CND Shellac CND Full Systems MoroccanTan wax:one LashUS

I originally trained as a Hairdresser 14 Years ago. I loved my job however whilst spending time in various salons, both employed and self employed, I discovered my passion for Nails and Lashes. I decided to take a risk and train in Luxury Manicure, Gel Polish, Liquid and Powder Enhancements and Gel Enhancments. I adored everything about nails however the brand I was using did meet mine nor my clients needs. I trialed numerous brands and that's when I discovered CND! 

CND changed everything for my business. Especially Shellac. It helped me to build my reputation, my business and my skill Level. I transitioned all my services to CND along side completing the courses. The courses were in depth, they provided me with underpinning knowledge and understanding of the products and brand. My Educator totally inspired me. She gave me confidence and helped me to refine my skills. That's when my focus changed. That is what I wanted to do. I am so excited to pass on my knowledge and experience to my students.

I took another risk in 2017, I left my job in Salon and joined the Sweet Squared team in Leeds. 

Along side nails, I also trained in Lashes in 2012. When LASHUS was launched, I was delighted to be able to educate for this incredible brand. I love the instant transformation of The LASHUS LIFT. My clients adore this treatment. The education classes are informative, hands on and a great atompshere. 

I have recently attended CND Bootcamp and this has to be one of the most amazing experiences. I was lucky enough to win 2 awards. Best Academic and Best Overall.

For some time, I have been longing to combine my love of all things Nails and Education.

I believe education to be such an important part of our development as professionals. It helps to reignite our passion, motivate us to be the best we can be, grow our skills, our confidence and elevate our profits.

It goes to show, some risks are worth taking.
