Hello, I am Anita Hug-Jones
I have been a nail tech for 32 years!
I started my career as a master tech for CND, which led me to Jan Arnold inviting me to headquarters to work on upcoming launches.
I have had the privilege to spend time with Doug Schoon, to begin testing
new products to be released (WOW, did I learn a lot from him!).
The following years I began to chase my dream of competing with nails,
where I was asked to join Odyssey nail system competition team.
Working with the world champion Trang Nuuyen, this is where I received the best education of my life! This also led me to one of the highlights of my career, landing on Nail Pro Magazine as Top 20 nail techs in the nation.
I have worked with many companies such as CND Young Nail, ONS, Star Nail, Cuccio, Revel Dipping Systems, & Joya Mia. Through them I became an educator later leading me to open my distributor store
BEAUTY BIZ Supply house.
I currently own Domani Day Spa, my home for the past 20 years. Recognized as business Women of the Year & the first nail spa to win top local business for 40 under 40! Through all my experience in the beauty industry my passion lies with teaching and helping technicians get the latest
and greatest nail industry products.
Follow me daily on Beauty Biz fb page for beauty tip of the day to help techs be motivated, inspired & elevated in the beauty industry!
