Renaissance Academie Hair Design and Esthetics benefits both its students and its surrounding community. Those who enroll to study cosmetology or aesthetics get hands-on training in the school's salon or spa. And, once students have acquired the skills, locals serve as their clients. Instructors provide expert supervision as students perform haircuts, facials, nailcare, and waxing.
A training facility for pamper proficients, Aveda Institute Provo educates future scissor-wielders and skin-coddlers, while providing professional services at discounted prices. Student stylists practice their craft as they cut ($10), color ($30–$35) and trade stock options with fearless follicles. The botanical hair and scalp treatment rewards heroic heads with an intensive conditioning treatment to repair strands, and massages deserving scalps, necks, and shoulders ($25). Following treatment, a simple style shows off the results, while a hand massage prepares paws for comb handling and thumbs-upping.
If the instructors at The Kitchen were melded into one Voltron-esque chef, that chef would stand out as a culinary impresario, wielding skills in organic and vegetarian cooking, as well as pastry-making, and international cuisine. And it’s a good thing that the teaching staff is so multifaceted. They lead classes that not only focus on regional cuisines, but also cooking for events such as making side dishes for football-viewing gatherings or desserts to warm up cold nights.
