Nails by Cheryl and Loudoun Academy Partnership

Cheryl Corrigan is an award winning nail technician and educator at Nails by Cheryl Corrigan. She is passionate about teaching and offers nail art workshops to local schools. Cheryl has both in person and online training academies and is celebrating 10 years in business this year.

She started her nail career at 18 as an apprentice nail technician in a busy salon in Ayr; she instantly developed a passion for nails and loved being a part of a thriving industry. An industry that was relatively new at the time. She is amazed at how the nail community has grown and loves to see the support and success it brings. Cheryl believes that building and supporting each other is the way forward.

Cheryl has recently partnered with Developing Young Workforce to inspire and encourage new talent in the nail industry. Her nail art workshops for young people are proving a success and she looks forward to more opportunities when the new school year begins. She offers one-on-one training for already qualified nail technicians, who wish to enhance their skills and abilities in certain aspects of their nail services. Her online and in person nail courses are fully accredited by UK leading hair and beauty insurance company ABT.

“I believe there should be apprenticeships available in the beauty industry for all aspects of beauty, including nails for more young people to have in salon training like I did. The experience I had from working in a salon environment gave me the confidence I needed to build my client base and start my own business.”

“I get to do what I love every single day and if I can inspire one person to follow their dreams too then that would be truly amazing!”
