Lianna Nguyen, CEO, created Lianna's Nail Academy out of her love for teaching nails. She has taught nail professionals techniques over the years in her nail salon in Florence KY, Zen Nails LLC, over the past 7 years. She figured, it's time for her to establish a nail only school for future, passionate nail professionals.
Lianna Nguyen graduated from a cosmetology school in Louisville KY at the age of 16. She was taught by beauty educators who only specialized in hair and only taught nails by what the educator's understood from the books. Lianna realized that many graduated nail professionals did not acquire a true learning experience from a nail educator who has been on the field. She attained her educators licensed. With over 15 years of nail experience and nail salon ownership, she believes she will be providing a beneficial unique element for future students to the nail industry.
Her mission is to prepare students to be ready for state board testing and ready to feel confident to work in the real world. In the past, she saw a trend of many newly graduated nail professionals that weren't ready when they graduated and needed to learn more in the nail salons. She believed this situation caused many new nail professionals to lose confidence in themselves and created a higher chance to give up on their career.
Lianna's Nail Academy wants to take the nail profession to the next level, by showing the students proper techniques, ergonomics, understanding of product use, proper sanitation. The Academy also want to set our students up for success by showing them tips on how to manage their future business.
We hope to make a difference in our students lives for years to come.
