Meet The Team

Creative Academy+ Manchester pride themselves on excellent customer service and having a great team here to support you at whatever point you are at in your journey.


With a passion for all things nails from a young age, Julia never imagined the endless possibilities that have been presented to her through her exciting and rewarding career. After being surrounded by the world of nails in America she quickly embarked on her nail journey in California and this incredible experience allowed her to open her own salon in the UK in 1987. This grew at an amazing rate and developed into the successful business that still remains.

In 2009 Julia partnered with Sweet Squared to become an education ambassador which quickly spiralled into becoming the proud owner of Creative Academy+ Manchester which has been a snowballing success since it opened and there is definitely more to come…

Robyn knew from a young age that she wanted to be a beauty therapist and from the off her career has gone from strength to strength. After completing her BTEC National Diploma in Beauty Therapy Sciences with full marks, Robyn worked in a few salons. One of which sent her to the academy to complete a CND™ Shellac course and with her thirst for knowledge and learning it was no surprise she became addicted to the training! The last few years Robyn has built up a very successful mobile business and has gained one of her greatest achievements to date by gaining her CND™ Grand Master status. Now, Robyn is a Wax:One, MoroccanTan, Lashes, Light Elegance and Nimue educator and in June 2016 went to CND Bootcamp in Amsterdam to become a full systems CND™ Education Ambassador. She passed with flying colours even winning the awards for the ‘Most Professional’ & ‘Best Presentation’.
