Experience has taught her this makes the transition from academy to industry true, realistic and seamless.

Certificate III Nail Technology

I have been a nail technician for 7.5 years. My true passion in the industry is nail art, 3D art, fantasy work as well as extreme nail shapes, sculptures and creating an illusion with nail products, and pushing it beyond its limits. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and feel that in a classroom my energy and passion for the industry is infectious, giving students the courage to also believe in themselves, to create beautiful work. I wish to show students, how they can think outside the box and break boundaries. In 2021 I achieved a 1st place win in the NZ nail competition and two 1st place wins in Antalya (Turkey) World Cup Nail Championship.


Chani Burns

Certificate III Hairdressing

To me, nothing is more rewarding than seeing a stylist grow in their skills and knowledge and witness the love and passion they have for their work. Love what you do! I know that sounds simple and cliche but if you are passionate about what you do then success naturally flows from that. Hairdressing isn’t just a job, it is a passion.


Chris Trezise

Certificate III Barbering

After 17 years of experience in the industry growing my knowledge and skills, I have decided to embrace the challenge of sharing my passion and inspiring the next generation of barbers. It’s important to me that my students learn not only how to pass an exam. I want them to build a strong set of skills they will always use. All trades start with the basics or what I call a solid foundation. I have had the privilege of learning many different skill levels of hairdressing, which I combine with my barbering skill set for something extra than just classic barbering alone. I currently work in Mario’s Traditional Barbershop in the Sunshine Plaza and love to have a chat if you want to ever pop by.
