Celebrity manicurist Julie Kandalec, founder of Julie K Nail Artelier, has announced a new addition to her academy, Julie K Nail Academy: a 6-week online business course called Beauty EntrePRONeur™ that will turn beauty pros into BeautyPROneurs (beauty + entrepreneurs).
Formerly only available to nail professionals, Kandalec was seeing numerous requests to teach to other beauty niches as well, so Beauty EntrePROneur™ was born. The course is designed for all beauty professionals in various niches including hair, makeup, estheticians, lash stylists, permanent makeup artists, barbers, and of course, nail artists.
The summer course will launch on July 12th, with open enrollment from Friday, June 23 through Wednesday, June 28, 2023.
According to the launch release, this exclusive course is crafted for beauty experts who aim to transcend the conventional 40-hour salon-focused employment schedule or elevate beyond freelancing as an assistant.
Become a Beauty PROneur
Over the span of 6 weeks, Kandalec will mentor students on the process of building a successful, high-end business in their individual markets, encompassing:
- Branding oneself as a VIP beauty pro, including creating a brand kit and logo
- Social media and marketing for beauty pros
- Exactly where to find celebrity & VIP clients in their local area, how to reach out to them, and what to say
- How to build credibility to accelerate one’s growth and set themselves apart from other beauty pros in their area
- Proper on-set etiquette and professionalism while on set and working with celebrity VIP clients
- Interviews with industry leaders, including a top celebrity makeup artist, a beauty and trend expert, and an executive producer who specializes in beauty campaigns.
Upon successful course completion, VIPs are added to Kandalec's highly regarded job referral list.
PLUS valuable resources, activities, gifting, and more.
The course modules will be accessible whenever needed, with a new module dropping each week. Three live calls with Kandalec will offer students direct interaction with her and an opportunity for real-time Q&A's, discussing advancements, and fostering a sense of community. Furthermore, students will be given access to an exclusive Facebook group for members only, granting them additional opportunities to connect with Kandalec and fellow students and alumni.
Students will have lifetime access to the course content.
