Real World Experience

Part of Shore Beauty School’s mission is to prepare our manicuring students for entry-level employment in manicuring or related beauty fields. Shore’s student clinic provides our students the opportunity to practice and build their skills while performing services on live patrons.

The school also encourages students, while training in the clinic, to build a book of business that can be taken with them to a job after graduating.

The State of NJ requires a license to practice manicuring.  In order to qualify for a Manicuring license, you must graduate from Shore Beauty School in good standing, having completed the full 300 hours of your program. Further, the NJ State Board of Cosmetology & Hairstyling requires graduates to pass both written and practical examinations with scores of 75 or better on each exam to fully qualify for NJ State licensing.  The State Board will not schedule the practical portion of the exam until the written exam has been passed.  Temporary Work Permits are available to graduates after passing the written portion of their exams, allowing them to work for six months prior to receiving their licenses.
