Meet the founder of STAR NT

Lori Halloway is a true luminary in the field of nail technology with over 30 years of experience. Her vision is to elevate the industry and provide a lifeline to Nail Technicians and clients is embedded in her Meticulous Manicurist Online Nail Academy. The only visionary is the field, so far, with the courage to defend the right of clients to get complete care when they’ve been turned away from salons and Podiatrists. A pioneer in developing skills and techniques to safely help clients and maintain the scope of practice set by state cosmetology boards. The developer of cutting edge education that helped international organizations like Habia, in the UK, mold their National Occupational Standards for advanced foot and nail care. A leader in networking with reputable and ethical educators and nail education companies like Janet McCormick Nailcare Academy, CJ Murray Centre for Beauty, Becky Bunnel Nailed Studio & Academy, Amy Masters The Nail Source and others, who all have their specialties.

You might have been told you aren’t allowed to work on toenails that don’t look perfect, but that is only because the school doesn’t teach the necessary skills to do so. State Boards of Cosmetology encourage continuing education with private industry companies but don’t regulate them. Becoming a Specialty Toenail and Restoration Nail Technician fills the gap and is a much needed niche market all while staying in your scope of practice. 

So many incredible Nail Technicians think they have to work in a podiatry office to offer complete client care. Some Podiatrists try to hire nail technicians to bring in cash services to their business due to the low reimbursement of insurance companies. You don’t have to work in a podiatry office, you can even become your own business!

 I have the solutions, and I teach you what you need to help people from the most basic regular pedicure to the most advanced cases, SAFELY and LEGALLY! I know you have big goals and I’m here to help you achieve those goals!
