What Makes Our Programs The Best

Why choose a TAOND Online Nail Program over any other program?
module 1
          The Answers are Simple.
  • Your Nail Education is extremely important, but it should also fit your lifestyle!
  • At TAOND we've created programs that are not only extremely comprehensive and professionally focused, but we've made them so you can control your education.
  • No more boring classroom lectures that don't fit your schedule.
  • And no more over-priced courses that leave you feeling unprepared!
So many times over the years (and we've been doing this since 2000) folks have questioned whether or not an online nail training program can compete with an in-class program. Our first question (and yours should be), "Why Not?"

We provide an affordable, flexible training environment based on budget and lifestyle, comprehensive training materials, in-depth step by step training, extensive support including one-on one teacher feedback on all your program work, LIVE examinations and a collaborative student sharing environment.

Here's a chart we put together to compare our Online Program with an in-class experience to finally answer the question,
"Can I really learn to perform Professional Nail services ONLINE?"

Here are several other reasons why our programs are the best!

THE T.A.O.N.D. METHOD™
What is the Trademarked T.A.O.N.D. Method and what makes it different?

Most nail schools continue to follow the same teaching principles which haven't changed in decades. They run you through their theory, decontamination protocols, anatomy, nail disease and disorders, then go over and over the application techniques for whichever services you are required to learn. Then you are required to complete quizzes or exams, regurgitating the material your instructor went over in class - 'same old same old' - BORING!

With our unique and exciting Trademarked T.A.O.N.D. Method not only do we expose you to the proper professionally required theory that you'll need in order to work safely and professionally, along with step by step instructions on creating stunning applications - BUT Our Ultimate Goal is to CHALLENGE YOU!
In our program we have created a learning environment designed to get you thinking 'outside the box', not just repeating instructor lead lectures. Who wants to sit in a classroom all day listening to an instructor go on and on reading from an out-dated textbook?

Wouldn't you rather be able to learn at your own pace, from the comfort of your home, with your program materials available to you 24 hours a day, and most importantly on a budget that suits your lifestyle? These are the reasons we created this amazing online experience in the first place!

Our incredible and unique Module Assignments will stimulate not only your intellectual capacity, but will also teach you how to apply all the program material into a manner that you'll be using everyday in your new career.
  • You'll be creating your very own Service Menus that you can use in your new career
  • You'll be creating actual handouts that you'll be giving to your clientele
  • We'll get you thinking about how you are going to start your career, what career options there are for you outside of working all day in a salon
  • We'll get you started on building a clientele before you even hang out your business shingle, letting you graduate in a position to already start earning money
  • Your practical work will be reviewed thoroughly and teacher feedback will be provided on a consistent basis in order to best guide you to creating amazing professional applications
  •  We get you thinking about where will your career be in 1 year, 5 years or even 10 years
  • We'll get you thinking independently not just repeating what is told to you
  • We'll teach you how to research and think critically about material presented from all sources
  • We'll get you out and start chatting to 'real people' who go to the salon - therefore helping you understand how they feel about the nail industry? What kind of services they really want, and how you can meet their needs in your new career?
We feel that our unique method of challenging you sets our program apart from all others whether it be in class or online.
