy Nailz Institute to anyone that's looking forward to transitioning from good to great. Trendy Nailz Institute is spiritually uplifting and full of fun and it will bring out the of nails you didn't even know you had.
I am a former trendy nail alumni student just want to say I had an awesome experience🙌🏾. I can honestly say I’ve learned a lot. I went from not knowing anything at all about nails to now being very comfortable with applying acrylic & Etc. Ms.Hester as well as Ms.Washington are such great souls💕 they will definitely get you to the finish line. Not only do we push cuticles but we are also pushed into our purpose💅🏾. I would definitely recommend taking the course not only do we learn about nails, but also how to have one another back as a sisterhood, it’s all about meeting new people and creating unique bonds.
I am currently a student, on my last day of class. The experience has been amazing. Being tested to show and boarden my creativity. The class size is small and intimate so each student gets individual attention to meet all needs. You don't only learn about nails but you're taught skills on how to communicate successfully with clients, your appearance, as well as ethical behaviors within a salon/spa. I also was given a project to design and budget my own nail spa/salon. I am thoroughly prepared for state board, which we practice each day in my last week. My instructor is/was patience and greatly knowledgeable on many techniques. She demonstrates interest in her students and their success beyond the classroom. Coming to Trendy Nailz Institute, barely knowing how to polish nails correctly. I am now leaving equipped to began my career and become a successful Nail Artist
After completing the program at Trendy Nailz Institute I feel confident in the quality of my work. Ms. Hester has gone above and beyond bringing out the inner nail artist in us all. The classes were very engaging, fun and full of positive energy. I look forward to taking the advanced classes in the future.
If you l thinking of joining trendy nailz institute you should.
Today will be last day at this school. I'm both sad and happy. There are things that I love about this school and things i will change (well mostly the things I'll change is me getting more client and study more) . Ms.Hester taught us how to do many new and old nails designs. My favorite nail designs is the flower nail and the bubble one. Everyone is so nice and you get a welcoming feeling when you come in.
I started nails back when I was a teenager because I like to save money, and I always wanted something extravagant on my nails for nail art. For years I did my own nails at home using acrylic and e-file. After practicing for a while, I then picked up nail art by using acrylic paint, this is when I really fell in love with nails. After a few years practicing my craft at home, I began struggle with inspiration and new ideas. It was then I decided it was time to go to school. When I was searching for a school, I knew I didn’t want a tradition school. I explored several schools and locations until I found Trendy Nailz Institute. As soon as I walked in the door, I knew that I finally found my school. When I walked in everything was inviting. Ms. Hester’s positive energy was infectious, and I knew I wanted that energy in my life. I had a long conversation with her that day as we discussed my goals and why I wanted to attend the school. I then decided to go ahead and pay my tuition and enroll in school. I enrolled in school to improve my craft and to learn the proper sanitation for my implements. Not only did I learn that, but I also gained wisdom and maturity in life. Before I started school, everything bothered me. How people felt about me, saw me, and even how some people looked at me. Ms. Hester’s positive spirit has allowed me to look at things differently and to learn how to not react to every little situation in life. I have not only grown as a nail tech but as a woman. Thank you for entering my life and spreading your wisdom.
This the best nail institute ever
Ms. Washington and Ms. Hester are amazing instructors❤️

Trendy nailz institute has to be the best experience of “school.” Although we are learning on how to adequately provide nail services, the instructor ( Ms. Hester ) makes the learning so much more enjoyable and entertaining than it should be. From a personal past judgement, I have never looked at the nail industry with little to no interest. I can now say that nails are actually kind of fun and artistic in a way. The whole institute is so heartwarming and caring as well. They work with your personal problems and try to come with a helpful conclusion. The instructors try their best to avoid a drop out because they care about the time and effort the students give in to the classes. Ms. Hester and her team makes you feel so family orientated. This isn’t just a institution, this is a family. The journey with trendy nails has been amazing, but I can say this will not be the end of the journey but the beginning with trendy nails. Trendy nailz will definitely be a chick fil a of nails( Ms. Hester ). Watch out world trendy nailz coming on top.
Very professional institute,very thorough and easy to learn.They break everything down so if you’re afraid that it will be a hard task don’t be.Very fun and family oriented instructors that care about their students achievements.I would highly recommend trendy nailz institute to anyone who is passionate about becoming a nail technician
This is the best school you can go too in Durham ! Ms.Hester is great and has over 20years of experience in the business you will leave school knowing the tricks and trades of the business in totality! Even if you have already started your nail career this school is best for you the learning is endless. If you’re thinking about attending nail tech school this is the school for you! TRUST ME !!
I just want everyone to know that this has been a great experience for me thus far. I have had a great experience with learning different techniques and different styles for the lessons that we are learning each week! This has been exciting for me because this is something that i have always wanted to do. I choose this institute because i have heard so much about it and after reading up on it and seeing a variety of pictures it made my decision easier! To anyone that chooses this college i wish you the best of luck and you will really enjoy it!!!
After waiting for so long to enroll. The wait was worth it I truly recommend this School. The teaching is not BASIC Ms. Hester goes beyond what you need to know. If anyone is looking for a good nail school this is the place to be. 💅🏼
I started school in July and ended in October.� I like that I learned nail mediums that I see on social networks. We called Trendy students for a reason�
Trendy nailz gave me the foundation I needed to become a good Nail Tech.�
The thing I will remember the most is the sisterhood we formed in class. I really enjoyed my learning environment.� I wish nothing but the best for my sisters.
This school changed my life! Love you guys..
