Meet Kiri the educator for Derbyshire & surrounding areas. Kiri offers the full HONA education syllabus for you to learn from.



Hi Lovelies, I’m Kiri Sutherland, I’m based in Derbyshire in the East Midlands. Ive been in the nail industry for 15 years starting from the age of 14 at senior school and been obsessed with nails since then, I have worked in several different salons over the years and now in my home salon (my favourite place)

I love everything nails it makes my world go round. I’m a sucker for seasonal nail art…. Especially Halloween. I absolutely love being surrounded by other nail techs and sharing different tips and tricks and lets face it we just get each other.

There’s not many people who will understand why you need so much nail stuff! I can’t wait to pass on my knowledge and secrets to new people and hope to pass on my passion and watch you grow as you move through your nail journey just like I did.

I love teaching smaller groups as I feel you get 100% of my attention. I would love you to train with me, as I feel so strongly about aspiring nail technicians becoming the best they can be and you deserve to receive the best education possible.

Not only will you learn a lot including all my tips and tricks but i will share with you my business knowledge from two decades in the industry. Training with me will leave you feeling confident in your new skills, knowledgeable about all the HONA products and why you're using them.

 I’m not just here for your course - I’m here for the duration of your career for any help and advice should you need it.


About the venue I am situated in a small town not to far from the M1. There are plenty of hotels near by and I am on a bus route. There is off road parking available but also plenty of side roads to park on too.

I have an open plan, ground floor private studio which I have recently renovated my studio to create a cozy work friendly environment! I can provide 1-2-1 training or for a small groups (Maximum number of 4)

I like to keep the groups smaller to know that i can spend some 1-2-1 time with every student throughout the day. It is important to me that my students feel supported throughout the course and afterwards too.Therefore i will always make it a priority to answer any questions and help you in whatever you need during and after the training.

You will not need a model.1-2-1 will not need to provide a Hona approved lamp
