Learn More with Optional Saturday Workshops

 Extend your HRTE experience with two optional workshops available on Saturday, the day before:

Keeping It Real with the Profiles girls! We'll work on the basics because that's where it all starts: a good nail under all the fun art. Get faster and more efficient; keep up with trends to become the 'go-to' nail tech/salon in your city! Includes e-filing, backfill technique, acrylic/gel application (hands on!) and a special goodie bag. Presented by Ashley Craig, Traci Dungan and Ami McClure on Saturday, August 8 (9 am - 12 pm). Add this workshop to your registration for an additional $150. 

Multi-media Nail Art Take your nail art to new heights and add new services to your salon menu. This hands-on workshop encompasses a variety of techniques: gel polish, hand painting, 3D and embellishments. Participate in a special competition with trophy awarded to students' choice. Presented by Lorena Marquez on Saturday, August 8 (1 - 4 pm). Add this workshop to your registration for an additional $150.

On Day 1 (Sunday), the HRTE educators each present a 75 minute class to the entire group on a variety of subjects. They’re selected for talent, teaching ability and diversity of expertise, so expect to learn more in one day than you could spending years in the nail business.

 On Day 2 (Monday), the education continues and all educators will be available for demos and product sales. Throughout the event, you'll make friends, learn new skills and expand your potential for success in the salon and beyond.

The Chicago Marriott O'Hare offers a convenient stay just minutes away from the O'Hare International Airport (complimentary shuttle available).

Book your room online or call 773.693.4444 and mention HRTE for our group rate: $139 plus tax/night for Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights.
