Manicure Program

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in order to practice the arts and sciences of cosmetology, require the successful completion of a 100 hour clock hour program.  The philosophy of Massachusetts is the student must complete the 100 hour program in order to learn the basic fundamentals to prepare for the state board exam and prepare for an entry level position in the field of manicure. (Please keep in mind Mansfield Beauty Schools is not allowed by law to guarantee placement and or successful completion of the state board exam, it is our goal to achieve this outcome.)

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, upon successful completion of the State Board Exam will issue a manicure license.  The objective of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is for the student to receive the basic fundamentals within the 100 hour program.  This method has successfully provided a manicurist in Massachusetts with the most economical way to practice in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

In order to achieve this goal, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts mandates that all schools licensed to offer the Manicure program provide the curriculum as stated below.  The State Board does allow 10% flexibility.  Mansfield Beauty Schools utilizes this 10% to keep up with the current trends in the field of Manicure.

Mansfield Beauty Schools Program(s)as well as being licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Cosmetology and Barbering is also

accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences .  Accreditation means our program(s) meet high standards and outcomes measures such as completion, licensure and placement rates.

Mobile Manicure Services are now allowed in Massachusetts.  Upon completion of the program, passing of the state board exam and registration with the Massachusetts Board of Cosmetology and Barbering, you will be able to offer Mobile Manicure Services.  Contact the school for more information.
