This project report was conducted to assess the awareness of nail technician students on the health effects of nail care products over a long-term use, and their understanding of health protection before and after an education session. Twenty three students in a cosmetology school participated in the project. A majority of the students were aware of some health issues possibly associated with long-term work in nail salons, but did not have a thorough understanding of some methods of health protection. Providing a lecture was an effective way to increase the awareness of the nail students and to strengthen their knowledge. Nevertheless, several projects conducted at multiple schools are recommended to develop a best education strategy in order to increase the awareness and health promotion behaviors of nail technicians or students.
