I’m Lori Halloway known as The Meticulous Manicurist on YouTube. I’m a broadcaster, online entrepreneur, salon owner, author, and inventor. I create video tutorials of real life situation for other nail technicians and people dealing with similar situations. Iv’e taken my 25 years of experience in the salon and created amazing videos you can follow to achieve success.

I support the education, growth and collaboration of nail technicians and nail lovers all over the world through tutorials. My videos encompass everything you ever wanted to know or might encounter. I will teach you about nails, manicures, pedicures, acrylics, gels and nail art. I hope to enrich perception and attitudes to create connections between nail tech and clients, by teaching there is more to this industry than just doing nails.

I love my career! I serve my community, I love to help people look and feel their best. I feel proud, happy, productive and accomplished every day but my family and my faith are what complete me. I am the owner of Voila Salon & Spa, author of Shear Savvy Secrets and Strategies for Successful Salon Apprenticeships, and inventor of the first patented Ergonomic Manicuring Support, The Ergo Lift.
