Chrissie Pearce has been in the industry for nearly 14 years and teaching for over 7 years. She's the Head of Education for CJP.
Chrissie started her working life as an apprentice in surface finishing on super yachts but a serious back injury towards the end of her qualification meant she was no longer able to continue on this path.
Needing to find a new career where she could be sitting down but still using the skills she had gained, she discovered nails in 2008 and never looked back. Since then she has opened her own salons, worked in nail education around the world, ghost written nail education books and more!
She now has a mix of doing clients nails, running her businesses and teaching.
She loves sharing how to get amazing salon nails in a salon time frame, the best ways to get the look and style a student desires and helping the students increase their skills so they can build their own businesses.
Being affiliated with CJP Nail Systems since the start has been something Chrissie is so proud of, Jemma is not only her friend but they share the same passion for wanting change and wanting to create a product by nail techs, for nail techs. They have worked hard creating an education program for CJP and Chrissie has been overseeing some amazing educators helping them teach with her manuals.
I can’t wait for you to join me, whether it’s with me or one of our educators sharing some of my tips and tricks and I look forward to seeing your creations!
