Meet The Team

Julia B&W HS July 2016Creative 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 makes all the difference; here they are:

Julia

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…

Lauren

Lauren had a passion for the nail and beauty industry from an early age and after completing her A-Levels and then her degree in Marketing at Nottingham Trent University she embarked on her nail journey. Lauren worked in the industry for several years, including owning her own salon for two, until she was presented with the opportunity of working in Creative Academy+ Manchester in 2013. Lauren has progressed quickly and now, as Academy Manager, is a very important part of academy life with a role that combines her passions for education, business and the nail and beauty industry.

 

 

Dawn

Dawn discovered CND™ in Tenerife back in 2001 and has never looked back. Being a part of CND™ for the past 15 years, Dawn believes that there is nothing in the industry as strong, passionate and sustainable as the brand she fell in love with all those years ago. Dawn is a full systems CND™ Education Ambassador for Creative Academy+ Manchester as well as one of our Lash educators. Not only is she able to pass on her knowledge to her students every day but she also spreads the passion for the nail and beauty industry that she makes so contagious.

Kirsty

Kirsty started her career as a Saturday girl in a hairdresser’s and went on to complete an apprenticeship in hairdressing. Having this insight into the hair and beauty industry allowed her to realise that she had a passion for beauty. So she enrolled on a course in nail technology and went on to work in a salon for 5 years. Just after opening her own busy mobile business Kirsty started working at the Academy. She has since completed her PTTLS and she now passes on her knowledge and passion for the industry through teaching Nouveau Lashes, MoroccanTan and CND™ nail classes. Kirsty is a member of the elite team of Full Systems CND™ Education Ambassadors after graduating CND™ Bootcamp in Copenhagen in May 2015!

Lucy

Lucy worked as a youth worker for nearly ten years and discovered her love for nails whilst doing nail art sessions with the teenage girls. So much so that she embarked on her new career through the CND™ complete course. Her new found passion for all things nails, lashes and tan allowed her to run her own business; something she still does when she is not working in the academy! Lucy has gone on to complete her PTTLs and is now a MoroccanTan and Nouveau Lashes educator. Lucy is also our Business Development Manager – contact her to ensure your business reaches its full potential!

Robyn

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 Waxperts, MoroccanTan, LVL Enhance 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’.
