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.

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.
