Hi I’m Gaia, I am the head of education for HONA. I’m obsessed with all things nails - you’ll often find me tucked away somewhere trying out new products, trends and methods to come up with new and inventive ways to make nails look fabulous.
If I’m not doing nails, teaching nails or watching other people do nails, I’ll be with my doggo’s or chilling with family and friends.
I’m based in Gloucester, Gloucestershire which is a rural city close the Cotswolds in the southwest. I have a passion for teaching but will always enjoy having clients, it keeps me up to date with my skills and reminds me of why I started this career in the first place.
Being a teacher is more than reading from a manual, it's connecting with students, supporting them when they don’t quite know how to support themselves yet and leading them into success. There’s nothing that brings me more joy than helping someone find their creativity and giving them the tools to achieve greatness within the industry.
ABOUT THE TRAINING VENUE
Our training day is all about YOU and my time will be devoted to giving you everything you need to hit the ground running. I provide 1-2-1 training or classroom sessions depending on need/demand.
Training is based in Gloucester, more details will follow once you register your interest. Transport is very accessible, walking distance from train and bus stations (Gloucester train station or Gloucester transport hub).
Refreshments can be provided but there are also lots of restaurants and supermarkets in close proximity as well as overnight accommodation in hotels/Airbnb’s or B&B’s.
Models will not be needed. A HONA approved lamp will be available for 1-2-1 students, larger groups would need to bring their own.
You can find more information on www.thestudiobabe.co.uk and if there’s anything more you would like to talk through, feel free to message me on my instagram @thestudiobabe.
