Jo Van Bladel
Nail Teacher – Sunshine Coast Campuses
Jo is our much-loved Nail trainer. Driven by a love of what she does and a love of learning. Jo is respected for her knowledge and her students benefit from her love of sharing that knowledge. Jo sparkles in the classroom, literally!
She loves training nail art, especially glitter and colour, and all the things that make a nail unique.
As one of her students said:
I trained under Jo four years ago. She is a truly amazing teacher. She is dedicated to her students and is always looking at new ways to engage them. As a nail technician, Jo’s skills are up there with the best and she is constantly improving. I know I can call on Jo for help and advice at any time. She is a very welcoming and caring lady. I cannot recommend her highly enough

Jo provides her graduating students with the skills to explore their own creative souls, create beautiful unique nails and turn it into a job they absolutely love doing. Her training is client focussed as she believes it is an important part of the job to “make the client’s feel as if they are the most important person in the world”, something she learned from her experience first starting out in a small business.
Jo originally began her career in nails, over 20 years ago. Becoming a nail technician/artist gave Jo the flexibility she needed to take care of her young son, she loved it and she’s been successfully creating beautiful nails for her loyal clients ever since. She has a wish to collaborate with as many nail techs as she can, and create a nail community that keeps the industry growing.
When we asked Jo what her key to success was she said “Practice, practice, practice and never stop learning”.
