Close to the heart of almost every hairstylist is a mentor. At Michiana Beauty College, that becomes true not only figuratively but also literally. An instructor hovers near every apprentice snipping locks, ready to offer guidance on how to best cut an A-line bob or sew an extension. Knowing that practice is key to developing talent, Michiana Beauty College—an accredited branch of Moored Beauty Schools, which has educated cosmetologists since 1959—has its teachers impart the secrets to transforming manes in a salon instead of a sterile classroom. There, they supervise and guide budding hair professionals as they lather locks with products from Wella and Matrix Biolage, carve face-flattering coifs, and tint hair with CHI color. Instructors also nurture aestheticians-in-training, who smooth skin with facials and waxing services, as well as student nail technicians, who brighten fingertips with OPI polish.
Growing up in his mother's kitchen in Western France, Laurent Robic developed a natural enthusiasm for fresh food made tenderly from scratch. After attending culinary school, Robic minced and sautéed his way across Europe, picking up knowledge of different cuisines and broadening his foreign whisk collection. Eventually, Chef Laurent traveled to the states with his wife. Today, he's amassed over 20 years of professional experience, which he passes on to students of all ages and experience levels during an ever-rotating lineup of demonstrative and hands-on cooking classes. Whether he’s passing on the secrets of winter soups and stews, demonstrating the versatility of chicken’s many kitchen uses, or unlocking global tastes with country-themed courses, Chef Laurent honors his art with patient, friendly instruction. A noted chocolatier, he also lovingly crafts French-style truffles out of Ecuadorian chocolate certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
