Shout Out to the MANI’s

When asked to “blog” for the LuRoss website, I was quite frankly a little intimidated. I am apparently a generation X’er, not a Millennial who has an obvious step up on the social media. For me, my first thought was, “What exactly is a blog?” With research I would describe a blog as an online journal for a particular website. The website and company I am representing is LuRoss Academy. I would like to introduce myself as the Manicuring Instructor; I am proud to say I have been part of the LuRoss team since 2015. I also graduated from LuRoss as a manicurist in 1993 and have had a great career in Ventura for 23 years. People in the area may not even know that we offer a “nails only” program. But be assured we are alive and well and growing. This particular program is fast, 18 weeks to be exact. Allowing you to start a career in a relatively short amount of time. It is a great opportunity for those right out of high school or even those looking for their second career. Nail Technicians are in demand as the industry continues to grow. If this is something that sounds interesting, I invite you to come visit my “newly” decorated classroom and see what we are all about. As a student you will work hands on with customers, practicing with top name brands. You will learn all the ends and outs about, manicures, pedicures, acrylics, gel polish, hard gel, acrylic dip system, e-file, nail art upon nail-art and most importantly passing your State Board exam and obtaining your license so you can become that great nail technician. Hope to bring you some updates soon. Wendy Robledo, Manicuring Instructor Lu […]

Beauty Blog Student Spotlight Lanette Zagal @devinenailz_

This week we had the pleasure of catching up with our former manicuring student Lanette. She is currently working at Cibara Salon Spa & Boutique, here in Ventura. At 19 she started doing nails out of her house as a hobby and managed to turn it into a full time career. She says, hypothetically speaking, she has never had to work a day in her life! She loves what she does and wouldn’t have it any other way. She speaks of her humility and how her struggles in life got her to where she is today. This gives her a sense of overwhelming gratitude for all she has overcome and accomplished. Her enrollment at Lu Ross was a leap of faith. When she completed the program she left her weekly paying job to rent a booth at the salon she is currently working to do nails full time. She insists that anything is possible as long as you push through the bad to get to the good. Her favorite part about attending Lu Ross was the preparation for the State Board Exam. She learned so much from her instructor and the manicuring course which lead her to where she is now. She wanted to be in the industry because she liked the idea of being able to provide a service everyone would be happy about. The celebrity artists who inspire her the most are @malishka702_nails @nailsbyly @nailsbymztina @leximartone. She insists that Lu Ross is a great school! Having the time to get to know her through her Instagram page, it is clear she is exceptionally creative. All the nail art on her page has intense attention to detail and incredible color choice. Her work is neat […]
