The Hard Rock Nail Academy was founded by Johnny Tran Owner of Hard Rock Nail Salon and Nami S Toronto Realtor and Entrepreneur.

Owning his own successful salon and working in the industry for over 10 years Johnny noticed the lack of support and education available to those in his industry.  With so many trends, techniques and products coming on to the market, he noticed that the only resource he had to learn was thru social media such as Instagram and Youtube.

Taking pride in his work and the reputation of his salon he has spent countless hours learning, testing and perfecting these techniques and sharing his knowledge with his team.

 

 Always following the latest trends and wanting to try something new and fun Nami only wanted the best working their magic on her nails.  So of course it was only a matter of time before she met Johnny at the Hard Rock Nail Salon.  Devoted and loyal client for years, it was inevitable that Nami and Johnny would spark up a friendship.  With her background in fashion and her love of always keeping up with the latest trends in beauty, Nami also noticed that there was a lack of nail technicians in her city that had the knowledge and skills that the Hard Rock family possessed.  Often being asked where she gets her nails done by random strangers, she knew that clients often could not get an appointment as they were too busy to accommodate everyone especially new clients; which made her sad as she believes that everyone deserved a set of beautiful nails!

Over a manicure appointment one spring afternoon Johnny and Nami started to discuss some concerns they had within the industry as well as Johnny's concerns of not being able to keep up with the demand of his business.  Nami shared an idea she had and asked him if he had any interest in teaching and sharing his skills to other techs in the industry.  As it turns out it was an idea Johnny had been toying with as well and the rest was history.  Johnny, with his experience as a Master Nail Stylist and business owner and Nami with her background in business and fashion they founded the Hard Rock Nail Academy in 2017.

"We want to create an environment where all where welcome " - Johnny

-Johnny-

Owning his own successful salon the "Hard Rock Nails Salon" and working in the industry for over 15 years Johnny noticed the lack of support and education available to those in his industry.  With so many trends, techniques and products coming on to the market, he noticed that the only resource he had to learn was thru social media such as Instagram and Youtube.

-Nami-

 Always following the latest trends and wanting to try something new, Nami only wanted the very best working their magic on her nails.  So of course it was only a matter of time before she found Johnny at the Hard Rock Nails Salon thru Instagram.  Devoted and loyal client for years, it was inevitable that Nami and Johnny would spark up a friendship.  With her background in fashion and her love of always keeping up with the latest trends in beauty, Nami also noticed that there was a lack of nail technicians in her city that had the knowledge and skills that the Hard Rock family possessed.  Often being asked where she gets her nails done by random strangers, she knew that clients often could not get an appointment as they were too busy to accommodate the demand especially new clients; which of course made her sad because she believes everyone deserves a beautiful set of nails!

-The Hard Rock Nail Academy-

Over a manicure appointment one spring afternoon Johnny and Nami started to discuss concerns he had within the industry as well as Johnny's concerns of not being able to keep up with the overwhelming demand of his business (which he is grateful for).  Nami shared an idea she had and asked him if he had any interest in teaching and sharing his skills to other techs in the industry.  As it turns out it was an idea Johnny had been toying with and well the rest was history.  Johnny, with his experience as a Master Nail Stylist and business owner and Nami with her background in business and fashion they founded the Hard Rock Nail Academy in late 2017.

 

The Hard Rock Nail Academy is a place where all nail techs are welcome no matter your skill level.  We want to educated, share and support other techs in the industry as they grow their businesses and learn from each other.  We want to fill the gap in the industry to help other techs keep up with the latest in techniques, technology and trends while helping  them increase their revenue by setting them apart from the traditional "Nail Tech".
