Hosted by leading educators Tina Alberino and Jaime Schrabeck, the first-ever Nail Tech Reality Check Conference will provide three days of practical business education to potential and new salon owners at the Renaissance Chicago O’Hare Suites from February 24-26.

“This event gives attendees the opportunity to benefit from the experience and expertise of trusted independent educators,” says Alberino. “By taking the time to get to know attendees, their aspirations, and their challenges prior to the conference, we’re able to ensure every one of them gets exactly what they need.”

Topics will include business planning, legal compliance, staffing and compensation, service pricing, marketing, and client relations. “Owning a nail salon looks easy, but it’s not,” says Schrabeck. “We’ve condensed approximately $20,000 worth of consulting we’d normally provide to individual clients into a structured, personalized, and interactive event that’s affordable.”

Space will be limited to just 20 businesses. For more information, go to
