About Julie

Julie is a multiple award-winning Manicurist, Nail Technician, Beauty Specialist, Salon owner, Educator, Author, Salon Coach, Sesion Manicurist and mother of three!  After studying Beauty Therapy over 30 years ago, and completing hundreds of hours of coursework in the years since, Julie worked for several years for a global beauty brand, running her own nail & beauty business as a side-line from home. After 15 successful years she was encouraged to pursue her dream of opening her first salon and The Nail Lounge opened in 2006, relocating to larger premises in 2014. She found that she was so passionate about training and nurturing her staff that she decided to become an educator so that she could teach others new skills, pass on her industry knowledge and inspire the next generation of nails technicians and beauty therapists.
